Hi First you need to make the USB CD-rom Drive as the first boot device by going to BIOS setup by tapping F2 when the system turns ON , after changing the boot order insert the first disc and restart the computer it should run from the disc.

I'm trying to reinstall XP on my sisters viewsonic V1250s and I cant get it to load. I have the recovery cd's and an external cd drive. Her roomate put linux on it and jacked it up. I put in a new HDD and when I try to load XP from the recovery disks i get a blue screen of death telling me to check the disk or that it has a virus when I try using an external cd drive to load it. I tried loading dos 7.1 and then copying the I386 folder but cant get windows to load that way either. Why this didnt have an internal cd drive built in is beyond me. And why send recovery CD's if they wont load on it? I really need help getting this back up. I need to know how to load the recovery cds on this, and how to get the laptop to boot from the CD. Many thanks for any help


Hello, first of all, the XP media has to be "bootable". Now, you will have to format the hdd so that the Linux partition can be deleted. When this is completed, recreate the partition, generally XP will do this for you, try booting with the restore cd's again and it should work, start the install....cheers

Installing windows without DVD


The hard disk is not recognized from USB because of SATA drivers not present on XP setup disk.That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk. Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS. On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings. On other makes the procedure can be slightly different. Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see: Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .

My pc cdrom/dvd drive failed to read my recovery cd


Are you attempting to boot from a bootable disc? A failed drive can cause the other on the bus not to work. Try each one separate set as master or cs (cable select).
