Omni 10 5601tw Partition is deleted

Q: Omni 10 5601tw Partition is deleted

Hello, I was trying to install Android Marshmellow on HP Omni 10. It was my fault actually that I deleted the partition. Therefore, no OS is there on the disk. The question comes to my brain - How can I fresh install windows 8.1 x32 using usb. I need to inform well wishers that I don't have any recovery media or backup drive etc. Is it possible or I need to go to the Service Centre? I hope, I will be guided by some very intelligent people. Thank you in advance

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I essentially decided to use my hard-drive for two different forms of Windows XP 32 and 64-bit. This was some time ago, and it ended up with the 64-bit partition (C:\) as my system partition. The 32-bit partition (E:\) was considered a logical drive, and I used it almost entirely, due to the fact that my CD Key for 64-bit will no longer work, for whatever reason.

Eventually, I decided that I needed the space from the old, unused 64-bit partition, and since both partitions had Windows installed on them, I thought it'd be no problem to just delete 64-bit and merge the remaining space with my 32-bit partition.

Unfortunately, before I got that far, I found out that my 32-bit partition no longer will boot. After reading up on it, I found out about the system partition and all that stuff that I messed up by deleting the 64-bit partition.

I've tried to use the recovery console via boot CD, but when using BootCFG, the /SCAN function doesn't recognize the 32-bit partition. I've verified that the files are still there (installed another partition with windows and checked via explorer), but even with an edited boot.ini, the Windows XP Home Edition 32-bit partition won't boot beyond the blue screen, windows logo after "Welcome".

Is there anyway to salvage and fix the partition? I'd rather avoid losing all the driver installations and registry keys I have on the other partition, and would much rather just make that drive the system partition... Read more

I put 7100 on a second partition on my p.c. so I could test it out since I have had to revert to 7000 paritition on this machine on all builds after 7022 due to internet loss bug. However I have solved the problem and am now ready to move the second partition over onto the first one, which I have done before with Win7 since it has a hidden partition with its boot manager and so it doesn't rely on C: drive to boot.

Normally I would use Disk Management to delete the first partiition, then use Partition Magic Pro 9 to move the second partition over onto the first one's free space. It has worked several times so far, but the problem is that I am not sure I want to have as a long-term main partition one which is labeled "F." Is this going to be a problem somewhere down the line? I cannot find a way to change the drive letter on a primary system partition like this to letter "C" which is now available. Any suggestions or do I just need to clean install?

A:Moving 2nd partition onto deleted 1st partition?

No problems will occur. You can change the drive letters by accessing Disk Management, right clicking on the "F" partition, and pressing "Change Drive Letter and Paths". If there is no "C" drive present or "C" has not already been assigned, then it should work.

Hello, I've been wanted to reformat my computer for a while now. So today I deleted my OS's partition, but then I came up with an error saying "windows cannot be installed to this disk GPT." I backed up everything on another partition. But now I can't even access it because I have no OS. I can delete the hard drive clean and install a new windows through there, but that would mean losing all of my data. Is there any way I can boot my computer to recover those files? This is on an ASUS n56, laptop.

Thank you for reading!

A:Deleted my OS partition, but have info on another partition..

What is the exact error message? " windows cannot be installed to this disk GPT." doesn't quite describe the exact problem you are having. Kindly post the full error message, we need the specifics.

What version of Windows do you intend to install? Seven | 8 | 8.1 (32-bit | 64-bit).

How did you delete the OS partition (Windows media or other utility?).

Did you perform any other partition operations other than just deleting the partition? For example, converting from GPT to MBR disk or vice versa, creating new partitions, etc?

Before Win7 I had Win XP SP3.
I did clean installation (deleted Program Files partition and C:\) partition, but somehow, my "Programming" partition got deleted as well.
It was 10 GB, and had some VERY important data on it.
When I go to Storage Manager, it's shown as part of C: partition, as you can see on image.

2. Unallocated space is for my new XP installation.
3. Partition E:\ is for movies, G:\ is for installations and .exe files, D:\ is "Program Files" partition.

I'm just going to lay the story out from the beginning and build up to my current status of the problem.

