Doesn't Boot after New Install

After the OS Winxp has installed some of its files, it needs to restart to continue installing or to setup the installed files. As soon as the system diagnostics is over it should boot up to the new hard drive... where the initial setup had taken place, but it seems that it just stops there, the cursor on the top left of the screen blinking it seems forever. It would boot on the CD but not on the Hard Disk after it restarts itself. I tried the hard disk to another computer and it worked perfectly.  I had already changed my cables and even the power supply, well, it is still the same. So anyone can give me an SOS on this situation?

    I did ma'am but all failed... I tried to use the hard disk to another computer and its funny from there it continued the unfinished setup.
    I'm beginning to think that the IDE controller chip is faulty... Ok I'll check it again... thanks... c ya later

    I had it already working... I cleaned the contact points of the DDR slot then placed the memory and the error is gone. Anyway thanks chrisking21 for helping.

Hi,

Repair the Operating System.

  • Insert your Windows XP CD, save the bios settings and exit. Soon "Press any key to boot of CD" will appear on the screen, hit the space bar to continue.
  • Now setup will inspect your hardware and software, it then will load various files required for the repair. Just wait and be patient, this may take a few moments.
  • Soon a menu will appear (as pictured below), press enter to continue.
  • Now the "End User Agreement" Press "F8" if you agree, "ESC" if you don't.
  • You will now have to select the installation you wish to repair. Usually there is only one, but sometimes, there may be 2 or more (i.e. you have done a parallel install to resolve a problem), use the up/down arrow key to select the install, and then press "R" to continue.
  • Setup will now examine the disk be patient, it can take a few minutes.
  • Setup will go through a percentage - 1 to 100%
  • A screen will soon appear. Press "F3" to continue
  • Now setup will reboot system, wait 15 seconds or just press enter.
  • Now it is time to see if this has solved your problems.
Regards,
Riztech

Installing Windows XP

Reinstalling your Operating System is one of the methods of computer maintenance, and is a bit complex.
With these steps, you will successfully install Windows XP into your computer.
These steps are similar to other Windows OS installations (Vista, Windows 7).
Below is the detailed procedure of installing Microsoft Windows XP:
  • Before installing Windows XP or any other operating system, you should backup all your data. Data can be backed up on a separate partition, if the hard disk is partitioned or you can back it up on external storage devices like CDs or on a network.
  • Restart the computer and go to the Setup menu by pressing F2 and change the first boot device to CD, press Esc and save settings.
  • Insert the CD labeled Microsoft Windows XP into the computer and restart the computer.
  • When the pc restarts, a message will appear telling you to press any key to boot from CD, press a key immediately the message appears and the setup process will begin.
  • After the files have been loaded, Windows will start and it will give you an option of repairing using Recovery Console by pressing “R” or continue with setup by pressing “ENTER”; press enter to continue with setup.
  • Setup will list all your disk partitions, highlight the partition where you want to install Windows, this is mainly partition “C”, press “D” to delete the partition, then press “L” to confirm.
  • Highlight the partition you deleted, and then press “C” to create a new partition, press “ENTER” to create the partition.
  • Press “ENTER” again to install Windows on the New (Raw) Partition you have created.
  • Format the partition using NTFS file system.
  • After format has completed, Windows will restart and setup will prompt you to boot from CD again. Ignore the message and let setup continue automatically.
  • Follow the next steps which will ask you to setup the system Time and Date, Network and enter a serial key, until setup finishes.
  • After setup has finished, Windows will restart and will welcome you for the first time; Microsoft Windows XP will have successfully been installed on your computer.

Do a windows repair. Boot from WinXP CD. After that starts up, it will ask you if you want to repair using recovery console or continue with setup. Choose continue with setup. Press F8 for Agreement, then it will ask you again to [R]epair. This will copy all the critical OS files back into your system.

Epson 4490 photo scanner drivers will not install on winxp system


I'm running Windows XP and have had similar problems - where the install process informs of a problem (at beginning of install) and to "Restart and try again".

Eventually resolved issue by selecting "Custom" install, then ticking all the selection boxes as had been automatically done in "Recommended" install - then continue with the install.

All sections of software now installed correctly.
