What is the problem or how to install Windows XP Embedded?

Sorry but there is no trial version of Windows XP Embedded.  For all practical purposes, all editions of Windows XP have been "withdrawn". Carey Frisch

  • HP Pavilion desktop computer - 550-123 a: accidentally installed Windows 8 on Windows 10.

    Hello

    We bought this PC just 2 weeks, and it came with Windows 10. My father disliked windows 10 so it has installed windows 8 from a disc installation and now internet no longer works. The internet went through Ethernet cable direct to the modem. I have reset the modem, but it is not getting an IP address assigned to the NIC card. I tried to force an IP address to be assigned, but it still does not work.

    How can go back us to windows 10? I tried HP restore, but it only shows options for windows 8.

    Help, please!

    Thank you!

    Since Win8 is out, embedded OEMs their product keys in the UEFI firmware on motherboard - and stopped including print on stickers on the PC.

    You can reinstall Win10 by install media from this link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install?ocid=ms_wol_win10

    Because your PC is already registered for Win10, if you get a window asking for a product key, just choose the option to ignore that.

    After Win10 is re-installed and connect you to the Internet, the PC will be automatically reactivated.

    Good luck

  • Failed to initialize and install Windows 8.1 - Yoga 2 13

    Hello world

    I got a Yoga 2 13 who has recently had problems starting where it can no longer start Windows. I used an Ubuntu Live USB to see if I could access the HARD drive but no luck there, said that there is something wrong with it. Decided to install Windows 8.1 fees but I'm having issues with the installation. I boot USB bootable with 8.1 and it stuck at a black screen with only the cursor work. I started out in the same on a Yoga Pro 2 USB port and I get directly to the Windows installation screen. What could be the problem here? I see again the HDD in the BIOS is not quite dead.

    Thank you

    Marco

    Well, it seems that the hard drive has some bad sectors, so I just replaced it with an SSD. Now my next question is, the CD key that is embedded in the BIOS is for Windows 8, but which version? Family, professional? What image of Windows is good?

  • Laptop HP 15-R014TX: lost 8.1 pre-installed Windows.

    Recently, I tried to install Ubuntu on my PC, but accidentally ubuntu installation formatted the entire disk, including the recovery disc. Now that I am running Ubuntu and want to install window 8.1 again but didn't have the key to it. Is there anyway to recover the key.

    The key is embedded in the BIOS, so if you run the installation media for the right version (Home or Pro and not retail OEM) it will activate only. The other problem you'll have is to get the boot to Ubuntu grub loader works after installing Windows again the long side.

  • System repair of Windows XP Embedded without the help of his CDs?

    I use a CCTV using the Windows XP Embedded platform. Recently, due to some problems, I'm not able to boot the system and that's what suggests to repair windows using the CD because of the missing "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM" file I have lost my CD of Windows XP Embedded, but I have original Windows XP CD. Can I use the Windows XP CD and repair system?

    For this error, always start with a chkdsk/r from the XP Recovery Console.

    The question was preceded by a loss of power, aborted reboot or abnormal termination? (This includes the plug pulling, buttons power and removing the battery).

    These can cause corruption in the file system that must be fixed before you do anything else.

    If none of these events occurred (or even if they have not taken place), you must verify the integrity of your file system before anything else (especially "try" things).

    There is zero logic to begin to try to begin to try to modify or copy files to a hard drive that has a corrupted file system, so this must first be fixed using the XP chkdsk program and run chkdsk on your hard drives may solve your problem completely.

    Use the XP Recovery Console to check the file system on your HARD drive and fix the problems and then try to start your system - this may be all you need to do.  Or, you are welcome to just start trying things that might work.

    Boot into the Recovery Console Windows using an XP bootable installation CD.

    If you have no XP bootable media (or aren't sure you have) create a bootable XP Recovery CD of Console and don't forget (no support for XP not necessary).

    This is not the same as recovery disks that might have come with the acquisition of the system store.

    You can make a bootable Recovery Console CD by downloading an ISO file and burn it to a CD.

    The ISO bootable image file you need to download is called:

    xp_rec_con. ISO

    Download the ISO from here:

    http://www.mediafire.com/?ueyyzfymmig

    Use a new CD and this simple and free program to burn your ISO file and create your bootable CD:

    http://www.ImgBurn.com/

    When you install ImgBurn, DO NOT install the Ask toolbar.

    Here are some instructions for ImgBurn:

    http://Forum.ImgBurn.com/index.php?showtopic=61

    It would be a good idea to test your bootable CD on a computer running.

    You may need to adjust the computer BIOS settings to use the CD-ROM drive as the first device to boot instead of the hard drive.  These adjustments are made before Windows tries to load.  If you miss it, you will need to restart the system again.

    When you start on the CD, follow the instructions:

    Press any key to boot from CD...

    Installing Windows... going to pronounce.

    Press 'R' to enter the Recovery Console.

    Select the installation that you want to access (usually 1: C:\WINDOWS)

    You may be asked to enter the password (usually empty).

    You should be in the folder C:\WINDOWS.  It's the same as the

    C:\Windows folder that you see in Solution Explorer.

