Need command at boot up to access disk image to remove corrupted partition and fresh install


If there a corruption on the hard drive you might not be able to boot up on it. Instead try downloading Ubuntu for the desktop. This should allow you to boot up using the CD, don't install the software just use it from the cd, it should give you access to the hard drive.

How back up your files (data) before doing system restore


<p>1. Use of pre-installed backup tools. Many computers have a backup software installed when you buy (including Time Machine backup and restore for Mac or Windows). These tools are designed to transfer files to various media they create on the computer hard drive or external hard drive, you can prevent a total loss of data is performed. When you open the utility, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the backup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Back up important files on a USB stick or Memory Stick. Insert the stick into a USB port on your computer. Drag the selected files to the disk icon on the desktop (Mac) or PC (Windows) will appear. Flash drives and memory sticks are very mobile and can be stored in small spaces such as basements. Although they generally do not have a capacity of more than a few gigabytes (GB), they are large enough to store your important files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Enter an external hard drive. These external hard drives usually have a very large capacity and can therefore keep most or all files on a disk. Connect the external hard drive via a USB port. You can drag and drop files on your hard disk or use it as a means of backup using a backup utility installed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Burn your important files on a CD-R or DVD-R. an entire hard disk backup can be many slices, so this option is ideal if you want large media files or documents for easy access later. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM and follow the instructions on the screen (for Windows and Mac) to back up and store files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Upload files for storage in the cloud. Services in the Internet cloud storage (like Mozy and drop-down box) are great ways to backup files to the internet access from any Internet enabled device. Important files with sensitive information may only be attached to a back-up cloud services such as Mozy. Clouds, Drop box is ideal for backing up photos, videos and other files less sensitive.<br />

My emachines e350 won`t turn on it alweys says No bootable device--Please restart systam and I do that and it says it again


Check that you have not left a non-bootable CD, diskette, or DVD in the drives of your PC, nor have any USB devices plugged in that the system might be looking to try to boot from.

If the above check is clear, then go into the BIOS settings and check that your internal hard disk drive is set as the first boot device or is ahead of any other disk drives you may have installed.

You cannot connect computers to each other by just using a standard USB cable - it doesn't work that way.

If you still cannot boot from your internal hard drive, then you should consider downloading a copy of Hiren's Boot CD (which is a CD .ISO image) then burn this to a real CD and try booting from that media - you may have to select the CD as a boot device in your BIOS or if you get a boot options menu.

If you can boot the Hiren's CD ok, then your internal hard disk may have failed - you can test this with the DOS Programs of the Hiren's CD by selecting Hard Disk tools then selecting HDAT2 which will try to find any installed hard disks then allow you to test these and repair problems if possible.

How to Boot and Install Windows 7 from a USB (even without an ISO file)


While searching in internet I found 3 ways of doing this thing. I will explain all of them here.
1st Method: (The simple one) * Requires a valid ISO image.
Download Microsoft's official tool to install Windows 7 from your USB stick.
Links below:
From CNET: http://download.cnet.com/Windows-7-U...?tag=mncol;pop
MS Store: http://images2.store.microsoft.com/p...B-DVD-tool.exe - Microsoft Store Info Here.
To install the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool:


  1. Click to open the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool installation file.
  2. When you are prompted to either save the file to disk or run it, choose Run.
  3. Follow the steps in the setup dialogs. You'll have the option to specify where to install the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool.
Note: You need to be an administrator on the computer you are installing the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool on. The tool requires the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 or higher.
2nd Method: (Reliable method, Supports multiple types of image files) Requirements:
Now insert the USB drive, run UNetbootin, and select Disk Image as ISO( or select the type of image file of which you have).
Browse your local drive for Windows 7 that you downloaded and click Open.
Now Select Type as USB and choose the drive.Once done, it will look like a bit similar to the screenshot shown below.

