T30 2366 not recovering from original recovery disk

Greetings!
After failed to recover from the recovery disk, I managed to fdisk into 2 partitions, 2gb and 50+gb. For some reason, it won't allow me to make it bigger than 2gb. Anyway, I can't seem to be able to load OS, WIN2K into the 2gb partition, the other 50 gb still has my data and i don't want to erase them.

2 questions. Question 1, how can i enlarge the 2gb partition? Question 2, how can i load the OS to make it bootable when i turn on the T30? Thank you.

The 2 gig partition is probably your recovery partition that allows you to restore your computer from the hard drive instead of the Operating System discs that came with the unit. You don't really want to mess with your partitions (you may accidently delete all your data). I'd recommend using Acronis True Image and backing your data to an external hard drive first, you can copy individual folders or the entire hard drive. Then you can just destructive restore your entire hard drive back to factory settings.

Lost NTFS partition on my WD1600BEVT, how do you restore so I can use again?


Depends on what you did to "lose" the partition-table.

Download the free 'PTEDIT.ZIP' file -- it is a "partition-table editor".
UNZIP it on a different computer, and extract the 'PTEDIT.EXE' program.
Run PTEDIT on your computer, and update the partition-table.

Replaced hardrive with seagate 7200 500gb momentus


When you created a partition on the new hard drive, did you make the partition active?
A partition that has not been activated can be formatted and Windows installed, disk check etc. but will not boot up.
You can make the partition by booting up in DOS with either a floppy disk or a boot CD and run the DOS command "fdisk" and navigate to Set the partition active.
