5. Select a partition option and click


Next. Partition options:

Recover Windows to first partition only.

This option deletes only the first partition and allows you to keep other

partitions, and to create a new system partition as drive "C".

Recover Windows to entire HD.

This option deletes all partitions from your hard disk drive and creates
a new system partition as drive "C".

Recover Windows to entire HD with two partitionThis option deletes all partitions from your hard drive and creates two
new partitions "C" (25%) and "D" (75%).

Not able to detect the disk


We're going to need more information to troubleshoot, but if it's a new drive that's never been set up follow the instructions below. If these instructions aren't helpful, then please post back with more info and I'll help you further.

Your external hard drive likely has no partitions so Windows has no drive to mount. Follow these steps to create and format a partition for your external hard drive.

1. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
2. Type "Control" into the dialog box.
3. Double-click "Administrative Tools."
4. Double-click "Computer Management."
5. Select "Disk Management" under Storage.
6. Find the 250 GB External Hard drive in the right pane.
7. Right click on the drive and select "Create new partition".
8. After the partition is created you will need to format the partition.
9. Format the partition as NTFS unless you plan on booting off the hard drive, in which case format the partition as FAT32. You can also create multiple partitions if you want.
10. Enter My Computer and you will now see your external hard drive.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

I like to create a Partion on a window xp computer system but it seems difficult


Hi there, here are a few tips to aid you in partitioning your system:

1. Turn off your computer and install your new hard disk. It's unlikely that you have any unpartitioned space on which to create a new partition on the drive already in the machine, so you'll need to add a new drive. New drives typically don't come preformatted, so you'll need to create your own partitions and format them.

2. Start your computer and logon as an administrator. Click Start and then click the Run command. In the Open text box type: diskmgmt.msc and click OK.

3. A Wizard will appear when the Disk Management console opens. Go through the Wizard's steps and allow it to initialize the new disk, but do not allow the Wizard to convert the disk from basic to dynamic.

4. You will see, on the left side of the console, disk icons that represent "Disk 0?, "Disk 1," etc. Your new disk should be the one with the highest number. The size of the disk should be listed, and the word "Unallocated" should be just under the size. Right click where it shows the size of the disk and click the New Partition command.

5. Click Next on the New Partition Wizard Welcome page.

6. On the Select Partition Type page, click on both of the options and read the Descriptions. We'll assume here you're creating a primary partition. Select Primary partition and click Next.

7. On the Specify Partition Size page, type in the size of the partition. Depending on what you want to use the disk for, you might want to create more than one partition. Type in the size of the new partition in the Partition size in MB text box and click Next.

8. On the Assign Drive Letter or Path page, you can bind the partition to a drive letter or mount it in an empty NTFS folder. In this example, you'll do it the old fashioned way and assign the partition a new drive letter. Select the drive letter and click Next.

9. You need to format the partition to use it. Always use NTFS unless you need to allow other operating systems on the same machine to access the drive. You can use the defaults, or customize the Allocation unit size based on the types of applications you want to run on the disk. Click Next.

10. Click Finish.

Finally, you'll see the drive being formatted. You can use the partition after the formatting is complete. You don't even need to restart.

Best of luck.

My hp touchsmart 300 hard drive went out i got another hard drive but it needs to be formatted and pratitioned but i cant figure out how to do that


  • Start the computer in Command Prompt Mode. Type "FDISK." The partition window will appear with menu options. Enter 5 if you're partitioning a second drive, and select the drive; otherwise, skip to the next step. Enter 1 (Create DOS Partition or Logical DOS Drive). Enter 2 (Create Extended DOS) to create a partition. Enter N when the program asks if you want to use the maximum available size. Designate the amount of disk space to allocate to the second partition (the partition will be assigned the next drive letter) Type a name for the new partition and press Enter. The partition menu will appear. Repeat steps 5 through 8 to create additional partitions. Press Esc to exit the partition command. Format the newly created partitions
