Can I install Windows XP Professional on an Emonster 600 ?

Yes you can...

Installing Windows XP on a Emonster 600 is the same process as installing Windows XP on any Windows-compatible personal computer. The process is not difficult, and can be completed quickly.

#1 Insert the Windows disc and restart your computer. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press a key. Windows will begin the set-up process.
#2 When a list of hard drive partitions appears, delete each of them by pressing "D" to delete and "L" to confirm deletion. When finished, you should only have one choice: "unpartitioned space."
#3 Press "Enter", then format using the NTFS file system. Do nothing while Windows begins to install.
#4 Wait for Windows to restart. When the process continues, enter the product key, the time and time zone, and your name when prompted to do so. Allow the installation to continue; it may take some time.
#5 when Windows restarts again, continue the process using the on-screen instructions. The process will vary depending on your hardware configuration.
#6 Connect to the Internet and activate Windows once you reach your desktop. If you can't, you can also activate Windows over the phone. Installation is complete.

I can't install Windows XP

Motherboards are designed for an operating system, so after time they are not designed to run new versions. If you check the website of the mfg of your motherboard you will see what is the newest version of windows can run on it. It mostly due to the mfg and the drivers designed for the OS.

Take the sound hardware, if the mfg does not make a driver for xp,then even if windows does install
some of the hardware might not have a driver.

With the prices being at there lowest, look at a new or rebuilt system.

Laptop Won't Boot


Vaios are prone to faulty Ram ( memory Slots ) The only suggestion i can offer.
Is to remove and re-seat the CPU. this ocassionally solves the problem. if the laptops been dropped or banged. the cpu may have worked loose. but you,ll be looking at either ram or processor. failing this you can assume that theres a motherboard fault.

Thankyou For using Fixya.

Windows not booting

The problem is that your trying to use a hard drive with an operating system that was installed on a different computer, there will be all kinds of problems with that. Format the drive and do a clean install of windows and that should fix your problem. Hope this helps

Xp is not offcial

Please expalin.
I know you can Upgrade to XP at a discount from NT (actually it works from any pervious version of Windows to XP) but there is no Update from NT to XP.
I've been doing IT work for a long time, and I am a registered Microsoft Partner, and I have never heard of an Update to XP.

If you do mean upgrade to XP, here's how I would do it.
Get a copy of XP (preferably Pro, the upgrade version is fine, and you can still fine it a number of places). What they don't tell you about upgrade versions is that it is a full copy of XP, that just have a sequence that need the previous key to continue.
Use the XP disk to format, and begin the load.
During the install, it will ask for the qualified version of Windows you are upgrading from. You put in the NT CD, and it will continue the install (you just have to swap CD's back and forth a couple of times).
The previous version does not need to be installed.

If the NT is the only disk you have, and you don't want to purchase the XP upgrade, there is a whole process that you have to go through.
You do have to create 3 floppies that have the boot and load sequence.
This is not a real user friendly install, but it can be done.

I personaly would spend the time and money to find a copy of XP. Here again, your end product is going to be something you are much happier with.

About Linux fedora and XP

Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora.
If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.
