Re: Recovery of PCI drivers in Windows

When you start your computer everytime getting some error:
"system32\ drivers\pci.sys " is missing and when you are going to repair it using Recovery console from boot disk receiving error:
"Setupdd.sys could not be loaded "

In this case your computer contains some hardware that are incompatible with Windows XP. To solve this error :

- Shut down your computer and then remove all the devices that are Internally connected with PCI devices.
- If system starts successfully then switch off your computer and reinstall all PCI device one by one and start window after each installation.
- If Windows is not starting yet then just remove one or more memory component of your system. Leave sufficient RAM space for windows to be start and try this process again.
If its not going successful ,you need to contact to your manufacturer and find out more information about hardware compatibility for windows XP .

Installation of Windows XP Using USB :

The component are listed here that would be used to create a boot-able USB
- A USB Flash Drive capacity with 1 or 2 GB
- A Windows XP Boot-able CD
- A PC with a CD Drive and a USB port
- and WinSetupFromUSB software

Execute the WinSetupFromUSB and follow the installation wizard

- Insert boot disk into CD-ROM drive and click browse and locate CD-ROM to copy the files from disk to USB.
- Make refresh and and select USB from left arrow and click Fixed
- After then click go to copy all the contents on USB and wait to complete copying process.
- Connect your USB and go into BIOS and set the BIOS to boot form USB save and exit
- You'll see two lines in the GRUB menu and select the USB key to install.
