Order to use backup discs fo reinstallation

I am about to replace my hard drive. I made backup discs a while ago. However, I didn't number the discs so I could keep them in order. Once I am ready to reinstall, does it matter what order i use the discs in. (I know sometimes when discs come with new computer, they are numbered disc 1, disc 2, etc.) Can i attempt to use the backup discs in any order?

Unfortunately you cannot insert the discs in a random order. You will have to try each one to see if it is the correct one... Hope this helps :)

If it's not windows itself then there shouldn't be an issue. the data will go wherever you put it otherwise. as long as it isn't an operating system then you are fine. data is data, no matter where you put it or how it's uploaded.

I would like to erase my hard drive and make my laptop new again how can I do that


Most laptops come with a "recovery" disc or feature which allows you to restore the laptop to its original factory condition. This will often include erasing everything on the hard drive (HDD) and reinstalling the original operating system and included software. In most cases anything you've saved to the HDD will be lost unless you make a backup first.

Another option is to use a Windows installation disc. When the disc is inserted (or if you boot from the disc) you will have the option of reinstalling Windows. You will be warned that all data on the HDD will be lost in the process. If you choose to continue Windows will reformat the HDD and perform a clean installation.

Choosing the option to reinstall Windows from a Windows disc may require an active internet connection or you may need to provide drivers in order for certain laptop hardware to perform correctly or be recognized by Windows. It is also important to choose a version of Windows which your laptop is capable of running.

How to replace hp dv7 3180us hard disc


first you want to verify that it cant be fixed. or new software placed on it. then you want to make sure all your programs that you use have the right serial numbers as some like even the OS for windows on some machine wont RE- authorize as it was a one time install version.With all that behind you and assuming the purpose of the new hard drive is an upgrade to a larger drive not just from a faulty drive here is how you do it. You want to have all the drivers for the motherboard and any discs for programs you plan to install handy. if you dont have the disc or didn't order it then you can from this http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=4125509

Hi, I bought a Seagate GoFlex a couple of days ago and successfully backed up my Mac at home. However, when I went to use the GoFlex on my PC at university, the PC was not reading the goflex. Thanks.


Did you reformat the FreeAgent drive when you backed up the Mac? If you use Time Machine or other backup software for the Mac, you had to reformat the drive. If you want the PC to read the disc, it must be formatted in a FAT32 or NTFS file system. The Mac OS formats discs in the HFS+ (extended hard drive format) system.

Unfortunately, if you reformat the disc to a Windows compatible format, you will lose your current backup. The drive will be as a large media transfer disc but not for the backup images. This site, http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~pcarbo/macnexstar.html , has information on splitting the hard drive into two partitions, one HFS+ and one FAT32. Then you could have your backup on one part of the GoFlex and still transfer files from the Mac to the PC and vice versa.

I hope this helps.

I receive a no operation system message while booting


Buy a new hard disk drive! Use the 2 golden Gateway, Applications, Drivers, & Operating System disc, also known as Restoration DVD to reinstall your Gateway programs & operating system. After that, reinstall your backups.

How much disk space do you need? Why buy a 320 GB HDD if you only use 4 GB? So, keep the bytes down if you don't need them and that will keep the costs down, too!

The Gateway support discs can be had at: www.Gateway.com/Support .

Going to reset my computer. Where can I find the reset button?


If you're trying to restore the Computer to factory settings, then you can use the VAIO Recovery Center that is shipped with the Computer.

NOTES:
  1. Click the Start button, then click Help and Support . NOTE: If the Help and Support link is not available on the Start menu, re-enable the link in the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window.
  2. In the Windows Help and Support window, click Backup & Recovery .
  3. Under Backup & Recovery , under VAIO Recovery Center , click Launch VAIO Recovery Center .
  4. In the VAIO Recovery Center window, under Choose a program , click to select the desired option: NOTES:
    • It is strongly recommended that recovery discs be created to help restore files if the operating system will not start. Recovery discs are bootable and can be used to perform a recovery on a properly functioning hard drive.
    • The Windows Backup and Restore option opens the Backup and Restore Center provided with the Windows Vista® operating system. This provides the ability to save information from the hard drive, such as personal data files, and restore previously backed up data.
    • Computer problems related to hardware can be diagnosed using the VAIO Hardware Diagnostics option.
    • One or more drivers or factory-installed applications may be reinstalled with the Reinstall Programs or Drivers option.
    • The entire (C:) drive can be restored to its original, factory-installed condition by selecting Restore C: Drive .
    • Choosing Restore Complete System will restore the entire (C:) drive, while removing or restoring the Recovery Drive partition. Modifying the size of the hard drive partitions is also an option with this type of recovery. This option requires you to insert Recovery DVDs created using the Create Recovery Discs option.
    • To remove all data from the hard drive, including the operating system, all programs and personal data, choose the Wipe and Erase Data option. This option is provided for the convenience of advanced users who want to install a different operating system, and who want to ensure all data has been removed from the hard drive first. All other users are strongly urged to avoid selecting this option.

Smart failure predicted on hard disk 4


Yes usually that error means that the hard drive is telling the controller card that there are some problems with the drive.

Although the drive may still work, it is highly recommended to replace it with a new drive.

I would replace the drive but keep the old drive just in case, after re-installing Vista you find that there is additional data you did not backup or remember to backup.

Just replace the drive, and if it's a Dell laptop, use the Dell Vista reinstallation DVD, and it will not ask for a keycode to reinstall.

May also want to go to another computer and go to support.dell.com and click Drivers and Downloads. Type the service tag and go ahead and download all drivers needed (i.e. network card, sound card, etc.) so after you reinstall Vista, if there are any drivers missing you will be ready to install them.

Hope this helps.

How to use my recovery discs?


They should be in a bootable disc format and numbered. You will want to either enter the boot menu at start up or set the CD drive to boot before the hard drive in the boot order from the bios or set up. If you go from the boot menu then you will put the disc in the drive and select the CD drive. If you do the boot order, you will need the disc in the drive when you start the machine. If the discs are numbered, start with number one, boot it, and follow the directions.
