Ex. hard drive will not open windows say windows will not even formate


If windows will not format the hard drive then the HDD is probably bad. Depending on the operating system you're trying to load, if it's Win XP or earlier you can still use DOS to format the drive then try loading windows onto the drive. Windows will want to format the drive again when you load the disk and that's ok because it will format the disk from FAT32 to NTFS. If it still fails then You more than likely have a bad disk that cannot be written to. One other thing you can try is to boot to command prompt and type in sfc /scannow Make sure you have windows inserted in CD drive. This will check your system if Windows is already loaded on the drive but you're having a hard time booting to it. Hope this helps

How to upgrade a toshiba L305 to a 500gb hard without hardware failure error


I'm a bit confused? You are trying to install a HDD with Windows 7 on it from another computer in a Toshiba L305 laptop? If that's correct, it will not work, first, you must format the 500GB SATA HDD, then load the Windows 7 OS to get a clean install. Clarify the question if I am incorrect.

I want to format my c drive with the help of Dos command prompt , installed win 7 ultimate.


Formatting hard drive When booting from a Windows installation CD select the option to install Windows then you (can either delete the existing partition/s then create a new partition then you) can format the hard disk. After formatting the hard disk you can abort the Windows installation if you do not want proceed to install Windows.
You should be able to use the Windows 7 installation CD to delete the existing partition, create a new partition and format the new partition and then install Windows 7.

I Bought a Vaio computer with Windows 7 and installed. I would like to install Windows XP, how can I do it?


Go to BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options change the first boot device to CDROM.
Windows doesn't like to have the same version written over it, or a lesser version written over it..
Forcing the computer to boot from the optical drive, (CD/DVD drive), corrects this.

What is the model number?

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.

I`m unable to install windows 98 in seagate 80 gb ide barracuda hdd


For W98, if you create the bootdisk from within windows, you will need to go here to download the newest version of FDISK.EXE then copy it to the bootdisk, allowing it to overwrite the older version. This way you will have support for larger harddrives.

FDISK LIMITATION WITH 64GB DRIVES:
Why does FDISK not recognize my disk (or RAID array) which is larger than 64GB?

There is a bug in Microsoft's FDISK under Windows 95B, 98 and 98SE that can be corrected by downloading a newer version. See Knowledge Base Article Q263044 for more information.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q263044

When you use Fdisk.exe to partition a hard disk that is larger than 64 GB (64 gigabytes, or 68,719,476,736 bytes) in size, Fdisk does not report the correct size of the hard disk.

The size that Fdisk reports is the full size of the hard disk minus 64 GB. For example, if the physical drive is 70.3 GB (75,484,122,112 bytes) in size, Fdisk reports the drive as being 6.3 GB (6,764,579,840 bytes) in size.

NOTE: This hotfix is not designed for 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA) hard disks, and it is not supported on hard disks larger than 137 GB. However, even if the drive is physically larger than 137 GB, if you create partitions smaller than 137 GB, this FDISK.EXE version will work correctly. (THE FORMAT COMMAND WILL SHOW THE DRIVE AMOUNT IN DOS TO BE OFF THE MARK, BUT WILL BE CORRECT WHEN YOU GET INTO WINDOWS ITSELF)

Direct English Version download:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/Win98/Update/8266R/W98/EN-US/263044USA8.EXE

This package installs the updated Fdisk.exe to the Windows\Command and Windows\Options\Cabs folders, on a computer running Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition. If you are starting a computer from a Windows 98 Startup Disk in order to partition and format the hard disk, you should copy the updated Fdisk.exe from the Windows\Command folder to the Startup Disk, replacing the original Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition version of Fdisk.exe on the Startup Disk.
