  • Right-click the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then click "Properties".
  • Click the "Security" tab, and then click "OK" on the Security message (if one appears).
  • Click "Advanced", and then click the "Owner" tab.
  • In the Name list, click your user name, or click Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the Administrators group. If you want to take ownership of the contents of that folder, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.
  • Click "OK", and then click "Yes" when you receive the following message:
    All permissions will be replaced if you press Yes.
    Note folder name is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of.
  • Click "OK", and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and its contents.

It's fixed and everything works now. Thank you so much.


I also have a Compaq laptop that resets at the windows screen. Can I do the same steps you mentioned below? Do I need to make a new post?

Start a new topic for that one...we may be able to get it running a different way.

On the machine we just installed on, right click on My Computer and choose "Properties". Under the "Advanced" tab, in the "Startup and Recovery" section, click on the "Settings" tab. In the window that opens, click on the "Edit" button...a notepad window will open (boot.ini). Copy the contents of that window and paste it here for me.

Remove the line of text shown in red below. Then click "File" on the toolbar and click "Save". Close all open Windows and reboot...the machine should boot right to the new installation without the prompt at startup.

===================

Right click on My Computer and choose "Properties". Click the "Hardware" tab, then the "Device Manager" button. In Device Manager, do any of the listed devices have a yellow ! or ? displayed next to them?

Ok...choose one of the devices with an icon displayed next to it. Right click on it and choose "Update Drivers".

When the Hardware Wizard opens, it will ask if you want to go on the internet to look for it....select "No. not this time" and click "Next". In the next window, select "Install from a list or specific location" and click "Next". In the next window, select the checkbox next to "Include this location in the search", then use the browse button to navigate to and select the old Windows folder (C:Windows)...click "Next", let it search for the driver, and install it.

Do this for each device with a yellow icon next to it.

The Dell drivers won't work on your HP.

Navigate to C:Windows\System32\Drivers

My mistake...sorry

Go Here...scroll down the page to Original Drivers and download the Chipset Driver Collection, the Graphic Driver Collection, and the Audio Driver Collection.

Install the chipset drivers first and reboot. Then the Graphics drivers and reboot. Then the Audio drivers and reboot.

Check Device Manager after doing this...there should be no yellow icons if everything installed correctly.
