I need to reinstall windows 7 and I was told to fdisk the hard drive on my laptop to do a clean install. If I need to do this can you tell me how to fdisk a laptop hared drive


Before you get into all of this ... try to restore your computer to an earlier date ... if that doesnt work, most manufacturers have the original software for the computer on a special section of the hard disk, called a 'restore' ... try those before you get into the fDisk business. Otherwise you will soon be way over your head ... This process is for someone who has experience in the process. Belive me when I tell you fDisk is not your first and best alternative.

Cant install windows


System will show CD as C: and "COPYING" doesn't make drive "BOOTABLE".
You have to let the restore CD do the whole process of FDISK, FORMAT and INSTALL.
If you want HD bootable with no "WINDOWS"
use this command at A: prompt.
FORMAT C: /S
I'd have to get out my Win/DOS notes for more.
Try "Help Format" if that doesn't work.
I would Let the CD do everything if you are not familiar with DOS installs.

I installed just as the instructions said and i cant get my pc to recognize my 1.5tb hard drive


First download this disk iso and add fdisk to the disk and burn ituse this link:
http://www.bootdisks.us/ms-dos/5/ms-dos-bootable-cd-images.html

download fdisk from this link FDisk 6.22
http://www.uv.tietgen.dk/staff/mlha/Download/dos/#FDISK

Once you have downloaded and burnt the disk, make sure the drive is showing in the bios, then set to boot using the cd/dvd-rom and insert the disk.
When loaded, at the command prompt type fdisk, find the 1.5tb hardrive and create a primary dos partition, it may take a while so be patient, once done take the cd-rom out of the drive and reboot the mechine, goto my computer and you should see the drive, and it will have a drive letter next to i. It want contain anything as it has not yet been formatted.
To format just right click on the drive and choose format, choose ntfs and press ok, it takes a while so again be patient, and you should now have a usable new drive. hope this helps, any problems post back.

The master boot record maybe be corrupted or virus infected.
To fix the MBR, boot up with your DOS disk and type fdisk /mbr
Then install XP, and delete all partitions and then create a new partition, then do a full NTFS format on the new partition.

I`m unable to install windows 98 in seagate 80 gb ide barracuda hdd


For W98, if you create the bootdisk from within windows, you will need to go here to download the newest version of FDISK.EXE then copy it to the bootdisk, allowing it to overwrite the older version. This way you will have support for larger harddrives.

FDISK LIMITATION WITH 64GB DRIVES:
Why does FDISK not recognize my disk (or RAID array) which is larger than 64GB?

There is a bug in Microsoft's FDISK under Windows 95B, 98 and 98SE that can be corrected by downloading a newer version. See Knowledge Base Article Q263044 for more information.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q263044

When you use Fdisk.exe to partition a hard disk that is larger than 64 GB (64 gigabytes, or 68,719,476,736 bytes) in size, Fdisk does not report the correct size of the hard disk.

The size that Fdisk reports is the full size of the hard disk minus 64 GB. For example, if the physical drive is 70.3 GB (75,484,122,112 bytes) in size, Fdisk reports the drive as being 6.3 GB (6,764,579,840 bytes) in size.

NOTE: This hotfix is not designed for 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA) hard disks, and it is not supported on hard disks larger than 137 GB. However, even if the drive is physically larger than 137 GB, if you create partitions smaller than 137 GB, this FDISK.EXE version will work correctly. (THE FORMAT COMMAND WILL SHOW THE DRIVE AMOUNT IN DOS TO BE OFF THE MARK, BUT WILL BE CORRECT WHEN YOU GET INTO WINDOWS ITSELF)

Direct English Version download:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/Win98/Update/8266R/W98/EN-US/263044USA8.EXE

This package installs the updated Fdisk.exe to the Windows\Command and Windows\Options\Cabs folders, on a computer running Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition. If you are starting a computer from a Windows 98 Startup Disk in order to partition and format the hard disk, you should copy the updated Fdisk.exe from the Windows\Command folder to the Startup Disk, replacing the original Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition version of Fdisk.exe on the Startup Disk.

Unable to format hard disk.


ady,
You did not mention what steps you have tried. and what the problem occurs when you try to format. It also depends which OS you are using.

There is a solution very easy to use. If you have Win98 or older version then try to boot with command prompt only aund then run FDISK. Using FDISK delete all partition and create new partions, then try to format and install your OS.

For Boot Disk you can surf/download from BootDisk (click here)

If you want detail help, please post your problem in details.

Thanks
