Dear one

you have already used the HP Operating CD to set up your hard drive (and formatted your hard drive, and installed XP, and installed the drivers, and really don't want to do that again), you can still “fix” the partitions - as long as you have the space for Quickplay outside the XP partition.

1. Boot from you HP operating system disk.
2. Press ENTER to set up Windows XP
3. Press F8 to accept License Agreement
4. With your XP partition highlighted (it’s usually C:) press Esc.
5. Make sure you have at least 250MB of unpartitioned space after your XP partition. (If you don’t, you probably have to delete XP and start all over.) I had to delete the 204 MB partition I created in the first place.
6. Once you have your XP partition and at least 250 MB of unpartitioned space, press F3 to quit. (Don’t mess with the XP partition!)
7. Press F3 again.
8. Remove your HP operating system disk.
9. If you’re really fast, you can stick your Quickplay disk in before it reboots. Otherwise, let XP load, put in your Quickplay disk, and restart.
10. Quickplay should load successfully.
11. Note that when this is done, Quickplay will actually only use 204 MB of the space after your XP partition. It just needs more than that to actually run I guess.

oke

If you formatted it on another PC, then it would have had Windows and everything else erased. Can you be more specific about what you did?

No boot sector on internal hard drive. No bootable


Hi there,

A boot sector is a sector of a hard disk that contains booting programs stored in the other part of the hard disk. You boot sector might have been deleted or corrupted and you can't logon until you repair or recover the boot sector. To do this you must have your OS cd. Boot from OS cd the follow below steps...

Windows Vista
1. Insert the installation disc.
2. Restart your computer
3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
6. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.

7.

On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.


Boot from you hard disk then you're done!

Windows XP Repairing


XP is a windows based operating system. XP is client OS which file format is Fat32 and NTFS. Some time for user fault, unauthorised operation, improper shutdown, viruses or any other cause may corrupt this file system and it may crash your windows also. Formatting and reloading of windows can solve your problem easily. But maybe there formatting is not possible for important data or for product key. So there repair of OS is only way to recover.

I have facing almost the same problem once. There customer have a confidential file in his system's desktop. Desktop belongs in C: drive where the OS resides. First I tried to recover the data but nothing is possible there. Then I started to repair the Widows. I insert the XP CD in DVD-Rom drive boot from it. Start the windows setup after loading files it ask for a repair (R key) I have ignore it by pressing Enter then the license agreement screen appeared. Then the OS instruct to press F8 to agree with the license and continue setup. After pressing F8 it will find the previous version of OS, if setup found any previous version then it will give you option to repair the OS again. But that day I don't get this option. It shows total disk space of C: drive have remain free space. So that there was not any file to recover the OS.

Then I go to boot the system again but formatting is not possible so after loading files at the first while the first repairing option appeared I have accept this repairing option. This option is from dos repairing option. After pressing "R" while appear the dos screen. Then press Enter to continue. Then I run the command "chkdsk" in C: drive to check the disk. After complete the disk checking and fixing the error I reboot the system again. After that I have Boot the system and after completing the whole process I choose the second repairing option. Then I got the previous version of OS and start to repair the previous OS. It now just loads the file and get started XP after booting. I got success to repair the OS and recover the data.
So it is a secure and easy process of recovery.

Recover data from hard drive 2000 0146 dell m1330


basically if the system is unable to boot up with this hard disk ..than you have to replace it ..and install a windows (preferably same windows edition ) ..and after that using a rack adapter ..attach the hard disk and see if anything can be read from it ..
personally I can not believe that falling from the bed can damage it beyond work capability ..and I think it may be something else..I suggest to check the ram memory ..and the hdd plug ..and all that may be out of place ..and after that try it again ..Also if you do not have any files (important ones ) in C drive ...and such ..try reinstalling it ..and see if it works ..maybe the fall caused it to misread a file and can not boot ..but reinstalling windows without making a format ...will replace them ..(basically choose not to format ..and keep the files ..
In worse case..if it is so damaged than you can not even read it ..you can go to a professional and retrieve the files but will be very expensive ..
so ..First step ...replace hard disk ...(even a second hand one ) ..this way you will know for sure that yours is unreadable ..and you will know what to do ..

Non-system disk or disk error Replace and strike any key when ready


Bad hard drive. The PC can not find an operating system. (e.g. Windows)
If you are lucky, you may be able to recover it by repairing the MBR or Master Boot Record.

If you have Windows NT / 2000 / XP, you can boot from startup floppy disks or CD-ROM, choose repair option during setup, and run Recovery Console. When you are logged on, you can run FIXMBR command to fix MBR.

Or just run Repair Windows from the Windows CD/DVD..

If you boot up on the CD and the hard drive is not recognized then its likely dead and will need to be replaced.

Re: R400 stuck at ThinkPad screen wont boot


Computers always boot from the hard drive.
The Bios on the mother board have a routine that tell it to boot from the Hard Drive, or USB in the BIOs setup.
to look at the BIOS setup, when you turn it on keep pressing the <ctrl><alt><del> keys on your key board, this should let you go into BIOs setup. there you can check which device it the first boot, second boot and third boot.
If your hard disk the boot, it is probably crashed, you will have to take it in to be repaired, and you might need a new hard disk.
in which case the repair shop will have to put in a new hard disk, format it as bootable, then reload the operating system, and any software you might have been using, so take into the shop all cd software disks with the computer to the shop so they can reload all your stuff. If there were any files you had on the disk, they may or maynot be recovered.

Good Luck...

Boot mgr is missing and error code 0xe0ef000e after a fail recovery disc attempt, for a hp pavilion.


0XE0EF000E is an error message and means that the boot sector is corrupt or missing.
Re format the hard drive is the easiest way to recover and then restore your data backups.
Place your Windows install disk in the dvd drive and boot up the laptop. Follow the prompts and if the menu asks if you wish to repair your version of Windows, select that option. It may work depending on how corrupt the system is. You may have to let Windows re format and start again.
