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 do i reset fujitsu esprimo back to factory settings its on vista


Hi!
You can press 'F11? key during the startup process to reach a recovery screen, you just need to select 'Restore to factory settings' and it automatically formats the hard drive and the image file from the recovery partition is extracted to the active partition and Operating system is reinstalled .
Hope this can help. Take care.

Hello HP do have a built in recovery option, restart the computer and press F11, if not and you can get onto your computer go to:

Start - Run - type compmgmt.msc then type enter
then disk management
find the recovery partition it should be seperate from C:
mark the recovery partition as active
then restart and press F11

if it still does not work you you can always go to this link:

I have a acer AL5100-ud4400a i pressed alt+f10 while booting now im stuck on (verifing dmi pool data...... update success) nothing else happens any answers would be appreciated.


Huh, it seems to be stuck picking a boot device. Narrow it down by removing (disconnecting) USB, flash or optical devices, and see what happens. It might have been polling a failed DVD-ROM drive or something....

You can also try reseating your videocard or installing a lesser one until you get it booted....

RecoveryDisk Creator does not offer any disk selections to create


To access the recovery partition you need to boot up on a DVD with a partition manager on it, then set the hidden partition as "ACTIVE" and un-Active, the existing partition, then remove DVD and reboot, then the laptop will boot from the recovery partition and should autorun start the recovery procedure.

Replacing with harddrive 40GB


Did you simply swap hard drives? "Couldn't find NTLDR" basically means the PC cannot find any version of Windows installed because the boot file is missing. This could be because you have a CD in the drive or the hard drive is missing or broken.


If you put in a new hard drive to replace your older smaller one you need to reinstall Windows on that new 40GB drive or it just won't work. If you have some PC Tech friends they should be able to move the data which is tricky or help you out.

System recovery


Yes. Using the cds supplied by dell, boot the operating system cd. Delete the active partitions, then quick format it and proceed to reinstall windows. Once windows is installed, use the supplied application and driver cd to reinstall the applications and drivers that came originally with your computer, again following the onscreen instructions.
