I have found that if using a previous used hd and just reformatting the drive wouldn't allways work with some software and some pci cards.
I found out that using a data eraser first on the hd,then installing windows fully,then add the add-ons(pci Boards) and software as directed works fine.

(data eraser) my software overwrites with 00 all of the drive including the system files.

Advent 7084. Tried to change back to XP from Win7. Reformatted HD but install did not complete. Now machine will not run after Intel splash screen. I have tried pressing F10 repeatedly after switching on....


Did you use the Advent's built-in reformat and rebuild to get it back to XP Pro?

If you have a separate XP Pro CD or DVD, as opposed to that in a 'hidden' partition on the HD, your best best, so long as you have the installation key, is to start fresh with formatting the HD and, if it is large enough, splitting the HD into two partitions.

Then use one of them for the actual XP Pro partition. Build that first partition into XP Pro, and when it is working properly, only then do you format the second partition, and make it into the kind of space you need it to be.

You should have the ability to make it work now. So long as you have a legitimate installation key for XP Pro, you should be able to make this work properly.

while reformating the lan drivers and other related drivers are being wiped out. so load your lan driver software again. if you find it hard to get 1, then goto www.hp.com and refer your model, then get all drivers from the site. to be more sure if your drivers are not installed,go on device manger, and check the question mark(?) with yellow colour, all those are not installed..load it

I have a Fujitsu Lifebook P-2040 that I just reformatted. I'm going to install Windows 2K Professional (don't have the restore disks for XP Home). After I reformatted and restarted, nothing happens. There...


Is there any reason for your preference for Win 2K over Win XP Pro? XP Pro would be a better choice over Win 2K.

You may be able to selecting the CD as the alternate boot device by pressing F12 as the laptop is booting up.
I am not familar with BIOS key on your laptop but you can try these keys on a cold boot up (don't use a warm boot up - Ctrl+Alt+Del keys). Try:-
Del
F1
F2
F10
Ctrl+F1 or F2
Alt+F1 or F2
Esc+F1 or F2
Once you get into the BIOS you can change the boot order, set the CD as the first device. You should be able install Windows from the CD.

If these keys don't work go to the Fujitsu WEB site to download the manual, whilst you are there you will also need to download the drivers for your model laptop the Windows version of the devices that are installed on your laptop eg. audio, video, modem, LAN etc. These need to be installed after the Windows installation.

Xp format problem


Assuming that you have both XP's on the drive, when it boots up, have you selected and tested both? OR

Did you format the entire drive and wipe the old system off, replacing it with the new install?

The simplest why to fix is to boot up on the Pro CD and format the entire drive and install new system. It sounds like your old info may still be there, but you can't get to it. Try the different boot option and burn your desired data to keep to a cd, then do the simplest. Don't worry about the system drivers, you can recover them from the restore cd or download them from the Dell.
The Pro XP will be able to recover your system enough to get the drivers on line.

No big deal, just time consuming.

Good Luck
