Yes, you can use this disk to install Windows XP, if the manufacturer of the computer is the same.

  • Is it possible to install Windows 7 on Satellite Pro 6100

    Is it possible to install windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite pro 6100 computer? I am currently using windows XP.

    Thank you.

    Hey Buddy,

    Do you really think on installing Windows 7 over several years old Satellite Pro 6100?

    In my opinion, it won't work because it is too old and not fast enough. Newer operating system that is supported by Toshiba is Windows XP and this should be the best choice for good old classic.

    So just to be satisfied with Windows XP, it's a good choice for older computers! :)

    Is it possible to install windows 7 on a PTA50E A5 and if so where can I find drivers, I looked on the support sites, but the filters can't find the model.

    See you soon

    Hello

    Yes, it is possible to install Win 7 on this laptop.
    If drivers Win 7 are not released on the European driver Toshiba page, then you will need to collect the drivers of your own hands.

  • Satellite L650-14F - it is possible to install Windows XP

    Hello and sorry for my language.

    It is possible to install Windows XP on this laptop?
    I have the Satellite L650-14F and I want to install XP 64. but the problem is, with the drivers. are they compatible?

    Help, please
    Thank you

    Yes, you can install Win xp on this laptop, but you will need to use the drivers for Win XP 64-bit.

    European driver Toshiba page provides accurate drivers for 32it version, so you have to collect drivers 64-bit with your own hands...

    But to be honest; I do not recommend using Win XP 64 bit... either you choose 32 bit or Win 7 64 bit.

    Win XP 64 bit was not so popular as the 32-bit version and most of the applications and the software is compatible with the 32-bit version.

  • Is it possible to install Windows 7 on a Dell Dimension 5150?

    My computer is several years old and came with Windows XP. Is it possible to install Windows 7? What happens to all my files, etc, if I did?

    Thank you.

    You will need to run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. It will inform you whether or not you can run Windows 7.

    In regards to your personal files, they must be saved on a device external or other removable media. This is because you can not 'upgrade' itself from Xp to Windows 7. It requires a clean install which means that all data on the hard disk is deleted during the installation of 7...

    Installation of Windows Xp from a usb key involves a lot more than simply copy the files from one windows on a USB disk. It is much more difficult than don't imagine most (but not impossible). I did it a few times. Read the instructions on the two links below. The first link below is your best bet. You are not likely to do things immediately. It's ok, we are here...

  • It is possible to install windows XP in Windows 8 Pro

    It is possible to install Windows XP in Windows 8 Pro to work together. If so, how?

    You would have a better chance, installation of Windows 7. Many modern systems that are preinstalled with Windows 8 do not support Windows XP. Its too old. There is probably no support driver is (you can always try your luck and see your computer manufacturer web site).

    If you upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 8, your system would be of course compatible Windows XP. In this case, you will need to redo the installation by installing Windows XP first, then Windows 8 after.

    No you can't. Given that it's a Dell and it came with Windows XP pre-installed, it's an OEM of Windows version.  The biggest drawback of an OEM version (at least in the USA) is that its license it permanently binds to the computer first it is installed on. He can never legally be moved to another computer, sold, or given to outside (except with the original computer). If the computer dies or is stolen, your license dies with him.

    And let me ask you as if you checked to make sure everything on the Dell is compatible with Windows 7, and there are Windows 7 drivers for all your hardware that requires it.

  • Cannot install Windows device recovery tool in Windows 7

    I can't install the NOKIA SOFTWARE recovery tool v 6.0.3 in my laptop that is running Windows 7, 64-bit.  I get error 0 x 80070002 system cannot find the specified file.  I have rights full administrator on my laptop, and I've already scanned my laptop for malware and viruses (clean).

    Hi Nagendra,

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    You can refer to the link below and check the details of the error message.

    https://support.Microsoft.com/en-us/KB/201318

    Are you using Windows phone Device Recovery Tool?

    What application or antivirus security suite is installed and your current subscription?  What anti-spyware (other than Defender) applications?  What third-party firewall (if applicable)?

    I suggest you to disable the third-party antivirus and check if it helps.

    WARNING:

    Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    This error could be the side server. I suggest you try to install it after awhile.
     
    If the problem persists, you can try the mentioned method and check if it helps.
     

    You can try to perform the check disk error on your computer using the chkdsk.exe tool command line and check if that helps.

    CHKDSK (Chkdsk.exe) is a command-line tool that checks volumes for problems. The tool tries to repair any that it finds.
    Important: While performing hard disk drive error checking, if bad sectors can be found, the available data on this sector may be lost when tried to repair.

    1. click on start, run, type cmd and then click OK. A command prompt window opens.
    2. type chkdsk /f /r and press ENTER.
    You are prompted to schedule Chkdsk to run when the computer restarts.
    3. tap on it and then press ENTER.
    4 restart your computer. At startup, Windows will scan your disk for errors, and Windows will try to recover any files that are located on areas damaged the disk.

  • I was offered an upgrade of windows 10 on my laptop that is running windows 7, but my wifi button was not working when I installed 10 windows so I started 7 what can I do?

    Hello

    I was offered an upgrade of windows 10 on my laptop that is running windows 7, but my wifi button was not working when I installed 10 windows so I started 7 what can I do? It is an Acer Aspire 5920 G (old enough)

    Thank you.

    There could be a problem with the wifi driver that comes with Windows 10. I think that you first need to find the right driver for Windows 10 on the Acer site. Otherwise, you may need to install a usb wireless card.

    Thanks for reading.

    Windows 8 - Refresh PC pre-installed Windows key recovery or installation DVD disc

    The problem is that the number of keys for Windows 8 is required for this operation, and I can't get it. I got Windows8 pre-installed when I bought the laptop, so I don't have the installation DVD, I did not collect the number of keys in any documentation or found on the laptop.

    What can I do to make sure that if I can restore Windows 8 and all my data on the laptop?

    Thanks for your help

    To put it bluntly, YOU n 'T NEED a KEY! When you reinstall Windows 8, it is automatically activated from your key incorporated in the Bios. There is no need for to go you into the Bios to get the key. With Windows 8, it is how it is done. Hope this helps and if you need another post to help and we will be happy to help you.
