    You shouldn't have to give it a name if you don't want to. Windows will self-name the comuter based on a formula that it decides on.

Hanto is correct in saying "You shouldn't have to give it a name if you don't want to. Windows will self-name the comuter based on a formula that it decides on." but the install should not freeze regardless of which option.
Have a good look at the "data" side of your restore CD, make sure it is spotless with no scratches. If it is damaged see can you "borrow" an OS CD which matches the OS product on the license sticker which you will find stuck to the PC from someone else (idealy an OEM copy). You will be able to load windows using this and entering your "KEY". You may have some driver issues, but if your PC came with a 2nd Driver CD you won't have any problems, otherwise you may have to download them from the PC manufacturers site.

If this solution is of any help please remember to rate it.

Usually Dell will install the restore files on a hidden partition called D: when the computer comes from cold start press F12 multiple times there should be a black boot screen allowing you to select from a menu...

Windows not loading


I believe the boot key sequence is - CONTROL F11, should bring up a "boot from..." screen. from there you should be able to start a system restore. Personally it sounds as though your boot table got messed up.

Dell does have system restore disks available. Need model number, tag number, etc ... http://support.dell.com should be the right link to get that started. might take a couple weeks, each setup series of disks are specific to the make/model of the machine (so, generally non transferrable unless you know exactly what you are doing)

If you need more help, contact me through this site.

Create an ASR Floppy Disk loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); The following steps can create an ASR floppy disk from an ASR backup operation: 1. Format a 1.44 megabyte (MB) floppy disk and insert the disk into the floppy disk drive of the computer. 2. In System Tools, start the Backup program. When the Backup and Restore Wizard is displayed, click Next. 3. Click Restore Files and Settings, and then click Next. 4. In the What to Restore dialog box, select the media that contains the ASR backup. Ensure that the media is inserted. 5. Expand the Automated System Recovery Backup Set that corresponds to the ASR floppy disk that you want to create. 6. Expand the second instance of the drive letter that contains the system files. Expand the Windows_folder/Repair folder. 7. Click the following files from this repair folder: Asr.sif and Asrpnp.sif, and then click Next. 8. At the Completing Backup or Restore Wizard screen, click Advanced. 9. At the Where to Restore screen, set the Restore Files to: dialog box to Single Folder, and then set the Folder Name dialog box to the root of your floppy drive, for example, "A:\". 10. Click Next. The other options in this wizard are optional and do not affect the transfer of files to the floppy disk. When the wizard is finished, the files are copied to the location that you had previously specified. The ASR floppy disk is ready for use in the event of an ASR restore operation.

NOTE: The Asr.sif and Asrpnp.sif files must reside on the root of the floppy disk drive to be used during a ASR restore operation. Starting the Windows Recovery Console loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To start the Windows Recovery Console, use one of the following methods: • Use the Windows Setup floppy disks or the Windows CD-ROM to start your computer. At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press F10 or press 'R" to repair. After you start the Windows Recovery Console, you receive the following message: Microsoft Windows(R) Recovery Console

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality.
Type EXIT to exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer.

1: C:\WINDOWS

Which Windows Installation would you like to log on to
(To cancel, press ENTER)? After you enter the number for the appropriate Windows installation, Windows will then prompt you to enter the Administrator account password.

Note If you use an incorrect password three times, the Windows Recovery Console closes. Also, if the Security Accounts Manager (SAM) database is missing or damaged, you cannot use the Windows Recovery Console because you cannot have correct authentication. After you enter your password and the Windows Recovery Console starts, type exit to restart the computer.

When you use Windows XP Professional, you can set group policies to enable automatic administrative logon.

Use the Winnt32.exe utility with the /cmdcons option to add the Windows Recovery Console to the Windows Startup folder. This procedure requires approximately 7 megabytes (MB) of hard disk space on the system partition to hold the Cmdcons folder and files.
