Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

2 hd Thanks for your answer very much. After I do this, can I plug out the old hd, or it can also stay there? What exactly have to be deleted? I have written there: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer I can put the value back if i want later? The 2 installed windows will not make problems in the future? I have an other problem now. I think I was hurrying a bit with it, but I installed the motherboard drivers and graffic card onto new hd, but after restarting the windows doesn t want to start at all. May I still ask for your help? Thanks

    How can i know which is dis1 and disk0? I Have to be sure, I will have my windows on my NEW HD.

    In BIOS, in boot priority the new one is on first place, the old on second.

    And I can t remove the old hd, because then after restarting it is written in black screen: Boot failure insert system disk and press enter.

    I did it! Now everything works normally, although My old C is still as a "system drive" although its already formatted. But thank you for your help very much!

Leave the other drive in; no the other windows will not cause problems cos its not set as boot 'C' drive, you can deletewindoes off the drive or format it within windows.

I don't think that the drivers you installed are the cause of the boot problem it may be the other drive, remove old drive and try again, but make sure in the bios (F2 or Del on boot up) it is correctly recognising the new drive.

delete this path:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer

My new yahoo account is I should have deleted the old account How did I get confused with this and delete the wrong one?


May I just reiterate what you have said. You created a new yahoo account. The problem is, as what I have understood, you have deleted your new yahoo account instead of the old one. Now, you asked how did you get confused with it. My answer is, I have no idea at all. I was also wondering why did you delete the new one instead of the old one. Maybe, you were not concentrating during that time. I think, you yourself is the best person to answer your question. Thanks. It's funny.

Where to find a wire diagram for a motherboard_productimage_ga-945gzm-s2_3.0_big Just got this new mother board & would really to do this with a wiring diagram. lol Just in case lol. Thanks in...


I don't understand, are you building this board and you want to know where to put the traces???

Did you not receive an instruction manual and software and probably a CD with this new board?

While I am not familiar with this exact device, it is my experience that all connections are standard for the form factor board you have. If your new board is the same form factor as the old, you can only plug it in correctly. If it is a diffrent form factor, you can't plug most stuff, including the power, at all. The sound connector will be marked as will the HD drive activity light and other small conectors. The drives will be IDE or SATA. The floppy connector, if any will be near the IDE, if any.

While I didn't understand your question, if I failed to guess the correct answer, please ask again.

Computer is not starting up in standard windows mode. dell media keeps popping up and when i exit the program my pc shuts down. i tried ctrl and f8 it brings me to a short menu. (1) continue restart...

Are you running Window XP? Is your computer set to hibernate? If so, you may have a hibernation error...

If I understand correctly, while pressing F8 during bootup you received a message that states:
"System restart has been paused:
Continue with system restart.
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu"

You may wish to read this article about the error.

Then, go ahead and do that second option. What hibernate does is write a big file to the HD with the exact state of Windows. That is a "restoration" file. If hibernate doesn't work, deleting the restoration file will often allow the computer to restart normally.

Good luck! Please post back with your results.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Help! the green light flashes then nothing happens

The exact same thing just happened to me (WD elements 500 gig) and it's only about 10 months old. I called the customer help line (on the official website) and after they asked me what the serial number of my HD was they were going to send me a new power supply. Simple as that. They said they'd be able to send it out early next week. I'm hoping that the HD didn't get fried and it's just the power supply but what you've described is EXACTLY what is happening to mine.

Try removing your HD from the system then load the game.

If that works insert the HD and try again if the image still stays you may need to delete everything off your HD.
