Unable to boot and hard disk prob

Dear Amit Sinha

First verify that no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.
If not then it seems that your windows boot file got corrupted. all you have to do is try using your notebooks recovery CD if you dont have a recovery CD then you have to use the windows installer CD
1 Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
2 When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
3 Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
4 Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
5 You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
6 Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy e:\i386\ c:\

7 Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

Else you have to format your computer and reinstall windows again

Purchased new Iomega 1 TB Home Media network HD, and both my MBP and PC windows 7 won't recognize the device.

you have to initilize the disk in disk management utility, heres how (windows XP)

  1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
  2. Click on the Performance and Maintenance link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Just double-click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.
  3. In the Performance and Maintenance window, click on the Administrative Tools link located under the or pick a Control Panel icon heading near the bottom of the window.
  4. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on Computer Management.
  5. When Computer Management opens, click on Disk Management on the left.
    In a few seconds, Disk Management will load on the right side of the Computer Management window.
    Note: If you don't see Disk Management listed, you may need to click on the + icon to the left of Storage to expand the option.
  6. You can now format a hard drive, change a drive's letter, partition a hard drive, or do whatever else you need to do in Windows XP's Disk Management tool.

Wireless External HD connection

I had the same problem in Vista but it spontaneously resolved itself after some time, but as a temporary solution you can just map to it. Figure out it's IP address and then go to: Start->right click on Network->Map Network Drive...->fill in the Folder field (i.e. \\ ) and presto you should see the login screen (admin/admin by default). It's not the best but works well enough. Hope that helps.

Just got a Maxtor MaxAttach 4300 used and need to reset to factory...

Since no one has posted on this I?ll give you my best guess. Disclaimer, I don?t have one of these, Maxtor is now owned by Seagate, they have discontinued support and I can?t find a manual. Having said all of that from what I?ve read this runs Windows 2000 server and allows you to physically connect a keyboard, mouse and monitor to it. I would try connecting these external devices to the box, boot up and try logging in. If you literally don?t know ANY of the passwords you can try booting the system with a utility tool that will find and remove the administrator password. There are several of them readily available (usually Linux based) available for free, here is the link for one: That will allow you to log into the operating system and configure it as you wish. Be aware that this is not supported by Microsoft and could wind up corrupting the operating system. At that point the only option would be to rebuild the server software from scratch. Good luck and let us know how it goes or if you have any other questions.