I had a working desktop pc with a single hard drive (200GB) that had 2 partitions. I had my main partition that had literally everything on it. And a 2nd partition labeled "hp_recovery."(@ 10gb) In the past I had formatted and reinstalled no problem and for some reason every time I did a new install that recovery would carry over and I know what it's there for but I got tired of losing 10 gigs for nothing since I have my own install cd. So one day I just got impulsive and decided I was going to just delete that recovery partition and merge the empty space into my main partition and just have 1 big one. Well I deleted it using partition magic or a similar program and got rid of it pretty easy, BUT thinking it would just be so smooth after restart my system would not boot and just hanged at a blank black screen after power on. So I tried to fix the MBR and try to get a boot out of my main partition but had no luck. Not wanting to create a new partition out of the 10gig and install xp just to recover my files and burn to cds I decided to try to recover the lost partition and undo all changes I made and just deal with the extra partition on my pc until I could find a better solution.

I looked up software on my other pc and tried many different data recovery programs such as, Partition Table Doctor, Parted Magic, EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard Pro. These are ... Read more

Hello Ayan007, welcome to Seven Forums!



If you didn't create the "Recovery Disks" before you deleted the "Recovery Partition" then you may have done away with the only way to recover your PC if ever you have any issues that require you to do a "Factory Recovery"; if it was the "D: Recovery" partition it's probably not big enough to install an OS on, how big is it?

Hello tazloccsta and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm guessing you used HP Disk Sanitizer. As you probably know, this is a utility that can securely erase all data from a hard drive.

HP ProtectTools - keep data, networks and communications protected from threats

Ordinarily I'd suggest you try to return your computer to a previous condition by using a restore point from a date/time prior to using Disk Sanitizer. But I'm not at all confident this would work. It would be way too easy for an unauthorized person to gain access to your computer and "undelete" the data you thought had been securely deleted. But you can give it a try.

System Restore

One of the Forum experts has prepared a couple of troubleshooting guides that may help.

Or you might want to skip directly to a repair install. It will try to fix your currently installed Windows 7 and preserve your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc. It would probably take less than an hour and if it works, you'd just have to reinstall Windows Updates.

You could also use this opportunity to do a clean reinstall and eliminate the HP bloatware and useless factory installed utilities that just slow down a machine.

Try using data recovery software. You will likely need to use "scan" mode, which will read all of the sectors of the HDD (and will take awhile). I've had decent luck with EaseUS.

Now i think the entire hard disk is screwed up.

But disk 1 is split into 100mb, 60Gb and 405.66 GB with the 405.66 being unallocated. What should i do to make it 1 500GB harddisk.

Pls Helpp!!!
 

A:Please help with deleted partition

Assuming the disk does not contain an operating system, or any personal data you need, just remove the partitions, so the whole disk is unallocated, then create a simple partition the entire size of the disk e.g. 465GB in size.

Hello. I have an Acer laptop that had Windows 8 on it. We took the free upgrade to get to Windows 10 and tried it for a few months. Now I decided to try to install Windows 7 on it. I put the disc in the drive and booted. I deleted all partitions except for the data partition that has our movies and music on it. It tells me that Windows can't be installed on this because it is a GPT type. It appears that while the installer is running, when you delete partitions it happens immediately. I thought that it would allow me to cancel because I didn't commit the changes, but I was wrong. I can't format the entire drive because we have important documents on there. What can I do to reinstall Windows 10? We prefer 7, but I have a feeling I need to reinstall 10 first, and then back up the data to an external drive, and then wipe the whole drive to install 7.

Hello everyone!

I had a dual boot on my laptop (running windows 7 and arch linux). I decided to get rid of the linux partitions and accidentally deleted the EFI partition. As a result, my laptop now doesn't recognize that there is any operating system on the computer.

What I have tried: I am currently using this: http://www.eightforums.com/general-support/52515-windows-8-cant-start-due-missing-efi-partition.html and the post by Genet with Option 3 since I allocated the space back to my disk C. I am running into an error part way thru the solution though where after I do "create partition efi size=260", it comes back with "MSR and EFI partitions are only supported on GPT disks. Convert the selected disk to GPT and try again". I don't know if I want to do that because its my local disk C...don't want to mess that up and change the format of that.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I can't refresh or reinstall using Windows or Samsung functions, which I is my own fault as I deleted the recovery partition by mistakenly thinking it was not important.

