If you are comfortable in booting the system in dos mode and running dos commands, The hard disk can formated through it. If not then you can download a Partition Manager software (trail version link ) Using which you redistribute the data into different drives or Add/delete drives.

Partion of c and d for a 100 gb dell inspiron recomended portion


Why not just use the totals disk as one big partition? It's much easier and most times people fill up the c partition while the d partition sits there empty.

It would serve you better to have one big contiguous partition.

Tell me the bios password for fujitsu 7220NU5/B


You will not be able to clear the bios password.

You will need to generate an MSDOS boot Floppy Disk there are a number of sites online that can show you how to do this.

This disk should also have FDISK on it.

Insert the disk and start the PC, it should boot up from the floppy. Now run FDISK and clear all partitions on the Hard drive. DO NOT make new partitions.

Remove the floppy disk. Insert the boot CDROM and restart the PC.

as there is now no boot partion on the hard drive the system should boot from the third device the CDRom.

Continue to re- install the system as normal

to back up your documents from the hard disk you need to have an another working computer connect the hard disk to the working computer as slave if its SATA hard disk no need for making it slave connect it to any SATA port in your motherboard and switch on the computer then select the boot menu make sure the first boot must be the hard disk on your computer not the one attached by you after booting from the original hard disk wait till windows scree come then right click my computer then click manage then click disk management there you will see the both drive partion then right click the partion and click open and you will see the details in the hard disk copy the important document to the hard disk or to the cd or external hard disk

Hard disk


Sound like you wrote over "d" drive partition when you restored the system. Get the program partition magic and you can recover the lost partition. Hope this helps you.tom

I want to format the system


well you can use a bootable windows xp disk or actually any bootable windows or dos based operation system,go into your bios and make sure it is set to boot from CD.the rest is kinda self explaing..If you use a dos disk you'll have to Fdisk it or partion the hard drive.then format.if you use a XP cd its really self explaing.Just follow the on screen prompts and go like your reinstalling,When it ask you if you want to delete the partion and yes,then it will ask you to create a partion and yes or type C to create, then it will prompt you to format disk either quick or full.. Always choice full never quick.

You can Reformat the system and REMOVE all partitions. Windows setup will create a new partition from available drive space. If you need to save your data,You can also use a utility like partition Magic and resize the partition. There is a trial version available at no charge. just google "partition magic"

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!!

Acer boots from xp


take it back to store. basically a hidden, but unremovable partition is causing the xp bootup. It happened to me aswell. They will probably give you a replacement as it is an unfixable problem. Even with new hard drive didnt fix it. Sorry about that.
