Mar 16, 2011

I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 that came with the partitioned data recovery feature. I immediately created 2 recovery disks. Yesterday, I sectioned my active hard drive so that I could have, in effect, 2 hard drives. The newly partitionedsection of the hard drive is naturally blank and I would like to install my data recovery or disk recovery information on it.

Dell XPS 13 :: Data Recovery From Failed XPS Laptop Hard Drive

Dec 20, 2014

I have Dell XPS 2013 laptop purchased in June 2013 with Windows 7 professional OS install in it. Suddenly the laptop stopped working giving an error message with complete black screen:

error: no such partition.
grub rescue >

When I took it to the service center they told me the hard drive of the system might have failed leading to such error. I am still unsure is it due to hard disk failure? On the top of that I have many important working files stored in the system for which I could not able to take back up. Is there any way I can retrieve my files? If I need to purchase a new hard drive which specifications I need to order. Unfortunately the system had only 1-year warranty period...

HP Pavilion G6 Recovery :: Can't Detect Boot Device After Factory Format To New HDD

Nov 26, 2014

I have an HP Pavilion G6 that I purchased in December 2012. Yesterday I decided to get a new HDD to upgrade it and start fresh. It's a 1TB SSD+HDD hybrid by Seagate. It installed without a hitch, and I used my HP recovery CDs to do a factory format of the disk.It finishes, reboots, but instead of rebooting to the HP Windows 8 setup screens, it goes to what looks like Windows 8 safe mode with a box containing the date, time, and it says something along the lines of "HP diagnostics driver installation" with an OK. Clicking that or not makes it disappear, and there's a command prompt bar at the bottom left hand corner of the screen.The screen changes to an HP screen that begins to install drivers. It finishes, and reboots to a black screen that says "no boot device detected, please install OS."I ran a check of the drive and it's fine. I swapped my regular drive back in, and it loaded up fine. In fact that's what I'm using right now to type this. The boot order was never changed in the BIOs. If it were the connector failing I doubt it would load the drive that's always been in the computer. Loading up the newly formatted drive in an external enclosure shows that Windows 8 is indeed on it, but on a 93GB partition even though the drive is 1TB.

Dell :: Deleting Recovery Partiton On Precision

Oct 6, 2008

What would i actually lose by deleting the recovery partition?

What i would like to do is reformat the HDD, make 2 (or 3) partitions and install both XP an Vista Ultimate 64.

I already have an XP disc with valid license but for Vista i only have the recovery discs supplied by Dell.

Does deleting the recovery partition make the discs useless? Or can i just reinstall Vista with these. Alternatively i could use normal Vista discs and use the key from the laptop (tried this with upgrading to 64bit on an Acer and it worked fine, key was found automatically)

I did find some guides to do all this on Dell xps and such and all the issues with the MD buttons. I don't think i have these so are there any issues i should be aware of?

Acer :: Deleting Recovery Partition On Switch 10

Oct 2, 2014

First I already created the factory default backup for recovery on USB drives (did 2 of them), but before I want to delete the recovery parittion, I would like to test first the recovery I created on the USB drives.
 
Here is my dillema:I can get to the bios and have already setup the boot sequence to make the primary boot device my USB flash drive.  It seems not to get there.
 
I tried the other option the D2D, wherein I hit the volume up button and the windows button onscreen and I got to D2D.  I get to the menu wherein I am trying to recover from an image and have inserted the USB drive.  That is where it all stops.  It cannnot find the recovery image even though I have already inserted the USB flash drive even before boot up.  I did this with both the USB flash drives I made.
 
I am pretty sure that the USB flash drives contains recovery file, since the USB flash drives titled "recovery" and it contains folders such as "boot" and it has files.  I tried both USB ports (micro - using the OTG cable, and the actual USB port on the keyboard)

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 Dv5-2077cl OS/Software :: How To Install New Hard Drive And Create Recovery Disks Before Installing New Drive

Aug 20, 2011

HP Pavilion Dv5-2077cl Entertainment NotebookProduct #: WQ799UA#ABAWindows 7 64-bit

I have been getting a random blue screen popping up every once and a while, that will "dump my physical memory" or something and then reboot itself after like 30 seconds. my hard drive was the reason for these constant errors. So I backed everything up, in preparation of a real crash. I am in the process of ordering a new hard drive from Newegg.com, and I would like to know if it is hard to replace a hard drive in a notebook, or if I should have Geek Squad do it for $50. Also, I dont think I have the Operating system disc that came with my computer, so how do I order that from HP and how much is it?And last but not least, Is there a post or video with instructions on how to install a hard drive and the operating system?

