Hi Par0x,

 

I got the PM but Im afraid its not something I know anything about, there is multiple results on this using search engines but the solution doesnt seem simple, Maybe other members can give you some detailed advise on this

Could you clearify your situation? I'm not sure what it is that you need.

 

You can get XP Floppy setup disks from MS's website if that's all that you're looking for. It takes 6 diskettes total, so have them ready.

 

I'm not sure exactly what you did. Hope that helps.

i think he installed windows on E: and he wants it on C:

its set to boot from C but not E.

can you boot up windows at all?

and to format, i think you can use the windows cd.

If he installed Windows on E, and wants it on C...then he needs to reinstall? Hey, you could also change the letters. You could make C...E, and E...C.

 

There are a few different things you could do in this situation actually.

 

 

In, my opinion you should fix your CD before doing anything.

you need to enter the bios.

try: F1, F2, F3, F4, Del., B, or Enter.

there could be more but those are the probable ones.

look on the screen when it first starts to boot up, it usually shows up what key to press.
