Problem with recovery of the system (Windows XP)

Hi
I have problem when I am trying to recover my system (Windows XP) but when Recovery Console appeared and when I press "R". I have a different error message which reads

'Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed, Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and are properly connected to your computer, and any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer -supplied ..............or setup program
Setup can not continue
To quit Setup press F3'

Please can you let me know how I can recover my system without reformatting my hard drive.
I need to retrieve my data from my hard drive.
Dont know that it will help but my BIOS is PhoenixBios.

Thank you for your help

Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
You need to get an Windows Operating system XP
Option 1:
Boot from your CD and follow the directions to start Recovery Console. Then:
Attrib -H -R -S C:\Boot.ini DEL C:\Boot.ini BootCfg /Rebuild Fixboot
Option 2:
Boot from your CD and follow the directions below to start Recovery Console.
Insert the Setup compact disc (CD) and restart the computer. If prompted, select any options required to boot from the CD. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; choose the repair or recover option by pressing R.
If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access from the Recovery Console. When prompted, type the Administrator password. (if you didn't create one try pressing enter).
At the system prompt, type Recovery Console commands; type help for a list of commands, or help commandname for help on a specific command.
Most likely you will need to expand the file from the CD. The command would be expand d:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll. Substitute d: for the drive letter of your CD. Once you have expanded the file type "exit" to exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer.

Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

When i open my laptop, then boot, it goes to this windows 98 startup menu which has following options: reboot to windows xp, recover windows xp w/ full hd, recover xp w/ 2 partitions, and recover xp w/ 1...


first, recover your files. You will need to use something like this data recovery program.
http://www.asoftech.com/adr/

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

My hard drive burnt out. The hard drive test says failed and the operating system won't boot. I placed a leftover hard drive from my Playstation 3 into the laptop and now it says no operating system found....


Try the recovery console from a windows xp recovery/install disk:
To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1.Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.Select the operating system you want to repair (you may have only one option).
4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation. From here I would try "chkdsk /r" and "fixboot"
For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
6.To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
Once you've done this restart the computer and see if it boots up.

This error is also cause by the hard drive storage of your pc notebook, if you know how to locate the hard drive you just have to remove it for a while and then put it back, some loose connection of the hard drive cause the problem, if you find it still not working, you need to repair the system startup of Windown XP it is corrupted that's why it wont start.

Before attempting to check the physical parts of your notebook, try first to check and recover the Windows startup system.

In windows startup repair you can use the Windows Recovery Console.

Source: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058

Here's the step to start in Recovery Console:

  1. Insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive and restart your computer. If you are prompted, select any options required to start (boot) from the CD.
  2. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts. Select the repair or recover option by pressing R.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiboot system, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password.
  5. At the command prompt, type Recovery Console commands, and then you can refer to the commands that are listed in the "Available commands within Windows Recovery Console" section.
  6. At any time, you can type Help for a list of available commands.
  7. At any time, you can type Help commandname for help on a specific command. For example, you can type help attrib to display the help on the attributes command.
  8. At any time, you can exit Windows Recovery Console by typing Exit at the command line.
After you start the Windows Recovery Console, you receive the following message:

Microsoft Windows(R) Recovery Console

The Recovery Console provides system repair and recovery functionality.

1: C:\WINDOWS

Which Windows Installation would you like to log on to ?

(To cancel, press ENTER)

Enter the number for the appropriate Windows installation. In this example, you would press 1. Then, Windows prompts you to enter the Administrator account password.

Note If you use an incorrect password three times, the Windows Recovery Console closes. Also, if the Security Accounts Manager (SAM) database is missing or damaged, you cannot use the Windows Recovery Console because you cannot be authenticated correctly. After you enter your password and the Windows Recovery Console starts, type Exit to restart the computer.

Use the fixboot command to repair the startup boot of your notebook.

To create a recovery partition in harddisk


Unfortunately the Recovery partition could not be reacreated manually. But you can recover it by using the Y410 Recovery Disc but that means reinstalling everything and youll end up with windows vista again. You can reinstall XP but do not delete the partition that usually has 10-15GB of space because that is the hidden partition for the recovery. You can call 18774536686. If your computer is out of warranty, it would only cost you 59$ for the recovery disc

Choose the Windows Installation

Enter the Administrator Password

    Type Y in response to this question and press Enter.
  4. The next prompt asks you to Enter Load Identifier:.
    This is the name of the operating system. For example, type Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition and press Enter.
