    What kind of UNIX is this and what is the problem shown with the other 3 drives? What kind of drives are these? IDE or SATA or SCSI?

    What do you want to re-install on the other three drives? Windows or UNIX?

    Please try to detail what you want and what the problem is that you want solved. It will help you get better help from everyone. :-)

It would be helpful if you can detail what this "problem" that you say your Win XP is showing, really is. Is it an error message when you click Drive E in MY computer? What is the error? Or what is the problem?

You can re-install windows if you _really_ need to. The only thing it might do is overwrite grub boot menu, which you can reinstall with knoppix (as kingsolmn suggested) or with the bootable Linux CD which you used to install Linux.

But be careful to backup your data - your C:\Documents and Settings\Username  to another drive before reinstalling.

    This virus problem and the Linux installation and re-installation of Windows are totally two different things. And Linux installation is _not_ causing the virus problem.

    I suggest you first download the Malware bytes anti malware:
    http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

    Install it and scan and remove any malware that you seem to have.

    Which antivirus are you using?

I would suggest using a "Live" Unix system disk to fix the file system problem. Sometimes file system locking by the host operating system will cause problems accessing secondary HDDs. Try the free Knoppix system (www.knopper.net), this system works from a CD so that you have complete access to all of your drives. Use this to move/copy/save data so that the drives with problems can be formatted/reallocated.

Desktop won't come on


Windows does this which is why registry repair and other utilities are popular. I have not found any os that does not have this problem except Unix and Linux. Mac os has less often the need to fix the fragmenting of data, but still needs tools like tech tool pro.
At this point you may use the original windows install disc to repair your windows issue. Go online and search for repair win with install disc or just pop the install disc in and follow directions carefully regarding repair vs install.
To stop this from happening in the future defrag your hdd every month. You will need to get a decent registry cleaner too especially if you like to install the free and lower end games people like to download from the net.
The thing is windows is a very complex mess of os plus apps and adding video players and free junk software you will create serious problems over time.

Windows and unix are 2 separate and distinct operating systems.

What is the specific problem you have connecting this internal drive? This is an internal SATA optical drive for a desktop with a standard 5 1/4" drive opening. Many optical drives ship as OEM devices; you will need to reuse the data and power cable from a previous drive or purchase a SATA data cable (7 pin). A locking cable can help keep the cable connected to the drive. If your power supply (PSU) doesn't have SATA power connectors (15 pin), you will need an IDE to SATA adapter. Most online cable shops have the best prices for these.

If your computer doesn't have a SATA port available, you need to add a controller card or use a SATA to IDE converter.

If your case is a ultra-small form factor, you may have a modified optical drive opening. These cases use a slim optical drive (mostly sold as laptop drives). In that case, get an external 5 1/4" enclosure or a USB to SATA adapter.

If you have the drive in the computer, press the Eject button. If that works, then the power cable to the drive is fine. Check the data cable to both the drive and the motherboard. My old computer had SATA connections on the motherboard that would not allow the cable to lock. When I bumped anything in the case, I had to check that the cable was re-secured.

What OS are you using? For most versions of Windows, your OS should have the correct driver or find it with Windows Update (if the computer is on the network). Try launching Windows Update and checking if an optional driver is waiting to be installed. I don't know if Unix or Mac OSX drivers exist for this drive. You may need a different optical drive.

The drive should now be listed in the storage devices (Computer/My Computer). If you can't read files, try another disk. If it still doesn't work, try cleaning the lens or a different drive. Some drives are sensitive to the power supply for burning optical discs.

I hope these suggestions help. Please add a comment with the specific problem and case/OS that you are using for additional solutions.

Compaq screen comes on, then goes to black screen with "disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter" I don't have a sytem disk, where can I get one?


This would depend on which OS you are trying to install. Also, if the system booted before and you are receiving this message you probably have a bad hard drive or corrupted system files. There are free operating systems out there such as Unix and Linux, or you can go through Microsoft and get the OEM disc for your preferred operating system. If you do not want to puchase the OEM disc yourself then you can also go through a pc repair shop and have them do an OS reinstall. Hope this helps, let me know if I can assist you with anything else.

