Question about Lenovo 3000 N200 Notebook

1 Answer

No operating system on boot up - unable to fix MBR - refuse to believe hardware issue

Firstly, I made a clone using Acronis Home True Image 11 to an external USB hard drive (Maxtor 3200). After cloning completed (unattended) came back to machine with message "No operating system".
In short, local drive visible in bios, but with no partitions. Have attempted care and repair version 4 but as drive not visible, cannot fix MBR. Likewise cannot recover system and/or files as not local drive not being discovered correctly. I am running the utility rescue and recovery from the newly cloned external USB drive.
Have also downloaded Vista recovery image which uses Startup Repair ver 2 and run from this CD but get as shown below:
Problem Sig. 01  Startup Repair V2
            02  External Media
            03  6.0.6000.16386.
            04  65537
            05  unknown
            06  CorruptPartitionTable
            07  0
            08  1
            09  FixPartitionTable
            10  1168
OS version       6.0.6000.
I have raised a request with Lenovo, but cannot find a telephone contact number.
In addition, but not quite sure of impact, ny gathered system information states that I am running as a user which doesn't have administrator rights, but cannot fathom how I get the Rescue and Recovery to run as administrator.

I think your system has crashed so you need to do fresh operating system installation.You have mentioned that there is no partitions, it is sign of system's crash.

How to back up ic power laptop

That's rather a vague question. However there are quick a few packages out there to backup complete systems.
Firstly there is Acronis True Image. This software can create an image or file backup over multiple discs or partitions from a windows environment or direct booting from CD. It supports SSD hard-drives, partitions hard-drives and more. Click on the below link for more information.

Another software package is Symantec System Recovery. This software does exactly some thing as the above mentioned package as well as check hard-drives for errors, network & system tools.

I have a operating system not found

This issue may occur if one or more of the following conditions are true:
  • The basic input/output system (BIOS) does not detect the hard disk.
  • The hard disk is damaged.
  • Sector 0 of the physical hard disk drive has an incorrect or malformed master boot record (MBR).

    Note Some third-party programs or disk corruption can damage an MBR.
  • An incompatible partition is marked as Active.
  • A partition that contains the MBR is no longer active.
Contact your hardware manufacturerYour best bet may be to contact the manufacturer of your computer or your hard disk. The manufacturer may have a utility that you can use to perform a more detailed scan for damaged areas of the disk and help verify the correct BIOS settings. However, be aware that the damage to your hard disk may be serious. Sometimes this means that your only solution is to replace your hard disk.
