It depends if theEmachine software has windows built in or not, if not and you have a seperate windows disc then the operating system has to go on before any software

Machine comes on but will not load windows


hard drive failure, possibly due to a virus, go buy a new harddrive and install windows on it and be careful, you can re-route your old harddrive by switching the pins to slave and then connecting it to the pc while off and unplugged after installing new hard drive and windows. then you can access your photos and such on the old drive before opening the old drive in windows scan the whole drive with a virus software.

Replace a harddrive in an emachine. Not sure how to get to the setup on a T6538 desktop to see a new harddrive? Do I hold down a key when I turn it on?


No you must initialize it first via a Windows install DVD, and Formatting and Partitioning it. A HD must be setup to accept the software it has to be Formatted, and have Partitions made and set to active for the PC to "See" the drive,& for the Operating system to use it. Also you must enter the BIOS first so that the PC can identify that a drive is actually attached, and save those settings and reboot, now you can format etc. This can be done without a Windows DVD by using 3rd party software such as UBCD, www.ultimatebootcd.com/
Download and burn to CD boot off it, and then you can do all described. But the Windows DVD will do it all, and then one can simply continue on and install Windows after doing it all.

Hard drive crash, not usable at all; downloaded xp drivers and computer drivers but cannot get them installed. Hard drive not recognized.


When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.

Partition


Hi,
The solution to your problem is very simple.
First make two partions of your harddrive, To do so:
-Open up control panel.
-Click open Administrative Tools.
-Click open Computer Managment.
-Then Click on Disk Managment on the right side.
-Choose your main Harddrive, Right click and click Shrink Drive
The amount you Shrink will became your second partions that you can put any OS you want.


After you Have made two partions Install the Vista Os on the second partion(its usually named D:).Soon after the installation is done choose vista from the OS choice menu.
-Log into Vista
-Click on the Drive that has XP installed into and by using the ".exe" files of the software you want to install. Install the software onto vista.
And there you go, now you have:
-Vista N XP on two seperate drives.
-And your vista has the software you wanted.

Please Rate, Thanks
