SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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!!

Windows 8.1 x64 dvd won't boot on UEFI pre-installed Ubuntu laptop


not sure on this one Ubuntu likes to be installed last after windows is set up. I would think that you would have to blow away the ubuntu partitions by resizing the partitions to one partion. But you would want to be extremely careful not to touch the hidden recovery partition. You could use a program called gparted to see what the partions are and resize the partion. Extreme caution is needed as if you get it wrong you will not be able to undo it. The problem you are experiencing is because the boot loader is ubuntu grub. You will need another computer to download a gparted iso file and then use infrarecorder to make a boot cd. it can be found at http://gparted.org/ see http://www.ehow.com/how_6540931_remove-ubuntu.html

I have an old laptop that partition and hd have been reformatted. I've tried using boot disk but keep getting the message that says, ''save to disk partition not found. So, can't get win98se to load as...


Haven't used win98 for a while so bear with me and this uses DOS COMMANDS too.
If useing restore cd/floppy you have to use a utility from compaq that creates two partitions on hard-drive.
They may have a restore floppy if you need it too.
One for "recovery files" and one for "OS Boot"
AHH, the memories, I still have my 95/98/ME Laptops up and running for older stuff. HP n CQ too.
Restore CD should do it all though.
If no restore CD - have Win98 CD?
if Harddrive partitioned and formated - Just do 1
1. boot from Win98 CD.
Partition n Format
2. Choose boot to DOS (puts u in virtual drive A)
AT PROMPT
3. Type drive letter of CD ( C: D: or E: )
4. Type CD Win98
5. Type Fdisk ( to partion drive)
reboot n do 1 + 2
6. Type format C: ( I do this to ckeck drive for errors)
OR
JUST Boot from CD and follow install instructions.
1 to 6 for if you have problem with Win98 CD setting up Harddrive.

Fujitsu lifebook will not bootup. Message says "operating system not found."


Hello,

Couple of things here, 1. Your os/nos is missing or 2. your boot files have been moved to another partion and the server has not been directed where to look.

Solutions: reinstall the os/nos or find the correct partition which has the boot sector and direct the server to boot from that partion. (This partition should be partition 0.

Good Luck

I HAVE AN EEE PC AND KEEP GETTING AN ERROR MESSAGE SAYING 'EEE PC TRAY UTILITY HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM. ERROR TYPE:BEX P1:AsTRAY.EXE P2:5.1.13018 P3:4886b209 P4:AsTRAY.EXE P5:5.1.1.3018


first make a image of the partition using norton ghost. (you cand find it on a hirens boot cd), next uninstall the tray utility. if it is still the same problem, try reinstalling the operating system. if not reinstall the utility and see if it works. if it doesn't works and you don't want to reinstall the operating system, remake your partion from the image created initially using norton ghost

Factory image recovery on hp error 0x4001100200001005 when useing the recovery disk to go back to factory only loads up to 33%


I had the same problem with the recovery cd getting to 83% and giving me the 0x4001100200001005 error. I did 2 things. I cleaned the disk it was erroring on and also removed the ethernet cable from the adapter. I have been working for 4 days on this and parsing the internet for answers. Finally it worked. I don't know if it was the cleaning of the disk...which did not look dirty, or the unplugging the network cable.