I have contacted Samsung, they say it's my fault so they won't help. I contacted Microsoft and they said the same. Nobody will provide installation disks. I think these are my options..

1) Use my flatmates Windows 8 laptop to make disks. Its a different brand laptop though, is this a problem? Also, should I use DVDs or CDs? I have my serial number and product code and I don't mind downloading drivers from Samsung.

2)Buy the Windows 8 Pro upgrade for ?50 because I'm a student. But I'm unsure if this will be a full install with all the files I need because it is only an upgrade?

I would like to sort this out sooner rather than later. I need my laptop for coursework. Any advice greatly appreciated.

A:I deleted my recovery partition.... I know now that's bad!

It isn't a bad idea at all....but that's assuming you have made recovery discs. Anytime I buy a laptop, I wipe the drive completely and install the OS myself, but I keep a copy of my restore discs, just in case. Having your only recovery method on the hard drive (which is prone to fail) is never a good idea.

That all being said, do you have any friends who might have a plain vanilla Windows 8 disc? The recovery discs from another laptop, assuming they even boot, typically won't let you repair a system...only reinstall.

Ok, to start out, I know I am an idiot...I am a little too advanced a user to do something like this.

Anyway, I have a 70 G IDE hard drive that originally had no partitions, loaded with XP. My buddy helped me to make a new partition (with Partition Magic) to re-install a new copy of XP as the old one was running pretty slow and had a bunch of crap on there.

So then I had a dual boot system, and everything was grand. Then, after I yanked all the stuff I wanted off the original installation of XP, which was drive c:, I deleted it (Partition Magic again). My buddy had told me to re-format it, not delete it.

Of course, that was the only active partition and the other copy was bootstrapped, so now I cannot load windows. Get a message saying please insert boot media.

I tried to use the XP disc, but when I try to install it on the c: partition it says there is no XP-compatible partition. I can use it to make and delete partitions, but they are listed as 'raw' and cannot be used to install windows on. XP setup tells me to go back and create an XP-compatible partition, but it seems I cannot, just can create these 'raw' partitions.

The partition that the new install of windows is on is there, but I don't think I can do anything with that, as I do not want to lose any data, so re-formatting is out of the question.

I am not sure whether I can use the XP disc to repair the new installation, I will play around with it a bit more when I can.

If I have understood your problem correctly, you need to reinstall XP. Insert the installation media and go through the process till you are presented with a screen where you need to choose where you need to install XP. There should be a unformatted free space. Choose that to install your XP. If there is no C drive present, Windows will assign this free space as Drive C:.

I used EASEUS Partition Master to delete an OEM partition which was a system recovery partition from the original Windows XP install.

I then expanded C to fill the complete drive as it is only 80GB. Those two actions ran as 1 job.

Now the system will not boot.

I tried some tips from this forum, including using the Recovery menu from the Win 7 disk, but it has not helped at all.

The disk is now listed as Disk 0 Partition 1. It has no drive letter.

If I let the Win 7 install disk run up to the part where you select the install disk it says, "Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The partition was reserved by the computer's Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)".

I do not understand why it says that is the OEM partition, as I told EASEUS to delete the OEM partition and then expand C to fill the disk. Surely it should be the C drive now.

Have I totally screwed it up?

Is there any way I can recover my C drive and my Windows 7 install?

As I installed the fresh copy I chose to delete the old partition because of the virus not remembering all the stuff I had on there that I still needed data/doc/pics and so on when I was done everything was in working order and fresh.my second issues was when I bought my new iPhone the SIM card is different so all my contact and everything was lost for the last year because my back up was on my old system. I have been using stellar phoenix data restore pro and it finds the old system with everything on it.
The hard drive is on 250 gb on a acer aspire 5532 I think the old system may have been using around half of the space or even 150 gb tops.
When I go to recover the system it takes very long just to do 1g more like 15 hr just for that which is so time consuming I'm just worried maybe I'm going to fry my hard drive.

Hi there.

"Nullo Problemo".

Just boot up your repair disk and go into "Repair System" when you get the start up options.

You'll need either your install disk or a recovery disk. (Both can be booted from a USB).
You'll also need to set your current partition as "Active". Use Gparted or partition wizard from a bootable recovery medium to set this.

(You'll need another bootable drive (CD / DVD / USB etc.) to boot to set this but GPARTED etc. can create bootable media for this sort of stuff).

