I just had this problem and went to a few forums for answers.
Update your anti-virus program and restart your PC in safe mode by repeatedly pressing the "F8" key upon restarting.
When in safe mode, use your anti-virus program to scan your computer. When the scan is done it should tell you if it found anything that could be bad for your system.
When scan is finished, go to My Computer - Tools - Folder Options - View
When in "View" click on the button that says "show hidden files and folders". Select the "apply" button, then "OK".
Now, go to your infected drive (the one you cannot access) and "right-click" the drive followed by "open".
You should see the hidden folder "Recycler - resycled - Autorun.ini"
Select the files and then press and hold the "shift" and "delete" keys at the same time, then press the "enter" key. Restart your computer, and you're done. You should now be able to access the drive that had a problem.
If you do not see these files then chances are your anti-virus may have already taken care of the virus affecting your computer.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
Pull a downward one finger swipe on the springboard to initiate spotlight. Type the application name to see if the global prefs log has recorded that you have the application installed with a valid owner code signature.
if applications were installed with another appleID and require an update to execute but you are signed into the AppStore with a different appleID, the situation you are describing can occur.
This should apply to other brands and models... the original problem: bad hard disk, need to restore from win 7 image disks however The portage m200 lacks an optical drive and cannot be booted from usb (only options are to boot from LAN or from a specially created SD card).
Solution: you will need a second pc that can boot from an on board or peripheral optical drive. Swap the second pc's hard drive for the one that you are restoring. Now boot the second pc from the restore disk and follow the onscreen instructions. Once completed the pc will try to reboot and you will get an error about how windows couldn't repair start-up. Now power down and swap the hard drive back to the portage. You should now be up and running, much easier than trying to create a boot-able sd image or boot from a PXE server.

PRELOADED APPS MISSING To re-install the Default Applications to your unit please do the following: 1.) Download the file called RecoverApps.zip to your computer from the following website: http://tabeo.support-tablet.com/e2-support 2.) Extract the .zip that you downloaded to your computer. You will need to use an extraction program such as Winzip (http://www.winzip.com/win/en/landing/prodpagewz17.html), Winrar (http://www.winrar.com/), or 7zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) to do this. 3.) Once extracted you should now have a folder called RecoverApps that if opened has a bunch of APK files in it. If you open it and find another RecoverApps folder in it open the second one, that will have the APK Files. 4.) Connect your unit to your computer and open the drive on your computer so you can see all the folders in it. Copy the RecoverApps folder that actually contains the APK Files into the folder on the unit called System. 5.) Once the copy is finished disconnect the unit from the computer and on the unit go to Settings -> About Tablet -> Start Wizard. Confirm you wish to run the Start Wizard. Then turn the unit off and then back on and you will be taken through the Start Wizard. Once completed the Default Applications will be re-installed to the unit.
