Missing Operating System on D: partition Bootup

Follow the steps from this site When you changed the active partition you told the computer to look for information from the wrong partition. Using the program from that site will allow you to make the other partition active again. You'll then be able to boot into Windows again. As far as making backup discs, I believe you hit F11 while booting to access the recovery partition. From there you can make your recovery discs. Not 100 percent sure on that though. And you will need to get the windows partition set back as active first.

Try pushing no. Your windows version hasn't been Activated. Use your activation key when you get booted up. Is this a Windows OS upgrade? A reinstall? It would be helpful if you posted the Make and model of Laptop and the OS you are using.

Wont boot up,black screen.message on screen says,invalid partitio

When you power up your computer, the system examines the master partition table to determine what volume to use to boot up the operating system, and detected invalid information within it. This is caused by an incorrect or missing active partition.
To resolve this issue, consider the following steps:
  • Boot up the computer with a Microsoft Windows 98 boot up disk or Windows XP recovery console. Select the correct bootup device before you do that.
  • At the DOS command prompt, type in: fdisk
  • Question - Do you wish to enlarge large disk support (Y/N) ?
  • Enter: Y
  • Now to check for active partition, enter: 2
  • Look under the Status column. The active partition is usually assigned to the drive which contains your operating system.
  • If there's no active partition set, enter the number of the partition to make active
This must solve your problem.

Guru, I cannot restore the system and I have no warranty, it is over 3 years old. Is it worth fixing or should I just buy a new computer? Thx for your quick reply!

If you know someone that has a windows disc you can try to use to make certain that yours is not damage. I would not finish loading, because you will not activate it, it will but it will ruin a activition on windows. Dell used Hitachi drives they are junk compare to western digital as far as shock absorbing.

If that doesn't load then your hard drive is bad, and that is inexpensive to repalce. My dell laptop crashed, and I bought mine for $60 at bestbuy. I went from 80 to 120 gigs. I would go with a western digital scorpio. They have a highest rading on shock absobing.

Trying to do a repair installation

OK, that screen is the bios for the laptop. Don't do anything in there. (except check under boot and make sure the boot order is cd then hard drive) Once the boot order is correct, just boot from the cd rom, and to do a repair, just keep continuing past where you are asked to enter F-8, the next screen will offer a repair for the windows installation- press R. That keeps your files and programs, but reinstalls windows. Good luck
