Question about Panasonic Toughbook CF-73 Notebook
I am trying to help a friend out and need to reinstall XP. I have the restore disk but every time I try to reinstall it gets about 3% into it and then halts with error #701. What does this error mean and what can I do about it. I thought it might be a read error but the disk looks great and I cleaned it just to be safe. Any and all info is welcome. Thanks in advance!
This is a Windows error code for a bad hard drive sector, basically you have a bad hard drive. However, if you're using or the restore disc has the partition magic program, it can give a false reading. So, during the install, reformat the hard drive, do a full NTFS format, not the quick format. If the drive will not format, then it's bad. If it does format, but will not install, it's likely that the restore disc is using the partition magic program, and you will need a regular XP disc in order to reload the system. The partition magic was another one of Microsoft's great and brilliant, going to change the future programs that came out hard, and die out in the same manor (hard).