When i turn on PC i get "windows error recovery" windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your windows installation disk and restart...


You need a Windows OS install or upgrade disc appropriate for the one on your computer (including the service packs you have installed). The Acer disc will only restore to the original configuration. You will need to try to get an OS disc from Microsoft (difficult if your computer is out of warranty) or from someone who has one. Try locating a Windows User's Group (many of the members have multiple OS discs and will lend them out) in your area or a local repair person. Then you can use the Recovery Console.

Alternatively, get a Unix CD and an external hard drive or optical disc writer. Boot from the Unix CD (usually you can press F12 to access the choose boot location). Then plug in the USB hard drive or optical disc drive. Mount this disc and copy your important data from the non-bootable disc to the external media. Then run the Acer disc and download all the updates before trying to reinstall software and return the files to your machine from the .

In Win7, everyone can create this from Start > All Programs > Maintenance > Create a System Repair Disc. (So then you get one burned from any Win7 computer as long as you match Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate.)

I hope this helps.

(please note that if your restore disc provides an OS earlier than XP SP3, Windows Update will not work. You will have to manually find the updates on microsoft.com)

Is it possible to keep the operating system on drive c and the data on drive d and how to do this


yes, partition the drive...
If installing a new OS, Partition drive one with 1/4 of the drives size, then install the os to that partition, once installed if using Windows, partition 1 should show as C: drive, and partition 2 should show as an additional drive.. Each Partition will show as a separate drive..

If the OS is already installed, you can use a program such as partition magic, or you can use MS disc manage (right click My Computer, Select Manage)..

This Acer AST 160 I'm working on crashed...


Computer stops at verifying dmi pool data. Issue: Computer stops at verifying dmi pool data.
Cause: This issue can be caused by any of the below reasons.
  1. Corrupt boot files on the computer.
  2. Settings for hard disk drive are not correct.
  3. Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue.
  4. Boot devices not set properly.
  5. BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly.
  6. Connections loose or disconnected.
  7. Bad Hard disk drive or other bad hardware.
Solution: Corrupt boot files on the computer
If the computer has no bootable files on the drive it is attempting to boot from it is possible that the computer may halt at " verifying dmi pool data..."
To resolve this issue:
  • Boot from a bootable floppy diskette. Ensure that this diskette was made on the same Microsoft Windows operating system that is installed on your computer.
  • Once at the A:> prompt type "sys c:" and press enter. This should report the message "File system transferred." Once transferred remove the diskette and reboot the computer.
If the computer continues to not boot attempt to re-create the master boot record by booting from the bootable floppy diskette again. Once at the A:> prompt type "fdisk /mbr" and press enter. This should return you to the prompt without giving you any message. Once at the prompt remove the diskette and reboot the computer.
Additional information about the "fdisk /mbr" command can be found on document CH000175.
Note: The above information only applies to Microsoft Windows users. If you are running a Linux / Unix variant or other operating system such as OS/2 and the computer is freezing at this DMI message ensure that Linux / Unix has been properly installed first and/or your boot manger is not corrupt.
Settings for hard disk drive are not correct
The computer freezing at "Verifying dmi pool data..." may be caused when the hard disk drive settings within CMOS are not set properly. Enter CMOS and verify that the hard disk drive settings are set properly and/or that it is set to Auto Detect. Additional information about entering CMOS setup is found on document CH000192.
Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue
Verify no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer. In some cases the computer may be trying to boot from either of these drives causing issues with the boot sequence.
Boot devices not set properly
The computer stopping at " verifying dmi pool data..." can be caused when the boot devices on your computer are not set properly in CMOS. First, verify that no CD or diskette is in your computer. If a CD or diskette is in the computer attempt to remove this first to determine if it was attempting to boot from it.
If No CD or diskette is in the computer and your computer still halts at the DMI message enter CMOS setup (steps found on document CH000192) and verify that the boot options are set properly. We commonly recommend that the floppy be set the first boot device, hard drive as the second boot device and the CD-ROM as the third boot device.
BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly
If none of the above recommendations have resolved your issue

if you don't care about the information on the hard drive, use a boot cd for your operating system (windows/linux/unix...whatever) to reformat the hard drive and then install it on the newly formated hard drive
