Hard disk problem

When I insert the bootable disk the system shows all partition and all data of hard disk drive. And when I insert the window CD it shows that there is no enough space in your hard disk and shows only 8 MB space in hard disk.

This is because your current install is using all the Hard Disk space - it will be the other partitian on display at this point to get the space back you will have to delete the partitian the format it.

WARNING: Deleting the partitian will make you lose ALL the data currently on the Hard Drive

Bootable USB guide, here we assume that you are using either Vista or Windows 7 to create a bootable USB.

1. Insert your USB (4GB+ preferable) stick to the system and backup all the data from the USB as we are going to format the USB to make it as bootable.
2. Open elevated Command Prompt.
To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter.
Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.
3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:
DISKPART and hit enter.
LIST DISK and hit enter.


Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive.
In the below image my USB drive disk no is Disk 1.
4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter.
As these commands are self explanatory, you can easily guess what these commands do.
SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number)
CLEAN

CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1

ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=NTFS

(Format process may take few seconds)
ASSIGN
EXIT

Don't close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.
5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I use "D" as my optical (DVD) drive letter and "H" as my USB drive letter.
6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:
D:CD BOOT and hit enter. Where "D" is your DVD drive letter.


CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.
BOOTSECT.EXE/NT60 H:
(Where "H" is your USB drive letter)
7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.
You are done with your bootable USB.

You can now use this bootable USB as bootable DVD on any computer that comes with USB boot feature (most of the current motherboards support this feature).

Note that this bootable USB guide will not work if you are trying to make a bootable USB on XP computer.

Booting a bootable Windows CD/DVD for a fresh installation when the boot order...


There have been several times that people have been stuck with a virus infected or a corrupt Windows Operating System and are finding it very difficult to get a fresh installation because of a boot order problem. It could also be a clean working Operating System but the user just wants a new one. The PC, whether laptop or desktop, could be a gift from a friend or one that they have been using for some time.

In the case of a gift from a friend, it could be that a forgotten password has been set in the bios and all has been done by the user to gain access but to no avail. There are also situations whereby the boot order is set alright to boot from CD/DVD but the PC just fails to boot from the CD. In these cases, even thought the bootable CD/DVD is in the drive, the PC just boots straight to the unwanted Operating System but you know that your CD/DVD drive works fine.

Here's what to do:
Obtain appropriate screw drivers and carefully remove the hard disk from the laptop or desktop. Now Obtain an appropriate external hard disk connector for the type of hard drive you have. In the case of a desktop hard disk, you could easily connect it as a slave hard drive in another available desktop by setting the jumper to the slave position (could be primary slave or secondary slave depending on the drives in the PC).

Try and backup any important files from the hard disk or from the partition with the Operation System in the case where more than one partition exists on the hard drive. When that is done, then you will need a Hard Disk or Partition Management Software like Windows Disk Management(which can be accessed by right-clicking on 'My Computer' and selecting 'Manage' and the 'Disk Management' in the resulting window). You can also use a third party software.

Now delete the partition and create a new Partition (Primary Partition). Then format the partition (NTFS file system recommended). When this is done, disconnect the hard disk and fix it back into the PC. Now you are ready to install a fresh Windows Operation System. Turn on the PC, Insert the bootable Operating System CD/DVD (e.g Windows XP) and there you go: your PC will automatically boot from the CD/DVD.

Wish you all the best.

Hi

Whether a CD will boot or not really decided by th emotherboard, it is decided by the basic control program called BIOS. BIOS works in a simple way by, if set to boot from a CD or DVD, checks whether the disk is bootable and, if so, boots from it.

First ensure that the discs you are using are all bootable.

Bootable Backup Restore and Partition Manager disks only work if data partitions already exist on the hard drive.

Bootable operating system discs can boot whether there is any data or partitions on the hard drive or not.

Partition Manager software can be used inside windows, to create, delete, resize and copy existing partitions. In other words, install and run the program from your Windows desktop.

Look here for guidance on creating bootable CDs

How i can format wyse x90l


You can not format the Windows Drive (referred to as windows partition) while the windows is running.
CAUTION: FORMATTING A PARTITION OR HARD DRIVE WILL RESULT IN ALL THE DATA BEING LOST.
But you can format any other drive or partition, to format a drive or partition other than the windows', open My computer right click on the drive icon and click format, press all the OKs and your drive will be formatted in a while.



To format whole hard drive, even the windows partition,
CAUTION: FORMATTING A DRIVE WILL RESULT IN LOOSING ALL THE DATA AND THE WINDOWS AS WELL.

Now back to business, to do a complete format you need a bootable cd, If you have your recovery disk or even a bootalble windows disk you can format everything.
Lets assume that you have a windows bootable cd, insert the disk while the laptop is starting (make sure that the computer boots up with the cd), let the setup load its files, then follow the instruction until you reach to the point when you can see your hard drives and its asking for formatting press F to format the drive which is highlighted.
Thats it.
Please feel free to ask me any further.

