Hello

As you have received the operating system preinstalled from HP, I suggest you contact HP support and see if they can provide you with the Windows XP operating system disk.

    The OEM of Windows 8.0/8.1 license is related to the motherboard and not the hard drive, so you can reuse the new hard disk provided his will in the same computer.

    About the old drive you need not to worry about the formatting as the old disk can never be reused. If you want to be sure, you can physically break the old disk with a hammer before throwing.

    Two points:

    1. If you want to delete some installed programs, do not make
    deletion of the folder they are in. That doesn't remove them only partially and
    can cause problems. Remove programs by in control
    Configuration/program Panel and features.

    2. a drive of 74 GB is a tiny disk these days. There are a number of
    things you can do to save space, but they are all basically
    temporary and you will soon find yourself in the same situation.
    The only real solution is to buy and install a larger capacity drive.
    Fortunately, they are very cheap these days; You can buy a 500GB
    drive for about US $65.

    You say that you have started from the XP CD, but something is wrong with that
    you do. Just boot from the CD and follow the prompts for a
    clean install. A new installation by formatting the

  • Is it possible to extract personal folders from my hard drive and transfer to an external hard drive if Windows does not start?

    Hello, I recently started my Windows XP Dell computer and it should start up normally unless it would run the ChkDsk utility. It would freeze then 68% on stage 1 and goes no further. I called the people of Dell and after trying so many solutions, including safe mode, safe mode with network and CommandPrompt, we ran the diagnosis. The hard drive and memory are fine, no errors. He concluded that it was the operating system and must be restored. However, I have important files, I need to extract from my hard drive and he recommended me an external hard drive. I bought it, but now I'm not sure how to extract my files from my drive hard if Windows can not even boot the desktop computer. Is it possible to extract these files without the use of the desktop computer?

    And you've burned the .iso image, and not as data? If Yes, then you have created a bootable CD. Put it in your optical drive and restart the computer. You may need to change the boot order in your BIOS. With some machines, you can get a temporary startup command menu by pressing a function such as F12 at startup. Other computers require that you enter setup and change the boot order in the optical drive first of all from there. When you start your computer it will be information about which key press to enter the BIOS (Setup) or give you the temporary boot order.

    After you changed the boot order to boot first from the CD and rebooted the computer, Knoppix will boot. Have your external hard drive connected to the computer before you start doing this. After Knoppix is finished booting, you will be in his office. It will be very similar to Windows. There are icons on the desktop for your internal hard drive and the external hard drive. Copy files from the internal to the external drive as you want. Review what I wrote about the use of Knoppix in my previous answer. MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

    Hi Carolinelightfoot,

    This error message occurs when the system could not read and write data to the registry file. The error indicates a problem with the registry.

    Method 1:

    You can run a Checkdisk to see if there are drive errors that can cause this problem.

    Check your hard drive for errors

    Note: When you run the disk check, there is a chance of losing the data that you can take a backup of important data before you run checkdisk.

    Method 2:

    You can also try to boot from a full version of Windows Vista installation disc and try to perform a restore of the system to WinRE (Windows Recovery Environment)

    What are the system recovery options in Windows Vista?

    Hope this information is useful.

    I use a PC and I used LR3. I'm a newcomer to LR, so patient with me! My problem is related to the import function.

    I have a photo library on an external hard drive. I've slowly been import previews of the photos selected from the library in my catalog, adding them during the import process - well. But now, I hit a problem. Another folder in my library contains several subfolders, each containing a number of photos (a mixture of RAW steals (naves) and jpg). I was importing found in my catalog each Subfile in turn, using the Add function, usually of the jpgs only from each Subfile. It works fine, until I reached a particular Subfile. For some reason when I try to import from it and select the secondary file as a Source, only the RAW (NEF) images appear in the preview pane (sorry, forgot the correct term for it!). I know that jpg files are in this auxiliary file on the external hard drive, because when I view its content in Windows, they are all there. But try as I can (choose the file under source, select the folder parent as a source, try to copy or move them, instead of adding them), nothing seems to work. Since they do not appear in the preview pane, I can't import them. It does appear that this a Subfile where the problem exists, but I don't see anything that is different from the others (names of files under all use the same structure - yyyy-mm-dd_custom name, and pictures in all subfolders are adopting the same denomination structure too - yyyy-mm-dd_sequential number_custom name.) NAVE/JPG. So what I am doing wrong? Any ideas please.

    It is possible that the images in this particular subfolder were taken in your camera in RAW + JPEG.  If so, you will need to go to preferences under the general tab and make sure the box "processing JPEG files files next to raw as separate photos" is checked.

    However, assuming that this is the case, there is really no reason to import the JPEG file if you already have the RAW file.
