You may want to try Active Killdisk to zero out the drive.

this will efectivly delete everything on the drive (FAT tables, MBR, primary & secondary partitions, etc) and leave you with a TOTALY blank hard drive.

try running the restore cds afterwards.

I keep getting a error F3-F100-0004 on my Toshiba lap top L455D-S5976 ....f8,f1, & 0 won't work how can I troubleshoot to fix this error & can I do this without using CD or USB


If you would power up the unit for the first time then you will see that the Win 7 has been already preinstalled and it's ONLY need to finish the setup process...
This will take some time... however... after the Win 7 installation you can find an preinstalled user manual... most people don't read this and this is a big mistake...
In user manual you can find all the details which you have mention here in the posting

> 1) There is no DVD media with Windows 7 recovery.
There is an HDD recovery option available which allows you to recover the unit without the recovery disk... but you can also create an own recovery disk using the preinstalled tool called Toshiba recovery disk creator!

> 2) During the install process you MUST follow all standard options (no extra partitions) if you want to be able to use the recovery partition on the hard drive every again.
As far as I know Toshiba preinstalled Win 7 is an image and does not allow to change the partitions... you can change this only if you use the Microsoft Win 7 disk and this should be clear...

However, the recovery disk should be created ALWAYS as because there is always an risk that something would go wrong with an HDD or partition...

With reocvery disk you are always on the safe side

You can create a Dual Boot in ur machine....

You need to re-format your disk, back up all critical data in your disk....
once done...boot with XP disk in CD drive....
after format, create multiple partitions....C: , D: , E: etc as per your preference
install XP in C:
once done...start PC and let the machine boot from C: XP...once you get Desktop in XP
install Win7 in D: or E: as prefered....once done..
in the startup screen you will get these 2 options
1 load earlier version of Windows
2 Windows 7

How can i upgrade my os to windows 7? currently i'm on xp,thanks.

well win 7 is good. But I will counsel u not to remove XP because it's tooooo good & has high compatibility.

However if u really want to remove ur XP (bad idea) , therefore burn ur recovery DVD before proceeding. U will do it by acer recovery prog & follow some setup instructions & burn that DVD. After that backup ur data from my docs etc, then u need an original win7 to format & install it. After that install drivers from acer support website.
However if u r not satisfied wiz ur win7 later 4 some reasons, put ur acer recovery DVD that u created and restore ur netbook to factory defaults.

Full Hard drive

you can merge to partitions on a single disk, although this should be one of your last resorts. when two partitions are created on a single drive the OS recognizes the two partitions as two seperate drives. From win xp pro, you can access all the data on the partition with xp home platform. the second partition will take up close to a gig of space that could be used. the simplest way would be to creat shortcuts to the programs you want in the partition for xp pro. then right click my computer> properties> advanced> start up and recovery settings> select win xp as the default OS and deselect the box marked "time to display operating systems"

this will stop that annoying 30 sec pause that you get when you start your computer asking which OS you want to run.

or if you seriously want to merge the two, here is a link with a download that will this file and creat an disk to insert into the disk drive and restart to load from the disk

the only thing is that if you write over or delete files that those programs need to run smoothly, you will have to reinstall them completely. in which case you would be just as well off to back up your info and do a clean install. i trust you will be able to determin which solution is best for you needs.
Personally if i had programs i wanted to save, i would take the first option and just have two partitions

My computer logs on then right back off i may have deleted some files

That fix I gave you is very specific, you must use an original Windows install CD that matches your version of XP, in other words it must be XPHome, XPHome SP1 or XPHome SP2 just as it must be XPPro, XPProSP1 or XPPro SP2.
You can use a disk that is not yours but the reason it must match exactly is at some point you will be asked to type in the COA key(sticker on the side of your case) and if the CD and COA sticker don't match it will stop there and go no further.
If you have a friend with the same version on CD you can use their copy just to do the install.
I am guessing that your computer was bought in a store and is a known brand like Compaq, Gateway or Emachines.
If this is the case you will have what is known as a recovery partition on your harddrive, if you instigate the recovery procedure you will wipe your computer clean and it will revert to as it was when you bought it, BUT, you will lose all your personal files.
IF this is the case let me know because there are ways to recover your personal files before using the recovery procedure.
If this is too much information for you please let me know, leave a comment here, contact me by email or phone, let me know and I can give you contact details.
The problem you are having I deal with everyday, I am surrounded by Uni students who seem to be able to break their computers every other day.
