Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I installed Paragon Partition Manager and set up boot manager. It said to restart my computer and I did. Now there is a boot screen that only shows one partition it says XP and the right side says boot will proceeded (yes that's what it says ) in 19 seconds and when it gets to 0 seconds it goes to 19 again. I tried to stop it and it says to boot press enter. Nothing happens. If I reboot that screen is there. Brand new Dell Inspiron 530 quad. 4 Gig ram 24 inch monitor. Biggest anchor I've ever seen! Can I reinstall windows to the big partition and since both are XP go to the one I love and delete Paragon and go on with my life?

    Actually I installed OSL2000 and it completely fixed the problem. I can boot into either partition. Nice little program. i figured the worst that could happen would be to reinstall the OS and go from there.
    But thanks for trying to help.

If I were you I would pull the harddrive out, slave it to another machine and save all your documents before putting your harddrive back in and doing a full Dell restore.
Any wrong move at this point is likely to damage the MBR and render your machine unable to boot up at all.

When did you get this Gateway? Where did you get it? I assume you mean that it has no OS, cause Gateway does NOT make an operating System. Need more details, please!

Missing boot manager


Unfortunately, this often means a disk problem which has corrupted a key windows file. Dell has a diagnostic partition which will allow you to test your disk.
  1. Ensure that the computer is connected to an electrical outlet that is known to be working properly.

  2. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  3. When the DELL™ logo appears, press immediately. Select Boot to Utility Partition from the boot menu and press .

note.gif NOTE: If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft® Windows® desktop; then, shut down your computer and try again. note.gif NOTE: If you see a message stating that no diagnostics utility partition has been found, run the Dell Diagnostics from the Drivers and Utilities media.
  1. Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.
