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...

Reset my fujitsu laotop model M6210 back to factoy reset


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.

Unable to restore laptop to factory setting


You didn't provide much info. Is the System restore turn on? Do you have a Factory Recovery Partition? What is the Model and OS of the Fujitsu? You can tun-up the Laptop, using some freeware software. If you provide the OS you are using, I can suggest some tips.

I have acer spire 5745(CPU intel i5 processor 2.5GHz RAM: 6GB OS:Win 7 Home basic) which is 1.5 year old. Yesterday i started acer eRecovery then i can not create operating system recovery disk, but


Unfortunately for you, you didn't follow the Acer instructions. The recovery disc must be created before you start using the computer or making modifications.

There is a remote possibility that if you go into control panel and click on 'restore' and go back to the earliest date, you can then run the recovery disc. Remember that this only a remote possibility and I make no promises.

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.
