Reverting back to FAT32

Q: Reverting back to FAT32

Hi All,

While installing windows XP I changed my file system to NTFS, but now I want to install windows 98 and do dual boot. How do I convert my hard drive back to FAT32?

Thanking you in advance.

Preferred Solution: Reverting back to FAT32

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Reverting back to FAT32

Sorry - too late. If you want to dual boot W98 anda XP you must always load the older OS first.

I downloaded the beta version of Microsoft Office Professional 2007 the other day and it seems to have upgraded my Office 2003 applications rather then installing 2007 seperately and leaving me the option of using either 2003 or the beta of 2007. The beta versions are very buggy from what I understand, so what happens if I want to go back to only having Office 2003. I don't have the actual 2003 software CD. The guy I bought the computer from never included it, so I hope that I don't have to go through and reinstall everything to get 2003 back the way it was before downloading Office 2007.

I made a big mistake by updating to XP SP2.
Is there a way to go back to SP1...
 

A:Reverting Back to SP1...

You can go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall SP2. I would then go to system restore and restore to a point before you installed SP2. There should be a point named SP2 install or something like this.

I uninstalled the IE9 update I had to have it automatically revert back to IE8. However, my Windows does not have IE8 in "Turn on Windows Features on or off" menu.

I'm using a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit upgrade from Windows Vista (the key can't be used with a 'normal' install disc).

A:Uninstalled IE9, not reverting back to IE8

Welcome to Seven Forums Joona. I take it you found IE9 on the list of installed updates? This should indicate you had IE8 originally, and it should indeed revert.

Try this:

Start> In search box type run> Enter> When run box opens type iexplore.exe> Enter

Does IE8 open? If not, you can try this Fix It to make sure IE9 was uninstalled correctly

Hi, I am trying to reset my laptop back to the original windows 7 it came with from Windows 10. I went on the Microsoft website and even though I have the product / license key they told me that as this came pre installed on my equipment I needed to contact the manufacturer. I have looked and looked on the HP website and I cannot find anything to help me and I do not see why I have to purchase another copy of Windows 7. My laptop doesn't even revert to factory setting as I have tried this several times and I am still stuck with Windows 10. The laptop is my standby as I have a new one but I can't get my old Lexmark printer to work in Windows 10 but it worked fine in Windows 7 so I want to have my older laptop reverted back to windows 7, my new one came with windows 10 as it's only 5 months old. Any help to get Windows 7 back on my laptop would be appreciated and I would have thought that HP would and should be able to help.

DMcD65 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!You said you "wiped" the laptop, so any Recovery information is long gone. Your only recourse at this point is to use something known as HP Recovery Media. HP Recovery Media is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks. You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number.

If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB.

Well I don't know if there's anything better than windows default or whatever, i just want to get rid of the modification I made because I can't seem to hit anything precisely on desktop, which is actually good to have acceleration.
It's killing me because I do a lot quickly and can't seem to hit buttons, icons, and all the precise small stuff that is needed in video editing, coding, web etc.
I found this guide about game mode The Truthful Mouse Guide

A:Reverting back to XP via windows.old.

Step 3 says that if you receive that message to move on to step 4 as follows:

Step 4: Copy the contents or move the contents of the Windows.old folder
Note When you type one or more of the commands at the command prompt in the following steps and press ENTER, you may receive the following message:
The system cannot find the file specified.
If you receive this message, go to the next step in this section, and then type the command in that next step.

Type the following commands at the command prompt:
Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
move /y c:\windows.old\windows c:\
Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
move /y "c:\windows.old\program files" c:\
Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
move /y c:\windows.old\users c:\
Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
move /y “c:\windows.old\documents and settings” c:\
And, it looks like if you get that same message again, you're supposed to move on to step 5. Its confusing for sure but it looks like you have to figure out exactly where the .old file is supposed to be and get it there if needed. Without seeing or knowing more that's my best guess.

It was originally using Windows 7 but with the present operating system it is almost unusably slow, with boot up 2 mins. 40 seconds and loading imaging software nearly three minutes ? there is only one program loaded at startup ? defender (msconfig). I have the Windows 7 original product serial number and an OEM copy of Windows 7 ? is it possible to revert without buying a new copy of Windows 7, it would then presumably be much quicker ? the lack of future fixes would be acceptable. Or maybe there is a way to make it go faster in Windows 10?

Hello,

Sorry to bother, could someone please help out?

My computer has gotten slowly all of a sudden during the last 2 weeks.

It takes several minutes when trying to open/rename/copy/move/deletes folders/files, and even longer when emptying the recycle bin. Same goes with opening some programs especially FireFox & Winamp.

I also keep getting this message "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience" It crashes every time I try to play certain videos, copying or moving files.

For the last couple years, I kept getting the message "Your system is low on virtual memory" My current memory is 256MB of RAM, I will buy another bar of RAM soon, still it's not an excuse for the sudden slowness, especially when I don't have powerful programs that requires the upgrade.

I have scanned with SpySweeper and Panda, both detected malware, unfortunately no fixing was done since both require payment to do so.

