Hi,

Sorry to hear of your difficulty. Usually in your kind of situation data can easily be recovered using any Windows data recovery software. But my personal suggestion to you is to first try to run a demo version first and if you see directory list of your lost data then only proceed with the purchase.

Sometimes when OS fail to install then file System of your hard drive can go corrupt which can result to partition not found error.

Regards,

SOURCE: Hard deive / non-system errod when running recovery CD's

Hi,

My name is Armymason, have you thought about running a hardware diagnostic test? Do a search on the internet for a free one and check to see if the hard drive is bad.

Thanks,

SOURCE: Hard Drive Error during system recovery

You need to run a hard drive diagnostic disk in dos,(before windows starts) First check with HP, You can also use a program called HDD Regenerator 1.51. This will check the drive for bad sectors, and then you can try and repair them. This way you might
be able to see some of the data you want. If the sectors that where
repaired had the operating system on them, you should just get a new drive,(if not under warranty) then after you have a new OS installed on the new drive, you can plug in the old drive and see what you can recover.

SOURCE: tried to do a recovery on my compaq the first

If you did not install a new drive and you are just trying to reinstall windows you may still ba able to do this by using the F10 F11 or F12 key during startup depending on the model. This is if you have a Vista or Newer XP machine. This should give you the choice of reinstalling windows from the secondary partition.
If this is a new drive, try installing with only one stick of ram if you have more than one stick. You may be having a problem with ram.
Hope this helps...

Gateway NV5105u Laptop. I have the Windows 7 disk. There is no recovery partition or drivers, I receive error & I've tried Diskpart to create a partition and I get a message no disk partition found.


My advice in this isn't expert.

I seem to remember when I loaded Windows 7 I was given the option to create a recovery partition. I didn't take that option and suspect whoever loaded your operating system also didn't.

I think your best option is to format the drive and reload everything. Formatting is best done by removing the drive and formatting with a separate computer.

You should be able to create a boot able stick for this kind of issue.
Sounds like you have hard disk errors. Open the Command Prompt when the Installation DVD Loads and type the following commands.
chkdsk /r c:
chkdsk /r d:
chkdsk /r e:
chkdsk /r f:
.etc until you get the message that the volume could not be opened for direct access. For any drives that do not give the message:
"Windows has checked the file system and found no problems"
run chkdsk again as above. In other words, if it says:
"Windows has made corrections to the file system"
after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

I realize you may only have one disk show up in Windows explorer, but you may have more than one disk through recovery options. This is because the system creates a hidden boot partition (which will be C: in recovery), you may have a recovery partition for your PC that is hidden (which will be D: in recovery), and you will have your primary Windows partition (which may be E: in recovery). A custom PC will likely have at least C: and D: to scan.

Missing Operating System on D: partition Bootup


Follow the steps from this site http://www.wikihow.com/Change-the-Active-Partition-of-Your-Hard-Disk-with-Parted-Magic. When you changed the active partition you told the computer to look for information from the wrong partition. Using the program from that site will allow you to make the other partition active again. You'll then be able to boot into Windows again. As far as making backup discs, I believe you hit F11 while booting to access the recovery partition. From there you can make your recovery discs. Not 100 percent sure on that though. And you will need to get the windows partition set back as active first.

How can I access the recovery partition on the hard drive? (note: F8 does not work and 0 does not work, but the partition exists)


I've found that the way to access the recovery partition on Toshiba's changes very frequently between different models and different years. If you have a partition the best solution would be to boot into Windows and create recovery discs with Toshiba's recovery utility, so if for some reason in the future something happens you have the discs. I believe you can use that same utility within Windows to restore your computer. If for some reason you can't log into normal mode, you can try doing this in safe mode. If Windows doesn't seem to work at all, I will need the model number and I will try to do a little research. Hope this helps!

I have a vaio VGN-SR220J notebook. I tried to do a complete recovery with the recovery disc I made when I first purchased it in March 2009. However after the first disc, it told me to insert the second one...


Hi devil_ameet,

The issue may be with the Recovery Discs that you created. I would suggest that you try accessing the Recovery Partition in the Computer by pressing and holding the F10 Key while restarting the Computer. If you see a "Edit Boot Options" screen, please press the Enter Key. This would trigger the Computer to the VAIO Recovery Center which is present in the hidden partition of the Hard Drive. There, in the VAIO Recovery Center, please select the "Restore C: Drive" option to perform the Recovery.

If the Recovery Partition is not present in the Computer, the Recovery Discs are the only option to perform the Recovery. In that case, we can try resetting the BIOS to the default values, disconnecting the external Devices connected to the Computer and resetting the RAM Modules to troubleshoot the issue. Please let me know if you can access the Recovery Partition and perform the System Recovery.

Please let me know if you have any questions and require any further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

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

How to recovery the system from recovery partition


Did you know you only get ONE shot at creating a recovery disc? And most of the time it is garbage, just like Vista.

He tried to put XP on it and failed? weird.

A couple things you can do...

1. Get your hands on a Vista disk. If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow a Vista disk. Do a complete fresh install. Use your "Product Key" and you will have your own Licensed, perfectly legal version of Vista.

2. Get yourself a copy of XP. Delete all partitions, then create a new one. Don't try to save that Vista recovery partition...it's toast. I recommend XP, but I'm a dinosaur.

If you know anyone that works in IT, you can borrow
