You have to recreate a new partition for that. Go to control panel > Administrative tools > computer management > disk management. Right click the missing partition and click create.

another shortcut is to click start then run. type in compmgmt.msc. press ok. then again disk managemen. right click the missing partition or in this case your 2nd hard drive then create partition.

Did you physically install another hard drive? if so set the jumpers to cable select if this does not work try make drive c the master and drive d the slave.
if you havent physically installed another drive then the d drive was only a partition so c drive is all there is.
hope this helps.

Uninstall os linux ubuntu 13.10 from my laptop


Are you dual booting? Windows and Ubuntu? What version of Windows? You maybe able to reclaim the space by using the Disk Management (right click "My Computer" select Manage then select Disk Management). In there you will see NTFS for your Windows partitions, and something like Unknown for the linux ones, you can then delete the linux partition and possibly extend your NTFS partition to use the free space (depending on version of windows).
If this is a standalone Ubuntu install, you should be able to just use the installer disk for another OS and boot it to reformat the drive.
good luck!

Run Linux from a USB Hard Drive


Running linux from a USB hard drive is a great way to install Linux without affecting your Windows hard drive that is already on your computer!

First of all you will need to download the Linux operating system of choice. For me, I use Ubuntu Linux. You can download the ISO from the Ubuntu website.

Once you download the ISO image, you will need to burn it to a CD. Once this is done it is time to start installing!

*NOTE - I would remove the windows hard drive prior to installing. That was I can make sure I don't accidentally overwrite my Windows partition! You can put your hard drive back in the computer when you are done installing.

Place the CD/DVD into your drive and shut down your computer. Plug in your portable USB hard drive and turn the computer on. If your computer doesn't say "please press any key to boot from CD" then you will need to change your BIOS settings to boot from CD before booting from Hard drive.

Once the CD drive boots up you will be given the option to run Linux or to install it. Choose install, follow the prompts for networking/computer name etc and make sure you don't install it on your Windows hard drive partition!

Once Linux is installed on the portable hard drive all you will need to do is make sure you can boot your computer from a USB hard drive. This is done in the BIOS settings to choose your boot order.

Factory Restore


Try F9 during boot.. I doubt you repartitioned that small partition when you reformatted the main partition of the drive. Then again, the F9 function might not work anymore, even though the partition is still intact.. From Asus Support:
Using the Recovery Partition(on selected models)
1. Press < F9 > during bootup.
2. Press [Enter] to select Windows Setup [EMS Enabled].
3. Select the language you want to recover and click Next.
4. Read the ASUS Preload Wizard messages and click Next.
5. Select a partition option and click Next. Partition options:
Recover Windows to first partition only.
This option deletes only the first partition and allows you to keep other partitions, and to create a new system partition as drive "C".
Recover Windows to entire HD.
This option deletes all partitions from your hard disk drive and creates a new system partition as drive "C".
Recover Windows to entire HD with two partitions.
This option deletes all partitions from your hard drive and creates two new partitions "C" (25%) and "D" (75%).
6. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the recovery process.

I will ask if i can download windows 7 on linux acer aspire 4738?there will be a problem?


there won't be any problem as far as Windows and Linux, but this is a fairly involved procedure.You'll first need to create a Windows partition on your hard disk in NTFS file system format. Otherwise,Windows might overwrite / erase your linux installation when Windows 7 installs.
make the windows partition the "Primary" or "Boot" partition.
When Windows 7 installs, it may ask if you want to delete the linux partition.Answer "NO" to this.
The next concern is which operating system will boot by default,Windows or Linux.
I had no problem doing this with Windows Vista, and whe Vista booted,it listed a choice of operating systems to boot,and I would select either Windows Vista or Ubuntu Linux.

Hello i have compaq evo d510 and


You need to partition your Hard drive to however much you want reserved for the Linux OS. You need to get a live CD of the Linux distribution you want and after you have partitioned your Hard drive, you need to boot from the live CD and install Linux onto the Partitioned part of the hard drive. DO NOT install Linux onto the regular partition, this will mess up your current operating system

How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

I HAD WINDOWS ON MY ASUS EEE900. I HAVE RE-INSTALLED THE LINUX FROM THE BOOT DISC SUPPLIED WITH THE MACHINE IT LOADS OK AND THE MACHINE WORKS BUT IT WONT SHOW THE SECOND 16 GIG DRIVE. WHEN I GO INTO...


You should first (with or from a Windows CD) delete all partitions on all drives .... NON-DOS Partitions etc before you do the LINUX installation. The drives must be like when they were without any format or partition from the factory. Then only will the drive (all drives) be visible for linux to format with it's own information..

Cant install xp on my maxtor SATA 6V160E0 UDMA6


*If you have access to another computer with a cd burner*

One way is to download the universal boot cd, boot a linux rescue disk image from it and use fdisk to remove all partitions.
This way the disk will be seen by windows setup again.

This is a silly bug in windows setup i've discovered a long time ago. When it does not understand the partitions on a disc it just hangs during the setup screen.

Download the iso image from http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html then burn the iso image to a blank cd. Put it in your dead machine's cd drive and boot from it. Then choose one of the linux boot options.

When linux is up and running type fdisk ENTER
Then press p and a list of partitions comes up

Press d (delete) and then the number you see after /dev/hda etc.

Do this for every partition you see listed or just for
the first if there is data on the second/third/etc..

Press w (write) q (quit) and reboot with the windows cd in place.

p.s. This does irreversably remove
partitions and data on the disk!
