Will not Reboot back into Windows?


Well you kinda messed up your windws instillation and the only way you are going to get the pc working again as a complete format and reinstall..

1.) boot from the windows xp cd,
2.) delete the partition to remain with one huge unpartationed spcce.
3.)select this unpartationed space and hit enter
4.)do a full format and let windows reinstall it self.

this will remeover everything on your harddrive including the messed up files and boot sector, rewrite you mbr etc..
WARNING IT WILL REMOVE EVERYTHING..

so you will need to reinstall all your drivers and software..

if you need further help or details reply here ..

Admin password


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/
If you reinstall Windows by booting up with the Windows installation CD you normally don't need the Windows admin password.

The hdd has been wipe and i,m trying to install windows 7 on my 2nd hand acer extensa 5235 with a media disk but it is telling me that the bootmgr is missing


You need to reinstall by booting from a install disk and make sure it is booting from the cd/dvd once this is done the install should complete with a working copy of windows on this computer.

I just assembly desktop with gigabyte motherboard and ADM CPU, RAM etc...after that i install os Window XP in the 500GB hard drive, the installation done successful, but the problem come out after i done...


Hello,

This is not a hardware problem, it's a BIOS problem and install problem. Here is my suggestion:

1. Go into the BIOS and set your boot as a) CD-ROM/DVD-ROM
b) Hard Drive
[and it does not matter what is next just as long as the first two are as above.]

2. Reinstall windows os, when ask you want to format drive and install. (This will erase EVERYTHING and reformat the drive space.)

3. When the install is finish, REMOVE the Windows disc and reboot the system.

This should solve your problem. Sometimes if a file was not installed correctly and you leave the install disk in, windows will try to reinstall the files and go from bad to worst.

Good Luck

I want window vista BUT I DONT KNOW HOW CAN I DO THIS


Hi there !

So tell me, what do you want to do with your computer? Do your computer crash and need to reinstall your Windows Vista operating system? Or you want to upgrade your operating system from Windows XP to Windows Vista.

For reinstalling Windows Vista, is it the same procedure when reinstalling Windows XP and Windows 7. Here is the link on how to reinstall operating system http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean. For Windows Vista, here is the procedure on how to reinstall Windows Vista.

1. Just put the installer CD into the CDROM Drive and open your computer
.
2. If message appear to press any key to boot from CD. Press any key to go to Windows Set up.

3. From there, just follow the installation procedure and put CD key if prompted and it will install itself the whole process. It will reboot for 3 times and don't press anykey when this happen. it will be finished within 20 mins.

For upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista, remember that all your files and softwares will be remove except for the hardware drivers. But not all the hardware drivers will be 100% working because upgrading the operating system will make your drivers outdated or not compatible with Windows Vista. If some drivers not working, just install the hardware drivers compatible with Windows Vista.

Here is the procedure.

1. Do not put the Windows Vista installer CD yet into the CDROM drive.

2. Open your computer and let it run to Windows XP program until is is finished to load your Windows settings.

3. Now insert your Windows Vista installer CD to the CDROM drive, it will pop up the upgrade installation wizard and just choose the upgrade installation. It will run the upgrading installation and just follow the instruction and it will be finish with 20 mins.

I hope this will help you and thank you for using FixYa !

How to reinstall windows XP


If your computer boots up you should be able to reinstall with your xp os disk, click on your cd drive & choose reinstall or new install, after that you'll probably have to go to windows update & update the system, if that does'nt work you may have to go to bios settings & set the cd rom as your boot devise, restart & install that way, after your done be sure to set the bios to thier default settings.

Boot Loder Problem when working with two operating System


best practice it when installing windows and linux install windows first and then linux. GRUB or LILO boot loader is much better then windows boot loader and very easy to reinstall. Mandriva cd should have a rescure feature that will allow you to reinstall the boot loader.

When you say "it isn't bootable from the cd", do you mean the cd isn't a bootable cd?, or the computer isn't configured to boot from a cd? If the latter, I suggest obtaining a bootable ME cd, but if the computer isn't configured to boot from a cd, depending on the computer motherboard, you will need to access the bios setup, either by pressing the 'DEL', 'F1', or 'F10' key during boot, then under a section called 'boot' or 'advanced-->peripherals' should be the settings on changing the boot sequence, if it's set to this sequence:- 1........REMOVABLE DEVICE 2........HD 3........CDROM 4........NETWORK (not available on some systems) You will need to change the sequence to:- 1.......CDROM 2.......REMOVAL DEVICE 3.......HD 4.......NETWORK (Not available on some systems) Then press the relevent key to 'save & exit', this will enable you to use an ME bootable cd to re-install ME on a clean hard drive.
