Partioning is a risky venture, u might need to replace the hd or install windows on a external hd and then use that to undo the partition to save the internal drive

Ok, unfortunately, even though, you had two partitions they were both on the same Physical drive, now you cannot "Format & Partition" without breaking the install, as the Win 7 is the "Boss" and when you formatted you have wiped out all you boot track information, You maybe have a shot, if you get a Win 7 install disk, and boot off of it, then ask it to repair your "Boot Sector" this may allow you to Boot into Win 7,if you are lucky. Then you can use as normal. But if you cannot do that, you will have to boot from a Win 7 or Vista or whatever OS you wish to install,and follow the instructions, and do a complete reinstall of the OS. If you wish more than one partition, in the setup, it allows you to choose the size of your drive, so simply do all that, at that time.

I have a hdd freeagent goflex 500 giga i formated my hdd after that i didint detect my hdd . please help me


First of all, check it with partition magic 8 and reformat if the partitions show in this software. And secondly, try to connect with another PC or it may the problem with your data cable but its chances are very low.

Please try with my above two options at least I assure you that your problem will resolve.

you can contact me for further more details

My laptop is aspire 4315...b4 my partition in laptop is 2 w/c is drive c and d.now i change my internal hardisk,my partition is only one..my question is how to make a 2 partition just like mine b4?dri


New/ Fresh harddisk only has 1 partition. If you wish to make another partition from installed hdd, you may need partition manager software to do the task. Lots of partition manager on the web. Just google a free one. Try also Easeus partition manager. is a free software for partitioning. Resizing an hdd is simply using partition managers. You can do drive letter changing, format and volume naming.

You can also do resizing during installation of your OS.
Refer to your nearest technician for tech support.
