Fujitsu Emergency Restore

My Fujitsu 270Dx has no OS. When I attempt to use the factory restore disk, it aborts for lack of hard drive space. My question is: How do I remove old files without an OS? The setup menu doesn't seem to provide for this. Thanks guys!

    Thanks Eagle. Sorry for my ignorance, but am I to understand that there's no way to free up HD space without an OS? Also, can I download Linux on my main computer without compromising its OS? Thanks again!

  • hawkdawg Jun 23, 2008

    Thanks again Eagle, you've been a great help. I burned a copy of Ubuntu 8.04 (I think), but it's minimum RAM requirements exceed the Fujitsu's capacity. Anything else out there that might be compatible with this old machine? I'm unsure of its RAM specs other than it's quite low.

    Glad to help. It's theoretically possible to erase a disk with raw machine instructions, with the help of adaptors and circuits, some ibm and lenovo laptops build in these functions in their bios. But using a proper OS makes things much easier and safer. Downloading and burning a Ubuntu disk image does nothing to your current OS, however once a computer boots from the Ubuntu disk it can write to harddisk and change files and directories. That's why it is helpful in your condition. That's also why you should handle it with care. However the Ubuntu system is designed for human use, you will understand and control before anything happens.
    An alternative way is dismantle the harddrive from the notebook and put it in a usb enclosure which in turn could be connect to your main computer for further operations. It's not that diffcult and a more straight forward way for some people. So you decide.

    Ah. In that case may be this boot cd (and similar ones, in fact there are quite many on the web) could help http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/), I didn't try myself but it seems small and simple, on the other hand maybe we don't have the luxury of graphical user interface this time. Still the site offered many links that might be help. Try and hope the best...

RESTORING THE FACTORY IMAGE
The Restore Disc that came with your system contains
two utilities:
? The Recovery utility allows you to restore the original
contents of the C: drive.
? The Hard Disk Data Delete utility on this disc is used
to delete all data on your hard disk and prevent it from
being reused. Do not use the Hard Disk Data Delete
utility unless you are absolutely certain that you want
to erase your entire hard disk, including all partitions.
BOOT Priority Change
Before restoring an image, you must first verify that your
system is set up to boot from the DVD drive. To verify/
change the boot-up priority (rather than booting-up
from the hard drive or an external floppy disk drive),
perform the following steps:
1. Start your system and press the [F2] key when the
Fujitsu logo appears. You will enter the BIOS Setup
Utility.
2. Using the arrow keys, go to the Boot menu.
3. Arrow down to the Boot Device Priority submenu.
Press [Enter].
4. If "Optical Media Drive" or "CD-ROM Drive" is not
at the top of the list, arrow down to the drive in the
list, and press the space bar (or the + key) to move it
to the top of the list. (The system attempts to boot
from the devices in the order in which they are
listed.). Note that the BIOS for some systems will
indicate "CD-ROM Drive", even when a DVD drive
is connected. Then put in DVD restore disc that came with the computer and follow its instructions.
• This disc can only be used with the system with which it was purchased.

How do I completely wipe a syx-65Im03


Using your disk with the new OS on it; boot the PC using that disk, when you're going through the initial setup steps, you have the option to format the drive. Formatting the drive will wipe the hard drive clean and let you start over fresh.

I would like to restore my fujitsu computer back to factory settings how can i do this please


If system restore was turned on, you can use it to do this, unless you made a backup, or have a recovery disk or a partition on your hard drive that has a recovery /restore partition.

System restore is located, go to start, all programs, Accessories,
system tools, system restore.

When system restore opens, check the box/circle that says choose a different restore point, then next, now find the oldest restore point,
and restore it to this point, if it is not when the system was new, then the only way is if you have a recovery or if you reinstall windows.

How do i restore to factory without any restore diskson a lifebook t4010"


It is not possible to restore to factory setting without the accompanying restore disks. You can attempt to contact Fujitsu Siemens and obtain a set of repair disks from them.

Your only other option is to obtain a retail copy of Windows and perform a new installation, then download the required drivers from the Fujitsu Siemens web site.

Problem with Hard driver fujitsu mhy2160bh.


You computer need the oem driver for the sata controller to be installed before windows can be installed. It wont find the drive at all with out the driver. You have to use the factory restore disks or have a usb floppy drive and download the driver and put it on a floppy disk and change the bios to work with the floppy. The easiest way is to use the oem software.
