I have a Fujitsu c-500 Stylstic PC and it gives me a corrupt file message telling me to re-install windows. First off i need to know how to boot it into Safe mode and secondly... how to boot the pc off a USB drive to re-install the OS. These small issues are kinda hard to deal with becouse the PC does not use a key board becouse its a Pen Stylistic and does not have a CD or floppy drive. It only has a USB port.

Can't install XP


I am working on the basic same problem-TC1000 HP/Compaq.I found that you must have the docking station with the proprietary HP CD/DVD drive in it, you problem i think is that when it reboots, it loses the hook from the USB drive. goto ebay you can get a docking station sheap - make sure it has a cd/dvd drive in the station to make sure not to have anymore problems.Jay

We understand that your problem is: Hi please help me i dont know what to do i purchased a used compac tc1000 tablet pc on ebay for college and It had ubuntu installed on it and not windows xp it did come with the 3 windows recovery disk but when i put them in the portable usb cdrom drive it pulls it up in file browser and wont run it. I thought it was becuase of the ubuntu operating system they put on it so i tried deleteing it and when it boots up it still says ubuntu but when it boots and im on the home page there are no longer the top and bottom menu bars on there where you access the menu, applications, wifi, turnoff or restart options all thats gone!! I cant get the windows xp disk to run please help me i dont know what to do i just spent all this money on this thing for school and now i cant even use it. . Remember i do have the 3 original restore/recovery windows xp disks everytime i put it in the usb cdrom drive it takes me to file browser with the restore folder but it wont run the restore process


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.

Recovery Problems I need to perform a a recovery on this tablet laptop but the problem is the firewire cd/dvd drive doesn't work. I have two of thes Acer external firewire drives and neither works so it is probably the firewire port on the unit but the wires on these drives are notoriously flimsy. I tried doing a restore from the hidden partition drive that is on every Acer but the Alt F10 function does nothing. I even purchased a usb cd/dvd drive to try to boot the recovery CD from it but it won't recognize the drive. I was thinking I might try making a bootable usb thumbdrive from the recovery CD and then using the bios to boot from it. Running out of ideas though. The machine is still working pretty well it has ton's of corrupted installs on it and needs to be flushed. Can't find the handle though. :-)


The Tablets can be quite difficult to perform a reimage or recovery on as most bios versions on them do not recognise a USB device as bootable. My recommendation would be to obtain a Bootable Floppy disk that contains an imaging program. (GHOST. Powerquest etc). From here you may have 2 options available to you.1. Attempt to recover using the hidden partition on your hard drive.2. Recover from an image located via the network. You will need to ensure that a driver for your network card is also bundled into this install. Once this boothdisk has been created you will need to create a "shared folder" on another PC which contains the image you require. Once the bootdisk has loaded point yourself to the shared folder.Lastly - You may be able to find an updated bios version that allows boot from USB device.

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 .

A direct download from the manufactures website should update the drivers even after reinstalling the operating system so I would update the bios with the latest firmware and than try booting using the usb Hope this helpsRobb
