I have a Fujitsu Lifebook P-2040 that I just reformatted. I'm going to install Windows 2K Professional (don't have the restore disks for XP Home). After I reformatted and restarted, nothing happens.

Got any idea(s) on what's going on? JJJ

Reading here it sounds like I can try that F8 trick above to restore?


I am not sure what you mean by the F8 Trick. If you mean hitting F8 (or F5) at boot up time, that will get you to a boot menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode with network, without network, and a few other options, then yes, that is the t ... E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
