This is interesting as I ran into the very same thing the other day. The problem with the Barracuda is that they allowed for a special configuration that would limit the grive size to 2 GIG. If you will look at the jumpers on the drive you will notice an extra jumper that is in the (I believe) horizontal position or in another spot other than master or slave. Remove this jumper reboot with the XP disk in and install. You should see the entire 80 Gig then.

I have a hard disk 2.5 hitachi 250 go I lost my password .... with hdd unlocker is impossible


Things sadly do not look good. If the security rating on it is set to Max on the drive, recovering the password for the drive is next to impossible. The only way to make the drive usable again is to perform a low level format using FDISK which does not care about passwords. If the data is important however, you may need to check a drive recovery expert like DriveSavers.

Yesterday I buy a Samsung Laptop model R538 but with Linux Julia preinstaled. I want to change the OS with Win XP. I begin the instalation and at the point in which I know he want to format the disk I get...


Solution:
1. Boot into Linux.
2. Use "fdisk" command to delete "ext" partitions. // In fact, no need to use other tools (e.g. killdisk)
3. Run "fdisk" command as root.
4. For those who don't know how to use "fdisk", I provide an example here. (Read the man page of "fdisk" will be better)

//Remember !!! fdisk can format your hard disk (which will erase all your data), use it with great care -- unless you know what you are doing, otherwise don't use it. (I will not take any responsibility of my suggestion)

i) fdisk /dev/sda
.) For those who use PATA (Parallel IDE) : fdisk /dev/hda
.) For those who use second hard disk : fdisk /dev/sdb (2nd SATA hard disk), fdisk /dev/hdb (2nd PATA hard disk), fdisk /dev/sdc (3rd SATA hard disk) and so on ... {sd [a, b, c, d, ...]}
.) fdisk "what" depends on where your linux partition is.
ii) use "m" to read the available options
iii) press "d"
iv) press the number of the partition you want to delete
v) Remember ! if you don't want to make the change, press "q" at any time. (that means quit without saving)
vi) If you want to make the change, press "w" (that means write the change to hard disk)
5. There may sometimes cause a warning message say something about not synchronize the disk (because you cannot make changes while you are using the partition -- if you are booting the partition now), the change will occur after you shutdown and reboot the system.
6. Okay, you can reboot the system now and you will find that the partition is empty now.
7. You can install XP or what ever now.

** For those who cannot use "fdisk", my simplest suggestion is to re-install Linux if you don't have any other tools (such as killdisk). And then you should be able to use "fdisk". In fedora 8, you can even choose formatting the hard disk in "vfat" file system (which can be recognized by almost all computer include windows xp and so on -- see "File Allocation Table" wiki) during installation. Therefore, no need to run fdisk

Hello, I formatted the M3000 with Ubuntu Linux, and... i'm stupid


Take your Sanyo back to Linux box, hook up the USB cable, and then mount it.

Copy the files that you want to keep on to the $HOME directory on Linux.

Next, from a terminal, run
sudo fdisk -l

to display all the mounted filesystems on the computer.

It might be /dev/sdb1, or /dev/sdc1 You should be able to pick out the M3000 as its hard disk size is 6.0 GB. Let's assume that the USB drive is on /dev/sdb1

Re-run the fdisk command.

sudo fdisk /dev/sdb

(press m to get the help menu).

Recommend that you choose d to delete a partition,
then n to create a new partition
when asked about the code for the new partition, use b -- this corresponds to Windows 95 FAT32 file system.

Don't forget w to write the new partition definition out to the USB drive.
Lastly q to quit fdisk.

Once you exit fdisk, remount the M3000 and make sure that you copy your files back on to it.

All Linux and Windows systems should be able to recognize your drive now.

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,
Graemevm

No drivers are needed - it should have been seen right away. Check the BIOS to see the drive is seen in the drives tables, and if there, XP needs to have the drive setup using FDISK. The drive will not show under windows until a drive table is on it.
