Question about NEC PowerMate 2000 PM2002 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Recovery menu Hello, I have an old NEC Powermate with Intel CEleron processor. I do have a recovery floppy disk. I unzipped the content of the Recovery Backup Partition on the hard drive. I have read that I can make a boot floppy disk with a file AUTOEXEC.BAT: C: C \ Call NETRUN.BAT I did this but when I start the pc I get: You can not boot from this disc, etc... I can well see a NETRUN.BAT on the C: What else can I try? Thank you anyway for trying helping me. Greetings, Marian Lazar

    Thank you sinkanew,



    I learned from you how to make a bootable floppy. Then I copied my autoexec.bat file to it.

    Hier is the result:



    searching for boot recrd from floppy ... ok

    starting



    A:\>C:

    Invalid drive specification

    A:\>CD\

    A:\>CALL NETRUN.BAT

    Bad command or file name



    Then I tryed A:\>C:

    Invalid drive specification

    A:\>exit, works either not.



    If I run the same autoexec.bat file from the DOS window in Windows ik runs well! But that's not the meaning...

    My operating system is Windows XP Home edition.



    I do something wrong but I do not understand what?



    Thank you for your help



    Greetings, Marian Lazar (Holland)

You need to make your floppy bootable by formatting with the "copy system files" option set. Then copy your autoexec.bat file to it, or you could simply type NETRUN and press ENTER from the c:> prompt once you've booted. (What's the operating system?)

I have been trying to fix my brother in laws emachines desktop computer for 3 days now. It has Windows Vista and Intel Celeron D Processor 356. I used the recovery disc and the computer started working...


The disk is corrupted and it interferes with the install process. Just get this
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/
boot from it and format your entire disk to reiserfs then to FAT32 - this way any trace of the old NTFS file system is thoroughly wiped. Now launch the recovery process one more time and it will automatically detect the FAT32 partition and will reformat it to NTFS in the process.

I need to restore my compter to facotory using system recovery and I don't have the disk. I have a Emachines EL1850G-42W


Hi christoph73030

You have three choices..
1...Try to do a system restore to an earlier date.
This will take your comuter back to an earlier time when it was operating good, pick one of the darkened dates before your troubles started..
To do a restore: Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
2...Buy a restore disk from Emachines
3...Buy and Install a new operating system...
Sorry for the bad news
Please take time to rate me

If the system recovery disk doesn't work it usually mans that the hard drive is bad. I would change the hard drive and use the system recovery disk on it after replacement.

Need to reset factory nec powermate as daughter has forgotten password as admin


You can reset by downloading a password restore iso file and creating a bootable CD from this if you have a CD writer on another computer. Otherwise check the NEC website on how to restore the original factory image (but you will lose all installed programs and user files).

Or use a friends PC to make a bootable floppy or CD.

http://www.loginrecovery.com you can make a bootable floppy disk or CD from this site.

Does any one have gateway GT5220 Installation disk ?


Create an ASR Floppy Disk loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); The following steps can create an ASR floppy disk from an ASR backup operation: 1. Format a 1.44 megabyte (MB) floppy disk and insert the disk into the floppy disk drive of the computer. 2. In System Tools, start the Backup program. When the Backup and Restore Wizard is displayed, click Next. 3. Click Restore Files and Settings, and then click Next. 4. In the What to Restore dialog box, select the media that contains the ASR backup. Ensure that the media is inserted. 5. Expand the Automated System Recovery Backup Set that corresponds to the ASR floppy disk that you want to create. 6. Expand the second instance of the drive letter that contains the system files. Expand the Windows_folder/Repair folder. 7. Click the following files from this repair folder: Asr.sif and Asrpnp.sif, and then click Next. 8. At the Completing Backup or Restore Wizard screen, click Advanced. 9. At the Where to Restore screen, set the Restore Files to: dialog box to Single Folder, and then set the Folder Name dialog box to the root of your floppy drive, for example, "A:\". 10. Click Next. The other options in this wizard are optional and do not affect the transfer of files to the floppy disk. When the wizard is finished, the files are copied to the location that you had previously specified. The ASR floppy disk is ready for use in the event of an ASR restore operation.

NOTE: The Asr.sif and Asrpnp.sif files must reside on the root of the floppy disk drive to be used during a ASR restore operation. Starting the Windows Recovery Console loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To start the Windows Recovery Console, use one of the following methods: • Use the Windows Setup floppy disks or the Windows CD-ROM to start your computer. At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press F10 or press 'R" to repair. 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.
Type EXIT to exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer.

1: C:\WINDOWS

Which Windows Installation would you like to log on to
(To cancel, press ENTER)? After you enter the number for the appropriate Windows installation, Windows will then prompt 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 have correct authentication. After you enter your password and the Windows Recovery Console starts, type exit to restart the computer.

When you use Windows XP Professional, you can set group policies to enable automatic administrative logon.

Use the Winnt32.exe utility with the /cmdcons option to add the Windows Recovery Console to the Windows Startup folder. This procedure requires approximately 7 megabytes (MB) of hard disk space on the system partition to hold the Cmdcons folder and files.

System recovery Floppy


you can purchase locally a usb floppy drive and download some small utilities in the internet that can be fit in the floppy disk, but i suggest that better use memory stick because it is cheaper and you can have more space than floppy disk.
