    I'm sorry, but you will need a Windows 9 x / ME drive to provide during the XP installation from the XP disc is a version upgrade. There is no way around that. See if you can find a friend with an older operating system disk (not a recovery disk) to support qualification. Otherwise, you would need to buy the full version (not upgrade) of XP to install on the computer. MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

  • How can I reinstall windows after replacing the hard drive? Laptop did not come with a disc.

    My internal hard drive went bad in my laptop, easy to replace and relatively inexpensive. However, the laptop came not with the windows disk. So, how can I reinstall windows once I replaced the hard drive?

    Basically, you have two choices. You can communicate with the person who made the computer and see if they can provide either a set of Windows Vista restore disks (I would assume) or an installation for Windows Vista (probably OEM) DVD. If the second choice, determine if you will need to download device drivers or software packages from their web site. OR, you can purchase the operating system of your choice, retail. The wisdom is that, if this is your choice, you see if you will need the device drivers and get those of the web site of the manufacturer.

    Once you have the disks, install in the usual way.

  • How can I reinstall windows 7that I deleted by mistake

    How can I reinstall windows 7 I have somehow deleted by mistake

    Method may vary according to the resources you have.

    1. For some, you press a certain key combination at an appropriate place in the boot process. The machine will use the files in a hidden partition on the hard drive to get us back to the State as delivered. Of couse, this deoes does not work if the machine has no such partition partition either because he has never done or has been deleted or damaged some time after the initial installation. Check the computer manufacturer web site or documents accompanying the machine to determine if this applies to your machine and, if so, the keys used.
    2. For others, locate you and use a disk or a set of disks that came with the computer. You will place the DVD in the boot from the DVD drive and follow the prompts on the screen to install the OS and, possibly, the applications and utilities provided by the manufacturer.
    3. For others still, find you the retail DVD and reinstall, as it has done before.
    4. And still others, you must use a value recovery disk you did once the computer has been configured with a program/utility provided by the manufacturer of the computer or you got to a 3rd party or one provided by Windows 7.
    5. And, in certain circumstances, depending on how the system has been removed, a recovery can be performed using a partition recovery utility is included in Acronis Disk Director (not free).

    After that, you need to maybe reinstall applications and backups user files or install media or re-downloads/downloads.

    I think most of the technicians know how to use a recovery partition, but the real problem for the recovery of Windows 8, it is each brand (oem) will need an installation disc for their particular model. We can install a Dell windows 7 cd on any PC OEM and after doing the updates, it will itself attest. With windows 8 you can even not windows to be installed on the PC if the disk you put in does not support security in the BIOS.  In other words, you need the proper (HP, Dell, etc.) model numbers version of Windows 8 recovery CD similarly be able to install it.
    If you are a system integrator or building a PC for yourself I think that the normal OEM cd should work as long as you you know number OEM KEY or product key. Its the BRAND PC which will be a pain in the buttocks in the future for technicians who have to reinstall Windows 8 on a VIRGIN hard drive AGAIN.

  • How can I reinstall windows 7 after replacing the hard drive?

    How can I reinstall windows 7 after replacing the hard drive? do I have to call microsoft or I can retrieve it somehow to the old hard drive?

    Well, that certainly puts a different point of view on this subject.

    There are data recovery services that can recover data from disks that have suffered from various types of failures. However, they are quite expensive. Unless the data is particularly useful, it is generally not useful.

    If your Windows 7 is an OEM version, installed on the computer when you bought it, the manufacturer could have a recovery disk on sale. If it was a retail copy and you always have the appropriate product/serial number, you can get a DVD of their team of parts replacement.

  • How can I reinstall Windows 7 Home premium on my MSI FX600 OA if the recovery partition does not work?

    So, I bought this laptop MSI FX600. It had Windows 7 Home premium OA (OEM I guess). It also contains a recovery partition.

    After awhile, I had to reinstall windows, so I downloaded an iso of windows, put it on a USB key and reinstalled. but the product key doesn't work though I should be able to use it because it is not used by any other computer. How can I reinstall windows and activate with the product key OEM on the bottom of the laptop? somehow the recovery partition no longer works, so that will not help either. Also, where can I download the iso right for reassembly?

    too bad that I already fixed it. I installed the version English, but anyway my laptop only supports the Dutch version. Thank you for your abundant answers.
