Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Will Not Boot Into Recovery Partition

Sep 4, 2012

Could not boot into recovery mode, launch the command prompt and run the following, bcdedit /enum all? I have a friends Dell 1545 and I think the Boot Manager/Loader is screwed up b/c it is not booting into recovery. I can boot to the Windows 7 OS, but we need to do a factory restore because of a nasty virus she has.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: How To Boot From Recovery Partition On Cloned Drive With Vista

Dec 8, 2014

My uncle has a Dell Inspiron 1545 with 3Gb RAM, 160 Gb HD and Windows Vista Home Premium. On boot up there is an error message stating that a back up should be performed immediately as the hard drive has a serious problem.

The good news is that I managed to make a clone of the 160 Gb HD to a 1000 Gb HD (Western Digital Blue) using Paragon software before the original drive failed. The bad news is that the cloning process stopped at 42%, but this 42% included the recovery partition and another part of the HD called Dell Utility.

I installed the cloned WD drive and pressed F8 on boot up, but the advanced boot menu did not appear. Instead I get the error message 'no bootable devices'.

I ran the diagnostics program using F5. All the tests were completed and 'passed'. The BIOS recognizes the new drive as 1000 Gb.

Question: how do I boot the laptop? My uncle does not have any recovery media.

Dell Inspiron 15R :: Can't Boot To Windows - No Recovery Partition Option?

Mar 3, 2013

I have an Inspiron 15R Model 5010-3228 

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: windowssystem32configsystem

I was able to run diags from F12 at startup - everything seemed to pass but it ended with a message indicating there was no recovery partition.

I have no original media to reinstall.

The laptop was a gift from my father-in-law in Poland. As a result Dell would not provide service. Warranty is now expired.

HP Mini 5101 OS/Software :: F11 - Doesn't Boot Into Recovery Partition

Jan 2, 2010

I'm a owner of a HP Mini 5101. It has a function to press F11 to return the system into the "out-of-the-box" state. But my problem starts here. When I press F11 I imediately get a screen that says Windows Boot manager on top and and error : 0xc000000e and required device is inaccessible.
 
This started after I made a "clean" install with the DVD Windows 7 that came with the computer as I tried to avoid all the "crapware" that comes included with the new notebook.
 
If I boot into Windows, the HP_RECOVERY partition is visible and the HP recovery image is on it.
 
Is there anyway to get the F11 recovery back to working state?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Windows Error Recovery

Aug 22, 2011

I have a Inspiron 1545 laptop and it shows a " windows error recovery". The screen reads: windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. If windows files have been damaged or configured incorrectly, startup repair can diagnose and fix the problem. If power was interupted during startup, choose start windows Normally.

Ok..... now i have two choices to choose from: launch startup repair (recommended) or start windows normally.

I choose the recommended one and it looks like it is going to bootup but shows this blue screen with flowers on it and does nothing?

Then i choose the second option, which takes me back to the error screen!

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Can't Access Recovery Pressing F8

Feb 20, 2013

I ran a full diagnostics yesterday and it took about an  hour without any errors.  But still when I try to boot up it will not go past the blinking cursor.  I have tried to get into advance recovery or safe mode but every time I have the option to press f2 or f12 and I press f8 it does nothing but start making a sound.  f2 and f12 work to get into bios and the other option but I can't seem to access safe mode.

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 Fails To Boot Up

Jul 23, 2012

I closed Down the lid to head to my room and then came back about five minutes later, opened it up, and pressed the power button. A flash of a blue screen appears but I can't read what it says on it and then once it tries to load it reverts to a black screen that says "Windows has failed to start up . A recent hardware or software change might be the cause." Then I can either launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally.

I have tried both options, ran a hardware diagnostic test twice, tried to restore to a previous date, and tried to boot up in safe mode but each option fails and it just goes back to this black screen with the two options.

The only option I haven't tried is reverting to factory settings but that is because I would like to save my files first.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Running Windows 7 Won't Boot

Jul 28, 2012

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 running Windows 7. I try to turn on my computer, it goes through the Dell logo screen and comes up to a black screen with a blinking white cursor in the upper left corner and will not go any further. I have pushed F2 and F12 during the Dell logo screen, but no way. I have run the diagnostics for my computer, but it reports no errors, everything passes. I have also tried hitting the F8 and Ctrl+F11 keys during the Dell logo screen, but neither of these do anything, I have the OS disc for reinstallation, but because of the computer not going past the black screen with the white blinking cursor in the upper left corner, I cannot reinstall Windows because it will not restart correctly. What do I do?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Won't Boot - Stuck At Screen Starting Windows

Mar 6, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 that doesn't boot successfully. It gets to the screen indicating "Starting WIndows" and then just sits there. I tried safe booting but when it should be displaying windows files that are loading, the screen just stays blank. I tried selecting "Repair" boot but the system just blinks and returns to the window that asks me to select Repair or Normal Boot. (If I select Normal Boot, it gets to "Starting Windows" and that's it.

