1st Post say: Hello! :)

Ive got lil prob
Ive got laptop hp HDX18t series with Intel Core QX9300 and Sony Vaio old one.

I need to install WinXP sp3 into Vaio I dont have it near me so model I will write later. (its old) I tried by cd but cd-rom won't ready any discs.

Motherboard do not allow booting from usb so I tried with Network booting.
I want to install from hp cd-rom by RJ-45 cabel into my Old Vaio laptop. Is that possible?

Ive downloaded ubcd 5 newest version. Will I be able to install winXP in that way? Or what program should I use to resolve that.

Well if You know how those things going on and it will don't take much time for You I will be greatful!

i don't understand your question man
it is not related to ubcd support or troubleshooting

if your cd rom doesn't read any disc,
why do you try booting on ubcd?

and if your laptop boot on network
you need a dhcp server, then an image server (MICROSOFT RIS)
or a ghost server (assuming that you did a ghost backup of your vaio)

DID YOU TRY MANUFACTURER RESTORATION FROM CD OR HIDDEN PARTITION?
DID YOU TRY TO PLUG A USB CD/DVD PLAYER TO BOOT ON?

A SOLUTION WITH EXTRACTING DISK
you can buy an usb to sata/ide 2.5 3.5" adaptor
http://www.rueducommerce.fr/Accessoires ... SATA-2.htm

then extract your sony hdd to plug it on the adaptor
then boot on another pc with this system
make 2 partitions
1 system
2 data
create a folder d:\xp
copy all the content of xp cd into d:\data\xp

put your vaio hdd back
boot on a win98 floppy disc with smartdrv loaded


A SOLUTION WITHOUT EXTRACTING DISK
you create a dos floppy disk
where you load your nic driver
then access to a network drive

on the other pc - you share a xp folder where you copied all the content of xp cd

you boot on floppy
you copy to your vaio 2nd drive d:\data

ASSUMING THAT YOU KNOW DOS SHELL
