> what can I do to ... partition my hard-drive?

There is both "commericial" and "free" software that boots from a CD-R that can be used to do disk-partitioning and disk-formatting.

Search for "Partition Magic" or "Ranish Partition Manager".

Hard disk drive not detected during installing windows server 2003


It depends on what type of drive you are using. Plus, you may have to specify the array controller drivers if your are using the SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drives.

BAD HARDDRIVE


Yes. Verify that it is RAID 5 in your RAID config utility, and swap. It may take a larger drive, but you would lose the extra space. Util should indicate either way.

Best practice is to use identical.

I'm trying to start Microsoft Windows Server2003 from USB Hard Drive on Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server.


Dell provides lifetime tech support for all PE servers. Call them at 800-945-3355 and give them the service tag or express service code from the server. If it can be done, they will tell you how.
Good luck!

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-FRV26 series laptop that has just started shutting itself down and restarting after windows has been up for only a minute or two. I have taken the unit apart & cleaned everything...


The main drive (C) being too full is an indicator that's your problem. Windows reserves space on your drive called a 'swap' file. It effectively takes hard drive space and uses it in lieu of RAM if you don't have enough available RAM to run programs.

If the computer doesn't have enough hard drive space to create the swap file then it won't boot up, as it will interpret the lack of available space as a failure to install the file and then try to reboot.

Luckily it doesn't install one when you're in safe mode. Try going into safe mode and restoring some of your hard driver space, as well as performing a cleanup and defragmentation of your hard drive, and chances are it will boot up.

As an alternative you might think about getting an external hard drive and using that for any new programs/music/videos/etc.

Your Hard Drive may have failed. to be sure. enter setup (F2) then run the hard drive diagnostic utility. a scan can take up to an hour or more and will tell you if your hard drive has failed. if it has you will need to replace it and reinstall your operating system

Dell PowerEdge 1400SC Can not locate hard drives or partition


The controller (probably a RAID controller) that the drives are connected to is one for which Windows does not have the correct drivers. You need to supply the proper driver and .INF files during the initial load. The process used depends on the version of Windows you are installing.

Beeping PowerEdge 1300


When a Dell server beeps in every 3-5 second that mean it comes from Raid controller.
Dell calls PERC Controller.
It usually reason of a disk failure.

Install open manage server administrator on your server.
See which disks are failed ?

Try to run Power edge diagnostics on the failed disk.
If it passes the test reseat the disk.
if it fails disk has to be replaced with a new one.
If passes the quick test, reseat the disk and update disk + perc firmware and driver to the latest level. that will solve the problem!!

99% beeping comes from perc controller because of a failed HDD

cheers

Error Message


If you want to check hard drive space, open my computer and select the details view. OR right click on the drive icon and pick 'properties'

Freeing up space can be tricky. Use the disk cleanup utility first.
Start/Run/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup. The only caution is "don't compress files!!!"

Then it's a matter of deleting old documents [I back mine up to CD before deleting.] pictures, videos, etc. You can also add space by adding a hard drive and moving big files, like videos, to it.
