Make first boot device as your CD ROM by entering in to the BIOS -- > Boot Device Priority. To enter into BIOS either try F2, DEL, F10. then after insert the CD in to the drive and then you can notice this on a black screen " Press any key to boot from the CD" then press Enter or any key and then follow the instructions as suggested on the Setup of Windows XP . Now you can format your laptop.

Be patient. With the XP cd in the drive, reboot your machine. IF there is no operating system on your hard disk, it will try to read the CD and you can follow directions from there.

It is possible you'll need to tell the BIOS to boot from CD first. Press F10, find your Boot Order settings, and choose the CD drive.

Hi,

maybe the cd is waiting for "any key to be pressed" but the screen is displaying a picture like it sometimes does? Try hitting the keyboard after you reboot.
If it will not boot, see if bios is set up for booting from cd first. Then it should work.

Mother board masi km4am-l H.D.D. 1 TRA WES 64MB when installing win xp hard not detected by win setup. I updated bios but not worked. advance thanks


you should not update the bios...the issue is the hard disk is on sata ...and you need a raid driver installed to detect the hdd...so ...either get into BIOS and under advanced features..look the place where the drives are detected..and select the hdd and look for a feature called AHCI ..and disable it ..and leave sata like ide..and save with f10 and restart ...after that the hdd will be seen ..
another way is to make a floppy disk with the raid driver on it (the one from the mothermoard drivers disk ) ..and when it ask you to press f6 for 3rd party software ...press it ..and insert the floppy ...it will pick up the raid driver and will go like a charm ..
if you do not have a floppy ..install a second cd drive ..and use a cd ..and after pressing f6 for 3rd party ..browse and point to the raid driver on the mobo driver cd ..

Cannot boot from cd and run setup


When booting, the writing on the black screen should give you a couple of options akin to

Press F2 to edit boot options or
Press "Del" to enter setup. (bios)

You can use either, but you need to set your CD/DVD disk drive as the first boot option.

Just bought a laptop cheap as on trade me for extra battery was told that it was broken but fired it up and works but is asking me for a user name and password to log on to windows. can i over ride it or...


keep the laptop, hope it got a working cd-rom/dvd-drive !(if not, take-out /replace the harddisk)
-win xp has to be removed from harddisk,
the hd must be formatted so you got a blank hd to set up your new system

you'll need :
- antoher PC with internet connection and cd/dvd-burner
- a win98 installation cd or bootable savecopy of it,
- a new win-xp install cd plus cd-key
- a program called PC Wizard(download)
and a bit of time...(one night or two:-)

follow instructions:

if you can enter bios (press F1 or F2 or Del)
during booting), youre lucky...

enter bios while booting, in the menu look for boot otions or devices, change order of boot devices, so that cd/dvd-drive is 1st, then save and exit (F10)
insert win98-CD, boot from cd, try to setup win98, you'll be asked to erase/ format all data/installations/partitions
on the harddisk (drive c:,probably), do so, format the drive using the FAT32-file system,
then end installation without fully setting up win 98.
now you should have a blank disk witout any operation system on it.

now put in win xp cd, go through the whole installation process
install and run pc wizard(it'll tell you all hardware devices of the laptop)
get the proper drivers for the notebook for win-xp from the net(google might be helpful)
install them.
happy computing!

if all this did not work, remove the harddisk,(you'll have to unscrew a lot of the laptop)
replace it by a new s-ata ide-drive()and..
erh.. come again then, this is a long process as well

How do i boot up a compaq presario off of win xp cd?


First insert your cd in the cd/dvd drive and then simply restart the computer and it will boot automatically. If it does not boot automatically then go to boot menu and select cd/dvd to the first in the booting order. It will then boot automatically.
