Can not boot from Win XP Pro without an auto restart


Hi Jeff,

I see you are having issue installing windows, getting an error the the Boot Manager is missing...

The windows Disc that you have is this a burnt copy? possible that the installation files on the Windows you have is incomplete.

But if I may ask before you tried installing this Windows what windows did you have on your computer?

Have you tried booting the disc directly from the CD drive instead of installing it from within windows.

Go into BIOS and change the boot configuration of you Computer make sure the the CD/DVD drive is selected as the primary boot option before the hard drive, once that is done restart your computer make sure that you Windows disc is in the cd/dvd drive, you should get a prompt on the upper left saying to boot from cd press any key - press Enter right away once you see that prompt this should boot from the disc for the installation to continue but if still it looks for the Boot Manager the copy of your installation disc maybe incomplete.

Also you can try to wipe clean you hard drive and try again again with the installation.

Hi there, i am new to this site & hope you can help, i have been given windows xp pro + service pack 2 but have no installation code to install whith, i have tryd the unnatended folder but the pro key...


The 25 digit code actually comes with the cd and is not on the cd but is a yellow label that was in the box when it was purchased.
I would go back to the person who gave it to you and ask them for that label. My guess is the disk came with a computer that has the windows sticker on the side and that is why you do not have the license number.
Unfortunately the only way to get a legal license is to buy it.

I have valid product key how to get Windows XP activation key


your product key is your ticket to get activated with windows and is also you activation key, which called product key by Microsoft,

whatever windows you have installed on your system I believe when you installed your windows you were asked to enter the product key on the onset of starting windows during installation, if I may ask are you getting an error when entering you Product key or are you getting a pop up that you windows is Not genuine? cause if your product key is valid then you should not be having any issue regarding your product key, was you installer of windows purchased from a retailer or Microsoft itself? if from Microsoft call them they can help you out, if from a retailer and the product key is not being accepted call them and inform them that the disc and the product key don't match they should replace at last the disc or give you the correct product key for the disc sent to you, if the disc you have came from the laptop or computer manufacturer then you will need to call them it is possible that they have a way to correctly install the Operating system without having an error.

Back up your personal data like pictures and word documents if you have some in the system just to be on the safe side ^_^

are you installing windows 7 over an existing Vista operating system or an XP? if you are then you try installing windows 7 over the old operating system installed on your pc but in the installation process you will have an option to select upgrade or custom/advance option which you should select to be able to use your product key and should not give you any errors after the installation. ^_^

I think you have these options:-
1. Explain your problem to PC World and see if they can help.
2. Borrow a Windows XP Home Edition disc from a friend.
3. Download a Windows XP Home Edition disc from the internet. I don't know how legal this is, but as you have already got the legal copy installed and are only using the disc to install other programs you might be OK.

On boot computer does not see Hard drives


Chose boot sequence to boot directly from the HDD . Also check if the Hard Disk is OK by connecting it to another PC. Check too that the power cables are snug tight and none of the pins are bent in the IDE slot. Now try booting first in safe mode & if successful go ahead and boot normally....sodeep
