    Kama uko comfortable kuiondoa physically hiyo drive na kuiweka katika computer nyingine kama a secondary drive unaweza kufanya hivyo na ku back up ma file yako yote, kisha unaweza kuiformat ile original hard drive na ku reinstall upya.

    Hii ni kama unajua haya mambo ya kufungua computer na kutoa hard drive, pia utahitaji computer ya pili.

    Kama huko comfortable tuelezane ili tutafute option nyingine, unaweza kutafuta cd ya ubuntu, ku boot na ubuntu, halafu ucopy ma file yako kwenye usb drive.

    How to access the Recovery Console: - take this link for more informationThe Recovery Console is a set of tools which run from a Command prompt. If your system is formatted as NTFS then these tools can help you manage the partition. You can learn more about the Recovery Console through Help and Support or
    Click here for information about the different commands and their functions .

    To run the Recovery Console from CD boot with the Windows XP CD (or with the optional 6 floppy disk set) and select "R" at the Welcome Screen.
    [​IMG]

    The screen will switch to black and you will be asked which installation to log on to. If you only have one installation you will press "1". Remember that numlock is off at this time.
    [​IMG]
    Next you'll be prompted to enter your Admin password. By default it is created blank so just press Enter.
    [​IMG]
    At the C:\Windows command prompt type "Help" for a list of commands you can use.

    How to Repair the Boot Sector:
    If XP won't start it may be due to a damaged boot sector or a missing or corrupt ntldr or ntdetect.com files.

    To replace damaged ntldr and ntdetect.com you can copy fresh files from the XP CD using the COPY command. Boot with the XP CD and enter the Recovery Console (as above). At the Command Prompt type the following (where "X" is your CD-Rom drive letter) allowing the files to overwrite the old files
    COPY X:\i386\NTLDR C:
    COPY X:\i386\NTDETECT.COM C:

    To repair a damaged Boot Sector at the command prompt type FIXBOOT and press Enter. Then answer "Y"

    [/FONT] Use the above command (where /Q performs a quick format of the drive, drive is the drive letter of the partition to format /FS:file-system specifies the type of file system to use [FAT, FAT32, or NTFS]) to format the specified drive to the specified file system. For example the following quick formats C partition as NTFS
    FORMAT C: /Q /FS:NTFS
    the following will do a full format of C as FAT32
    FORMAT C: /FS:FAT32
    *** Note: If a file system is not specified, then the existing file system format is retained.

    Boot to Windows.

    How to Repair Install: ***Also removes Service Packs***
    Sometimes the only way to repair XP is to reinstall. You do not have to wipe your partition and start over. Just as with previous versions of Windows you can reinstall right over top of an existing setup. This has the advantage of retaining your installed applications, data and settings. You will lose previously saved System Restore Points but System Restore will begin creating new restore points again immediately following the Repair Install. You will need to reinstall SP2 and any Critical Updates from the Windows Update Site. Be aware that a Repair Install will leave your system vulnerable to the Blaster and Welchia worms. Do not go on line until you have enabled XP's firewall first. Then visit the Windows Update Site to patch your system It is always prudent to backup important data before you make changes to XP.
    There are two approaches. The first one should be used if you can still boot to your Windows Desktop. Simply pop the XP CD into the CD-Rom drive and select Install->Upgrade[recommended]. This will install XP overtop of itself in the same way as upgrading from a previous setup. However if your version is an OEM version then you will not have this option. If you do not see the option to Upgrade[recommended] DO NOT choose New Install as that will either overwrite your current setup completely or give you a dual boot setup. Also if you have an older version of XP and have upgraded to a new service pack you will get a message stating that a newer version of Windows was found and you will not be able to run the Upgrade. Create a Slipstream version to solve this problem
    If you cannot boot to the Desktop, or you have an OEM version of XP, or you want to remove a service pack then the following should be used to complete a Repair Install.
    Boot with the Windows XP CD and at the Setup Screen press the Enter Key
    [​IMG]

