|I had a virus in my HD in this HP Pavilion ze4500 lap top so I had to change the HD one that is formatted NTFS. When I put the Win XP Pro CD in the CD drive I can see the light go on and flicker. the screen goes to the HP logo from there I can enter the BIOS setup utility and have in the boot section established the CD-ROM as the first boot option followed by Removable Devises (USB), then the Hard Drive and last Built in LAN.|
The Win XP CD is still in the CD Drive.
I exit and continue the boot process after the HP logo screen it immediately cuts to a line saying:
"Initializing MBA. Press Ctrl-Alt-B to configure."
If I do that I can enter the Argon PXE Boot agent v2.01 (BIOS integrated), nothing to change there. save and restarts proceeding to the following paragraphs that read:
"Argon PXE Boot Agent v2.01 (BIOS Integrated"
3 lines of copyright and legal stuff.
The next paragraph:
"Pre-boot eXecution Environment (PXE)"
After a couple of seconds a line
"PXE-E61 : Media test failure, check cable"
Then the screen shows a line that reads:
"Operating System not found"
How can I make it read the installation CD.
Does that mean that the CD ROM is damaged? and does not read. I can see the light flickering and can feel it starting to spin, but it cuts off and all dies with the line "Operating System not found" staring at me.
Is there another way to install Win XP on the hard disk?
All help and suggestions are welcomed.
