Satellite A100 - how to install "Windows XP MCE" on a new HARD drive?

I have a laptop Satellite A100-495. the cd/dvd does not work and I have a new hard drive. Now, I want to install the original os (windows xp professional, mce).
I'm trying to put the files of my original restore on a USB cd but never works and I did not find useful clues in any part of the forum.

Is there anyone out there who can help me?


Hi, marawe

It would never work if you just copy the files from recovery Cd on a usb key. You need to make a BOOTABLE FLASH DISK, to do you need an application like Flashbot... Google.
Download and install it, after that you can make a bootable usb key.
You should know that your Bios must support boot with a Usb key, I don't know about your knees. Otherwise, you cannot do so. Hope it works

Welcome them

  • Install Windows 7 upgrade on the new hard drive?

    I have the Windows 7 upgrade version that I installed last September, but a few days ago my hard drive died.  How do we install the version 7 upgrade on the new hard drive without using a previous version of windows on it?

    In order to install the Windows 7 upgrade version, you must have a system of eligible operating Windows installed and activated.  You cannot install a version upgrade of Windows 7 on a drive blank.  The installation procedure you do not insert a Windows disk in the drive for verification, eligible operating system must be installed.

    If you do not have a qualification system of operating Windows installed with an activated genuine license, then you can not use the version upgrade of Windows 7 - you would need a license of Windows 7 "full version".

    In summary:

    1. a Windows operating system to eligible address must be installed.
    2. the Windows operating system to eligible address must have a genuine license (product key) and it must be enabled.
    3. to upgrade, boot on the eligible Windows desktop, insert the Windows 7 upgrade disc in the DVD player.
    4. when the menu appears, select custom (advanced option) to a clean install procedure.

    You should be able to repair the installation, if your installation one fall. I suggest create you a System Image (backup) of your installation of Windows 7 after installation of Windows 7 in order to spare you the trouble if your computer one fall in the future.

  • How to install windows 7 on a laptop after hard drive crash?

    I have a G60-235DX laptop where the hard drive is going bad.  It came with Windows Vista installed and then has been upgraded via the program from windows 7 to windows 7.  The hard drive is bad and now only works when it feels like it.  I have a replacement hard drive on the road and want to be able to reinstall windows 7 without having to pay anything.  Is it possible to do?  I don't like on the files on the computer, only the operating system.  Can I do something?  Thanks in advance!

    Yes, the disc is a disc 'upgrade', but you should not need to upgrade to Vista. According to "SUPERSITE of Thurrott", you should be able to install multimedia upgrade without a previous installation and activate it. The key seems to penetrate the Windows product key, that the installation is completed, instead of first application. Please try this and let us know how it goes.

    If your computer comes with a qualifying previous license such as Windows Vista or Windows XP and the certificate of authenticity is still attached to the machine in good condition, then the COST is reason enough to represent the compliance to the software license agreement. No previous required software installation, which means you can do a clean install with Windows 7 Upgrade disk.

    How to do a clean install with upgrade disc:

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD

    Click Install now

    Accept the license agreement

    When the option is displayed to select a type of installation, click (Custom advanced)

    Click on drive Options

    However, the requirements for the media upgrade is that you have an operating system already eligible such as Windows XP or Vista installed to use it. Since the Windows 7 end user license agreement.

    15 UPDATES. To use upgrade software, you must first be licensed for the software that is eligible for the upgrade. After the upgrade, this agreement takes the place of the agreement for the software that you upgraded. After upgrade, you can no longer use the software that you upgraded.

    So, if you are always denied, you will just have to reinstall Windows XP or Vista and let it do the verification of eligibility.

  • Local tech installed Windows Vista Home Premium after a hard drive failure. However, my key is Windows Basic. Is the copy, he put on my system illegal?

