  3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
  4. Click Repair your computer.
  5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
  6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.

Missing boot manager


To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE.

To do this, follow these steps:


Put the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.


Press a key when you are prompted.

Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.


Click Repair your computer.


Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.

In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.

Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.


Note To start the computer from the Windows Vista or Windows 7 DVD, the computer must be configured to start from the DVD drive.


For more information about how to configure the computer to start from the DVD drive, see the documentation that is included with the computer or contact the computer manufacturer.

Bootrec.exe options


The Bootrec.exe tool supports the following options. Use the option that is appropriate for your situation.

Note Use the Bootrec.exe tool to troubleshoot "Bootmgr Is Missing" issue.


If rebuilding the BCD does not resolve the startup issue, you can export and delete the BCD, and then run this option again.

By doing this, you make sure that the BCD is completely rebuilt.

To do this, type the following commands at the Windows RE command prompt:

bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup

c:

cd boot

attrib bcd -s -h -r

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

bootrec /RebuildBcd

/FixMbr


The /FixMbr option writes a Windows 7 or Windows Vista-compatible MBR to the system partition. This option does not overwrite the existing partition table.


Use this option when you must resolve MBR corruption issues, or when you have to remove non-standard code from the MBR.

/FixBoot


The /FixBoot option writes a new boot sector to the system partition by using a boot sector that is compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Use this option if one of the following conditions is true.


The boot sector has been replaced with a non-standard Windows Vista or Windows 7 boot sector.

The boot sector is damaged.


An earlier Windows operating system has been installed after Windows Vista or Windows 7 was installed. In this scenario, the computer starts by using Windows NT Loader (NTLDR) instead of Windows Boot Manager (Bootmgr.exe).

/ScanOs


The /ScanOs option scans all disks for installations that are compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Additionally, this option displays the entries that are currently not in the BCD store.


Use this option when there are Windows Vista or Windows 7 installations that the Boot Manager menu does not list.

/RebuildBcd


The /RebuildBcd option scans all disks for installations that are compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Additionally, this option lets you select the installations that you want to add to the BCD store.


Use this option when you must completely rebuild the BCD.


hope this helps

Upon connecting the samsung G2 to my laptop, it says "needs formatting" but when click the format disk option it says "disk can not be formatted'


Many errors in Windows are caused by corrupt files. Those files could have become corrupt because of errors on your hard drive. The Check Disk tool checks for errors and attempts to fix any it finds.
Warning: Use Check Disk at your own risk. On rare occasions I've experienced problems when using check disk in Windows Vista. Here are a few things to watch out for:
If you run check disk and your computer has to be restarted to scan your computer and your computer hangs at a black screen when it boots up, do the following: Turn the computer off and back on and immediately start pressing F8 on your keyboard repeatedly. A black screen with different boot options will appear. Select to use the Last known good configuration (advanced) boot option.
Never stop check disk once it has started. It could take hours to days to scan your hard drive depending on its size. How-to Use Check Disk Using the Graphical User Interface (GUI)
Open the Start Menu and click Computer. Right-click the drive you want to perform a check disk on and select Properties. Click the Tools tab in the drive Properties window.

Click Check Now under error checking. To perform a complete check of your hard drive for errors check off both options in the check disk window that pops up.

Click the Start button to start the process. If you are trying to check a hard drive that has open files you'll get a message similar to the one shown below.

Click Schedule disk check. Disk check can't check a hard drive that has open files. Your computer will reboot and check the disk before Windows Vista boots up. If you want to cancel the scheduled disk check for any reason, check out this guide.
Using the Command Line Interface
Check Disk can also be run using the command line (DOS) prompt.
Open the command prompt with administrative privileges by typing cmd in the search box in the Start Menu and right-click cmd.exe in the search results and then select Run as Administrator. Type chkdsk followed by one or a combination of switches listed below in the command prompt. If you run the check disk (chkdsk) command from the command prompt by typing just chkdsk check disk will run in read only mode. All it does is check for errors. It will not fix any errors it finds unless told to do so. This is done by adding switches when typing chkdsk in the command prompt.
A switch looks something like chkdsk /F. Notice the switch /F after the chkdsk command.
Below is a list of most of the switches used with the check disk command. You can use one or a combination of switches with the check disk command.
D: If you want check disk to scan a drive other than the C: drive, add the drive letter after chkdsk to tell it to scan that drive. If the drive is called X: on your computer it would look like chkdsk X:.
/F: The /F switch is the most common of the chkdsk switches. It tells chkdsk to fix any errors it finds. Chkdsk can't fix errors on a disk that has open files. If chkdsk asks you if you want to check the drive next time Windows Vista boots or dismount the drive choose to check the drive next time Windows Vista boots. Never choose to dismount the drive. That option should only be used by a professional.
/R: The /R switch tells chkdsk to attempt to recover any bad sectors of the hard drive if any are found. A bad sector is a spot on the hard drive that can't hold saved data anymore.
/I: The /I switch tells chkdsk to perform a less detailed but faster disk check.
/C: The /C switch tells chkdsk to skip the checking of cycles within a folder structure which reduces the scan time. Don't ask me what this means.
An example of an exhaustive disk check using the command line interface is:
chkdsk D: /F /R
The check disk command shown above will fix any errors it finds and also attempt to recover bad sectors of the D: drive if any are found.
If all else fails, try 3rd party tool SpinRite.

