    sTEPS TO PERFROM USING THE CD

  • Insert the Windows CD and start the computer.
  • When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R.
  • Type a number corresponding to the Windows installation you wish to repair (usually 1) and press Enter.
  • When prompted, type the administrator password and press Enter.
  • From the command prompt, copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the i386 folder of the CD to the root folder of the hard drive. In the example commands given below, C: is the hard drive and D: is the CD-ROM drive. You will need to change the drive letters if appropriate:
    COPY D:\I386\NTLDR C:\
    COPY D:\I386\NTDETECT.COM C:\

  • Remove the Windows XP CD from the drive and restart the computer.

What should be the standard format for portable HDD? is it NTFS or FAT? and does this affect the loading performance on computer specially when retrieving files on it?


Depends on what you want to store on it. FAT can only handle files that are less than 2GB. If you want to put bigger files on it then NTFS is the way to go. NTFS is usually faster than FAT, but for compatability with older computers (Win98 or earlier) you probably should use FAT32.

To solve your problem, format your disk with the NTFS file system. Then, reformat the disk again with the FAT file system.

Samsung 200gb hdd


When u bought a new hdd, it shud not have any partition on it. but in ur case, I assume u have formatted it to ntfs but no operating system is installed in it.

If u want to make the new hdd as slave and have another old hdd as primary, that have already an operating system installed in it, then the problem shud be hdd boot priority in bios. Enter ur bios and check for hdd boot priority and put the old hdd to the top most order, then restart. this shud fix the problem.

If u installed OS in ur new hdd (win xp),
1) ntldr or ntdetect.com is missing on root dir. (c:\). If u have another computer that works and have xp installed, just put this new hdd along with the current hdd and boot to windows. Copy ntldr and ntdetect.com to your new hdd. Or another way is just repair using windows xp boot cd.
2)the windows partition is not set 'active'. to set active, boot into winxp setup and press 'r'. this will lead to recovery console. type ur passwrod for admin (def=none). use diskpart command to set active. for easy way, put the new hdd to another computer. boot to windows. rightclick my computer, choose manage. on left pane select disk manager. rightclick on ur partition, then set active.

Hope this help

HDD wont get formatted


Hi, maybe the easiest way for you to format this drive would be if you could attach it as a secondary drive in a pc that is currently working and then try formatting it in the desired format from within windows. Windows will recognize a drive it only needs to format it in order to access it for data storage. You may need to change the jumper setting to slave on the HDD before you plug it in.

If you need any help with this just let me know.
