Thanks so much for the DMI utility which I downloaded and worked perfectly for my toshiba satelite 5000...I thought my laptop was stuffed..I originally had windows home and decided to try windows xp pro using a copied CD from a friend...later I formatted the hard drive and tried to use the original CD's and reinstall windows xp home but I kept getting the error message 'wrong machine'...you have saved me a lot of heartache...thanks so much..

Here's the real deal:

You do not need to download anything, instead do this:

1. insert your cd

2. boot system using cd (here is where you will get the WRONG MACHINE ERROR)

3. change to the drive letter of the cd... mine was q: yours may be something else

4. go to the 'base' folder by typing "cd base" and press enter

5. type "os.bat" and this will start the ghosting process

6. your system should now be ghosting your computer to factory settings

:unsure: :unsure: :unsure: :P :P

If you want to apply the utility, I suggest you back up your original DMI settings first using DMICFG's Save DMI function. So if something goes wrong, you will be able to restore it.

DMICFG.exe can only be run in DOS real-mode.

Tried this but i have a problem at the final step - my machine tries to install on the q: drive instead of the C: drive.

Any ideas?

I have lots of questions.

Are the DMI strings labels standard or do they change for each manufacturer?

Is there a setting to say the CD drive is bootable or tho change FSB and CPU speed settings?

Is there a book I can check out?

Thanks

Yes this does appear to work. I had to search through a few sites before I found this site.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 with XP and this is what I did:

1. Pop in the CD.

2. Press F12 immediately upon seeing the Toshiba logo.

3. Select the CD to boot to CD.

4. It will prompt you to continue or quit, press F1 to continue.

5. It will give you the "Wrong Machine" error.

6. Type Q: at the DOS prompt to change to the Q: drive (a RAM drive setup by batch file).

7. Type cd\base to change to the base directory.

8. Type os (or os.bat) and press Enter. This will start ghosting the image to the computer.

9. When it is done with disc 1 it will prompt for disc 2 and then disc 3.

10. When it is done, eject the disk and press the key it says to continue.

11. It should reboot into the setup for XP.