    The Recovery Console allows base as file commands: copy, rename, replace, delete, chkdsk, fixboot, fixmbr, cd, etc.

    For a list of the commands in the Recovery Console, type help at the prompt of commands or read on here XP Recovery Console:

    http://www.Microsoft.com/resources/documentation/Windows/XP/all/proddocs/en-us/recovery_console_cmds.mspx?mfr=true

    A good idea before you start things must first verify the integrity of your file system by using the chkdsk command.

    In the command prompt window, run the chkdsk command on the drive where Windows is installed to try to fix any problems on the afflicted player.

    Running chkdsk is fine, even if he finds no problem.  It won't hurt anything to run it.

    Assuming your boot drive is C, run the following command:

    CHKDSK C: /r

    Let chkdsk finish to correct the problems, he could find.

    It may take a long time for chkdsk complete or they seem to be "stuck".  Be patient.  If the HARD drive led blinks always, chkdsk is something.  Keep an eye on the amount of the percentage to be sure that it is still making progress.  It may even seem to go back sometime.

    You must run chkdsk/r again until it finds no error to correct.

    Remove the CD, and then type "exit" to exit the RC and restart the computer.

    You have not to set the BIOS to boot the disk HARD since the CD won't be.

  • Install Windows 8.1

    I have a HP ENVY 15 t-j100 Quad Edition CTO Notebook computer Touchsmart (ENERGY STAR)

    I messed up my hard drive with EaseUS Partition Master and it erased everything on my hard drive. I got it together to clone, but it has erased.

    My goal was to clone my old drive c: on a new hard drive. Both are SATA hard drive.

    Now, I have a laptop with no installed Windows 8.1.

    So I went to the Microsoft site and downloaded Windows 8.1 and would make a boot USB Flash drive and when I entered the Windows of my HP laptop key, dismissed. So I used a key purchased from BestBuy Windows 8 disc. Microsoft has accepted that the key and when I installed the new HARD drive on the laptop and insert the USB flash boot drive and started to install Windows 8, it rejected the key and said that my key does not match the key on my motherboard, the key that is embedded in the ORGANIC menu. So I could not install Windows 8.

    So, the next thing I thought was to clone my dekstop 8.1 Windows on my new drive hard, then when I boot in Windows 8.1 of the laptop that I would change my key to victory than my laptop key of embeded.

    I used EaseUS Todo to clone my C: drive to the new hard drive, and it was a successful and identical copy.

    Then I put the new clone drive in my laptop and it tells me to install an operating system.

    I checked the setting of my BIO and his game to boot from a hard drive.

    So I contacted EaseUS Todo and spoke with a technical support for more than 1 week now and they don't know why my laptop won't boot from the new drive of clone.

    I have no restore options I did the laptop.

    I contacted HP support and they tell me that they cannot help me to activate Windows this fall on Microsoft.

    I contacted Microsoft and they tell me that they cannot help me install Windows as it falls on HP.

    The problem is that I can't install Windows 8.1 car his rejecting my key Windows 8.1.  When I try to use a different key of Windows 8, it rejects too because he says that it is not the same thing as embeded in my Bio.

    I ended up installing Linux Mint 17 which is ok, but I'd rather have Windows 8 back on it.

    Is there anything else I can try to do?

    Hello

    Well, I said game/recovery media which means can be a set of DVD or USB key. Ask your USB key.

  • Bugcheck after format and re install Windows 7 BS Bluescreen

    Nice day

    I formatted my hard drive the other day (31/05/14), since my computer has been crashing with blue screens like crazy - at least two to three times a day. The system is a customized version of the year, and I've updated all my drivers and software. I did my best to try to understand why it keeps crashing, including repair of windows, memory diagnostics, disk hard scans, Mr Fix It, removing overclocks, etc, etc, but I failed. I can say with certainty that the event viewer reports the same codes of each hour. It's as follows:

    The computer was restarted after a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000007f (0 x 0x00000000000406f8, 0 x 0000000000000008, 0000000080050033, 0xfffff80002ec3d3d). A dump was saved in the: C:\Windows\MEMORY. DMP. Report ID: 060114-19749-01.

    The specifications of the system are:

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.
    http://www.NirSoft.NET/utils/DriverView.html

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as
    necessary.

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows

    You are right.

    So, my question is this...

    How do I install Windows 8 and use my old product key?

    You follow the manufacturer's instructions for use the recovery partition
    on your hard drive. But if you completely erased the hard disk drive, which
    partition disappeared, and you're out of luck. Contact the manufacturer.

    Hello, my name is Pedro, from Portugal and would like an opinion about an activation/install Windows 8

    No doubt im trying to use a version of windows bad for this key, so if anyone can point me to the right of an evil appreciate help.

When I insert the CD and I want to install the OS its asking for the product key. I would like to know how I can retrieve the product key? Because I know that the product key is built into the BIOS. I tried most product key on Internet finders and they all give me the product key for Pro 8.1.

    Thank you

    Hello

    You have a limited license timed on Pro 8.1?

    You will need to install Windows 8 clean (remove all) and it should pick up the key in
    installation.
