My ASUS laptop is stuck at the boot logo, after I tried to install Windows. I deleted a partition, but the program crashed, and I had to shut down the computer. Now it won't get past the boot logo.
I can't get into the BIOS, or the boot logo (esc or F2). When I press CTRL-ALT-DEL, it flashes black and goes back to the boot logo.
I currently have a Dualboot Windows 7/Ubuntu on the laptop, but the partitions are messed up and I want to remove ubuntu, so I have just a windows partition.
How can I get into the boot menu?
Thanks for your help
One option is to do a reset to the whole computer but be warned you WILL LOSE ALL YOUR FILES. now if you still want to go on what you will do is when you turn it on hit the F9 key and it will take you to recovery mode are it should
Testimonial: "I already transferred al my data to my other PC, so it doesn't matter if all data gets lost. The problem is the F9 key does nothing. I also tried taking out the battery and charger and pushing the power button for about 10 seconds, but no effect either."

If you set the bios to boot from USB. Place your USB Bootable stick into the USB socket and boot from it.
Windows will find the hdd and format it before putting Windows on it.
What has happened is the hdd name is missing from the system and it requires initializing before you can see it.
Restart your computer. Press F9 key immediately when the ASUS logo appears. This will start the recovery procedure, including the installation of all the drivers and utilities. Follow the instructions. Your computer will be restored to the factory settings. 1. Recover windows to first partition only. this option will delete only the first partition, allowing you to keep other partitions, and create a new system partition as drive "c". 2. Recover windows to entire HD. This option will delete all partitions from your hard disk drive and create a new system partition as drive "C". 3. Recover windows to entire HD with 2 partition. This option will delete all partitions from your hard drive and create two new partitions "C" (60%) and "D" (40%). Usually, the brand new ASUS notebook computer hard disk is with 2 partitions. So, it is suggested that you select “3. Recover windows to entire HD with 2 partitions”.
Suggest you enter the bios and make a setting change. Open the manual to page 2-24. The M1573 RAID function set this to [Disabled]. (This will stop the bios from loading the RAID controller.) See boot menu page 2-31 section 2.6 Set section 2.6.1 Boot device priority as shown. (The drive with windows installation on it should be in the boot order). You can also unplug either the data cable or power cable of the slave drive to assure it does not boot. If you still receive a blue screen with the primary drive suggest you re-install windows or boot to the windows CD and create a new partition within the free space of the primary drive. Install windows complete including updating. When finished you'll be able to copy you're data to the new windows. Use windows disk manger program (diskmgmt.msc) in the run window to delete the old windows partition. Some programs will need to be reinstalled.

I take it you see the hard drive when you boot to vista cd. doing install can you remove partition and then create new partition format and install vista software. have you tried that if so sounds like your hard drive is working and can delete and reset drive partition index. if your crashing in post then you need to push the tab key when toshiba logo appears should switch showing post BIOS boot on screen all text you should try pressing the setup key as soon as you see the numloc light blink on your keyboard the driver is loaded press f2 then tab key to check post boot.
please let me if this helped you.
Hi gordonal123, installing drivers through safe mode is not recommended. If you want windows to function correctly than do a fresh install of windows. Over writing the Gateway hdd will cause you more grief. Windows registry will go nuts. Link to download the Asus K8V drivers. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us Here is what you need to do. Boot to your windows CD while using the Gateway system & hdd. Create a new partition within the free space of the Gateway hdd. (Follow windows onscreen instructions to create a new partition within the free space of hdd). (This will maintain the current windows function). Restart windows when finished. Windows will create a second partition on the Gateway drive. Go to the Asus link above & download all the drivers for the K8V MB, onto the second partition of the Gateway hdd. Once downloaded & uncompressed into their own folders you can than boot to the windows CD & format the primary partition & install windows fresh onto the formatted partition. When finished you can install the K8V driver still located on the secondary partition. Copy & past these driver folders to your primary partition. Than use windows disk management software to erase / delete the secondary partition. (diskmgmt.msc). When finished you'll have all the drivers for the K8V MB, no need to buy a PCI LAN card & more importantly a fully functioning windows with-out issues.