I checked out the hard drive externally and it appears the hardware is functioning normally. I successfully booted with Hiren's Boot CD. I would like to attempt a RECOVERY but can't get beyond the Repair screen.

Since Dell doesn't provide an OS disk with the computer that would allow me to reinstall Windows 7...

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Restore Windows 7 From Recovery Partition

Feb 3, 2013

I bought a Dell Inspiron N5110 last year. I created two more partitions on my hard drive. Now I want to restore my windows to factory settings, but I cannot go through the restore process.

I am quite sure that the restore partition is physically on the hard drive, but maybe because of creating new partition it cannot find the drive, or the restore program looks to wrong partition. How can I recover with the current conditions.

HP/Compaq :: Want To Clean Up/format Presario C310 -- Use Recovery Disks Or Recovery Partition?

Aug 30, 2009

Ive just done a clean install of my Dell Vostro -- reinstalling vista and removing the recovery partition in the process. Outcome = a cleaner machine with none of the preinstalled bloatware/c**p from Dell. (first time Ive done anything like this, but followed a brill guide in the Dell section of this forum ).

Im about to tackle my Mums Compaq Presario C310EA. The aim is to remove all the rubbish she has accumulated over the years, incl any spyware/ adware she may have, and generally have a bit of a clean sweep. hopefully resulting in a faster laptop. Im backing up her data, and moving some of my Dads stuff somewhere else.

Basically I want to clean up as much as poss, but unfortunately she has no xp disk, just the recovery disks (cds) she burned when she first got the laptop.

As she has no xp disk I guess the best I can hope for is to reset the laptop to the factory settings (?) .. not ideal, but I dont think the (factory set) bloatware is too much of an issue for her shes not a heavy user.

Should I use the recovery partition for this, or do I need to use the cds she burned? .

Id like to know the best approach and cant seem to find a set of instructions to follow.

HP Pavilion Dv7-6b50ei Recovery :: Trying To Factory Reset But Recovery Partition / Discs Created Faulty

Jul 8, 2013

I have a pavilion dv7-6b50ei notebook pc bought 2012. It always gives a command prompt pop up which doesn't stay long enough to read. I also felt there's a virus on it which my anti-virus couldn't solve so I tried factory resetting but when I restart and press F11 it gives an error(something like a boot.. is missing). so I tried my recovery discs. Disc 1 of 4 ran fine but disc 2 keeps stopping with an error.

Now the laptop doesn't load as I think the OS has been formatted during the recovery and don't know what to do. I feel disc 2 is bad too because it also gave an error while trying to copy it to a USB pen drive. I have also tried an external dvd and run the hp test on the hard drive; the hard drive passed the test. If I can get a new set of recovery discs, it would solve my problem.

HP ProBook 6550b OS/Software :: Recovery Partition Is There But Recovery Won't Start

Mar 13, 2011

When trying to restore the factory image (F11 during boot), the laptop seems like it is trying to boot the missing Windows installation (Windows boot manager error page).The partitions "SYSTEM", "HP_RECOVERY" and "HP_TOOLS" have not been touched. The ~15 GB recovery files are still there!The Windows partition (2nd primary) has been deleted and recreated as an NTFS partition. Since then the recovery process will not start.
 
How can I restore the system from my intact HP_RECOVERY partition without using recovery DVDs? (I can't access them right now.)Does the Windows partition need some specific disk label? What is the magic that breaks the recovery when a NTFS partition is simply deleted and recreated?Peter

Dell :: Restoring Recovery Partition From DVD

Mar 16, 2009

I made a DVD as a backup of the recovery partition on an Inspiron 9300. When I run recover.exe, I can see the *.gho file and I can select it. But for some reason, it says it's 76GB in size.

I can't select individual partitions so I can't copy it to the second partition. I know it's not absolutely necessary to have it but the old hard drive was crashing.

Dell :: What's On The Recovery 15GB Partition?

Jul 14, 2009

I've always assembled my own computers so this is the first time I went with a prebuilt computer and laptop from Dell. I"m curious what is on the Recovery partition that's 8GB (partition size is 15GB).

On my desktops, I usually partition 20GB out and leave it unformatted in case there's a system disaster that won't let me boot, I'll then use the 20GB partition to install a fresh OS