How do i format my laptop off of the partition on the hard drive. I've managed to hit f 10 and get into the bios but no format option was given


Formatting the hard drive is not a function of the BIOS. You will need to boot the machine from either the Windows CD and do a fresh setup (which will give you the option to format the hard drive) or boot from a bootable CD or floppy disk that has the format command on it. From there you execute the format command and follow the directions.

Solution: Floppy or CD that is not bootable is currently in the computer Verify that no floppy diskette or CD is currently in the computer. If a diskette or CD is in the computer that is not bootable your computer may attempt to boot from that diskette or CD causing this error message.
BIOS is not setup properly Additional information and help with getting into BIOS or CMOS setup can be found on http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000...
Verify that your hard disk drive is setup and detected properly in BIOS. You're computer should list a hard disk drive installed either under the main page or the drives page in BIOS. If BIOS indicates the drive is not installed or not detected skip to Hard Disk drive is bad or not connected ....
Verify the boot options are properly set in BIOS, almost all BIOS setups should contain options specifying how your computer boots. For example, most computers should have their boot options setup similar to the below example.
- Floppy drive
- CD drive
- Hard drive

Rest your BIOS to default values. Many BIOS will enable users to reset the values to the default settings. If you've tried the above options without success try resetting the BIOS.
Hard disk drive does not have bootable files on it It is possible that command.com or another bootable file may be missing from the hard disk drive. Follow the below steps to possible resolve your issue.
Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows ME users
Boot from a bootable floppy diskette.
At the A:> type fdisk <press enter>
If you receive a message no fixed disk present, read Hard Disk drive is bad or not connected ....
If you are able to get into fdisk, choose option 4 to display the partition information. In the partition information, if the System is listed as FAT16 or FAT32 then continue to step 5. If you have a message indicating no partitions defined, no information is on your hard disk drive and you will need to create a new partition. See our fdisk page for additional information.
If you see FAT16 or FAT32 in fdisk press the ESC key until back at the A:>
Once at the A:> type, sys c: <press enter> (only do this command if you are using the same operating system that this diskette was created on).
This should return a message 'System Transferred', if you receive bad command or file name and have verified you have typed the command properly, you will need to obtain a bootable diskette with the file sys.com on it.
If system was transferred successfully, reboot the computer and issue should be resolved.
Windows 2000 and Windows XP users
Boot from either your ERD, your bootable Windows CD, or your bootable restore CD.
Once boot attempt to repair Windows. If you're able to repair Windows remove the disks and reboot the computer.
All users
If your operating system is not listed above or the above steps did not resolve your issue you can also try erasing the hard disk drive and starting over.The hard disk drive is bad or not connected properly
If you have attempted all above suggestions and you are still encountering the same issues, verify the connections are properly connected to the computer if the hard drive was recently installed or the computer was moved.
Unfortunately, if all connections are setup properly and all the above recommendations have been attempted, it is likely that the hard disk drive is bad and it will need to be replaced.

What to do with unreadable but recognised hard disk segate 400GB


Your Windows Xp bootable CD should have an option called "Format his file system using FAT32" while installing the OS. Use the option to format it. The only prob is that it creates only a single partiotion. After installing windows you can re-partition using a third party software such as Partition Magic(please note that it will not affect your windows installation as you can first re-size the windows drive to a lower capacity and then partition the un-allocated space.

Hi Henryk14,

There are a few issues that can halt Windows from installing.
1. If your Microsoft Windows CD is a copy & not a valid CD this can happen. (Possible bad copy).
2. You CD-ROM drive is either dirty, (Inside) or it's not reading the disk. (Check the data cable on the cd-rom drive. Make sure it is fully connected). (Swap out the data cable is needed).
3. E-Machine's can & most do have more than one partition on the primary hard disk drive.
Most likely there are two hidden partitions on the drive. If the manufacture placed one of the partitions at the top of the drive, (As many do to stop owners from upgrading their operating system with their own CD). The installation of XP can be halted. You will not see an error message from windows during installation in this case.
(The hidden partition is too small to allow windows to install, 4MB in size is about norm).
One option is to contact the manufacture & buy their upgraded OS CD for your model.
Another would be to erase the drive with a floppy disk. A standard Win98 boot disk will do the job but that is ill advised.
The best way to clean & format the entire drive would be to find the manufacture of the hard disk drive & go to their web site. Download their Dos software to create a bootable floppy disk for Dos. Boot the system with the floppy disk & format the drive. This will remove all the hidden partitions & make the drive whole again.
Most hard disk drive manufactures also provide software to create a bootable CD. This will also clean the drive & set it up for window. (You should back up all your data to CD or a second drive).
Other software can be used to totally clean a hard disk drive. "Darik's Boot And Nuke".
Found here: http://www.dban.org/ (Ideal for tough systems & dreaded blue screens).

Good luck Henryk14!
