If you delete drive C on a multi partition drive, that space will still obviously exist on the harddrive but it won't be available for the operating system use. No, C and D will not automatically merge. Once your install is complete you can then go into disk management and format or partition this additional space. On a graph you should see all your drives and be able to modify them as needed.

Computer won't boot error code sata disk s/n 0F00-136B and many more???


looks like hardware failure.



find out what harddisk exactly you do have in the bios :
- press Del or F1 or F2 during booting, goto IDE devices, look for the model, size (in GB) etc.,
write down (the manufacturer could be: samsung, seagate, maxtor, fujitsu...)

- then change order of boot devices so that cd/dvd-rom drive and /or 3,5 '' floppy drive boots
before the harddisk, exit saving changes (F10 or Esc)

- then get diagnosis program from the harddisk manufacturer's homepage,
copy that to a bootable floppy disk or burn it to a cd-r/cd-rw which must be bootable
- boot from the cd or floppy, run diagnosis tool, both short and long test, what does it say then?
- if hardformat is available, perform one
- might work now, at least the hd will be recognized
-setup new windows installation.
have fun

Hi,

The set up says it couldn't find the harddisk because you need to slip stream the harddisk driver into the windows xp cd where as in the normal setup cd's it is not present.

You need to download the SATA AHCI controller driver and slip stream it in to your windows xp setup ..

You can find the information in detail on how to slip stream from the website below:

I hope the information helped you

WINDOWS SET UP FAILS TO LOCATE THE HARD DRIVE ACESS SEEMS TO BE DENIED


Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable
then re- start the computer and see if it is recognised. some models of older hard drives needed a driver installed during set up -- you usually have to put the driver on a floppy disc and hit the f6 button when prompted by windows set up to install third party drivers . I hope this helps

Window cd delete only some file. i want to format hole harddisk.


what it sounds like to me is, you ran the windows cd and installed it over what was already there with out formatting the drive or partition first.

to start with a clean copy, you have to format the drive, but youll have to delete the existing partition 1st...if your not sure how to do that, just post back and let me know what OS your trying to install.

Samsung40 gb harddisk unable to format (SP0411N). But i can read old data. I cant delete anything. cannot delete partition also


Try formatting / partitioning the drive with windows xp setup / installation cd. If you are trying to format or delete partition in windows and its your c: drive you will not be able to do that.

Computer boots up then shows windows 98 scrren


you may face either harddisk failure, a driver problem or virus infection:

tools: original win98-cd (or a bootable image

version of it), antivir-software on cd!

- please check whether it is possible to boot from win98-cd, with cd-rom support, not from harddisk.

(such option should be availabe after bios-load is over)

if not:

leave the setup process without fully installing
(press F3 button when asked for repair or install option)

in both cases :

type at the dos-prompt:

c:\win98/win

(command for changing to harddisk, windows-folder, booting windows from harddisk, but without loading all the drivers as usually)

win98 should come up in protected mode or give error messages.

- access cd-drive and execute vir-scan.
- delete and/or repair infected files
- turn down, attempt to reboot from hd
- if still impossible reboot from win98-cd,
run repair of installation and try once again
standard boot

problem solved? if not, take down error messages consult fixya again!

Problem in installing new operating system on lenovo T61


I ran into the same problem when installing Windows XP SP2. This is what you do.. 1. Go into the BIOS (F1 during startup). 2. Go to the SATA menu. 3. Change the setting to compatiablty. You should be able to install the operation now. After the installtion of the base os, you should go to lenovo website to download the drivers and follow the instructions there.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