Hi everybody.
I'm afraid I did something stupid. I have 2 HD: the master with Win98 (with 3 units C,E,F FAT32) and the slave with WinXP (unit D, NFTS). I wanted to replace Win98 with Linux, keeping the dual boot possibility.
Before installing linux as second OS, I wanted to merge the three partitions on the master disk with partition magic. It gave me error #2003 (?) and at startup winXP could not find any units on that hard disk. So I decided to delete all the partition on that hard drive (NOT on the one containing the XP and my data) and create a new one.
Result: winXP did not start up. I tried with the XP cd recovery tool and run fixboot.
Result: I have the message that the file windows\sytem32\hal.dll. is missing or corrupt.
I tried to expand it from the xp cd but I got again the same message, so I put back the previous hal.dll file.
The data on the secondary drive are all there but I cannot start up.

Then i shut down the computer, upon booting up i was greeted with an grub error and unable to boot into windows. I used super grub disk, now windows boots up fine now. I'm left with this now, three other partitions and a 218gb of free space. How can i allocate my free space (218gb) to my C: drive? I right click my C: drive but the extend volume is grayed out. Only the Shrink volume is selectable.

Hi-

I accidentally started to install a new version of XP Home on an existing partition that had a good working XP home on it. I got to the point on the install where it highlighted the good partition and I hit "L" to erase it. At that point I stopped and tried a repair from the XP Home disk but no luck. Since it didn't overwrite it (probably just erased some pointers) is there any way to get back the good partition/OS that was on this disk?

Thanks

Hello,

Hey guys (or gals) I deleted the priamry partition on my gateway computer. Windows XP. Is my home computer and it was infected with tons of viruses. I think I screw up big time. I keep putting the recovery Cd back in, but at one point it doesn't recognice some of the files that is uploading. After a while it goes to a black screen. Anyone has any good news....please!!!
 

A:I deleted the Primary Partition

What are you trying to do? Do you want to reformat/reinstall? Or are you trying to recover the system that is on the partition you deleted?

How did you delete the partition. What, exactly, command by command, did you do?

Hi everyone!

I'm getting rid of my old computer, so I wanted to wipe everything out and start anew. Although I'm a chick, I do love learning about my computer. I'm not as computer geek-ish as I'd like to be, but I understand most instructions. So I followed some instructions on formatting, and I deleted a partition. I then had the option to create a new partition, and as I pushed ENTER to continue, it froze. I rebooted, and now the system freezes up everytime it gets to a black screen with white text that reads "Inspecting Your Computer's Hardware Configuration." If I take the Windows XP bootable CD out and try to let Windows boot up, it tells me there is no operating system. (Which makes sense because I deleted the partition.) So now I need to create that partition (I guess?) but have no idea how to do it from here since it keeps freezing up with the CD in. Any suggestions?

During a re-install of Win 7 I deleted the 100mb system partition. The install didn't rebuild this partition. The computer runs fine but will not do a restart from either the shutdown menu or from a program restart window. Don't know if the two are related but I need to rebuild the system partition. Looking for some instructions.

Thanks for the help.

A:Deleted Win 7 100mb partition

There is tutorial on the forum about removing that 100mb partition and reloading the info that was there in the main partition. Not sure where it's at I will look. Found it not sure about this in general so get some others to chime in with help.

On my laptop I have, in common with many others, a 11 Gb pertition, that could be used to restore the laptop to its original state. It is very unlikely that I would ever want to do so, as I have since installed Vista x64 from a retail copy.

Is it possible to delete this partition and extend C: into that space?

What would be the pitfalls , if any?

A:Manufacturer Partition, can it be deleted?

Hello bgowers,

The only bad effect this would have is that you no longer have the backup.

You can delete it from Disk Management.

Arghh, cant be any dumber to delete the wrong partition TWICE!! i managed to do it, i did it with winxp cd.
I have two hdds both have only one partition and i deleted the wrong one to make it into 2 partitions, is it possible to recover all the files after partition is deleted, its not formated yet no new partition created, if its possible to recover from this will the windows be usable or should i reinstall just to make sure everything works like it did before.

Going to install OpenSuse but i still want my stuff back and maybe use that crappy Windows when i need to.

Thanks to whoever can help me resolve this problem.