    Genuine Windows clean install


    I had a problem with my laptop Acer Extensa 5230th. It was not started and so I took for Matech computers.  They diagnosed as having a mechanical drive problem.  So they replaced the drive and installed a more recent version of windows vista on.  Note: I haven't bought a new copy of vista family premium, he said he was going to reinstall vista.  It had windows Vista Home Basic, it has installed vista Home premium and said that he had validated by call from windows, but I'm suspicious because I don't think you can use a base of windows key to validate Home premium!  It means that he has put on an illegal version on windows or used the genuine key that came with the laptop.

    In addition, on computers of brands, if this happens again, how is a technician for legally to reinstall the original windows that it came with the new hard drive? How to install windows vista basic on the new hard drive by using the original key to make it genuine? What windows installation disc would you require? or is it easier to just buy a new copy of windows?  I heard that many technicians, prefer to install illegal versions of cracking of windows instead of the customer to buy the new installation of windows.
    Kind regards

  • Satellite C660 - how to install Windows on the new drive?

    I have an old C660 of 14 months (2 months warranty!) and the HARD drive died quite suddenly.

    * 3 days works great
    * 2 days, got stuck at the "starting Windows".
    * Tried to fix with a System Repair (DVD) boot disk, but could not solve the problem (ran all night)
    * Start of DVD today and now the prompt of commands, each command "dir" on c: takes 20 seconds and try to copy files gives IO error.

    I'm going to buy a new HARD drive and install, but is there a way to get Windows 7 on the drive?
    There is no Windows disk supplied with the notebook... THERE is a recovery partition, but it died too.

    I don't want to buy a new copy of Windows when I already have a license.

    (I never have a backup complete incl. system, like the one and the only time that I tried to do that it was unable to complete the process, killing of many Virgin DVD-R in the process).
    I have most of my personal files backed up.

    Thank you

    The situation is quite clear. You don t have created the recovery disk and you have only two options now:
    (1) you can order the original Toshiba Recovery disk and install the original recovery image
    (2) you can get the original installation disc from Microsoft and install own OS

    In the first case, check it please

    If you take the decision to use option 2 Please note that your product key is useless and you have to pay for the new activation of license and the code. The sticker product key Microsoft belongs to the recovery image only.

    If you have any other questions you are welcome.

  • Satellite P750 PSAY1A: how to create the recovery Toshiba on the new HARD drive partition


    I have an old Toshiba Satellite P750 (PSAY1A-01Y022). I just upgraded my memory from 4 GB to 8 GB and am preparing to take my 500 GB HARD drive 1 TB. I had to order the disk online and wait to happen.

    I always try to understand how to create the arrival of my new HARD drive Toshiba Recovery Partition. I do the same thing for an old book, I handled based on something similar to it's original factory State.

    I have reflected on the recovery partition, but does not know how it was created. It is not NTFS. Does anyone have experience in the creation of a Toshiba Recovery on a new HARD drive Partition?

    And the help is very appreciated.

    Thanks and regards,

    Recovery partition can be created when you use the original Toshiba Recovery disk and install recovery image. Before the partitions to boot OS install will be automatically created, recovery image copied on a recovery and then partition as last step recovery image installation starts.

    A sort of migration of files from one to the other HARD disk is not solution.

    Only for laptop with factory will work and the usable recovery partition.

    Hi aqm0207,

    How you try to install Windows XP Home Edition?

    You may receive an error message "Stop 0x0000007B" in the following scenarios:

    (a) a device driver that your computer boot controller needs is not configured to start during the startup process.

    (b) a device driver that needs your computer startup controller is damaged.

    (c) It can also occur if the hard drive in the BIOS configuration is bad.

    You can check if the SATA hard drive is correctly configured in the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) & can also update the BIOS. If you are not comfortable to do, you can contact the manufacturer of your computer for help.

    Note: Changing the BIOS / chipset can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/chipset can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

    You can also check this link:Advanced troubleshooting of errors "Stop 0x0000007B" in Windows XP

    Hope the helps of information. Please post back and we do know.
