I have a packard bell iMedia Z869 and wish to restore it to factory fresh. It has a hidden partition (I assume it is the recovery partition). How do I access the recovery option?


Get or create a windows boot disk

If you dont have one, write back to me so I can help you with creating one.

Once you get your boot disk in your cd / dvd drive, have the pc boot into this cd

The cd will boot and ask you to pick one out of 3 choices:

Pick the first one saying "with cd support" in the sentence

The cd will now boot in dos and end with it saying that all it's tools are on a certain drive letter

Note the letter it says and access this letter by typing :

d:\ z:

The above is an example ( you must note where the tools are under the drive letter that the software says)

Once you access that drive letter, type this:

z:\fdisk

This program fdisk will open up and show you more choices to choose from

This program is used for controling all the partitions in your hard drive(s)

You will now look at the list of choices and sellect "View partitions"

See if you can now view the hidden partition that may contain the recovery partition and note the drive letter and type of partition (dos extention or whatever )

go back to the first set of choices again and now choose #2. Set active partition.

This will take you to a page that shows all the partitions (hidden and unhidden) and now you will click or select on the hidden partition to make it primary

after that exit the fdisk program and the unit will now reboot

If the unit's software does not work, it's only because the hidden file may have no recovery software or worse: it will demand for the original recovery cds to continue.

Please write me back and let me know how it goes.

Installed new harddrive, installed winxp pro all is fine, except i cannot change the boot sequence, it goes from cd to the 4th which is hard drive, and when changing them around they all jump 2 at a time,...


You need to set your Bios setting to read which ever port you want it to read first. You can usually enter your Bios settings by pushing your F2 key when you first start up. (you might want to look at your specific manual first) Once you enter your BIOS, then you can set which port (device) you want first. If you are no longer needing your disk drive to start first (usually set for first installs on new HD) then set your HD on the top of the list. Good Luck.22

"<Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:


  1. Verify the boot.ini file is found on the computer by using a boot diskette or use your Windows CD to get to the MS-DOS "C:\>" prompt.
  2. From this prompt edit the boot.ini, verify that it is pointing to the correct operating system, and that no anomalies are found within the file. Below is a listing of what to verify
  • If only one operating system is on the computer verify that the boot.ini only has one operating system listed. In some situations an alternate configuration line may be added for the same operating system, leaving the improper line.
  • Verify that the "default=" line as well as the operating system line are the same and that they are pointing to the correct operating system.
Verify that the computer has the hal.dll file

From the MS-DOS "C:\>" prompt quickly determine if your computer has the "hal.dll" file by typing "dir hal.dll /s" at the prompt. If the computer returns a "File not found" message, the hal.dll has been deleted.

To recover this file boot the Windows operating system CD and choose the option to "Restore", "Repair", or "Recover." This option will prompt you for the Windows installation to use, the administrators password and will allow you to restore the proper file. At the MS-DOS prompt type the below command.

expand C:\i386\hal.dl_ D:\windows\system32\

In the above example "D" would be the letter of your CD-ROM drive and "C" the letter of the drive your operating system is installed on. For example, your disc drive may be D: and your hard drive is likely C:.

Have maxtor 40gb hd want to add 2nd WD hd in DEll dim8200


(if both drives on the same cable):
Your boot drive goes at the end of the primary data cable.
Your second drive goes on the middle connection of the same cable.
The red stripe on the data cable needs to be closest to the power connection (red stripe to pin 1).
The jumper on the boot drive set to master.
The jumper on the second drive set to slave.
Look in the BIOS to make sure it sees both harddrives.
Boot the system.. it will need to be partitioned and formatted if not already..

Hi, I have a computer into which I want to boot without the Hard Drive using a Pen Drive. I tried PortableApps application installed in my 8 GB Flash Drive and unable to boot with it. The Operating System...


Your pen drive needs a boot sector and an operating system.

1.) Format the Pen Drive using HP format tool found HERE. It's a 2 MB download. There is also a link to Windows98 system files. You need those if you want to boot your computer in MS DOS from your pen drive. The above method will not let you read/write to NTFS drives.

2.) If you want to boot a semi-functional windows from your pendrive you need "BART's PE Builder" found HERE, and a windows instalation CD (the list of supported Windows versions is found on the same site). "Barts pebuilder" is designed to create bootable live windows CD-s for system administrators and "geeks", there is a small .BAT file in it that installs it on your pen drive. Read a few readme files and follow the instructions on the web site.

3.) If you want to boot Linux from your pen drive visit this web site http://www.pendrivelinux.com/