My hard disk won't work when i scan it using Hutil the only error it finds is a unidentified DMA Read error Thanks for your help


Unidentified DMA error either means a faulty drive, cable or motherboard controller.

Test the drive on a differrent computer using a different cable. If it works the motherboard or cable is the issue. If not the drive is failing, If you need the files that are on the drive request the assistance of a professional facility like www.armor-it.com. If not simply replace the drive and re-install wondows on the machine.

Any questions, reply back,

Checking hard disk for errors


no, checking the Hard Disk using windows tools does not format the hard disk. You data would still be there.

One day my Samsung SP0822N running XP as master died on me....


You will have to provide a driver to XP when you're installing the OS that allows it to "talk" to the hard drive. When you are going through the setup of XP, you will see a screen that gives you the option of pressing F6 to install a custom driver. You must press F6 (and you don't have but just about 3 or 4 seconds to press it) and then tell XP where the driver is it needs to load.

Put the driver from Samsung on a floppy disk (if you have a floppy drive available during the installation process) and point the install of XP to the floppy. It will copy that file into memory and then proceed with copying some other files. Do NOT remove the floppy until after the installer has rebooted the machine and copied the files over again.

This should allow you to continue with the installation normally.

I`m unable to install windows 98 in seagate 80 gb ide barracuda hdd


For W98, if you create the bootdisk from within windows, you will need to go here to download the newest version of FDISK.EXE then copy it to the bootdisk, allowing it to overwrite the older version. This way you will have support for larger harddrives.

FDISK LIMITATION WITH 64GB DRIVES:
Why does FDISK not recognize my disk (or RAID array) which is larger than 64GB?

There is a bug in Microsoft's FDISK under Windows 95B, 98 and 98SE that can be corrected by downloading a newer version. See Knowledge Base Article Q263044 for more information.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q263044

When you use Fdisk.exe to partition a hard disk that is larger than 64 GB (64 gigabytes, or 68,719,476,736 bytes) in size, Fdisk does not report the correct size of the hard disk.

The size that Fdisk reports is the full size of the hard disk minus 64 GB. For example, if the physical drive is 70.3 GB (75,484,122,112 bytes) in size, Fdisk reports the drive as being 6.3 GB (6,764,579,840 bytes) in size.

NOTE: This hotfix is not designed for 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA) hard disks, and it is not supported on hard disks larger than 137 GB. However, even if the drive is physically larger than 137 GB, if you create partitions smaller than 137 GB, this FDISK.EXE version will work correctly. (THE FORMAT COMMAND WILL SHOW THE DRIVE AMOUNT IN DOS TO BE OFF THE MARK, BUT WILL BE CORRECT WHEN YOU GET INTO WINDOWS ITSELF)

Direct English Version download:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/Win98/Update/8266R/W98/EN-US/263044USA8.EXE

This package installs the updated Fdisk.exe to the Windows\Command and Windows\Options\Cabs folders, on a computer running Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition. If you are starting a computer from a Windows 98 Startup Disk in order to partition and format the hard disk, you should copy the updated Fdisk.exe from the Windows\Command folder to the Startup Disk, replacing the original Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition version of Fdisk.exe on the Startup Disk.

Samsung 200gb hdd


When u bought a new hdd, it shud not have any partition on it. but in ur case, I assume u have formatted it to ntfs but no operating system is installed in it.

If u want to make the new hdd as slave and have another old hdd as primary, that have already an operating system installed in it, then the problem shud be hdd boot priority in bios. Enter ur bios and check for hdd boot priority and put the old hdd to the top most order, then restart. this shud fix the problem.

If u installed OS in ur new hdd (win xp),
1) ntldr or ntdetect.com is missing on root dir. (c:\). If u have another computer that works and have xp installed, just put this new hdd along with the current hdd and boot to windows. Copy ntldr and ntdetect.com to your new hdd. Or another way is just repair using windows xp boot cd.
2)the windows partition is not set 'active'. to set active, boot into winxp setup and press 'r'. this will lead to recovery console. type ur passwrod for admin (def=none). use diskpart command to set active. for easy way, put the new hdd to another computer. boot to windows. rightclick my computer, choose manage. on left pane select disk manager. rightclick on ur partition, then set active.

Hope this help
