Drive got deleted


hi, you could either replace the hard drive for a larger one or invest in an external hard drive, these are really cheap at the moment and you can purchase a 1TB (1000gb roughly) for less than £80. i recommend ebuyer, fast delivery and value for money. (can i plug ebuyer?)

Ibm thinkpad T40 Hard Drive change out


After fdisk and format you need to ensure that operative system is installed into yor hard drive. Using ghost you restore the image disk by booting from ghost image CD if you made a bootable image disk. Ensure Bios is set up to boot from CD.
If you used Norton Ghost ensure you captured the image of full bootable original hard disk drive for same computer. If it does not boot after restoring ghosted image, than the image it is probably not complete. If hard disk image is not good, easiest thing to do is using Windows install CD to installl again operative system, then you eventually restore ghost image.
