During Windows Setup, you can choose a drive and then choose to partition it however you like. it'll then format your drive and you'll have to start over again, but, of course, back up all your files first.

Help how to format lenovo ideapad s300 in windows 7

If you want to format your entire hard drive (and reinstall windows) You'll need to insert the appropriate windows disk. If you want to reinstall 7, insert your windows 7 disk and boot off of the disk (When booting, it should start by showing a screen that says "Press any key to boot from CD..." and you can just press a key on your keyboard. From there, follow the on screen instuctions. When you get to the drive partitioning step, select your hard drive and partition you want to format. You can delete the partition you have and make a new one if you want to totally clean the computer (WARNING: This will literally delete everything on your computer. Everything). From there you continue and finish the setup (it may run for a while). And you have a fesh new hard drive and operating system install.

How do I install XP on my Inspiron 1545 that is running Vista? I have the discs


Go into BIOS and make sure you boot from disk cd/dvd rom

if you have another computer go to Dell and download all of the drivers for your computer(inspiron 1545) and put them on a USB flash drive (e.g - ethernet, sound, bios update, etc.)

IF you do not want to save any data boot from your XP cd.

The cd will load and it will ask you some questions "install xp" F8 agree. Then it will check for current operating systems. If you have a large hard drive larger than 100 gigs I would partition the hard drive into two or more smaller sections. For XP I would Recommend 40-60 gigs (40960 = 40 gigs - 1024*40). This way--if you have a problem with the OS in the future you can load the OS again without loosing your data as long as you put your data on the other partition (changing the paths on my computer, my pictures, my music, etc.). Then, once the OS is loaded you need to update the OS, get a free antivirus (Microsoft security essentials - put on flash drive), and install any programs you may have or want. Takes some time but this is how to do it if you do not have a clone. Also, check out CCleaner this fixes registry problems, clears cache and more to help your computer run faster. If you have any more question let me know.

I hope this helps!!!

Acer aspire very slow

usually this is a case when it is already attacked by a virus or so ...Or the programs you run on it are to demanding on the resources ..If in the same configuration used to work well and this is a new thing means it is issued and need to be reinstalled..Use the recovery partition or recovery disk to reinstall the OS ..
save all important files from C drive (C partition ..and also from desktop and my documents ) and move them into D drive ..or back-up on a disk .
If you do not have a recovery partition.. use a boot-able disk with the operation system ..and reinstall it clean .make sure you have the drivers for it saved somewhere cause after the installing they will be missing ..
If you do not have any of that ... download a image with the operation system you need and burn it on a disk using Nero t make it boot-able .
Ask for instructions if you do not manage .
remember to check the resources available of your computer and if you upgraded to windows 7 from xp ..and this caused the slow running will be a wise decision to get back to xp ..or upgrade the ram memory if you want it to run faster..Also the cpu is best to be faster to run a operation system demanding as the windows 7 is .
let me know if you have problems the process..

How to setup window from usb flas

  • First, you'll need the DiskPart utility on the system you will use to prep the thumb drive. This is a free disk partitioning utility that is likely already installed on your Windows system. If not, you can download DiskPart here.
  • Launch the DiskPart utility by typing diskpart at the Start Menu.
  • Then run the list disk command to check the status of your drive.
  • Now run select disk 1 where the "1" is actually the corresponding number of your USB drive.
  • Run clean.
  • Once the thumb drive is clean, you can run create partition primary.
  • Now make the partition active by entering active
  • Then you need to set up the file system as Fat32 by running format fs=fat32 quick (quick, of course, specifies that you want to perform a quick format to speed up the process).
  • Entering the assign command gives the USB drive a drive letter, making it easy to access from Windows Explorer
  • Then you can copy everything from the Windows 7 installation DVD onto the USB key (a simple drag and drop will do).
  • Now you can insert the thumb drive into the system you want to install Windows 7 onto and boot the system. The installation will now proceed as usual-but faster.

If you need more help come back.

Hello my name is Michael. I would appreciate some help i have an acer aspire 5920 ad would like to reformat it however when i start the computer in any mode including safe mode it says start up repair...

Hi Michael,
Its possible to reformat your hard drive by using a DOS boot floppy disk or CD. You can create this disk on another pc then boot your pc from this disk. It will boot your pc to a DOS prompt, usually "C:>" from there you can create partitions, delete partitions and format the hard drive. The command for creating partitions is FDISK.exe. Make sure your boot disk has the FDISK.exe command on it.
Let me know if you require any further assistance regarding this.
Best wishes,
