I have a laptop with windows xp home on one partition and windows 2000 on the other. I want to remove windows 2000 and instal a fresh copy of xp as the one that is on it is giving me the activation error...


If you dont have any files on your computer that you dont want to loose, you can do a full format,
reebooting your computer with the XP cd in its tray.
If your BIOS settings are right you should get the
option something like: "install os from disk"
push any button.
then you able to access the installation meny,
there you can choose to delete all partitions,
enabling you to install XP to just one partition of your disk.
Hope this helped,if it did, please vote!

Tip

Dual Boot Xp & windows 7


First you have to create partition.You need at least two partition. One in which you intall Xp and other for win 7. WARNIG BACK UP YOUR DATA BEFORE THIS.*(You can create partion by any hard drive manager you can make a hard drive partition in control panel>administrative tool>create & manage hard drive partition)
Now install xp first in one partition. If you have pre installed then avoid this step.
Now install Win 7 in another partition.
After you restart the machine will ask to chose your os. & just select the required OS.

If any problem appears then just put win XP disk & repair it.

You cant install win Xp after windows 7.
You have to format win 7 before installing Xp.
Commiting any of trick or Tweak you need to backup your data in another HD partition
WARNIG BACK UP YOUR DATA

If your Vista still work, go to the control panel> administrative tools> computer management > disk management > create an additional partition (larger then my documents folde size)
Move your files to this partition then install xp.

A few tips
  • Make sure there xp drivers for each componenet
  • Use driver magician and find xp drivers (check the pc mfg site and download all xp drivers and put them on this partiton too.
  • Use a partition program (dos) and format the vista partition and the hidden partition that vista creates or xp won't go in properly

Operating system not found


You can't insert a Hard drive from another PC because when it was installed on the old PC it was setup to work with the hardware for that particular computer.

You will need to reinstall a fresh copy of windows on it to make it work with the new PC it's in.Boot from CD run windows setup, format the drive then do a fresh install.

This should fix the problem, if you have any new info or need further help with any of that post back. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Ubuntu Installation


If your able to see the Windows Setup page, and get as far as your partitions, I would suggest deleting the partitions on the hard drive (make sure you know what your doing before trying this), as Ubuntu is mounted normally on a filesystem which Windows can not read (EXT2/3 for Linux - Fat32 / NTFS for Windows).

Once you have deleted all partitions, you can then create a partition (I'd recommend just clicking Install) and then chose the second option to format (not quick) for NTFS.

This then does a "secure" format of your hard drive, setting you up for a nice stable installation.

Apart from that, why don't you try jumping onto Ubuntuforums.org for Ubuntu Help, since Ubuntu is a much better Operating System (OS) than Windows, and there is a great community for helping people.
