Dell Blues

  1. I have a Dell Dimension 3100 that I received from a company that folded as part of my severance. I did not get a restore disk and the drive has been formatted so the utility partition is gone. I am trying to install windows xp on a seagate 160gb sata hdd. I go through the dell screen and setup to boot to the cd and it starts to install, but when it is time for the reboot and just keeps coming back to the dell screen. Can anyone please help me. Thanks freebird

    John here, a support analyst at Dell headquarters.

    If you contact me through my team mailbox, and provide me with your service tag and a mailing address, I'll see what I can do about getting you any disks we still have in stock for your system. You can reach me here:

    I can't promise we'll have it all, but I'll provide you with whatever I can.
