Well M8:) you cand delete an OS just like that
Now you have to start over again, and format both c and e, then you install windows on C again.
When you done with the installation you still wont be able to see E
So you need to make E visable!
Rightclick on MY COMPUTER, in the end you will see HANDLE, select that one, now you will see a line called DISC HANDLE, select hat one, now you can see both of the partition. Click on your E partion, select to format it and when the format is doen geve it a name, like E again.
Now the disc is visable under MY COMPUTER

Good luck to you M8:)

Thanx for using FixYA!

Reformate the harddrive wipe clean


Formatting will not wipe the hard disk clean completely. If you do not intend to install Windows back on the hard disk then use this program -

I need to reformat my pc please help it is compaq presario 6330ca


You will need a windows installation disk.

Insert the disc into the CD/DVD drive and shutdown the computer. After powering back on the computer you should be prompted with the installation screen. Follow the directions to reformat your computer.

If you have multiple partitions and would like to format only one that is not the operating system drive go to the control panel > System and security > Administrative tools > Computer Management.

Once Computer Management is open select Storage > Disk Management. You can select a partition you would like to reformat from here.

Reformating any drive will erase all data on that drive. Only do this if you are sure you want to. I would stronly recommending backing up all files you might want later.

Have all disks that came with machine,can't find info to reinstall windows XP Home


most machines sold recently don't have an installation disc, but rather set aside another partition to format, and repair installations. When booting on the machine, try pressing F8, or F12, F2... I'm not exactly sure which Function key it is, but one of those will pop up a boot loader menu, where you can reinstall windows from here on out.

Reformating my gateway E 4100


reformatting a drive is a big undertaking, formating the drive will erase everything, including viruses, before you format you need to make sure you have all the discs including the windows disc, driver discs, and a factory restore disc, also you make check the documentation on your system because alot of the gaetway, dell, emachines systems have restore partitions installed on the drive. Also youll need alot of coffee and alot of time, most importantly aside from the windows disc youll need a driver disc for any ethernet or wireless card you have installed. without this you will not have access to the internet most likely and donloading updated drivers is very helpful. This is a time consuming proccess unless there is a restore partition on the harddrive, the documentation will tell you how toaccess it if it exists, if not a restore disc will be nice.

Won't boot even after restore


Looks like you did as much as you could. Only thing left would be to do a fresh install. Let me know how you make out.

Powermate ES setup cannot find hard drive


Do you have the recovery discs that originally came with the computer? If you do, I would use these to reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows. This would be the fastest option.

To do this:
Insert the disc into the CD-ROM
During boot-up and before the 'Use last known good configuration screen' you're speaking of, it'll ask you do 'hit a key to boot from CD' -- Do so
Follow the on-screen instructions. Your objective is to clean the hard drive completely (reformat) and reinstall windows (recover).

If you do not have the recovery disc that came with the computer, you can use the exact same steps above with a Windows XP disc. Be sure to 'format' and 'install' windows--not just 'repair.'

Re-boot computer when all finished.