I scanned then with Ad-Aware, Spybot and AVG and fixed whatever they found.

I do have a log of Panda and screencap of SpySweeper, so if HJT log fails to be useful, I will provide the other 2 logs if requested.

I hope I provided enough information, and many thanks for taking the time to help out!

I upgraded to Windows 10 on July 30th from Win7.
Before I did I cloned my Win7 disk to another spare drive.
I periodically boot into that drive and after a few minutes it tries to Upgrade to Win10 and fails. I want it to stop doing that.
It probably fails because the upgrade files in the download folder are corrupt.

How do I stop Windows 7 from trying to upgrade to Windows 10?

I need to do this as i cant dual boot because Vista wont let me shrink my 286GB partition past 9GB.
 

A:Reverting back to Vista from Windows 7

Did you install Windows 7 in a dual boot setup or installed Windows 7 over Windows Vista?

You need to backup your files in C:\Users\<username> and and other settings to an external hard disk or CD/DVD. Then you can reformat the drive and reinstall Vista.

Usually settings can be transferred from an old OS to a new OS or from the same OS but not backwards from a new OS to an old OS due. In this case I would say no.

You can back up files such as documents, pictures, email, music and so on but not settings, they will have to be done from scratch

I am using SP2 for the first time. I went to a site to download fonts. The new SP2 controls added another press of a button prior to the actual download of every font I downloaded. So I clicked the remember settings for this file type option, then clicked SAVE. After that one downloaded, every other one skipped the save process, and went straight to OPEN. Had I opened the file I clicked remember...... I would have understood why. I went thru my internet options and changed a couple of things, even restored the default options. Nothing. Any ideas as to how I can get the files to save rather than to open?
Note: Right clicking every single time I download something is NOT an option. I already know how to do that. I want to know how to left click and THEN I have the option to open or save.

The touchpad settings for my X1 Yoga keeps reverting back to the previous setting, no matter how many times I change it and save it. Why is this happening?  The two changes I want to keep that keeps reverting back, are these: 1) Have the middle button behave as a middle-button (instead of for scrolling) 2) Have the scrolling direction on the touchpad act normally (no reverse direction).  I had changed those settings when I first got the X1 Yoga, but then soon I chanced it again to what I want it to be now, but ever since then, those settings just won't stay and keeps reverting back to the first change I made, and it's been weeks and weeks. No matter how many times I change them and save, they only last until I close the lid. The next time I open the lid, they've reverted back.

Hi all,
I upgraded; no, downgraded to Windows 10 - I guess you get what you pay for.

2 Days later I downgraded but with a clean install of my Win 8.1 Pro. In the updates it still installed the KB "important" update even though I hid it. After reboot the rotten icon was back again - that hamburger thing - so I uninstalled the KB 303 cannot remember the rest, but the icon is gone and no gmx.exe is on my system

Is there a way via regedit to stop it ever doing it again? I might upgrade when it no longer looks like a beta version and bugs are ironed out, but at the moment I loathe it with a vengeance.

Am I the only one who likes windows 8.1 and the metro screen? I find it useful across devices for the work I do.

Anyway, thanks in advance for any answers

I browsed the forums before deciding to ask my question and didn't find anything that fully addressed my problem.

My uncle installed Windows 7 onto my computer, creating a Windows.old file. It had Windows XP before, as the factory installed OS (no disc). I am now trying to revert back to Windows XP (why is not important). However, I am having some issues:

1) When I boot and select "Earlier Version of Windows" as the OS to start with, I am taken to a screen that requires I enter an admin password. The problem is that we do not have an admin password for Windows XP. As far as I know, one never existed. I was never prompted to enter one when starting the comp, and my husband is the one who set it up and he said he never had one.

2) When I attempt to do a factory settings restore through Windows 7 by pressing F8, I am asked to locate a system image. I don't know what that means really, except that it's a copy of the existing comp info and am not sure if the Windows.old folder is what I'm looking for. If so, that's another problem because it won't accept Windows.old.

3) I do not have any recovery points beyond, like, yesterday. Apparently my uncle set it so that older recovery points are deleted to make room for new ones. Awesome.

When I go back into the folder or the properties this setting instantly reverts back to "general items". The folder I do and any sub-folders as well. I don't understand why this isn't sticking!?!

A:Folder Customization keeps reverting back

try this
click organize then click folder and search options .
in the window that opens click the view tab and see if the topmost item on the list is checked.

you want it to be unchecked ,so it shows thumbnails not icons.

Hi there
I had to revert one of my laptops back to W7 -- need it for work. I'm still using W8 at home etc.

I did a CLEAN re- install of W7 Enterprise X-64 which INCLUDED SP1.

After the install it needed over 120 updates -- even BEFORE installing OFFICE 2010. This was a W7 install which INCLUDED SP1 so if you are reverting to an OLDER copy of W7 you'll need even more updates. !!!

Just warning people in case for one reason or another they revert back to W7 and choose to do a complete re-install -- process could take you longer than you think !!!!

