When windows boots from cd so you can install it red the instructions carefully one of the pages it comes up with is
(What do you want to do)
R for repair
another letter for fresh install
then it asks you where you want to install press the letter indicated
new page
asks do you want to format press F then when asked follow instructions from there D for deleting partition F for formatting etc.
when formatting choose ntfs quick format
Hope this helps

Seagate sata hdd error


Quick format removes files from the partition, but does not scan the disk for bad sectors, while a normal format does that. That's why the formatting takes so much longer.
You should definitely check your drive for bad sectors by issuing "chkdsk /r" in the command line, which scans for and attempts the recovery of bad sectors.

If there is a bad sector somewhere, your system might crash at any time and it might be at a very inconvenient moment.
If you find bad sectors, you should consider replacing the drive

Lost files


it depends if you formatted the hard drive you would probably... if you didn't you are lucky because you can probably find most of your old files under C:\documents and settings

if you did indeed format your hard drive, you may have to spend hundreds if not thousands on data recovery, im sorry that as far as that goes im not sure what company or service can guarantee your files back, i don't know which to refer you to.

Good luck!

Auto format new hard drive in new custom pc


If you mean boot from cd with xp pro during setup you will have the opportunity to format drive either fat32 or ntfs use ntfs
I have never done it but if you can do it partition your hard drive so that you can save personal file and programs on second partition then if you have to format drive again your files on second partition will not be lost

512MB KINGSTON DATA TRAVELER BECOMES SKYMEDI USB DRIVE USB DEVICE..PLS HELP


I think that I have a similar problem (and a potential solution)

1. My thumb drive is 4GB "super talent", and I have used it for about 2years

2. Suddenly, it show up as "REMOVABLE" SKYMEDI USB DEVICE (!)

3. I tried "google" for answer... and did not get further

4. Finally, I righ click on "my computer" -> select "manage" the "computer management" MMC windows open

4.1 I tried the "Disk Management" and it still can not connect to it

4.2 I clicked on "Removable Storage" ... and then I "SKYMEDI..."

4.3. I righ click on the device and select "Task" -> "Free" (thinking ... what can be worst!)

4.4 ... sunddenly ... I see my drive back ... with everything on it....


I hope that this help (... I am guessing that the "removable storage" manager locked this device somehow)

Regards

Uninstall xp


You can remove service pack 2 from within add/remove programmes, you will not lose any documents, but you will lose the udated security patches which is not recommended. If you mean you wish to remove XP SP completely, obviously the files and everything you have installed on c drive will be deleted as you can only save docs etc within an operating system, as c: is just a partition on your hard drive the files reside within the operating system. If you are upgrading to another operating system my advice would be to use a dual boot system and install the other operating system on a seperate partition of your drive, but you would have to have a fair knowledge of pc operating system installation processes.
