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.

By deleting the windows partition, you may have deleted the windows compatibility. You can try and reformat a partition of the drive to a windows FAT32 I believe, but you may lose your other data.

How to reformat my MSI notebook?


You need to have an valid Operating System installer CD/DVD. This could be a Windows or Linux installer or whatever Operating System that you prefer.

  1. Turn your laptop on.
  2. Open the CD drive and load the CD Installer.
  3. Reset your laptop to manually reboot it. If you loaded the CD fast, this step is no longer required.
  4. The setup program will then load. Follow the onscreen procedure.
  5. At the point of selecting the hard disk drive, choose "Delete Partitions" to completely remove all data.
  6. After deleting partitions, create new partitions for your hard disk. You can choose to divide your hard disk capacity into 2 or more partitions depending on your requirements.
  7. Format the root partition now (Drive C) to continue the installation.

My emachines will not install windows xp, so i tried to install another windows perfessional and it said the disk has exceeded its limet.


Hi,
Pop the disk in the drive and set off your install.
When the setup gets to the part where it asks you where you would like to install XP you will need to delete the C drive partition, format the partition and install XP.
XP from a clean install only takes 3GB of hard drive space, so unless you are trying to install XP on a drive which is only 2GB then you have no chance until you get a bigger capacity hard drive.

The information will be there at the beginning of setup telling you how many partitions you have (if any) and how big the drive is.

Remember that you need to delete the partitions that holds the older operating system as all the information is still on the drive, deleting the partition will permanently delete the information.

Regards.

Hard disk partition


A warning first: Make sure you don't delete the primary partition; This is the partition that contains your OS, and you can cause yourself much grief trying to delete it(Generally, this is the "C:" partition.

So, to delete a partition, there are a number of things you can do; I would recommend using Partition Magic, or a similar program - less margin for error, and much less complicated than other methods.

You can also use MMC, or Microsoft Management Console.
Click Start>Run type in mmc, hit enter. At the Console1 screen, click File>Add/Remove Snap-In.
Click Add.
Scroll down to Disk Management, highlight it, click Add, Finish, Close, and Okay. This will bring you back to the Console1 window.
Highlight Disk Management(Local) on the left, and your drives/partitions should display on the right.
Right-Click the partition you want to delete, and select Delete Partition.

Alternatively, if you're installing windows, you'll be given an option to delete partitions at the beginning of the installation.

How to reformat R52 ibm thinkpad


Your laptop should have come with a recovery disk, you will need to boot to that disk following the onscreen steps for formatting and restoring the operating system files. Furthermore, if your system did not come with a recovery disk, or you have a Windows XP/Vista disk you can boot to that instead.

Windows XP Install:

After the installation system boots, the setup prompt will prompt you for searching the system for previously installed versions of Windows; bypass the recovery option after the search is complete. The setup will then display a list of Hard Drives to install Windows; follow the key for deleting the partition (press "D" to delete). Once the partition has been deleted highlight the "free hard drive space" and press "Enter" then you will be prompted to format the drive and install Windows. Moreover, you should right down the Windows Product Key off the sticker on the bottom of your laptop; you'll be asked for that key after the setup restarts your computer assuming you are using that license for that version of Windows.

Windows Vista Install:

When you boot to the Vista DVD you will be prompted to enter the product key as soon as the setup loads. Select the Hard Drive with the mouse, then left-click the format button on the right pane. Continue with the installation.
