Reformat a Disk Drive without an install dsk


Power on your computer and wait for Windows to fully load.

Click the "Start" button and select "Control Panel."


Click "System and Maintenance," scroll down and click "Administrative Tools."

Double-click "Computer Management." If you are asked for permission to perform the action, click "Continue."


Click "Disk Management" on the sidebar. This will give you an overview of the available disks on your computer.


Right-click the "C" drive and select "Format." Click "OK" and the process will begin.


Once the process is finished, you will be unable to use your computer until the operating system has been re-installed.


To do this, you will need to use a Windows Installation Disc or a USB flash drive containing Windows.


hope this helps

Tip

Windows startup does not complete.


Hi.
If The BIOS is showing initial splash screen, and completing POST test correctly, but Windows Startup does not complete, and you are in one of the following situations:

  • You get a black screen with a cursor blinking.
  • You get a black screen with test or command prompt.
  • You have a blue screen with a warning message.
  • Windows keep restarting.
  • Windows is freezing.


Any of the condition described must occur before getting to login screen or to Windows desktop, or the problem is other than the one described here.

If you get a message saying Operative system not found you may also be in same situation. Only in that case the disk may also be physically damaged, and you may have lost your data, or disk may need replacement.


The conditions above usually tell us that the Windows system files needed for Startup are corrupted.
Windows cannot load the files anymore and will hang on with the cursor blinking.
When this happens you need to reinstall the operative system.

To start you can try loading the system in safe mode, by pressing F8 on Startup.

If the computer is starting in safe mode, try doing a system restore to a recent date before the problem started. This will be faster than installing a fresh system, and most of your settings will be preserved.

You may find out that when the system does not load, most computer will not even start in safe mode.

Check also that there is no CD, DVD or floppy inside the computer, also disconnect any connected USB device, apart mouse and keyboard, and attempt starting the computer again.

If all that does not work, then you will need to reinstall Windows.

Installing Windows is not a complicate operation, all you need is the computer recovery disk, or a Windows install disk valid for the licence number printed on the Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity sticker.

If you use a recovery disk, remember to choose partial recovery, so that the original data contained in the hard disk won't be deleted.

Using Windows generic disk you will need to choose Update Recovery if asked, install the system on top of the same directory (eg: C:Windows), and you will also need to choose Leave System File Intact, when asked by Windows setup.
Using a Windows generic disk you may also need to install additional drivers, that usually are available for download from the manufacturer website.
Even choosing a partial recovery , or an update install, some of the installed software may be affected, and may need a fresh setup.
Another way to proceed is installing a copy of windows into a different folder (eg. C:/Windows000), and choosing to leave system file untouched.
This will reinstall system files hosted in root folder, and sometimes may bring back to life the old system.
In that case you will be asked what system to start from Windows boot manager on Startup, your old system will be the second one.

Using this method is better to remove the new installation Startup from boot manager after installing and testing that the old system is back at work. This is done editing the system hidden file Startup.Ini, hosted in root folder. The file is a text file.

If you have important data inside the hard disk, it is always advisable to copy all data onto an external media. Even if the procedures described normally do not delete your data, when doing maintenance on a computer there is always the chance to loose data.
If the computer is not starting because of a system problem, the data can only be recovered using a boot disk, or physically removing the hard disk drive from computer, and connecting it to a different computer (an external enclosure may help).


This same instructions broadly apply to all recent Windows operative system, Windows seven setup is slightly different from the procedure described here.

How do i clean my computer up with the recovery disc?


The procedure is to insert the disk ..and restart and boot from CD ..If the boot order is already set to boot from CD first ..it will prompt you to press any key to start ..or ..you will need to press F11 or f12 to choose from the menu ..either the recovery will start when you choose f11..or if you choose F12 you have to select the boot from disk drive ..and hit enter ..Confirm by pressing any key and will start ..select the complete reinstalling of the operation system ..and if it asks ..select the C drive and format it if it asks ..
If the recovery disk you have does not contain the operation system but just the recovery for the drivers.you need to install the operation system first from a bot-able disk with the operation system on it ..and the procedure is the same ..Insert disk ..select F12 on start to get to the boot menu .select cd /dvd drive ..and hit enter..when asked ..press a key to confirm the action ..and go with the installation progress and follow instructions ..
The steps in both cases will be the loading of the primary files ..after that the agreement with microsoft ..and will show previous OS ..choose not to repair but new installation ..and select a partition ..(same on C drive ) ..and will ask if you want to keep files or replace ..I suggest not to keep anything and erase the drive and format it in NTFS quick ..and go on..It will load the files..for windows..and restart and this time you do not need to press a key ..but let it continue and finish the job ..
Those steps are for installing from os disks..and some of them will not be present in installing from recovery ..With the recovery disk things will go on automatically ..
Let me know if you have questions ..have a nice day !

Trying to load packard bell ,its formated hard drive ,next screen i have c:\ what do i put to continue



The system is trying to boot from the C drive i,e, the HDD, you need to continue after formatting from the CD/DVD.

Presumable it initially booted from the disk and you went through the procedure wizard of telling the computer to install a fresh copy of the operating system deleting any existing operating systems, and you didn't ask it to partition the disk and retain the OS that was originally on the HDD.

After formatting it should continue to install the OS on the drive you specified from the CD/DVD disk.

Start again you have nothing to lose as the HDD is now formatted and all previous information is lost, but this time read the screens that come up carefully.

One final point you did put the disk in then power up the computer didn't you????? not put the disk in and try and re install.

The computer has to be booted from the disk.

On turning on my computer I get the HP screen with three options at the bottom Boot menu Startup menu System recovery When choosing the boot menu or startup menu the computer fails to bring up these...


The hard disk inside the computer had failed and must be replaced.
Since your system had an recovery partition and not a separate recovery disk you must contact HP and order a separate recovery disk. If you have a friend with the exact model of c then you can use its disk, but only if its the EXACT same model.
 This is a very big problem - and at least a basic knowledge of hardware is required to replace the failed hard disk. And some software experience is also needed to reinstall.

My acer aspire revo is asking me to install OS


Is it a new computer?
It has no operating system.
You need to buy a disk drive for it, preferably a dvd drive, which you will use to install the operating system.
Or you can attach an external drive to the usb and install the operating system.

''A disk error has occured'' upon start up


You cannot. (Remove any media from the diskette-drive and from the CD drive, and try again to reboot.)

The message is indicating that the disk-drive containing Windows is *NOT* readable. So, nothing can be read from the disk-drive.

Take the computer, and the original "IBM System Recovery" set of CD-ROMs, to a computer-store, and get them to remove the "dead" disk-drive, and install a new one, and to re-install Windows from the IBM CDs.

Maybe, while Windows itself cannot be read from the "old" disk-drive, the computer-store *MAY* be able to recover your "data" files.

Bios setting problem


This happens because Windows is corrupted.

You need to start the computer with a windows install disk, or a factory recovery disk inside to reinstall the system.

Get a windows install disk and reinstall the system.
