It seems that you have formated you laptop with CD. It has formated the recovery drives so you need to reinstall your laptop with CD if shipped with the laptop. F11 would not work in this scenario if you have already formated the Laptop with other CD coz whenever you format the drive and create partition with any third party CD it normally delete the Recovery partition from the laptop. If the case is such then you cant get back you old recovery partition. But you can create a recovery disk from the same laptop if you can find... one with any friends etc and then re-image your laptop with that disk. After that all the setting will be back. Or you can contact with SONY support for the same issue they can provide the same disk.
This happens if the harddisk data is corrupted. Hard disk has a data that the computer reads first before going to the operating system. To fix this to to do a debug or do a full format of the hard drive. Try to run a diagnostics first by pressing the F9 upon the HP logo. if it does not report any error run a recovery by pressing the F11 upon the HP logo then choose the SYSTEM RECOVERY. then simply follow the prompts to revive your computer to the original factory default. Do this a couple of times. If this will not work then most likely the recovery partition is deleted or corrupted. If you can still see the HP RECOVERY IMAGE, then go to START > COMPUTER / MY COMPUTER > right click and choose MANAGE > DISK MANAGEMENT > look for the HP RECOVERY IMAGE > right click and choose > SET AS ACTIVE PARTITION, then reboot the computer then simply follow the steps for the recovery.
Unfortunately the Recovery partition could not be reacreated manually. But you can recover it by using the Y410 Recovery Disc but that means reinstalling everything and youll end up with windows vista again. You can reinstall XP but do not delete the partition that usually has 10-15GB of space because that is the hidden partition for the recovery. You can call 18774536686. If your computer is out of warranty, it would only cost you 59$ for the recovery disc
its bugged or so ...ir its missing files that were deleted by the anti-virus... so ...format and reinstall ....be sure that ya format at least the C partition ....cause if ya have a recovery cd ..it will go under the last installation and the problem will reappear
You can Reformat the system and REMOVE all partitions. Windows setup will create a new partition from available drive space. If you need to save your data,You can also use a utility like partition Magic and resize the partition. There is a trial version available at no charge. just google "partition magic"
For the psswords i can recomend to reset them from BIOS but to do that you must first know them. The problem with recovery disks is solvable if you boot from an XP disc and format the C: partition in NTFS file sistem and when it starts copying files to install the windows stop the installation ( F3 or press the power button for more than 4 seconds.. don't worry you will not sustain disk damage... done it myself with the same notebook for a dozen times ) After formatting the partition C: try recovery again and it will work.
NOTE: for the formatting of the partition you must set the HDD mode from AHCI to ATA witch permits the XP setup utility to "see" the HDD. If it is set in AHCI mode the setup utility for windows XP will not detect youre HDD
Hi there. I'm sorry to tell you that when you reformatted the drive you deleted the recovery partition and all the recovery information on it, this is why the recovery disk creator cannot be launched and is giving you an error. Thankfully for you, you created a recovery disk before you wiped the drive so this is your only way of restoring the system so make a back-up copy of the recovery disk you made and keep it safe as the problem cannot be solved because you deleted the recovery partition.
Sounds like either 1) bad disk or 2) bad motherboard. Replacing the harddrive and restoring using the restore cd is valid and will work as long as the disk is as large or larger than your current harddisk - Fortunately it is also the cheaper of the two options.
You may lose access to the free space on a larger harddisk as the restore cd may restore the old partition information as well as the data.
The best thing you can do now will be to obtain a windows Startup disk and use fdisk utility to format.. If you are using a seagate HDD then you can also try seagate disk manager. Another option will be to boot from win XP CD and start the setup.. During the setup it will at some point it will provide you the options 1)format using NTFS 2)FOrmat using FAT 3)Format Using FAT32 From these choose format using FAT32. Thats all it will be formatted.. Afterwards you can use a tool like Partition Magic to resize and create more drives on the HDD.
