INSTALL A NEW HARDDRIVE TO MY HP PAVILION A1220N ERROR MESSAGE COMES UP BOOT MGR IS MISSING


You need to install an operating system like windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Linux OS. Your hard drive is blank now and needs programming. If you have a friend that can clone your old drive then they will be able to copy everything from your old drive as it was to your new one. Might need to contact a local computer technician to re-install windows for you if not sure. Also you need to consider the price of windows XP, Vista or 7 if you don't have a copy!! Good luck!!

Install Windows 7 or Windows Vista on a Pc Without DVD Media


For user who doesn’t want to waste a DVD disc to burn the ISO to physical media, and does not have WinPE (Windows PE) startup disc, here’s a workaround method to install Windows Vista and Windows 7 into physical computer’s hard disk drive or partition (volume) directly with ISO without writing or burning to disc. The without-disc installation method is useful especially during beta and RC period of new operating system in the making, where the new build and new versionis launching and publishing every now and then. This tutorial guide assumes that the new Windows 7 or Windows Vista will be installed and replaced the original existing operating system currently installed. The instructions can be modified slightly (mainly on hard disk partition used) to fit into need of readers who want to have a dual-boot, multi-boot, or simply just to upgrade install to new OS.

1. Install a virtual CD/DVD drive on existing Windows operating system.
2. Mount the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation DVD ISO image using the virtual drive.
3. Copy all files inside the virtual CD/DVD drive mounted with the ISO into any folder on any partition or hard disk drive not going to be used to install the Windows OS. For example, copy into E:\Windows7.
4. Copy the bootmgr and boot folders nested inside the copied folder (i.e. \Windows7) to root directory of system boot drive, typically C:\.

Note: For Windows Vista, users may need to use this step: Copy the bootmgr folder from E:\Windows7 to C:\ root directory, copy E:\Windows7\boot\boot.sdi file to same folder in C:\boot folder, and then copy bootsect.exe from the E:\Windows7\boot\ folder to C:\ drive.

Note: boot folder in system boot drive is hidden system folder.
5. Create a new folder named sources under the C:\ root folder.
6. Copy the boot.win file inside \Windows7\sources folder to the source folder created in the system boot drive, normally C:\.
7. Open a command prompt as administrator.
8. Run the following command (change the C to your drive path letter if applicable):

C:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt60 C:

For Windows Vista users who copied bootsect.exe to C:\ root folder, use the following command instead:

C:\bootsect.exe /nt60 C:

A successful message is the command completes successfully.
9. Change the name or label of the boot system partition local disk to BDCP or any name you prefer that easier to remember and type (in DOS command promot, use label command).
10. Restart the computer.
11. After booting up, the system will start the corresponding Windows installation process. Select the applicable language to install, time and currency format (regional settings locale) and keyboard or input method in the installation wizard dialog.
12. On the next screen, user will be presented with option to Install Windows. DO NOT press on Install Windows button, instead, click on Repair My Computer link on the bottom left corner.
13. In the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) System Recovery Options dialog window, click on Command Prompt to open a DOS Prompt window.
14. Run the format command to format the primary hard disk or partition to clean state:

format c: /q

Note: /q switch, which perform quick format can be omitted to full format. And if existing hard disk partition is of FAT32 filesystem format, use format c: /q /fs:ntfs to convert the file system to NTFS while formatting. Before formatting begins, the command may prompt for hard disk drive or partition label name, if so, enter accordingly (i.e. BDCP).
15. After format completed, start the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation process again by manually running the setup.exe located in the copied. Note that the setup.exe is not the one located on boot system drive which copied at later step, as the boot drive has been formatted. For example:

E:\Windows7\sources\setup.exe
16. Continue with installation procedures by following on-screen instructions as per normal practice.

The best bet is to borrow a copy from a neighbour/friend and use your CD key on the side of your laptop instead of his to register.

also get onto the police and report that repairman as he's charged you for a job he hasn't done and using illegal software.

I had a bad virus on my dell 8200. My friend took


Since your 'friend' took everything out of your hard drive you'll need a Windows CD (XP, VISTA). Without installing Windows back onto your system you're out of luck.

I would hope your friend has a copy of Windows he can use to restore your computer to a working order. If not, keep him as far away from your computer as possible!!

If you can't find a copy of Windows to install you'll have to purchase a copy at a retail store or perhaps online at TigerDirect.com or NewEgg.com.

How do you uninstall windows xp pro to the previous version?


If the copy of Windows XP Pro you have installed is already registered/verified as having been previously installed, you have three options:

1. Call Microsoft and purchase a COA (Cert of Auth) for your copy. This will get you a new "key" and will allow your copy to verify.

2. Simply buy a copy. If it's unavailable in a local store, search Google with something like, "Buy Windows XP Pro" for places to buy (I like Amazon.com for things like this, because one is perhaps slightly more likely to buy a REAL copy. :-))

3. Ditch Windows entirely. Have a computer savvy friend go to http://www.ubuntu.com and download/burn a copy of Ubuntu 8.04. Pop it into your CD drive and install a fully-working operating system, web browser (Firefox) and Email Client (Evolution--the equivalent of a full version Outlook). A full office suite and multimedia apps are included. Free. If you do not have a tech-savvy friend to ask, go to the website and request to have an installation CD sent to you for FREE.

Windows Vista Business vs XP


Vista is a huge change for you then. I understand your frustration.


It really just depends on what your used to, your PC specs,etcs..

You do not need to buy a new computer just to have XP.

What you can do is erase Vista off the new sony, and install XP. I can help guild you if you like, on the phone it's almost a 1-3 hour talk. Depending on your experience etc..


It's an easy process downgrading to XP, all you need is:
1.A XP Disk.(The Windows XP Operating System Disk)

That's it, you get that and we can down grade your Sony to XP.

I recommend people get vista for a secondary PC like have a desktop that you do your work on, and if you have a laptop get vista on it as your personal computer. But on the desktop being your work keep it as is.


Let us know what you decide,

Thanks and I hope this helps,
