Problem with Windows XP

I had both Windows XP Home and Windows XP Professional loaded on my desktop. I was running XP Professional and I kept getting a message that my software wasn't legal. I loaded the XP upgrade CD and then I started running under XP Home. Now I can't see my emails that are on the XP Professional side, and some of my software isn't loaded on this side, and I get a message that I have a duplicate name on the network. How can I get everything on one side with all my emails and programs combined?

As you installed another windows into your computer, you will need to install all the software again, and the emails need to be imported from the old location to the new location.

I lost my windows xp disc, get new one?


yes, your more than likely running hp home edition. so what you need to do is find someone with a xp home edition OEM software. you will install the software with that key and then when you have to register the software what you do is go to the telephone option then click change product key and use the key that is on your computer. it will update and then register it

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

When I boot up my computer before windows xp loads it asks which operating system I want to run,and it gives me 2 choices WINDOWS XP HOME, or, WINDOWS XP HOME. You use the up and down arrows to select...


simply you can remove the second option in the boot.ini.

go to the or right click the my computer at the desktop and the properties. and then click"advance TAb" in the start up and recovery, click "setting" and then "edit"

you will see this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

Timeout=30 change to: 0

and then delete this:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
after deleting you must save it.

and then restart the system

Please leave a comment b4 your rate, Thanks!

if you have windows 98 boot disk put that in, the firt thing you do is to go to f-disk and change the partions in it, then format c: drive. take out disk in A drive put in New windows XP CD and restart. the disk will run and install itself. and thats it. right now your partions are set to read only windows 95, 98, there are 2 options to choose from I belive the one you need is 32.
