In completion of Twisty's answer I would suggest that you simply "kill" your hard disk instead of replacing it by another one. This must be done from a boot CD. US-DOD is a good algorithm to erase all data from a hard disk. Hope you won't decrease my credits now. Anyway, good luck!

Promised, won't do it again! Download it from a trusted source: microsoft.com That is, if you can find it there...

To answer the question, "Is it possible to install an OS without any installation medium?" Then the answer is yes. There are a variety of methods, such as PXE booting and disk imaging. However, these require that other factors are in place. In your case, it sounds like none of this is set up and you are missing the installation media.

As long as your friend's installation disc is "Windows XP Home Edition" and either an OEM disc (says Dell, HP, IBM, etc. on it) or a System Builder disc (says "for distribution with a new PC only" on it), odds are it will work. It's rare (but not unheard of) for Windows XP-era discs to be BIOS-locked such that an HP/Compaq disc won't work with a Dell key. ...

When using windows explorer, if you have the status bar enabled and highlight Is this copy of Windows Legal? then you will see the following under the status bar: Displays instructions and information to determine if Microsoft software is genuine.

Yes, but make sure the code is correct, and if your code does not work, you have to call a number to get a new code. Wish you luck.

Without the installation CD or DVD, then no, you cannot install the operating system as you are missing something fundamentally necessary for the operating system to work, i.e. the entire operating system. Your only option is to get a hold of the installation disks necessary for your computer. If it is a branded computer then you could phone your ...

No this is not possible. Why? Because the operating system is made up of files. Without an installation medium, the files can't be transferred over to the computer's hard drive. The product key is simply a method of activation, it makes your copy of WinXP genuine, and that's it - no more, no less. What are my other options? Not many (legal, safe, ...

In Powershell this can be as simple as: $fonts = (New-Object -ComObject Shell.Application).Namespace(0x14) dir fonts/*.ttf | %{ $fonts.CopyHere($_.fullname) }

You have to use an OEM version to use an OEM key... I would suggest that you contact the OEM and tell them that you put a larger HD into your machine and you need to reinstall the OS... usually for $5 they will mail you an OEM install disk.

MSI or Windows Installer has built-in support for this - the extraction of files from an MSI file. This is called an administrative installation. It is basically intended as a way to create a network installation point from which the install can be run on many target computers. This ensures that the source files are always available for any repair ...

Rename the AMD drivers (atikmdag.sys and atikmpag.sys) in Windows\System32\Drivers. Now Windows should not start the AMD GPU.

Device configuration is stored in the registry file C:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM. However, I'm not aware of OS X having any way of editing a Windows registry file. If you want to edit the registry without using Windows, you could use something like Offline NT. You will find keys related to display driver configuration under ...

I think you ought to be able to install the freetype headers (and also the Python ones, which will be needed too) in the expected place using: sudo apt-get install libfreetype6-dev python-dev But, for reasons I don't understand, after this, I still got a 'missing python.h' error when pip installing matplotlib. It didn't work for me until I had done: sudo ...

Those are separate commands you need to enter separately: chmod a+x file_name.bin ./file_name.bin The first changes the permission on file_name.bin to make it executable, the second runs that program. Entering them as one command just causes the file permissions to be changed twice as both file_name.bin and ./file_name.bin would be used as arguments to ...

Set your bios to boot the Hard Drive first. Then when the computer is starting up start the BOOT MENU (Usually F10, F11 or F12). This will allow you to boot from the flash drive. I just had the same issue re-installing Windows MP 2012 on a Dell server. Windows 8.x looks at the BIOS Boot order to determine where to put the "boot loader" and it refuses to ...

I used Grub instead of syslinux by looking at the following guide http://browse-tutorials.com/tutorial/install-arch-linux-usb and now it worked fine. I also appended acpi=off noacpi noapic to all instances of ...vmlinumz... in the file /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Think of it this way; the people that make VLC create all the files that the program needs in order to operate, and define where the various files need to be for the program to find them. Included in this are the executable files (EXE files like vlc.exe) that are what you run to use VLC. They take all the files and combine them together in such a way that ...

I also bought an Asus X200MA-KX143D-blue netbook (or notebook or ultrabook, whatever) and had the same problem. I found this solution topic on the net. You need to update your BIOS.

This sounds to me like there was a windows installed on the HDD before and the computer boots from this mbr which is pointing to the old installation of the hdd, but instead it should boot from the ssd.

I had the same problem also. I had a few games for win7 and transferred therm to winxp and most games said decodepointerer error. It seems reinstalling a few games did the trick, but all other games still had the error. It seems installed service pack 1,2, or 3 onto XP will fix it, although you may then get a different .dll error. Just update your whole OS ...

Unetbootin can make your external drive bootable with certain ISOs without formatting the drive - it keeps all the data and adds the MBR to it, along with some unpacked folders and files from the ISO. But be careful, it has an option to format the drive, tick that checkbox before pressing next. If you want to install Ubuntu in a normal way, to separate the ...

Since this problem comes from that pip comes with python 3.4 installer, you can simply uncheck the pip install option in the installer and try to install pip manually later.

Try the following series of commands: $ sudo apt-get clean $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade $ sudo apt-get install wireshark

It appears that you have attempted installing Wireshark already, but something happened to the dependency packages during the install process. I suggest clearing the cache of dependency packages (therefore removing the broken packages), and attempting to reinstall it. I found a question on AskUbuntu that details how to do such a thing HERE. The command that ...

There is a third way. (you missed right clicking an inf file and clicking install) even a fourth way- using device manager or just plugging the device in, but letting it search..as opposed to pointing to a location.

When you install a driver through the device manager, you can only select .inf files. They are the core of a driver. Some hardware (usually printer drivers) require additional software to be installed. Installing the additional software is much easier (and userfriendly through a normal software install than an .inf installation. The problem with .inf is ...

Generally, I would install drivers from the internet ( either via a trusted site, usually from your manufacturer or windows update) rather than from a cd/dvd driver disk. Downloading from the internet ensures that you have the latest driver available for your device while the driver cd/dvd will only have the most recent version at the time of its creation. ...

So I fixed this by changing the SATA port that my hard drive was plugged into. There seem to be three groups of sata ports each ran by a different chip so I'm not sure if only one of those groups work without extra drivers or something like that. Any further explanation from someone more technically minded wouldn't go amiss.

This is not normal behavior. While installation can take some time, one hour is far too long. I would try killing the process and reinstalling per these instructions.

In my experience, Internet Explorer is difficult to uninstall but is relatively easy to roll back to previous versions.

F12 should open up the Development Console. Under Emulation you should see "User agent string". From here you can select the IE version to run under. Note: This did not work that great in IE10. I have not tested this in IE11. The problem was with how IE8 handled things like positioning in CSS and how the emulated IE8 handles them. There were minor ...

Assuming that you mean to say that both computers have 507MB (Non-standard size, are you sure? I'd have assumed 512MB but then when people were using MB for RAM I wasn't really that into computers) and also assuming that you mean that this memory is split into multiple card units, e.g. 2 256MB RAM cards per computers. Assuming that both of these assumptions ...
