How do i do a factory reset on my Gemini D7


The Gemini tablet line performs factory resets and firmware updates with an SD card. Performing a factory reset requires writing files to an SD card with a computer, then starting up the tablet with the SD card present in it. Be aware that it will erase all data on the tablet, but with it in a boot loop, that may be a moot point.

Knowing the specific model number of your tablet is critical. Flashing the incorrect information can cause worse problems than you are encountering now. Rather than send you to the D7 GEM7007 page, I will give you the general page that leads to all the possible tablet results and directions. Look for the link that matches the Model Number, not just the name.

Factory Reset Original Firmware ROM Image Flashing Instructions

You will most likely need:
An SD card appropriate for the tablet (SD, MicroSD, Etc)
A reader for the card for your computer (Attached reader will handle SD and MicroSD)
The ability to get the Tablet to completely turn off to start the process.

The first two can be purchased. The last one is up to whether the tablet has a hardware fault. If the tablet has any kind of broken hardware inside it (wear and tear, aging, or damage) the process may not work. In the event of hardware failure, replacement under warranty or without warranty may be the best solution.

How do i use recovery cd's if i have no cd rom drive? i have an external cd/dvd drive plugged into usb port but the fujitsu 1510d lifebook does not recognise it? thanks dave


When you boot your computer, start up your BIOS, then under the boot menu, make sure USB is listed as the 1st option.

To log into your BIOS, press the "Boot Option" key. It might be F1, F2 or Delete

Hi, 1. How to transfer/copy bootable XP files onto SD card and then boot up Toshiba Portege M205 from the SD card? 2. Is it possible to made an image of my Windows XP CD on SD card? Regards Tad


Requirements

  • PC running Windows XP/2000 with a CD/DVD burner.
  • USB Flashdrive (Or some way to transfer files to the 3epc once Windows is installed)
  • SD Card, a fast SDHC is recommended of at least 2GB.
  • XP3eSD Utility
  • Hitachi Microdrive Filter Drivers
  • Partedmagic (or another bootable CD with disk cloning software)
  • Windows XP CD (SP2 Only Tested, may work with others)
  • Asus Eee PC (Of course!!)
Instructions:
  1. Copy all files from your XP Install CD to a folder on your Hard Drive
  2. Download the XP3eSD utility and run it to create a new install CD capable of installing Windows to boot off the SD card reader
  3. Boot your 3epc from the CD made in step 2
  4. Install Windows onto a FAT partition, deleting all the existing partitions
  5. When windows boots for the first time turn off the swap file, system restore, and the screensaver.
  6. Then stick your USB thumb drive into the EEE with the Hitachi Microdrive Filter.
  7. Next copy the files from your thumb drive to the desktop and then properly remove the thumb drive.
  8. Unzip the microdrive files to a folder on the desktop. And Insert your SDHC Card into the EEE.
  9. You need to then Hit Start go to run, and type regedit. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USBSTOR\
    Inside that you should find a directory called something like Disk&Ven_USB2.0&Prod_CardReader_SD0&Rev_0100. Open it. Inside that you should find another directory wich is just a bunch of numbers. Open it. In the right pane you should see a key called "Hardware ID" Right click on it, and select modify. It should list about 7 lines of text. Copy ONLY the first line to the clipboard. Hit cancel, close regedit.
  10. Open cfadisk.inf in the directory you unzipped the microdrive filter to. Edit the section called [cfadisk_device] so that rather than containing 11 lines, just have one line. The line begins with: %MicroDrive_devdesc% = cfadisk_install,
    After the comma, hit ctrl V to paste what you coppied from the registry into the file then save the file.
  11. Go to Device manager. Under disk drives, you should see SiliconMotion and USB2.0 Card Reader. Right click on the card reader and click update driver. Direct the driver updater window to the Hitachi driver you just edited. It won't detect the driver automatically, you have to specifty that your supplying the disk for the hardware and force it to use the driver.
  12. Reboot using the Partedmagic CD or USB Flashdrive, Download it here
  13. Create a FAT32 partition on the SD card, same size as the one on the SSD in your 3epc
  14. Use 'fdisk -l' to find out the partition names of your SSD and SD.
  15. Type this command into a prompt: 'dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/dev/sdb1' When it finishes (it will take some time) type this command: 'dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=512 count=1' (Note: If fdisk reported your SSD and SD as different than sda and sdb respectively, you must change that in the dd commands, if unsure ask in the support forums)
  16. When it finishes the task is complete, reboot and select to boot from the card reader
  17. Re-image the SSD of your 3epc with your restore DVD or USB.

Fujitsu Lifebook P1120 Won't Boot To CD\DVD


Fujitsu seems to have secretly added a Hardware black list for Booting USB DVD-rw.CD-rw drives.

I have a Stylistic ST5032D slate.

Your either going to have to buy fujitsu's over priced external drive or buy fujitsu's over priced dock.

Or What I do is Bought WinImage or any other software that allows writing a ISO image to USB flash drive, this should almost always work.

I had to install Windows 7 on my tablet this way.

Choose your poison.

Good Luck.

Install new os on motion le 1600


You can use an external USB drive, either CD or DVD dependent on your OS media.

I used a Phillips drive, with external power supply, to restore to factory settings using their restore CDs. I also installed Windows Vista Ultimate from DVD, without issues :)

Boot up problem


NOTE: Ususally when computers DO NOT find any startup information on the SELECTED DRIVE (like when you click a key) it goes to the default drive.
WHICH IS YOUR HARD DRIVE.
Meaning it is probably your Harddrive is broken, or your connection from hard drive to motherboard is broken

Burn a Live CD bootdisk of some linux distribution
liek Slax, google it.
Burn it to a bootable CD and put it into your drive, then select to boot from it.
If it boots only using your CD ROM drive, if that works then its probably not your BIOS/rest of computer, which is good.

And while in the live cd, you can see your harddrive and see files, that means its not broken its just your connection to it....either way im guessing youll have to send it in.
