Full format of compaq presario 2100


Most notebooks have a separate partition on the hard drive that holds the recovery media needed to restore the unit.
You can usually run this by pressing F10 during the boot up process. You may need to press it several times in order to get it work.
If that doesn't work, then you will need to contact Compaq in order to order the recovery media kit.

I have an old laptop that partition and hd have been reformatted. I've tried using boot disk but keep getting the message that says, ''save to disk partition not found. So, can't get win98se to load as...


Haven't used win98 for a while so bear with me and this uses DOS COMMANDS too.
If useing restore cd/floppy you have to use a utility from compaq that creates two partitions on hard-drive.
They may have a restore floppy if you need it too.
One for "recovery files" and one for "OS Boot"
AHH, the memories, I still have my 95/98/ME Laptops up and running for older stuff. HP n CQ too.
Restore CD should do it all though.
If no restore CD - have Win98 CD?
if Harddrive partitioned and formated - Just do 1
1. boot from Win98 CD.
Partition n Format
2. Choose boot to DOS (puts u in virtual drive A)
AT PROMPT
3. Type drive letter of CD ( C: D: or E: )
4. Type CD Win98
5. Type Fdisk ( to partion drive)
reboot n do 1 + 2
6. Type format C: ( I do this to ckeck drive for errors)
OR
JUST Boot from CD and follow install instructions.
1 to 6 for if you have problem with Win98 CD setting up Harddrive.

Recovery drive


Usually (since drive d is another partition) you would boot to it by means of startup, the laptop should say something about, to enter a menu here press F6 or something similar. So when your computer turns on, press the f12, or f8 or f2 keys and see if it gives you a menu (the recovery option would most likely be in there). Beware to PLEASE backup your files before formating and turning everything back to as it was :) . Also, you should seriously consider asking Compaq for a recovery DVD, they are usually free and they are livesavers if something goes wrong with the partition on your lappy.
