Its a long process! First you have to transfer your saved files to disk. CD,DVD, or Floppy. Insert your copy of windows Install disk and turn your computer off and then back on. When Windows asks you if you want to repair or install a fresh version of windows, click fresh version. Have your copy of Serial Numbers ready for your Windows disk. Somewhere in the installation Windows will ask you if you want to install windows to the same drive? Delete this Partition? or Create a Partition?, Know how many Gigabyte or Megabyte your Hard drive is. Click on Delete Partition, Your Hard Drive is now Un-allocated. Now Click Create Partition and enter the amount of Bytes you want to allocate to C: drive, Usually half of what the computer is showing you what you have. Now you have a primary drive of C: and Un-Allocated space, Scroll down with your arrow key and select the unallocated drive and click create drive, the remainder of bytes on your drive will be allocated to that drive and assigned a different drive letter. (D) or what ever. Go back up to C: drive and say install windows to that drive, and from there just follow the windows installation. Good Luck.

Maxtor 32049h2 20.4 GB setup disk for windows 2000


After installing the hard drive in the computer then boot up with the Windows 2000 installation CD. Proceed with installing Windows. delete the existing partition , create a new partition, then format the hard disk in NTFS file format, follow the instruction to complete the installation.
You will also need the product installation code to complete the installation and you will need to activate the Windows license by the Internet or by phone. You will also need to install the motherboard device drivers.

I have had a Maxtor OneTouch A01B120 120GB Hard Drive in storage for some time. I now use a new-ish HP laptop with Windows Vista. Can I use this Maxtor Hard Drive to back up my files or won't it work...


When you plug the unit into the Vista machine, it should appear on the drive list immediately. From there you can copy files manually or use any backup software.
If you wish to use the backup software, the latest version can be downloaded from the Seagate site.

Windows -Delayed write failed. Windows was unable to save all the data for the file D:\$MFT


You've got a "hardware" problem with the disk-drive. Windows cannot write an updated 'MFT' ("Master File Table") to reflect files that you have added/deleted/updated on the Maxtor.

Copy all the files from the Maxtor, e.g., onto another external drive, or "burning" to DVD disks, and then replace the Maxtor disk-drive.

I changed my windows to vista and then i tried to re-install my maxtor one Touch 4 mini 250 GB but the computer can not recognize it, so plz tell me what is the steps to re-install thx


By 'install' I think you mean install Maxtor Manager, but perhaps you have files which were saved by 'drag-and-drop' with the previous OS. These might be recovered the same way, even in Vista, if you can open the OneTouch from Control Panel. To use Manager with the OneTouch which had stuff saved via Manager with a different OS, you could first try to recover the files with Manager installed on another PC using the old OS version. Then format the OneTouch through Control Panel in Vista and with luck Manager will recognise it. If it does not, and you can see the drive in My Computer, then uninstall Manager (which might be corrupt) and try re-installing it. Regards Chas

Hi, I have a maxtor SATA drive with my OS installed, I tried to install another ide maxtor drive for extra storage and now my computer will not boot from the SATA drive.


It will not boot because the new drive is been seen as the primary and not the secondary drive.

On teh new drive you will find (at teh cable connection point) a set of pins with a jumper) this jumper needs to be set so the drive is in either the slave or cable select mode and not teh master mode

Installing windows


1. Windows 2000 / XP maximum hard drive size 137 gigabyte limit

This one was fun. To install a hard drive larger than 137 gigabytes on your computer you need the following:

a motherboard, such as the Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 which support the 48 bit hard drive addressing. Only new motherboards can be counted on to support this.

Windows 2000 service pack 3 or later. Windows XP service pack 1 and greater have this support built in. I assume this isn't a problem with Linux at all...
