If you wish to delete the partition, you will distroy all of the data unless you use a off-OEM software such as PC-Tools. If this is not helpful, please do not rate me.

    Sorry for doubling,
    PArtitioning is not recommended if a system is already installed. To partition the disk without risking to compromise disk and system integrity you should re format the hard disk. Doing this you will lose all your data and system, therefore you will need to reinstall Windows .
    In your case my raccomandation is to avoid partitioning if not strictly necessary, If you need an additional system I suggest buying an external Hard drive and installing other system on additional hard drive.

    Also remembar that partition editor are powerful tools, if you do not know exactly what you are doing you may damage your system. We can give better advice if you tell us the purpose of new partition.
    Here are some free ones:

    CompuApps SwissKnife

    Super Fdisk

    Returnil Virtual System Personal Edition

    Your system may not start after using software listed above.

f you laptop was not supplied with a Windows CD then most likely the hard disk on your laptop has a recovery partition on the hard drive and you can restore your laptop back to the condition when you first purchased the laptop using this recovery partition.
Acer can also supply a recovery CD for your model laptop if you request one. This is needed when the hard disk has failed.
Read your laptop documentation for the instruction on the restore procedure. You also get this information from Acer's WEB site.

Im not sure what exactly you have in the recovery partition ..but from what I know ..this is accessible by pressing F11 on boot ..and the info stored in it will restore the computer ..if you had vista in it before...probably will reinstall it ..so first just try to boot..and press f11 during the device displaying ..just like entering bios..and follow the instructions if it works..
another way is to install a clean operation system ...(the one that you use to have ..) by booting from cd ..(this will allow you to rearrange the partitions during install...in the moment when it sees previous OS ..and ask to choose a location for install..
after a clean install use the recovery cd that came with the laptop..
But..first try the recovery from that partition..if f11 do not work let me know and I will make some research in this matter ..

How do I wipe out everything on my lap top so I can start over


I assume you've backed up everything? Get out those disks you either received with the laptop or made after you bought it. Run those and the laptop will be like new. Now what if you didn't make those disks? You can go online to the HP site and download a set of disks. HP usually allows this one time. If you can't then you'll need to download all the drivers for your laptop, put them on a CD and have them ready when you install your operating system. Now just start your operating system disk and make a new install and formatting the hard drive. I know the next question, what if I don't have an operating system disk? Well, of course you can buy one. But I think as a money saver you should check with your friends. First make sure of your exact operating system you need. You can find that on the bottom of your laptop. There is a Microsoft label that tells the operating system that was originally installed on your laptop and the product serial number. Now, try to get an original operating system disk from one of your friends. When you install the operating system at some point it will ask for your serial number. Use the number on the bottom of your laptop. Good luck

Unmountable boot volume is Hard Disk Partition lost.
There are two partition on hard disk, one is NTFS & FAT32, if this two partition are damage or lost, then you have lost your data also.
Reformat on it are the best way result and put new windows system.

You can recover your pictures after reformat by using a program RECOVERMYFILES, this program even when your windows system got reformatted can recover all of it.

Good luck!
