I just got my Eee box 1501P without OS. The Win 7 Home will not install unless I format the disk to NTFS. Apparently Win 7 doesn't do it by itself. Further I have two partitions 300GB and 20GB. Any...


The hard drive will be formatted by Win7 and should complete the instal on its own basically. I would install the OS on the 20Gb partition as that will separate your data and extra programmes but it doesn't matter. Win7 will put a crash partition on the disk automatically, usually a few Megs in size and in machine code because it is quicker and more efficient for the processor to utilize.
The drive has to be NTFS to handle file name and extensions. It will work in other formats but NTFS is easier to use.
Hope this helps.

I have an old Presario 700 Compaq and want to format the hard drive and reinstall the windows software. I have the disks can you help


Simple. You didn't say what your OS was or if you wanted FAT or NTFS. Anyway, if you can get to DOS, type FORMAT C: and answer Y. This will do it but you will have to have some sort of a boot disk to enable your CD drive afterwards. If you don't have a boot disk of some sort, create one before you start your reformat job. If you want NTFS, check your FORMAT command BEFORE you start. Compared to some of the machines I have, yours is new.

2000 or XP does not see Western Digital 160 GB Ide


Hi,

Seems that the Hard disk is formatted with MAC format and not Dos/Windows.

Connect the hard disk to Mac machine and check the type of filesystem of drives. If they are not NTFS/FAT then it will not be read by windows operating systems.

You need to format the drives with FAT32 or NTFS to get it read by Windows OS, you can do this in MAC machine as well.

Hope it resolves your issue.
Thanks.

I am unable to format my Maxtor One Touch III 500gig External Hard Drive. Once i get to 100% using ms disk manager, a message box pops up saying that it was unable to format the hard drive. In linux when i...


If it shows up in windows explorer as a drive, right click it and choose format and choose ntfs as the file format.

Do you know what format it is when you use linux? I dont think you can use a dos command to format an ntfs volume. Your message probably means it cant read FAT or FAT32 because it probably already is NTFS file format.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