I was given a Toshiba Satellite C665D. I tried running the recovery media creator but got a message that said No HDD recovery area. The Toshiba recovery media creator can not be launched. I contacted the previous owner and was told no recovery media was done for the notebook and he created a new partition as there was free space on the HDD which seems to have wiped the recovery partition I don't understand how as the recovery partition was hidden, I figured out how to unhide the partition and it shows the recovery folder but it is empty. What I would like to know is there any way to get the recovery partition back. Thanks.

A:OEM recovery partition has been deleted

As far as I know, the only way to get the recovery partition back is to use the recovery disks (that in this case were not made.) The disks would restore the computer to factory specifications, including the hidden recovery partition.

You could order the disks from Toshiba. See Page 1-15 for details.

How did you delete it? If this was recent, check your Recycle Bin. Otherwise you may have to buy one from the manufacturer.

First I booted from the Windows XP cd because I wanted to format the C drive. I had forgotten I had my external hard drive still plugged in and I accidently deleted the partition for it and created a new one. I didn't FORMAT it, but then when I started up my computer, all the files were gone. So does that mean my files are premanently deleted or can I save the files somehow?

oh yeah, when I try to open the drive, it tells me to format.

Hi Guys,

I have two HDs, 80 Gig primary and 120 gig secondary. I had win xp installed and running off the 80 gig and I backed up all my files onto the 120 gig. I then decided to format the 80 gig drive

I used a win 98 boot disk and formatted the 80 gig hd. then I started the win xp cd and it asked which partition I would like to choose. I chose the partitioned 120 gig drive not realizing what I had done. I confirmed the partition removal and then realized what I did. So I start flipping out and I restart my comp

I looked for my files and 120 gig drive but it was gone. I'm really going crazy. So I researched a little and I have two utilities on disk (mbrwork and testdisk) I started to run mbrwork and it has been searching for recoverable partitions for the past 2 hours. I don't know what to do and I really need the files on the 120 gig HD. I didn't install windows and I haven't done anything other than run the utility. Can someone please help me. I don't know what I'll do if I can't get my files back.

Thanks
-Rob
 

A:recover deleted partition please HELP!

Rob, There are utilities that can rebuild a File Allocation Table. I have never used one but I understand that they work by installing the hosed drive as a slave to another bootable drive and running the software from the boot drive to fix the slave.

I can't tell you any names but a Google search should get you plenty of hits.

Good luck. There is hope.

>>I checked with one of my favorite software producers, Acronis, and found this. If it works like the other software I use from them, it'll be all you need.

My Windows 7 partition deleted itself on my Dual Boot, I restarted the PC and then I got the "the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible" error, so then I booted in Vista to see what the problem was, in disk Management the partition was no longer named and was 70GB of free space . What could of caused this? I am now re installing windows and do not want to fall victim to this again.

A:Windows 7 Partition deleted itself.

A partition can not delete it's self only by user error or Partition table problem. A non partition disk space would not have "Free Space" it would be Unallocated Space. Please take a snap shot of Disk Manager and post the screen shot here.

So, I decided a week ago to install Ubuntu 11.04 alongside my Windows 7, which as you know, created a new parition. As you also know, Ubuntu likes to use it's own boot manager. Well, I decided that I was going to download and install the Windows 8 Build 7955 (as I found on Windows 8 Forums) onto the partition that was occupied by Ubuntu.. so, I downloaded the image and then, in my disk management, deleted the entire parition that Ubuntu was installed on. I went to restart my computer to finish an AntiVirus update shortly thereafter, and got a message saying something along the lines of "Grub error; unknown filesystem." I attempted a repair with my disc and nothing worked.

Right now, I am installing Windows 7 on the new parition in the hopes that I can get it working again, just to get at my files on the main parition. If not, I do have a SATA-to-USB adapter that I can use to manually extract the files onto another computer, and then just wide the drive entirely, but I'm really hoping I don't have to do that, as it would be SUCH a nuisance if I had to re-do EVERYTHING on my laptop. So, what I'm asking is, if the fresh install on the new partition doesn't work, is there any way to restore the original boot manager, or am I kinda dead in the water?

A:Deleted partition, now cannot boot!

Your current process will most likely solve the issue for you as the new installation should see the old installation and allow for it in the newly created bootmgr.
