Fomratting to original OS


Lenovo doesn't provide restore CDs... and the S10 don't even have CD drive. Since you install XP in new partition, probably Vista is still there? Try using Vista DVD (I assume you are using external CD for S10). Boot with Vista DVD and choose the repair option if available. If not, you may need to go to Lenovo support to get the S10 restored to original state.

I cant get the dell vista os reestore disk to boot up


Use external USB CD/DVD Drive to run your Windows Vista Operating System to Restore Disk.
Maybe your Built-in CD/DVD cannot read or access your OS.

If you don't have this device, you try another Windows Vista OS Disc.
Good luck!

No internal hard disk found


Hi there.
Use the Vista CD to create the new partition, but first you have to delete the old partition first, (the 220GB partition not the 10GB one because that will be the recovery partition).
Get a calculator and work out your new partition, for example 50GB is 50x1024MB so that will be 51200MB.
When you have deleted the 220GB partition select NEW and input your newly worked out partition and carry on from there, to activate the other partition just format it.

Please post back with the results and for anymore help if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

No internal hard disk found during booting when i am going to format


It is possible that the HD has failed completely. However, this is a relatively new laptop, so I would suspect that is not the case. Sometimes the HD will lose contact for one reason or another. This can usually be cured by removing the HD and reinstalling it, which will remove any crud from the contacts.

If the machine is still under warranty, call Dell support. They will walk you through diagnostics to determine the actual problem.
If you're not sure of the warranty status, go here:

Partition


Hi,
The solution to your problem is very simple.
First make two partions of your harddrive, To do so:
-Open up control panel.
-Click open Administrative Tools.
-Click open Computer Managment.
-Then Click on Disk Managment on the right side.
-Choose your main Harddrive, Right click and click Shrink Drive
The amount you Shrink will became your second partions that you can put any OS you want.


After you Have made two partions Install the Vista Os on the second partion(its usually named D:).Soon after the installation is done choose vista from the OS choice menu.
-Log into Vista
-Click on the Drive that has XP installed into and by using the ".exe" files of the software you want to install. Install the software onto vista.
And there you go, now you have:
-Vista N XP on two seperate drives.
-And your vista has the software you wanted.

Please Rate, Thanks

HP laptop XP installation problem


ARUNVK, I used to use a win98se boot disk even on my first SATA drive because I prefer a FAT 32 over a NTFS & reduce my cluster size the 16k.
For the last couple of years Mfg's. have made it easer to use a bootable CD with all the setup utilities and testing software one can need. Suggest you do the same. Go to the drive's Mfg's site & download their disk utility/setup utilitys. Creat a bootable CD. You'll be able to boot into a dos like mode & format to your choosing. If you pick the standard NTFS you'll be stuck with a 4k cluster size but if you use a FAT32 you'll be able to pick your cluster size. Using the CD also helps with IDE drives & SATA's.
Creating more than one partition is just as easy. Also helps with systems the show the blue screen of death. Fix's them as well.

Good Luck & kind regards.
& please vote.
