Remove Write Protection


You must disable the hard drive first to remove the write protection. So, right click on the external drive to disable it, connect the hard drive. Go to My Computer and find the hard drive, right click on the hard drive and de-select/remove the tick on the check box and change it to read only, then exit.

I want to install windows xp-2 in my laptop presario cq42 notebook, i have a proble with hard drive for sata disable. in this laptop the bios not show the sata disable feature. so i want to disable this...


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

You should not need to disable SATA as it is a way to interface with the hard drive. In the BIOS you can disable a hard drive to boot within the boot options.

Chkdsk runs sporadically and never stops


Sometimes it happens that disk check always starts to check the file system on one or more drives for consistency. If any key is pressed, the disk checking is aborted. Actually this is because some data structure of the drive or some file is corrupted which can not be recovered and check disk is always run at Windows startup. Or sometimes it may take several hours for disk checking to scan all the drives. So disabling it or postponing disk check is better. There are several methods to disable disk checking at Windows startup. Two of them are given below:

Method 1: Using CHKNTFS utility CHKNTFS is a utility that has been developed by Microsoft to disable disk checking on certain drives at Windows startup. To use this utility go to Start –> Run –> cmd.
If you want to disable check disk on C: drive, use the following command on command prompt.
chkntfs /X C:
If you want to disable check disk on two or more drives, just keep on adding the drives:
chkntfs /X C: D: E:
This will disable check disk on C, D and E drives.
If you want to restore what you have done, that is, enable automatic disk checking on all the drives again, just run the following command:
chkntfs /D
This will restore all the drives to automatic disk checkup.
Method 2: Using Registry To disable automatic disk checking at Windows startup through registry, go to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
In the right hand pane, double click BootExecute.
The default value of the key is autocheck autochk *
* means every drive is checked for consistency. Just add /K:C at the end before *. /K switch will disable autocheck on C: drive at Windows startup. So the final value should look like this:
autocheck autochk /k:C *
If you want to add more drives, the key should look like this: (disabling C and D drives)
autocheck autochk /k:C /k:D *
If you want to restore everything to default, just replace the key with the default one i.e.,
autocheck autochk *

Hope this will solve this issue.
Please rate your coments.. This will be helpfull to others.

Thanks & Regards
