Can you reboot and get into windows or is now corrupt?

What do you mean by 'uninstalled XP'??

You cant uninstall it unless you format the drive, in which case the recovery discs are now probably useless as they rely on a folder on the HDD called i386.

Recovery discs normally dont have the OS on them, they rely on the I386 folder to gather info about the computer and then restores it to the state when it was new.

If you can acess the system, reboot and go into the bios and change the boot sequence to CD, then insert the first recovery disc. then save the settings and the computer will reboot and start the recovery process again, this should clear up the error.

If it does not it will be because the i386 folder is missing in which case you can either explore the recovery discs for it or you will have to buy a copy of Windows XP.

    There is a chance, navigate to the i386 folder on the recovery disc, and look for a file called 'winnt32.exe' and run it.

    This will allow you to re-install WinXP.

    You will need your serial number though!

    If your system is not bootable into Windows XP, then you will need to run the file from a dos command prompt.

    on my back-up cd that i created I would type d:/i386/winnt.exe and this would run the install file.

    On your disc, the i386 folder may not be on the root of the cd, so the best thing to do is to put the cd into another PC and explore the disc to find out the true path to this folder...

    for example d:/recovery/winxp/i386/winnt.exe

    write it down then go back to the laptop and in the command prompt type in the full path as you wrote it down.

    You may get an error saying there is a file missing, dont worry about that, as you will get the installation wizard appear - choose 'new installation'.
    One of the options you will get is to format the HDD, make sure you choose it as you will then get a completely fresh installation free of any errors.

    Let me know how you get on.

Unfortunately, you will need to purchase another operating system disc, even though you have the product key. That key is assigned to the disc that came with the machine. Why exactly did the Xp disc of your father's not work?

I need the steps to take to install windows xp on my pre-loaded vista.


Hello there.

Unfortunately, even though you have paid for a Vista license, this does not mean you can just install any copy of Windows XP. You need to purchase either Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional. If its a business system you would be better with Windows XP Pro.

The reason for purchasing is that the software is licensed to you, you may wish to contact Toshiba and see if they can swap your Vista license for a Windows XP license. The other option is picking up a copy of Windows in the shop and installing it yourself. This is no easy task unless you have experience doing so.

Please try either contacting Toshiba to see what they say, or see about purchasing your own windows XP.

Hope this helps.

Re-installing windows xp from Recovery CD without losing data


You can just get a new windows XP CD then on that you will have an option to repair what ever your problem with the operating system, if your hard disk has a partition and you don't have any data from the C drive where your OS is installed you can format the C drive and your files are still on your D drive.
