Cannot restore packard bell pc using master cd

  melvinm 20:23 09 Dec 2009

Recently i installed ubantu 9.10 parallel to my xp and later took it out. there is no problem with booting the system to xp now, but the problem is that i cannot reset my system to factory default. I dont have the recovery data in my hard drive. whenever i start the computer with the master CD inside, which of course is to reset, i get an error message as follows.

Error 10
Operating system >CDrom

Need help...please...!

do you have the red floppy disk?

.. on it are two importent files: exths.bin and tattoo.bin ->

Start your pc with the master-cd 1 (if you have from pb) when the error comes, press ESC to come to DOS backcopy the two files from the floppy to C:
re insert and run the master-cd
run following programms: q:\drivers\tattoo /importbin:c:\tattoo.bin q:\drivers\exths /importextbin:c:\exths.bin

when both programms tells you DONE....

Then restart your pc and boot from the master-cds.

Type in your serial number from the pb-notebook and it shuld now be done.

Sry, but i don't have such a floppy disk nor a floppy drive.

Try tapping F11 with the Recovery CD in the drive as its starting

F10 is for BIOS setup
