Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo 600-Factory restore Help

  Giggle n' Bits 12:35 24 Dec 2003

My friend and I are trying to restore the WinXP Home o's by using the supplied Restore CD that came with the machine.

The instructions are to get into the Desktop and insert the CD, Auto play won't work and its not possible to open the menu's from the Start-programms etc due to file corruption or possble Hardware error.

So opening the Drive with the CD and double clicking on the Set up icon on the CD will start the restore process, you get the chance to choose US British settings then you have to reboot the machine.

The Reboot will not happen and then you get an error saying error programme error.

So the factory resore is useless.

Is there something or anything that can be done. If it a case of Formatting and buying a XP CD ?

Is that it or is there more to it than that?

I thought a recovery CD was used to boot, format and restore Windows either from the CD or a hidden partition and not repair it.

and it says this programme is now closing down. It closes down then says error and thats it.

The manual says insert CD while in Windows and let it auto run (which it didn't) so I manually got it to run by opening the setup.exe for XP within the CD.

I close the post as I have managed to install the windows fresh from booting with the CD but I now have another problem. Please see the new post
"Dual Boot"

Merry Christmas Jester2k & Big Elf ! and anyone else who reads this.