    You will be taken to the Windows XP Licensing Agreement. After reading the agreement press F8 to proceed.
    [​IMG]
    The next screen gives you the option to do a fresh (clean) install or to repair the selected Windows XP installation. To run a Repair Install Press "R" at this time.
    ***CAUTION*** if you do not see the option to repair the selected Windows XP installation DO NOT choose the option to continue installing a fresh copy without repairing as that will overwrite your data and cause unrecoverable data loss.
    [​IMG]
    Windows XP will copy the necessary files to your Hard Drive to begin the installation and will then reboot. You will see the message that informs you to "Press any key to boot the CD". Do not press any keys this time just wait a few seconds and the Windows Startup Screen will be displayed. Following this you will be greeted by the Windows XP Setup Screens.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    When Setup has completed you should find all of your previously installed apps and settings are intact.
    How To Determine If XP was Activated?
    You installed XP and then can't remember if you activated it. Go to Start->Run and enter the following
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial]oobe/msoobe /a[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial] View Product Key XP - [/FONT] Visit the Keyfinder Homepage by Aleks Ozolins [FONT=Verdana, Arial]
    [/FONT]
    If you have more than one system running XP you have obviously purchased more than one copy of the Operating System. However you may have forgotten which Product Key you used for which system. It happens. I have 5 systems and have had all of them running XP at times. XP does not store the Product Key in a recognizable format in the registry.
    Click this link and select "Open" and your Windows XP Product Key will be displayed
    Keyfinder
    is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key. has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping. It works on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, XP, Vista, .NET, Office 97, Office XP, Office 2003 and Office 2007. It even has the ability by using Microsoft's own script to change installation keys. See the Microsoft Knowledgebase article here Q328874
    If your version of XP came pre-installed on your computer the revealed Product Key could be that of an image used by the manufacturer. If this is the case you will likely be unable to use it to install another version of Windows XP such as one purchased separately from the computer.

    How to Repair Install: ***Also removes Service Packs***
    Sometimes the only way to repair XP is to reinstall. You do not have to wipe your partition and start over. Just as with previous versions of Windows you can reinstall right over top of an existing setup. This has the advantage of retaining your installed applications, data and settings. You will lose previously saved System Restore Points but System Restore will begin creating new restore points again immediately following the Repair Install. You will need to reinstall SP2 and any Critical Updates from the Windows Update Site. Be aware that a Repair Install will leave your system vulnerable to the Blaster and Welchia worms. Do not go on line until you have enabled XP's firewall first. Then visit the Windows Update Site to patch your system It is always prudent to backup important data before you make changes to XP.
    There are two approaches. The first one should be used if you can still boot to your Windows Desktop. Simply pop the XP CD into the CD-Rom drive and select Install->Upgrade[recommended]. This will install XP overtop of itself in the same way as upgrading from a previous setup. However if your version is an OEM version then you will not have this option. If you do not see the option to Upgrade[recommended] DO NOT choose New Install as that will either overwrite your current setup completely or give you a dual boot setup. Also if you have an older version of XP and have upgraded to a new service pack you will get a message stating that a newer version of Windows was found and you will not be able to run the Upgrade. Create a Slipstream version to solve this problem
    If you cannot boot to the Desktop, or you have an OEM version of XP, or you want to remove a service pack then the following should be used to complete a Repair Install.
    Boot with the Windows XP CD and at the Setup Screen press the Enter Key

    You will be taken to the Windows XP Licensing Agreement. After reading the agreement press F8 to proceed.

    The next screen gives you the option to do a fresh (clean) install or to repair the selected Windows XP installation. To run a Repair Install Press "R" at this time.
    ***CAUTION*** if you do not see the option to repair the selected Windows XP installation DO NOT choose the option to continue installing a fresh copy without repairing as that will overwrite your data and cause unrecoverable data loss.

    Windows XP will copy the necessary files to your Hard Drive to begin the installation and will then reboot. You will see the message that informs you to "Press any key to boot the CD". Do not press any keys this time just wait a few seconds and the Windows Startup Screen will be displayed. Following this you will be greeted by the Windows XP Setup Screens.

    When Setup has completed you should find all of your previously installed apps and settings are intact.
