Reinstalling OS I think you can reinstall the OS from a partition on the hard drive. How can you start this process?

    I suspect you have XP but it helps if you tell us.
    What is the exact problem you are having? 
    Doing a destructive reinstallation you will lose any work of your own unless you have backed it up externally.

If you have this laptop to be honest if you are going to reinstall just go ahead and use a new copy of windows xp. Averatec carries no support for that laptop at all not even the bios. This laptop's drivers are all covered in vista, but if you use windows xp the drivers will all install but you get the generic brand video drivers. you are going to have to try both and see which one you like. vista will allow the computer to run normally just give the laptop an upgrade in ram to 1g and it should run great as a single core processor.

I need to reinstall win7 but i cant find my hard drive is there away to find it i know its there but i am limited options to finding and fixing this. Is there away to do this with cmd.?


Check the manufacturer manual or support site for specific key sequences during boot on your model to acces the hidden recovery partition. If the system partition in damaged you may be able to fix it during the repair/reinstall process, but if the restore partition has been damaged or erased, or if the whole hard drive is damaged, there is nothing to do besides replacing the hard drive and a retail OS installation

How to perform an eMachine Factory Restore


Back up all of your photos, documents, folders, files, favorites (bookmarks) and anything else you would like to keep and reinstall after the system recovery. Use a CD, DVD, flash drive, MP3 or external hard drive to store your data temporarily.
Click on the "System Recovery" icon (usually found within the start menu) and begin the process by following the on-screen prompts.
Click on "restore" and note the warnings about losing all of your data. Wait for the computer to complete the process of erasing the hard drive and creating a new partition.
Insert the emachines recovery disk in the CD tray when prompted. This will start the process. There are usually one or two disks involved and the computer will let you know which ones to insert when and will even eject the tray automatically in most cases. You may have to restart at least three times, do not be alarmed by this and keep the disk in until you are prompted otherwise. do-emachines-system-recovery--1.5-120x120.jpg
Example of Windows Installation Install Windows on the new partition and follow the prompts on your screen. Be sure to choose the largest partition, the one with the most kb available. There are usually two to choose from, as you have deleted the other ones in the steps prior.
Reinstall all of your backed up data and any software programs you are currently using, including the printer and Internet, if needed. Be sure all of your drivers and hardware is working properly, as they have been reinstalled as well during the recovery process.

Omputer turns on but wont boot


1. There is no hard drive or has a bad/failed hard drive
2. There is not OS (Operating System)
3. The Boot manager is corrupted
4. The Bios isn't configured correctly

That is all I can think of with your information.
What does the screen display during the process?
Does the computer make fan, or hard drive noise?
Was it working before?
If so what was the last thing you were doing?

Use the installation disk to reinstall the sofware. If a hidden partition is still present on the hard drive, you may be able to reinstall the OS from it. One of the function keys pressed just after booting will allow to reinstall the OS from the hidden partition. Read your computer's manual to find out which key initiates the restoration of the system.

I've just done a systems factory restore but ercovery stalls at process stage 11/12. I killed it by doing ctrl/alt/delete and ending the task in task manager. My computer works fine but it does this...


Please follow this step:
Format your system and reinstall the original operating system software that came with it. While you can install the latest version of OS X that you purchased from the App Store, technically this is a copy licensed to you, not the new owners. Reinstalling the original version of OS X will allow the new owners to choose what version they would like to install.

To reinstall the original version of OS X if your Mac came with a gray installation and restoration DVD, insert this into the optical drive and reboot with the C key held down. Then after selecting your language choose Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. In Disk Utility, select your internal hard drive (listed above any volume names contained on it), and you should see a "Partition" tab appear. In this tab, choose "1 Partition" from the drop-down menu, and then give the partition a name, set it to be "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)," and apply the changes.

If your system did not come with a gray restoration DVD, then you will need to use Internet Recovery to restore the original version of OS X. This will access Apple's servers and download the installation tools for the correct version that came with your system. To do this, ensure you have an appropriate internet connection for use with Internet Recovery, and then reboot with the Option-Command-R keys held to force loading to Internet Recovery. Again, use Disk Utility to fully partition the internal boot drive, and then quit Disk Utility.

Once the hard drive has been formatted, you can proceed with running the OS X installer, and wait for the content to download and be set up on the system.

After the installer completes, the system will restart and show the welcome screen of the OS X setup assistant, at which point you can hold the power button to shut off the system (when it is next turned on it will start at the assistant). It is now ready for the new owners to turn on and set up, as if the Mac arrived straight from the factory.

Hi all, I'm having a problem with my Lenovo G550 with one recovery key system. I tried to install Linux but i did it wrong and now I can't start Windows. When I put the recovery disc in to my laptop and...


hi if you are using windows vista/7 recovery disk to reinstall OS, then while choosing drive there must be advance option below it..choose it and then delete all the drives and then create new partitions from all the unallocated space..and then choose the drive from newly created partition to reinstall OS..

to backup all imp. data before doing so use UBUNTU LIVE CD..then do the clean install of vista/7

if the above trick doesnt work then download the GPARTED LIVE CD to repartition your HD..
use GPARTED live to boot.
choose the HDD
delete all the parition
create new partition (NTFS)
hit APPLY
shutdown GPARTED LIVE.
install windows vista/7 thorgh reinstall DVD.

I had new dell inspiron 1501 laptop with windows 7 os instaled in 350gb singel drive and i want to saparet two or more parteshens with out OS loss


if your hard disk is only 1 partition right now, reformatting the hard disk, then deleting the current partition and creating additional partitions is the way to do it. This means, you also have to reinstall Windows. if you do not want to reinstall Windows, look for programs like partition magic or the like that can allow you to create additional partitions, though, there are cases this may have issues later.

Dell media direct won't work


Hello,

Here is the steps,

1.Turn on your computer.

2.Insert the reinstallation media (Dell Media Direct CD/DVD) into the CD/DVD drive, then restart the computer.

3. press F12 when the bios page comes up and then select CD/DVD drive from the boot menu.

"Option 1" from the menu if you wish to use all of the hard drive for you operating system installation. This is the most common selection and how is your computer was originally shipped to you, unless you specified an operating system partition size at the time you ordered you computer.

"Option 2" to designate a size for your operating system and have a data partition. This allows you to specify a size for the operating system partittion, leaving the remainder, of the hard drive configured as a "data" partition ("D")

4. Once you have prepared the drive and you have returned to the main recovery menu, remove the installation media and replace it with you operating system reinstallation media. Select the option to reboot your computer. If your computer does not automatically start the media, press <F12> to access the boot menu and select the Cd/DVD boot option.

5.Install your operating system, select the Primary partition when prompted. If you have two hard drives, select the primary partition on the same disk where hte media direct partition resides. Once the OS is installed and the necessary drivers are installed you can begin the reinstallation of the dell mediaDirect software.

Good Luck,
Austin
