XP Home Reinstall Hangs On Dell Dimension 8300

My brother dropped off his Dell 8400 for me to take a look at last night. Furthermore, I even tried to copy the installation to hard drive and made it bootable, so now the installation is booting form HD, but still It keeps asking for cd/dvd drivers The Windows 7 installation media must be updated to support USB 3.0 and the UEFI BIOS settings must be adjusted appropriately see Converting your Dell Windows 7 Reinstallation DVD into a thank again… http:// Hello folks, I'm trying to install XP Home on 2nd hard drive to have a dual boot situation. http://midsolutions.org/xp-home/xp-home-is-a-cluttered-mess-reinstall.html

Thanks for the tip. I had 2 extremely tech literate friends involved and we never would have found this particular fix. I found you at the top of the list and tried this instead of drivers and it worked like a charm first attempt. He is available for application assessments and team mentoring engagements.

Furthermore, I even tried to copy the installation to hard drive and made it bootable, so now the installation is booting form HD, but still It keeps asking for cd/dvd drivers http:// As many here spent a good part of the morning trying to find a driver that works f6…f6…f6…f6 Iwas going bananas this solved the issue and now I feel stupid. All rights reserved.

The driver I got from the Dell Dr&Utils disk seems to copy during the install, but it still hangs in the same place. I don’t see any Toshiba specific drivers being loaded however (I don’t see this as any different from loading the SATA preinstallation drivers). ^Yeah, I know. Much appreciated. System Model – Inspiron 7347 BIOS version and date – A04 Also take a note of the: OS Name Windows 10 Home OS Version 10586 BIOS Mode UEFI SecureBoot State On

thanks. Thanks again!!! What was Dell Engineers thinking when they developed this product??? http:// Thank you so much!

George Thanks, you just saved me $129.00. This will give you an indication of how old your system is: In the case of the Inspiron 7347 (UEFI) BIOS revision A00 was released on the 04/08/2014 (UK date format) A Google search for “THNSN5512GPU7 Driver" takes me first to this Intel site so you can try loading the Intel driver also to see if it helps: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/23929/Intel-SSD-Data-Center-Family-for-NVMe-Drivers ^Got this driver Make sure the driver files are correct and located on the driver installation media.

I wish Dell Support was half as helpful as you have been. grrr http:// thanks for this 🙂 floppy goes in the trash now http:// You are a life saver! I was on the verge of giving up when I just popped the question on "the world wide web" and there it was, question and answer. thank you very much Reply philipyip says: 04/08/2015 at 21:32 Do not install Windows 8, install Windows 8.1 directly: http://dellwindowsreinstallationguide.com/download-microsoft-windows-and-office/download-microsoft-windows/download-windows-8-1-retail-and-oem-iso/ Reply philipyip says: 04/08/2015 at 21:55 Please make a new thread

very early in the setup ( just after the "Press any key to Boot from CD" Prompt.) Go back into BIOS and set SATA back to On and retry. this page I’ve tried your image (7 Professional SP2 x64 USB 3.0 June 2016), but it’s the same. Thank You!!! You’re magican!

brian This tip also works on error message 0x0000007b Britec - http://www.britec.org.uk Terry Thanks a ton man! Certainly saved me from more aggravation! When Windows installation ask me for extra drivers and I choose browse, I can see the hard drive nad usb drive no problem.

jusme Thanks a million.

Then Windows wouldn't boot. http:// Thank you very much. I saw the setting last night but assumed the default was correct, there was nothing about this in the users manual either. http:// same compliments as everyone else. 2 years ago, I reinstalled OS and had drivers (don't know where I got them).

http:// This worked a treat for my DELL 8400….. pls give me lists of drivers needed to proceed with windows7 installation. I've sought help on several different user forums and from several different techies, but absolutely nothing worked until your simple fix. useful reference Worked perfectly!

Michal Reply philipyip says: 23/07/2016 at 01:20 Glad my guide has helped in the past. I’ve tried your image (7 Professional SP2 x64 USB 3.0 June 2016), but it’s the same. Great advice! I basicly have all the drivers for this laptop downloaded form dell’s web site and extracted them into the same folder.

Dell goes out of their way to be a source of non-information. http:// I went as far as burning a custom XP install disk with the SATA drivers included, but then I was getting BAD_POOL_CALLER errors.
