Try hitting F8 right when Windows starts up. You will get a text menu with options. Try "last known good configuration" and see if that helps. If it doesn't you may be able to get it working by reinstalling XP and choosing "Repair",which will try and replace all your windows files with the original ones.

If that doesnt work then you will have to reload XP from scratch. If you have to do that then install service pack 2 before any other software or drivers.

Hi there.
Use the Vista CD to create the new partition, but first you have to delete the old partition first, (the 220GB partition not the 10GB one because that will be the recovery partition).
Get a calculator and work out your new partition, for example 50GB is 50x1024MB so that will be 51200MB.
When you have deleted the 220GB partition select NEW and input your newly worked out partition and carry on from there, to activate the other partition just format it.

Please post back with the results and for anymore help if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

You may have a manufacturer recovery partion that windows installer see but it's uwriteable as it's protected. The usual partion is C:
Try again with C: as the partion, if it's not C: then look for the biggest partion, usually in Mb's.

On the mini 1000 - tried to install Windows xp (tried Vista and 2000 also) after a system crash. Since there is no dvd/cd drive I used an external drive with a usb interface. It starts to install and then...


Hi, you need to ensure your hard drive is set up correctly! To install XP first press the F1 key during bootup, select the primary boot device (your external drive) in BIOS, save changes and reboot, allow files to be installed, but when finished, select delete operating system, partion hard drive and reformat, allow system to reboot, then commence new installation of XP. If your problem persists it is most likely a bad section on your hard drive, and will need replacing.
Hope this helps

I have installed Ubantu in my aspire 5050. Now I want to install win XP so that I can open MS Office from Linux


do you want to make a dual-boot system? you must have installed windows OS first and leave a non-partitioned drive in your hard Disk. Then you can install Ubuntu next, instaling it to the non-partitioned drive. When the PC boots, you will be prompted to what OS to boot.

Anyway, you can Install Windows XP in any free Drive. But it is dangerous since Windows Installer might destroy your Ubuntu installation files.

Partition


Hi,
The solution to your problem is very simple.
First make two partions of your harddrive, To do so:
-Open up control panel.
-Click open Administrative Tools.
-Click open Computer Managment.
-Then Click on Disk Managment on the right side.
-Choose your main Harddrive, Right click and click Shrink Drive
The amount you Shrink will became your second partions that you can put any OS you want.


After you Have made two partions Install the Vista Os on the second partion(its usually named D:).Soon after the installation is done choose vista from the OS choice menu.
-Log into Vista
-Click on the Drive that has XP installed into and by using the ".exe" files of the software you want to install. Install the software onto vista.
And there you go, now you have:
-Vista N XP on two seperate drives.
-And your vista has the software you wanted.

Please Rate, Thanks

I can't make format, partions or install windows.


Hi shlmughni,

If you're trying to format this drive, and you have nothing on it you want, then I would suggest that you use a windows 98 boot disk HERE. And first thing you need to do is load dos by putting the floppy disk in your drive A: after you create it from that site of course. Then allow dos to boot up. I'd opt for the allow cd rom option when it asks. After you get a dos prompt A: type in fdisk. Go to the display partions section and see what your drive is partioned as? Once you find that out, I'd delete the partion from the main menu choice delete partion. After that create a new partion from the main menu. Creating a new Dos partion will allow you to choose the size of the partion you want, then after that it will create your new Dos partion. When that's done, exit fdisk, and go to the A: prompt and type in format c: This will format the drive all over again, and give you a clean fresh starting point in which you install your OS.

Good Luck

Hard disk problem


If your Wundows vista is a full install program you should have deleted and created the partion then formatted the new partition before installing windows vista. Try this again if you hard drive is stuffed you will need a new one Im afraid but windows vista will tell you this before it installs itself. Goodluck!!!!!