unetbootinmainwindows77.png Click OK and it will begin extracting all installation files to the USB drive. The whole process will take some time(10-15 minutes), so have patience.
Once the installation is complete, reboot your computer. Now while your system is starting up press the appropriate button(usually F1, F2, F12, ESC, Backspace, or Escape) to bring up Bios Boot Menu. Change the startup order to boot USB by default, usually you will have to press F6 to move the selected USB device on top. Once done, save changes and restart the system.
3rd Method:( Try this if both above methods are not working) Using Ultra ISO application.
1) Download the free UltraISO trial by clicking on this
2) Start UltraISO as administrator
3) "Burn" the iso image to the USB stick by following these steps
With UltraISO:
- Open the image of Vista/Win7 with UltraISO
- Under BOOTABLE tab choose WRITE DISK IMAGE
- Choose your USB stick under "Disk Drive"
- Choose a method (It's recommended to use USB-HDD+)
- Press Write
PS: Make sure to change your BOOT order in BIOS to boot from your USB drive first.

How to Install an Operating System on an External USB Hard Drive:



You may have an external hard drive you want to use for more than just document backup.
In this situation, you can install an operating system onto your external hard drive. By doing so, you will be able to run your external hard drive as a fully functional operating system.
If your primary hard drive ever crashes, you will have a backup option unavailable to those who simply use their external hard drives as file and document backup.

1) Plug your external Hard Drive into your Computer using the USB cable. Insert the installation disk for your Operating System into the CD/DVD Drive. Turn on or restart your Computer.

2) Boot from the installation disk. You may have to press a key once prompted to boot from the installation disk.

3) Accept the license terms and conditions. Read through these carefully if you wish to understand your legal rights as a user. If you disagree with these terms and conditions, you may want to purchase a different Operating System.

4) Choose your destination drive. Your external Hard Drive will likely be the E: or F: drive. By default, the C: will represent your main Hard Drive and the D: will usually represent your CD/DVD Drive.

5) Begin the installation. Your external Hard Drive will install the Operating System. You will now be able to run that Operating System off of your external hard drive.


Hope this helps.

Lost restore disk,want to install oem windows xp. computer doesnt read disk


I assume you're saying that the pc is not booting from the DVD/CD? If that's the case, you
need to go to the BIOS setup, where you need to change the device boot order. It's now
probably set to start running from the hard drive, reason why your DVD/CD is not booting.
To go to the BIOS setup, press the F2 or delete, or whatever key the first POST messages
instruct you to use to go into SETUP mode. Different BIOS manufacturers use different
keys, so you have to be quick and interrupt the boot process using the correct key. If you
fail to determine what key it is, reboot once again, until you see/read what key does the
job.
Next, once you're into the setup screens, look for one set of options called Boot Options
or Boot Order. Read the instructions to learn what keys to use to change the values.
Ensure that the first device accessed is the CD/DVD drive, then whatever else next, etc.
Once that's done, save your settings following the prompts, load your DVD/CD and reboot
again.
That should read the disc and start the installation.
Good luck!

Lost data on hard drive and unable to connect


Unless you are willing to spend some big bucks on getting everything recovered and you have already tried all of the above steps everything on there is lost. I have gone through the same problem if you can't access it as a slave then you truly have lost all that was on there. If you buy a new hard drive consider a seagate. It is a little more cost wise but they have good life ratings and always try and back up files on dvd just in case.

How to install Windows 7 from a .iso without burning onto a DVD


proxy?url=http%3a%2f%2f1.bp.blogspot.com%2f_uu-faylkkn4%2fs5sjwgyglri%2faaaaaaaaih0%2fwwn5u85pula%2fs400%2fwindows7_logo.jpg&container=focus&gadget=a&rewritemime=image%2f*&refresh=31536000 Windows 7 doesnot allow you to install off the same Hard Disk. But if you didn't want to burn the .iso image of Windows 7 that you downloaded to a new DVD - you can still install it off the .iso file by using the method below.
You will need a portable hard disk / pen drive though.
Incase, you have a portable hard disk or a pen drive - do the following : 1. Get WinRar (www.rarlabs.com) and install the software on your machine. WinRar is similar to winzip but supports many other formats including .iso. 2. Extract the .iso of Win7 to your pen drive / portable hard disk. Place the extracted files into the root of the drive - your other data can be put into folders. 3. Restart your laptop and hold F9 / F2 to enter into boot-menu which gives you a choice to load from. Here select your pen-drive / portable hard disk - usually a USB device.
Done - that's all it takes. You can now go ahead with the normal install process.
