Partition 320gb hard disk xp


If you remove the hard drive from the computer and convert it into a desktop hard drive you would have to go into the bios settings and change the boot-up order from dvd or hard drive to usb. Check first that your computer can actually BOOT from usb (look in the bios settings to see if this option is listed). Depending on the age of the computer you may not have the boot from usb option.
I don't use Mac. Never used one. However, I do use Linux. On a partitioned hard drive Linux can 'see' into Windows and you can transfer things from Windows into Linux. However, Windows can't 'see' into Linux at all. Windows knows that the linux partition is there but just can't access it. This is normal.
It would appear that your computer is more or less doing the same, for whatever reason, even though it was working fine a while ago.
Maybe Linux would be able to access the Mac side of things in your computer? I don't honestly know. But it would be able to access the Windows 7 side of things. Why not try a 4th partition with Linux on?
Linux Ubuntu is a free download. Download the image, burn it to dvd and then restart your computer. It will give you the option of either using the entire hard drive for installation, or putting it in its own partition. You can also install Ubuntu on a usb pen and boot your computer from that (if you have the boot from usb in your bios settings). More information and download is available at http://www.cavalrystorage.com/download.aspx
It may be the actual usb port that is worn, not the cable. The front ports on my desktop are so worn as to be unuseable

I want to turn a memory stick into hard drive. How can i do that?


you will need usb data drive at least 4 - 8 gb

Download the GParted Live utility and the HP USB Format Tool via the links in Resources.

http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=5757&file=15&evp=fb0a8fee133295405b5af3205e8d2424

Insert your USB stick into the computer. Run HP USB Format Tool. Select your USB stick and then choose the FAT or FAT32 format options. Click "Start."


Extract the files from the GParted Live zip file. Select the USB stick as the destination.


Open a file browser and navigate to the USB stick. Select "utils" > "win32" > "makeboot.bat." Double click on "makeboot.bat." Enter "Y" when prompted.


Power off your computer leaving the USB stick inserted.


Connect your portable hard drive to another USB port.

Power on the computer and quickly press "F8" through "F12" to access your boot menu.


Check your computer or motherboard manual for the exact keystroke.

Select the USB stick as your boot source and press "Enter." Allow the Gparted GUI to start.


Select the external portable hard disk drive. Click "Partition" on the menu bar.

Hover over "Format to" and select "NTSF."


If you are unable to create or format the partition, select delete partition.

This will erase all data on the external hard drive. Confirm partition deletion. Select the external drive again. Click "Partition" and hover over "Format to" then select "NTSF."


Select the external hard disk drive again. Click "Partition" on the menu bar and then "Manage Flags." Check the box next to "Boot." Save and apply changes to the drive.

Power off your computer and remove the USB stick.


Install the OS


Insert or plug your OS installer, usually a DVD, CD or USB thumb drive, into the computer. Power on the computer and access the boot manager again.


Select the source containing your OS installer and press "Enter."

Enter your personalization and registration information if required.


When prompted, specify the portable hard drive as the install directory.

Begin the installation normally.


Restart the computer when prompted and access the boot menu again. Select the external hard drive as your boot source and press "Enter" to ensure the installation succeeded.


Use this process to boot from your portable drive on any computer.


hope this helps

I have multipe bootable partitions and want each one to be the c: drive


In order to do that the multiple partitions must become one partition for c drive, that is why the computer labels partitions so it can identifty what the user requires, so the only choice is reconfigure your hard drive for the single partition for faster access.

I have restored BIOS defaults and believe in doing so moved OS to D: and recovery to C: so now can't access Recovery by pressing F11 on boot. I think this is because I've messed about. Any help...


Hello,
Can you still get into windows on the system? If you can, there is a chance you can force the recovery partition to boot. What you do is go into the control panel and select Administrative Tools / Computer Management. Under Storage select Disk Management. Now highlight the recovery partition and right click it. (Recovery Partitions usually are no more then 10GB in size and may have no Drive letter associated with them, and may be labeled as hidden or "unknown") Select Mark Partition as Active.
If you can not get into windows and would still like to try marking the recovery partition as active then reefer to this link for a couple alternative options (requires downloading a boot CD) http://thpc.info/how/make_active.html#gpart
Now reboot the PC and press F11 or F10, F12 etc.., which ever command is supposed to get you into the recovery mode. In most cases this should now work.
Regards, Chris

How to reboot my gateway nv53 laptop to factory without a cd bought this laptop used starting to have problems so i want to erase everything and make it like new


Hi.

The laptop may have a hidden recovery partion which you can access from boot up. Turn the laptop off and then restart it. When you see the Gateway logo hold down Alt and repeatedly press the F10 key. From there follow the on-screen instructions to restore the laptop to factory defaults, it should take about half an hour but could be longer.

Remember to back up any data that you want before you restore the system.

If you can't access the recovery partition then you can use Windows to do it for you. Click on the Start Menu> All Programs>Gateway and then Gateway Recovery Management. In the Gateway Recovery window click on Restore and then select Restore System to factory default and follow the on-screen instruction. The computer will restart and proceed with the restore.




Regards.

Windows doesn't recognize recovery partition after os reinstall


The issue you are having involves using multiple systems,...If your emachine came with vistan and you installed xp, you voided your warranty status...However remove your dual boot and stick to vista if you wanna keep your restore partition working properly.....On a side note theres usually conflict with running OEM OS's on dual boot...typically it doesnt work and if it does it doesnt work like you want it to! so here is what you can do..Call Emachine up and fib to them a bit (just alittle) tell them that you cought a nasty bug and it messed with your restore partition and now you cant restore your pc....request the factory programing discs (if you ask nicely they'll hook you up 99.99% of the time) you get the discs so you can reprogram the pc to factory spec if you ever wanted to. Now use a retail version of vista and a retail version of xp. and create your dual boot, feel free to remove your restore partition if you want (cause you have the factory programing discs if you wanna go back to stock stuff YAY) I hope this helps!
