    That's a bit of a loaded question. Are you partitioning a desktop or laptop? Is Windows already installed? Is Windows installed on a different drive than the one you're partitioning?

Easy. Just be careful and read everything! Download Partition Logic, burn it to a disk and reboot to it. If using XP your good to go, if your using Vista read the notes they have about it. Hope that helps.

I have a acer aspire laptop having win7 ultimate in it.. last night i do partition of my harddrive and then restart it but it did not restart and there is blinking underscore sign with black screen...


What program did you use to partition the hard drive & why??
The hard drive was already partitioned and had all your data and the operating system on it. You can safely resize the partition using the Disk Manager utility within Windows 7 but if you use a bootable disk or USB flask drive and then delete the old partition and then create a new partition, then your data will no longer be available. There are partition recovery programs available which may help you if you haven't written any data to the new partition but you will to either have a boot disk or remove the hard drive and connect it to another PC.

Hi i made a partition on my hard drive and when i turned my laptop back on i get this message, non system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready can you help please thanks ross


if you create a new partition on your hard drive with anything but partition magic or something similar, the process of creating the partition will wipe all data from the entire hard drive to resize the partition. you will probably need to re-install Windows fresh unless the utility you used just happens to have an undo (not very likely) playing with partition sizes of used drives is not advisable.

Format


How to partition and format the hard disk using the Windows XP Setup program loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); You can use the Windows XP Setup program to partition and format the hard disk. To do this, use the following steps: Step 1: Partition the hard disk loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation');
  1. Insert the Windows XP CD into your CD or DVD drive, or insert the first Windows XP Setup disk into the floppy disk drive, and then restart the computer to start the Windows XP Setup program.

    Note If you are using the Windows XP Setup disks, insert each additional disk when you are prompted, and then press ENTER to continue after you insert each disk.
  2. If you are prompted, select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD or DVD drive.
  3. If your hard disk controller requires a third-party original equipment manufacturer (OEM) driver, press F6 to specify the driver. For more information about how to use F6 to supply a third-party OEM device driver while the Windows Setup program is running, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 314859 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314859/ ) Limited OEM driver support is available with F6 during Windows XP Setup
  4. At the Welcome to Setup page, press ENTER.

    Note If you are using the Setup disks (six bootable disks), the setup prompts you to insert the Windows XP CD.
  5. Press F8 to accept the Windows XP Licensing Agreement.
  6. If an existing Windows XP installation is detected, you are prompted to repair it. To bypass the repair, press ESC.
  7. All existing partitions and non-partitioned spaces are listed for each physical hard disk. Use the ARROW keys to select an existing partition, or create a new partition by selecting the non-partitioned space where you want to create a new partition. You can also press C to create a new partition using non-partitioned space.

    Note If you want to create a partition where one or more partitions already exist, you must first delete the existing partition or partitions, and then create the new partition. You can press D to delete an existing partition, and then press L (or press ENTER, and then press L if it is the System partition) to confirm that you want to delete the partition. Repeat this step for each existing partition that you want to include in the new partition. When all the partitions are deleted, select the remaining non-partitioned space, and then press C to create the new partition.
  8. To create the partition with the maximum size, press ENTER. To specify the partition size, type the size in megabytes (MB) for the new partition, and then press ENTER.
  9. If you want to create additional partitions, repeat steps g. and h.
  10. To format the partition and install Windows XP, go to step 2.

    If you do not want to install Windows XP, press F3 two times to exit the Windows Setup program, and then do not follow the remaining steps in this article.

    To format the partition without installing Windows XP, use a different utility.
Step 2: Format the hard disk and install Windows XP loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation');
  1. Use the ARROW keys to select the partition where you want to install Windows XP, and then press ENTER.
  2. Select the format option that you want to use to format the partition. You can select from the following options:
    • Format the partition by using the NTFS file system (Quick)
    • Format the partition by using the FAT file system (Quick)
    • Format the partition by using the NTFS file system
    • Format the partition by using the FAT file system
    • Leave the current file system intact (no changes)
    Notes
    • If the selected partition is a new partition, the option to leave the current file system intact is not available.
    • If the selected partition is larger than 32 gigabytes (GB), the FAT file system option is not available.
    • If the selected partition is larger than 2 GB, the Windows Setup program uses the FAT32 file system (you must press ENTER to confirm).
    • If the partition is smaller than 2 GB, the Windows Setup program uses the FAT16 file system.
    • If you deleted and created a new System partition, but you are installing Windows XP on a different partition, you are prompted to select a file system for both the System and Startup partitions.
  3. Press ENTER.
  4. After the Windows Setup program formats the partition, follow the instructions that appear on the screen to install Windows XP. After the Windows Setup program is finished and you have restarted the computer, you can use the Disk Management tools in Windows XP to create or format more partitions. For additional information about how to use the Windows XP Disk Management tools to partition and format your hard disk, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 309000 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000/ ) How to use Disk Management to configure basic disks in Windows XP

Gateway MX6455 - AMD Turion 2.0Gb with 1Gb Ram Stops working and goes to black screen after POST. Will not boot into windows. The more I try re-booting, the faster it stops.


If you recently installed and any new program it could be a corrupt driver. Boot to safe mode by hitting F8 and delete it. If you didn't, you will have to remove drivers individually. Failing hardrive is another culprit.

How to install xp in HP Pavilion dv6 1030 us Laptop and how to repartition my C: drive especially I have still 150 GB free space in C drive Please help me in this case Thanks in advance.


get a winxp installer CD, you can repartition your drive on the first part of the winxp installation process. Prepare your drivers for your machine especially the network and USB drivers which you will need to copy and transfer files firstly.
If u meant of installing an additional OS like winxp to your extra space, you need a boot loader to switch between OSes.hope this helps

When you created a partition on the new hard drive, did you make the partition active?
A partition that has not been activated can be formatted and Windows installed, disk check etc. but will not boot up.
You can make the partition by booting up in DOS with either a floppy disk or a boot CD and run the DOS command "fdisk" and navigate to Set the partition active.

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!!

The master boot record maybe be corrupted or virus infected.
To fix the MBR, boot up with your DOS disk and type fdisk /mbr
Then install XP, and delete all partitions and then create a new partition, then do a full NTFS format on the new partition.