Oct 25, 2014

Lenovo C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: GPT Format For 3 TB Hard Drives On Lenovo V570

Sep 21, 2014

Lenovo V570, I'm on Windows 7 64-bit.
 
I have an esata port, and was going to get an internal hard drive with a case that converts the drive into an esata drive. I'm wanting to get a 3 TB drive, and in order to get it to read all 3 TB, I'll need to reformat the drive in GPT format (not MBR). Right?
 
I see a thing online that says the SATA controller has to be compatible with GPT in order to do this. I want to use it as an external drive, without any operating system on it, so I'm not worried about getting Windows to run on it; just if I can format it as GPT and get the full 3 TB out of the drive. I don't want to buy the 3 TB drive and then find out I can only get 2 because of the motherboard. If that site was correct, then I need to know if the sata controller is compatible with GPT.
 
I see this listed under the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers list: Intel Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller.
 
I tried to call Lenovo support but could only tell me that she thinks I have SATA 0 or 1, but nothing about the controller in this model or GTP compatibility.
 
How do I find this out?

Dell :: Reinstall Vista And Media Direct Withhout Deleting Recovery Partition

Nov 17, 2008

I currently installed Ubuntu and it was good but It drained my battery so I decided to take it off. After that my computer started to act weird. The Media Direct partition appeared in next to my OS and Recovery partitions. When i would press the MD button, I would get a blue screen and eventually every time I press the button It just turns on my computer. When I try to turn it back on after putting it on hibernate, it states that windows did not turn off right and it restarts windows. I have decided to a clean reinstall of Vista and MD but I have a few questions. I found this tutorial on how to do it on the internet but i found that i have to completely delete all the partitions including the recovery partition. I was wondering if there is a way to do this without having to delete that partition?

HP Pavilion H8z OS/Software :: Deleting Internet Download Manager

Apr 1, 2014

I have an HP Pavillion HPE h8z. When I received it a free Internet Download Manager was installed. There was a 30 day free trial period. Some time after the free trial period expired I deleted the program. The program is no longer listed in the programs on the computer. My problem is  that a message started to appear on screen stating that the free period was over and to either purchase or delete the program. Anytime I attempt to download a PDF file the message reappears and will not allow me to continue with the download. I have tied everything that I know to do to eliminate this "bug" with no luck.

Acer :: How To Format/partition New Hdd Using Recovery CD

Feb 5, 2009

how to partition my hdd?

(using Acer Recovery CD to install Win XP)

I have an Acer Ferrari 3000Lmi notebook.
I just replaced the hdd with a new one.
it's 80GB 5400 rpm, IDE
It's not formatted and it's not partitioned.
My notebook is an old model,
so I don't think there's a recovery partition and it doesn't have an e-empowering acer button, etc.
It only comes with Acer recovery CD's.

when I put the new hdd in, it's detected in bios,
so I installed Win XP Home using the Acer Recovery CD.
and it didn't have option to format or to partition my hdd there.
everything just ran automatically.
and now I have one C: drive.

Can anyone help me on how to partition my hdd ?
I prefer not to use partition magic/other programs to partition my hdd.
I don't know if I have DOS.
I don't mind installing XP all over again, I just don't know how to format/partition the hdd before using the recovery CD.

HP Pavilion Dv6000 Recovery :: Low Disk Space On Recovery Disk D Drive

Oct 17, 2011

I am so tired of receiving Low Disk Space on recovery (D). I have done everything it asked. Empty Recycle Bin which is EMPTY. I am not a computer wizard but it seems unfair that I have pay over $150.00 year to correct this problem once a year. I have checked a lot of places and it just keeps telling me the same thing. That doesn't work.
 
I did just install a HP wireless printer 3052A

Sony :: VAIO HDD Data Recovery

Mar 15, 2009

When my Vaio TX770P crashed and burned recently , I removed the Toshiba 1.8" HDD1584 (80GB with ATA-100 interface and 50-pin female connector). Does anyone know how to recover the data from this disk drive?

I took a chance and tried purchasing a 1.8" ZIF LIF (iPod) HD Enclosure Case for Toshiba, Hitachi, and IBM Drives. Figured I'd take a shot for $13 + S&H since it advertised an easy USB cable interface. Clearly it was not meant to work with a 50-pin f connector though.

Dell :: Use A Desktop To Format Notebook Drive?

Mar 17, 2009

I want to use my desktop to install XP on a notebook drive that I will then put in an Insiron 8000 notebook. It's too long to explain why I don't just use the notebook to do this.

So, is it possible to do with the PC? I assume I have to get a special type of connecting cable, but can it power the external notebook drive and can the data transfer handle a Windows full install and, finally, from where on the PC do I connect it?
