Before you install the new motherboard make sure you have all of Windows updates installed on the hard drive. Microsoft is working hard to include many new devices all the time. You should have no problem booting into Vista after the motherboard is intalled and your motherboard should come with a driver disk to install any drivers that Vista may miss.

HP Pavilion TX1000 Series with new 500 gb hdd unable to install windows 7, after partitions on hdd, it disappears, and unable to install os


not sure what "after partitions" means. (ah, at that point in install)
dual booting?
HP disk set
or Microsoft set.?
tell what attempting and where stuck exactly.
what screen , and what error exactly.?
new 500, new in box, new to your or new for an APPLE.
if new, really new it has mfg codes on box for any special pre-formatting...

i bet the new disk is pre-formatted. (or really not new)
seen many new disk in box with antistatic bag breached.
bingo , not really new.
what disk ,? Seagate (best)



windoz hates that, (setup.exe running)
erase the new 500
3 ways.(lots really)
1: put new 500 , as a 2nd HDD in PC #2,
2: with disk-manger delete all partitions on it. its now ready.

A: using boot windows, PE disk, do same in this PC.
B: using boot cd, boot and go to repair mode,(first screen)
then using CMD prompt mode, use DIskpart, to do that.
C: using any bood Linux, live CD same PC, run pparted and erase the partitions.
I can go more, but stop.

All windows install disk, cept w10?>
will erase any windows partitions (if you force it)
but will not do it if the format is ALIEN to MS.
Alien means not fat 16 , Fat 32/ NTFS,
Alien means Apple or other 100s of systems alien to MX.
on windows 10, it will balk with any data there what so ever.
protecting the NOOBs. cure is above.

I've updated the BIOS but still can not get the mother board to consistantly recognize a new 1T Hard drive. It works once, but when I reboot it corrupts the Windows XP and the recovery partition.


Can you temporarily attach the "new" disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some other computer?
Then, write some files onto the disk-drive, restart the computer, and see if the files are corrupted.
If they are, then the disk-drive is defective, and can easily be replaced, under warranty,
either from where you bought it, or directly from the manufacturer.

If the files are OK, then it's your motherboard that is the problem.

Have deleted vista off toshiba satelite s2276, deleted all partitions, repartitioned to single large drive, formatted, booted from floppy, win 98 se setup started and working until installing drivers then...


If your system came with Vista pre-installed it is likely there are no XP or eariler drivers available for it, in which case you will have to stick with Vista or Windows 7.

I bought an emachines computer about a year ago with vista home. My hard drive died, how do I install vista on a new drive, I have no install disk for vista.


You'll need to contact the manufacturer.  After they confirm the product serial # (you should write down both the product number and Microsoft license # before you call) they will send out a recovery disk (they will probably charge you for them).  If the old hard drive is still installed, you can attempt a recovery by booting and hitting the ALT key while tapping the F10 key repeatedly to initiate the recovery mode which is stored in a partition on the hard drive.  The partition is probably still good although the "C" drive is no good.

Cannot reformat computer; no partition


the H drive is the manufacturer restore drive..where the factory setting, Driver and OS are installed ..since you deleted the drive and wanted to install new vista.

Can't get NEC Litepad to recognize new Toshiba 1.8" MK2004GAL


I've read on other web forums that the recover disk only works with the original drive partiions. There's a hidden partition on the original drive that the recover disk uses to install the OS (maybe other software too). You'll need to clone/copy the original disk partitions to the new hard drives and then you'll be able to use the recovery disk.
