Your windows system by default really has to be located on The C partition of the drive in order to self load.

Important: It is recommended to take a backup of all the necessary data you have on your C: drive before you format it. Formatting the drive will erase everything on it.

How i can format wyse x90l


You can not format the Windows Drive (referred to as windows partition) while the windows is running.
CAUTION: FORMATTING A PARTITION OR HARD DRIVE WILL RESULT IN ALL THE DATA BEING LOST.
But you can format any other drive or partition, to format a drive or partition other than the windows', open My computer right click on the drive icon and click format, press all the OKs and your drive will be formatted in a while.



To format whole hard drive, even the windows partition,
CAUTION: FORMATTING A DRIVE WILL RESULT IN LOOSING ALL THE DATA AND THE WINDOWS AS WELL.

Now back to business, to do a complete format you need a bootable cd, If you have your recovery disk or even a bootalble windows disk you can format everything.
Lets assume that you have a windows bootable cd, insert the disk while the laptop is starting (make sure that the computer boots up with the cd), let the setup load its files, then follow the instruction until you reach to the point when you can see your hard drives and its asking for formatting press F to format the drive which is highlighted.
Thats it.
Please feel free to ask me any further.

Cannot acess hard disk partitions?


Hi, I hope you are using Windows XP and you have partitioned the disk properly.
Goto Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Computer Management> Disk Management
Now you should see all the disks and partitions in each disk and partition names of each partition. Right click the parition and you get all options to do.
Note: Be careful not to mess with C:  partition. Try to stay away from it.

Reinstall software to use my 160GB freeAgent Go USB


Hi, I am assuming that you are referring to a USB based external hard drive called Free Agent, by Seagate I think.

Which operating system are you using ?

Windows XP has native support for USB, and it should automatically detect the hard drive when you plug it in.
It should NOT require any other software to access the drive.

if not:
1) Check that the HD is powered up
2) Try a different USB cable
3) Try a different USB socket

4) Make sure that the HARD drive is correctly formatted:
i.e. Assuming you are running Windows XP
(Vista should have similar facilities)

Goto to the Control Panel -->
Double click on Administrative Tools
Double click on Computer Management
Look down, under storage,
Click on "Disk Management"
Give it a couple seconds to search for drives,
and to populate the list ...

Check to see if the external disk appears in the list:
It should be partitioned with an EXTENDED partition,
containing a LOGICAL drive, and formatted with NTFS.

If necessary, partition and format the drive, assuming
you have not already done so, and the drive does not
contain any data.

If the drive did previously contain your data, you can
either loose the data and re-format it, or you can hire
a data recovery company to repair the damaged drive.

Some of the following answer assumes a windows operating or possibly DOS based operating system. If your original OS was not Windows or DOS -- there may be different considerations.

1) Did you lose the contents of both partitions?
That depends were they soft or hard partitions.
Soft partitions are created as files inside of other partitions
If that is what you had allocated in the formatted partition
you have lost their data content.
Hard or physical partitions allocated using FDISK and some other utilities the second partition would still exist.

2) Where are/were your system files. Often but not always they appear as the first partition of the master drive on the primary IDE controller all assuming a PC (based on the master slave comments you have indicated.) (sometimes the second when diagnostics are loaded on the first partition)

a) if the partition on the drive you formated contained the system files yes they must be installed to access anything on the disk for the most part. A significant exception may be utilization of a DOS boot diskette might permit DOS access to the other partitions if they are formatted with the FAT file system.

NTFS partitions and possibly FAT32 partitions may not be accessible to all versions of DOS -- there may be some bootable CD's that would allow access to NTFS partitions without installing an operating system.

Question back from the DOS and older version of windows days and even some more modern operating systens in subsequent actions with the disk did you use FDISK or another utility to rewrite the boot blocks to point to a different partition?

Question this was not a dual boot machine was it?-- if so disregard anything that follows.

Question did the machine boot after formatting the partition and before you started moving the drives around? If so the operating system is probably on a drive you have removed from the machine. It needs to be replaced onto the same cable position it was originally located upon -- probably on the Primary IDE cable master position or jumper setting.

If not reinstallation of the operating to the formatted partition is probably the correct next step. Be careful in doing this because if you choose one of the other partitions that were not formatted it could wipe out the data in them based on the installation process chosen.

HDD2188 cannot display its volume


Hi, You might need to format them. Right click on MY COMPUTER, select MANAGE. Go to DISK MANAGEMENT, then to the right pane of the window, go to the usb drive and format each partition. This is only if your hard drive is new and has no data. If it has data, then it's a different problem and solution altogether. Thanks, Lolita
