Question about Computers & Internet
The hard drive has died,so the tattoo.bin and the exths.bin are lost.
So i bought a new hard drive,and I bought new MCD' s(three CD's) by PackhardBell Netherlands,but they will not give assistence by creating new tattoo.bin and exhts.bin,because laptop is older as three years.
Maybe you can help me.
Down load (2MB)to desk top put a CD-R in cd rewriter drive
then double click the icon to make a bootable CD
To recover Packard Bell choose 1 from first menu
to copy the TATTOO.bin and exths.bin to a USb memory stick
put memory stick in the usb drive.then choose option 2 from
the first menu.
when you get to recovery menu or an error message press ESC (escape key)
to get to C:\>prompt
this is RAM drive letter
and press enter you get a menu
choose 1 DOS Tools
then you get a second menu giving you choice to
copy the TATTOO.BIN and EXTHS.BIN to the USB drive
which has now got letter D:
then change your hard disk partition it and format it (FAT32 lablel it HDD)
then again boot with the bootable CD you created and
1.choose dos tools
and this time you got a choice to import or copy the
TATTOO.BIN and EXTHS.BIN from the USB drive to the new hard disk
in the recovery section of TS.bat
you got a choice of
to write correct tattoo to DMI part of BIOS.
