Give it a try and see what you come up with. Also, Microsoft announced in April 2008 that it will extend the use of a type of XP for Ultra Small PCs (these are tiny laptops that use an "Atom" processor).

This is normally just 1. What had I done wrong?

If you have more than one operating system installed, fixmbr and fix boot could mess up everything.” I disagree. Then I was able to see when the remote PC attempted to access the main PC to which the printer is connected. I left it for 20 minutes or more and no change. Can anyone suggest why and what I can do about it please?

Thank you to all. Also, turing of all firewalls should probably be only a last resort, for granting the appropriate trusts seems to immediately slve the problem.   Regards, Suntrhar Friday, June 15, 2007 7:15 internet explorer,paint,google earth) a black screen appears(screen of death) is what they call it i think.

I looked and the computer was rebooting, which was normal. If you have a Nodetype key change it as well. (the DhcpNodeType key overrides the NodeType) It is most likely set to 2. 1 = Broadcast (checks cache then local broadcast) My sister is the admin for her windows vista laptop, my father is the admin for his windows xp pro sp3 laptop and I'm also the admin for my windows vista It may be time to upgrade to Windows 10.

the workgroup name is the same on both boxes.  Your thoughts are appreciated. kenny says: 8 years ago uhh well i am using windows vista and i have encountered this problem.

Put in the CD and then restart your computer. Thanks for your reply and all your help. Near the bottom of the window, you should see the workgroup name which is probably "WORKGROUP" instead of "MSHOME". Please help me !!

And I'll have to put in my windows key to authenticate right? Anyone? rahul says: 8 years ago There is no OS to select in the vista repair option. I was searching for fixmbr.exe like crazy :) gilnic says: 6 years ago Hello, I downloaded ubuntu and I'm using a usb disc to try.

Any Help would be appreciated. Total identified windows installation: 0 the operation completed successfully. I'm now able to see my dad's PC from my desktop vista PC. Thanks a million!

If I leave the usb disk out, I get a message on booting up saying "verifying DMI pool data-a disk read error occurred. Now does each PC see each other? MBR stands for Master Boot Record and it’s the first sector of your hard drive that basically tells the BIOS where to look for the operating system on your computer.

Who came up with that sh*t?! If you have a small local network connected via a modem to the internet then you have a router. I am still getting the error in loading operating system even after running fixmbrand fixboot. Then, off to the black screen again.

The MBR has to know to look past that partition to the system one. I messed up with MBR using the command bootrec. It wasn't quick but it did work, eventually. Now something else I should have mention to you is how do each one of you connect?
