After when i reset HP Mini 110-3735dx the system no more found it( an operating system wasn t found)
NO OS STATED before the ***** of pc. W7 was new
is it w8, w8.1 or W10 (slammed )
F11 dead. got you.
that means (list)
the hdd is bad.
infected with virus (damaged F11 partitions recovery)
some one put a Microsoft disk (not HP)
and did a install not using HP media.
I call it slammed.
if I boot that PC and it run under say
knoppix 7 perfectly , then the PC is ok
if the disk test passes, then the HDD is ok
and only the partition (HP restore) is damaged or missing on said HDD.
is it missing,did you look ? we use that same linux disk to LOOK... to see
the knoppix disk tests are here. under bad hdd.
the order is this, flow)
1: is the PC ok? battery ok, coin cell ok?
2: test PC with Knoppix 7
is pc ok?
3: test PC HDD with Knoppix disk tests.
looking at SMART data first, is now out of spare clusters and lots of dead clusters growing,
yes, bad hDD, or even its dead, then we run the full hDD test using Knoppix boot stick,
4: ok hdd seems ok, i look at the Hp recover partition. using same knoppix.
is it missing, or obviously damaged or files missing?
then it was slammed.
5: we then install fresh what ever OS you want.
how to do that and choices are many.
best is the HP media kit , to make it like new.
other use other ways and take days to find all the missing pieces, (humpty-dumptied)
I can do that latter my self ,done so 1000s of times.
(I go to HP and see what is there and get all these files)
the PC came with W7, if your PC was not w7 now
that means you slammed the PC, with W10.
you have yet to say what OS you ran before it died.
if w7 great, if w10, ouch..
if you have damaged F11,
install w7 any why you can, (most ways fail)
a real MS disk from MS actual will work to a POINT.
the MS disk will miss many HP drivers. and all apps
so go to the above link and get them all
warning HP only SUPPORTS W7 on this PC> period.
