If you want to format it you have to reinstall the os . Actually all information of the os is sitting in c drive ... in running time of windows you can't format the c drive .....


To format and reinstall the os get a windows(XP,vista,98) botable cd ...boot from cd ... it will start the setup...... in middle of setup it will ask for the format ......

    the subst command:



    Associates a path with a drive letter.



    SUBST [drive1: [drive2:]path]

    SUBST drive1: /D



    drive1: Specifies a virtual drive to which you want to assign a path.

    [drive2:]path Specifies a physical drive and path you want to assign to

    a virtual drive.

    /D Deletes a substituted (virtual) drive.



    Type SUBST with no parameters to display a list of current virtual drives.





    So:



    subst a: /D



    ...should remove the substituted drives.



    I would ask your friend first, though, why they ran that command. The
    subst command is commonly used for networking purposes, or to run a
    program that "defaults" to a given drive letter to redirect the program
    to using the drive you want it to use. And that's a pretty advanced
    command, so I would check with your friend about why that command was
    used and what, if anything, would happen if you undid that command....














    this is second solution .....

    open disk management and right click on the hard disk ...> properties ...>polices...>select enable write caching on the disk then ok... to remove the removal drives

Acer aspire one 1640Z XP BIOS RECOVERY WON'T READ USB WITH BIOS


if I understood correctly you have the recovery software loaded on a stick flash drive and you want to boot from usb to restore the pc .....There are a few things that you have to know about to do that ...
first you have to go to bios and enable boot from another device ....other than hdd /cd or flopy ... for some elder bios this isnt even a choice ..or ..if it is ,,it will be as a sub options into the hdd...choice ..
another thing that you have to keep in mind ..is that you have to disable the other options to force it boot from this one ...or ....to press f8 on boot and manually choose the usm or the stick name that will appear on boot devices...
the most important thing is that if you already formatted the hdd it does notr have a usb driver loaded and that why willl not see the device ...also the device you are using to boot ...has to be specially formatted to be bootable ....this is made ussualy with a hp format tool ...and it is explained in more than one places on the net ...just look for making a boot-able stick (usb device)
in short ...make sure the sticvk is boot-able ...second the pc ha s teh capability to boot from another device ...and this is a feature that you already enabled like first boot device ...
than things will be easy ...it will ask you to press any key to boot from the usb ...and continue like an installation from the cd ...
if you cannot do it ...I recommend using a cd ..or an image that you will ***** in a virtual cd ...for those that do not have cd drive ( use daemon tool )

Pci slot error


I have the same problem with an Aspire 5100.
I can eliminate any problems with the software, as the problem exist with the hard drive renoved.
It appears after the 'Acer' splash screen and fails as part of the POST.
After reading through various posts I suspect the broadcom wirless card or LAN has failed at board level.
I will try removing them and try again.
Will post back with results.

Asked for format disk when insert CD with existing data on CD drive


There is a small possibility that your lens on the CD Player is dirty. Use a normal CD Lens Cleaner, with no solutions, and run it through 2-3 times to clean the lens. Then re-try the CD in question. If you still have problems, it may be the CD you are using, that may have been formatted wrong when initially created....

Acer Aspire 1640z Format Problem


Jay:

Unless the hidden partitian has been written over or it has been corrupt...

Hit Alt-F10 as soon as you see the Acer logo when booting. If the recovery partitian does not display...then you must purchase an operating system and do it the old fashion way.

Good luck to you my friend.
