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 have 2 computers one dimension 3000 dell. on the drive is down. the other has no partions built in. is it possible to find the bios chip on the one computer, swap out to the other that has a boot...


it would probably be easier to just swap the hard drives. then when you go to boot, put in an OS install cd (Mac OS X ; Windows XP ; Windows Vista ; Windows 7) and it will walk you through the steps and partition your hard drive for you.

About installation


If you do have some backup on your file, you need to have other Hard Disk Drive to copy all of the files inside.

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!!

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