Cheers
jimbo

A:Warning - reverting back to W7 might need a LOT of updates

Why don't you use something like Macrium Reflect FREE Edition to take an image, then renew the image after each set of updates.

I can's seem to be able to get the Vista Aero theme to stick. I downloaded this program that was supposed to change XP to look like Vista, but I already had Vista installed. I just wanted it for the "Object Dock" program. Anyways, when I uninstalled it, it made my computer look like a wnidows 2000 installation. When I go to themes, I am able to turn it back to Aero, but everytime I restart my Computer, it goes back to the win2000 theme. Please help me with this, I can't figure it out.

I'm using Windows XP SP2 and with the classic interface style. For some reason, though, Windows reverts back to the XP style whenever I reboot. I've checked my startup programs (both in startup menu and registry/RUN) but it's all clean there. What could be causing this problem?

One thing to note: only the style gets reverted on reboot, all the other interface appearance settings (font size, window color, desktop background, menu animation, etc.) remain intact.

TIA

I am working with Windows 7, and I am trying to revert back to IE7, I have tried reseting thru the tool menu and going to internet options and reseting, but that does not not work!

Tried reinstalling IE7 but error came up saying IE7 is not supported on this operating system.

Also tried turning off IE8 so it would revert back to IE7, but after restarting there is no internet browser available at all.

any suggestions!

thank you
 

A:troubleshooting reverting back to IE7 in windows 7

IE7 is not compatible with Win7. Windows 7 came with IE8, so you can't go backwards.

If you are having compatibility issues, you can click the little "broken page" next to the URL in the address bar and refresh the page, or you can download a different browser to see if it's an IE issue.

Of course you can also upgrade to IE9 as well.

My acer aspire v5-571-6471 went to update last night. It ran into a problem of some sort told me failure in update and is reverting back to its last functions. I went to bed and when I woke it was on a please wait screen. Been there for 9 hours. I tried alt+f10 to access the recovery partion as I can not get to my login screen. But alt+f10 does nothing. I do not have a windows 8 recovery dick laying around as I just bought the laptop from my sister who also has no recovery dick. Please help. If anyone is nice enough to make a recovery dick iso for usb and allow me to download it I would be grateful. I really don't have the money to go and buy anything at this current time.

A:failure in update and is reverting back

The proper word is disc for CD or DVD, not dick. You sound young.

Disc is marked as such on the face of the Optical drive tray.

You can get the Factory Restore discs for Windows 7 from Acer, I did for an Aspire I was given, cost less than $30US, haven't check price for Windows 8 yet.

Hi to all forum members. I have just now upgraded my Windows 7 Acer Aspire 5542G laptop to Windows 10. I do know that I can revert back to Windows 7 and then re-activate Windows 10 at a later date. My question is, if I do revert back to Windows 7 then do a factory reset on my laptop back to factory settings, would I still be able to re-activate to Windows 10 at a later date?
regards, Ron

Positively yes.

Once you have windows 10 installed and activated, you have the Digital Entitlement. That is good for the life of your computer.
Going back to Win 7 and factory reset makes no difference. (Provided you do not change motherboard.)
You are still entitled to re-install Windows 10 in the same computer any time you want and as often as you want.
There is no time restriction as to when you want to re-install.

A:WinXP Reverting back to Windows classic???

Unzip the following file to your desktop. Then double click on the .reg file and at the prompt, allow it to merge into the registry. That should restore the XP style theme.

Hi everyone-

After backing up my files from Vista, I
Installed Win 7 Ultimate six weeks ago.

Since then, I had to use "System Restore" about five times. The issue is that sometimes on booting, my HP desktop reverts back to "freshly installed version of Win7".

All my files , photos, bookmarks, etc are gone, so I have to use
system restore to a 'Windows Update' date.

This happened yesterday, even after booting Win 7 okay
at first, the numbers lock came on, I turned it off, and the computer reverted back to a new install of Win 7 again.

I had no problems as this with Vista.

Can anyone help me?

A:Windows 7 keeps reverting back to fresh install!

You can not do a fresh install of windows 7 unless you are using the disc,what do you mean by a fresh install,do you mean when system restore has complete all your files and settings have gone from what they were/?

I have windows xp home edition. Whenever I get online, my computer will not stay on the page I go to. It reverts back to the previous page that I was on. I have ran virus scans, malware scans, reset IE8, cleaned out cookies, registry, etc. Nothing has worked. I cannot use my computer like this because it will not stay on whatever I am doing. When I ran virus scan, it did detect some trojans. There is also this "image" that keeps coming up on my computer screen: it is about 2 inches in diameter, brown in color and cut into 8 pie sections. these sections all have an icon on them. I also did a highjack scan. I am pasting it in here:

Why is this and how do I get it to stop.

It takes at least 5 minutes just to open Word.

Please help.

When you upgrade from one office to a more newer one the process may remove some of the previous programing from office 2003 and it does not get put back unless you re-install office 2003.

Did you try to re-install office 2003?
