I have got a emachines m5122 notebook. I installed windows 7 on to the system and found out that my drivers where not supported.
I the decided to downgrade back to windows xp. To get there I downloaded the windows xp iso and used winrar to extract it. Then I put all the files on a USB drive as well as all my important documents. (I already own a licence key)
I rebooted my pc and selected safe mode with command prompt. When the cp loaded I typed the directory to WINNT32.EXE. I typed my licence code in and then it did it's job by preparing the files. once it prepared the files it rebooted and then tried to install windows. After a little moment it said FATAL ERROR. It continues by saying (AN ERROR AS BEEN ENCOUNTERED THAT PREVENTS SETUP FROM CONTINUING) then it says (ONE OF THE COMPONENTS THAT WINDOWS NEEDS TO CONTINUE SETUP COULD NOT BE INSTALLED) then has (ACCESS IS DENIED). I click ok then it gives me a list of files saying (INSTALLATION FAILED-ACCESS IS DENIED) I click close and the whole thing starts again.
There is no way for me to fix this I can't use a disk because my disk tray snapped and broke a while back. I can't get into the command prompt because it says (WINDOWS XP CAN'T LOAD SAFE MODE)
It looks bleak and looks like I cant do anything about it. If anybody knows any way of sorting this problem out please reply
Thank You and take care
