How do I make 4 partition on a 40GB hard disc. What are the proceedings.


Boot up with the Windows XP installation CD
Follow the screen instructions -
Delete the existing Partition.
Create a new Partition (1st) but do not make it the maximum partition size - enter 1/4 of the maximum size.
Create another Partition (2nd) make this the same size as the 1st Create another Partition.(3rd) make this the same size as the 1st
Create another Partition (4th) make this the remaining max. size.
Format the Ist Partition Full NTSF (not quick format)
You can now proceed to install Windows on the 1st Partition.
After Windows XP has been installed and the computer's device drivers, go to Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Disk Management then allocate a drive letter to each of the Partitions then NTFS Format each of the Partitions.
Now each of the Partitions should indicated as Healthy.

My desktop computer is done and I need to get the information from the hard drive. It is a Samsung Spin point Sv0813h/TGM. I bought the IDE to USB kit. How do I make it all work?


It is really easy. If your using Windows 7, plug the IDE to USB connector to your Samsung Hard drive. Then using the provided USB cable, plug in the USB cable to the Hard drive. Then plug it into an available USB port on your other PC. Window will automatically install the needed drivers for you. Then navigate to Start/Computer/Local Disk E. Assuming there is no 2nd hard drive or partitions installed. And there will lye your Samsung Drive.

HELP.What Happened to 40 GB Space???


You may have to try to repartition the drive, you can do this while installing windows on the disk. If a partition table is corrupted it can make windows think there is more pr less space on a disk, Ive had tables corrupted so bad on dying drives they reported 999999999 gb on a 40 gb drive. you may want to look into getting a new hard drive as well if this is occurring.

Try formatting / partitioning the drive with windows xp setup / installation cd. If you are trying to format or delete partition in windows and its your c: drive you will not be able to do that.

Hard drive reported at zero bytes


see after teh utility named Partition Magic, It will solve these typoe of errors. Another cheap option is to try to format it with a vintage computes BIOS, HDD Formattion option, Not available in newer BIOS.
Tyr aldo Fdisk /mbr in the DOS PROMPT , booting with D.O.S. Ver. 6.0 Anyone remember this Operating system?
And the last option is to format the drive undel LINUX and thern get it back to Windows XP.

I delete all the partitions from my hard disk. i didn't make partition.when i restart the system,msg came that nofixed drive present.bios don't dectect my hard disc.my hard disc is maxtor d540x-4k. how can...


Assuming this was your only hard disk, there is nothing on the disk for the BIOS to boot from. You need to boot from the installation disk for your operating system. The OS installer will then let you create a partition and install to it.
