take it back to store. basically a hidden, but unremovable partition is causing the xp bootup. It happened to me aswell. They will probably give you a replacement as it is an unfixable problem. Even with new hard drive didnt fix it. Sorry about that.
I have been informed by the VISTAHEAD admin. that vista can not be partitioned by more than 4 parts.
I used the shrink function available in the Vista computer manger , rename the DVD drive label, and labeling the new partitions, then format them as NTFS, then reboot twise for taking the configuration setup and every thing is o.K. without the need for the partition magic.
Now i have only 4 patitions. But didn't know why is this limit?
Beside that i read that the partition magic v8.0 cannt partiton the vista O.S main drive.
My guess is that when installing XP the option to format using NTFS was accepted. You should get a (Windows 98) DOS start floppy/CD and re-partion and format the drive before booting Linux install from CD/DVD
Unless I am mistaken, the D drive or partition is the partition that contains the restore feature for yor laptop. This may or may not be hidden system files. As far as the available free space on your C drive, you WILL need to either delete files and/or backup and delete files. Image files, music files, cookies temp files take up a lot of disk space. Try this and I think you will find more free space. BPCS
If your Wundows vista is a full install program you should have deleted and created the partion then formatted the new partition before installing windows vista. Try this again if you hard drive is stuffed you will need a new one Im afraid but windows vista will tell you this before it installs itself.
1. find a windows start up disk and reformat your hard drive.
2. Use a Windows CD (Genuine) and start your system from the CD and follow the prompts.
3. Using pirated Windows will cause all kinds of problems with updates, etc.
4. Use a GENUINE Windows CD and you'll be a lot happier.
