If you really can't access the recovery section and you really want to format your PC, then put on the Vista CD and reboot. Boot using the Vista CD and paritition or format your hard drive then install the O.S. etc.

Hooking up a Internal Hard drive


You probably need to give more details. If it's a replacement drive, did you reinstall Windows from a CD? Did you copy from the original hd? It's simple enough to remove the two cables from the original drive, physically remove and replace the drive, and hook up the new drive. But then you'd need to boot to a Windows CD in the CD/DVD player to format and install Windows, if that's what you're attempting to do.

There's possibly a recovery partition on the old drive )or a recovery CD). If so, you'd connect the new drive to a second power cable, and data cable (which might not be included in the tower) :

(from http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Desktops/8510406.pdf)

To restore system software from the Recovery discs:
1 Insert the Recovery disc #1 into the CD or DVD drive.
2 Restart the computer, then press and hold
R when prompted to display the restore process options. The
Options menu appears.
3 Select a restore process option:
- Press R to boot from the hard drive recovery partition
or CD. If no recovery partition is found, go to Step 4.
- Press F to format the hard drive and perform a full system
recovery, then go to Step 5.
4 Click a system restore option. For more information, see
"Restoration options" on page 5.
- Non-Destructive System Restore (Recommended)
- Full System Restore (Destructive)
- Full System Restore (with Backup) (Advanced Option)
5 Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the system
software restoration process.

How do i access the recovery partition on a sony vaio vgn-nr220e laptop


If the recovery software was put on a second partician, you would access it by turning on the pc and watching the lower right side of the screen during start up to read what keys are necessary to start the recovery process. You didn't mention what operating system you are using and each one has a different key to enter the bios and second partician area. It is usually F2, or delete. Some use F8. It will tell you what key to enter the area during the start up before the windows screen is displayed.

If the recovery software is not on a second partician of your hard drive, then go into system recovery using windows (start, programs, accessories, system tools and then slide over to system recovery) and just follow the prompts.

if you have the system recover disks, put one in the drive and restart the pc until it launches using it and then follow the prompts.

Error : 10-FC12-0570 when i try to reinstall with the cds


Error 10-FC12-0570 on Toshiba satellite This error message means that the recovery utility was not able to read the data from the disc correctly, or wasn't able to write it to the hard drive.
The problem could be with the disc, the CD/DVD drive or the hard drive.


Solution:

Try copying the second disc using another system. If it's impossible: order for a new disc. If you can copy it, try using the copy to do the restore.

Try using a third party disk checker to verify the problem, is or is not, with the hard drive.

The best way would be to load the Windonws Vista discs, format the pc and reinstall.
(Vista Recovery Boot Cd is available free by Microsoft). Download it burn the Image .iso and run that disc. That disc will not restore the OS: run diagnostics on the HDD; once disk check is completed and repaired, proceed with the Recovery disks that you have.

I want to restore to factory state but boot cd won't work


I think your hard drive which is a SATA drive, needs to be formatted specially for Vista.
you need to find out the make and model of your hard drive,and then you can download a hard drive formatting utility program from the hard drive manufacturers website.
The hard drive is accessed from under the keyboard on this model.

Restore window vista for acer aspire 5920


Hi Acer supply the restoration files in a hidden partition on your hard drive. If it is the same as mine try this. Start the pc, then while the Acer logo is showing, press ALT & F10 at the same time. Then just follow the instructions. Bear in mind that this will format your C drive so you should do a backup of any important data first. Hope this helps.

How do you format a compaq computer, i cant access the restore partician on the harddrive


If you're using windows 98, put in the CD then in the C:\ prompt type FDISK then you can partition your hard drive to the capacity that you want. Then format it by typing in the C:\ prompt ex. format c: then press ENTER. If you are using Windows Xp then put in the CD and let it boot from there. It will ask you what you want on how to partition your hard drive and formatting it.

Emachine W3507----upgraded to windows vista----I want to do a full system restore


Most package systems like that will partition the hard drive and place the recovery image on the smaller partition of the drive. I don't know about this specific system/model, but I'd bet that is the case, and explains why you have no Recovery CD. Now, you need to understand that if you restore that image, it will be what the system had in place when you bought it two years ago. So, BACK UP YOUR DATA!! You will lose everything you have done for the last two years.

Now, having upgraded to Vista, there is no way to downgrade from Vista and end up with the XP you had before. You're going to have to format and start over. Did your computer come with a CD that allows you to boot and access the recovery partition on your hard drive?

Normally on systems like yours, you are prompted to create a restore disk when you first fire the system up. Did that happen with you? Did you create one?

Perhaps check this article on eldergeek: http://www.theeldergeek.com/re-enable_system_restore.htm

HDD data recovery


most hard drives have that erie only 2 partitians at a time this is with your computer how it can handle since you made three particians there is a chance that it only allows partitions of only 2

say for instance you have a celeron your comp would only allow what you memmory can give you this would knock out the 2 partician when created the 3rd partician
not enough memmory to fill all 3 partitians

safe end to this particians in long run can hurt your comp more than help it i suggest buying another hdd to make your back ups or get a portable pull out system hdd this ensures your files are as easy to get as putting in a new hard drive
hope this gave some insite
