Cannot find my hidden partition.

Ok. I have a NEC VERSA E6510 laptop which is currently under vista. These days, my computer has encountered a problem, so I send my computer to the shop to fix it. They said that I installed the trial version of Windows 7 and I continued using the same window if the trial period is over and so as they said, the late windows 7 crashed systems. So my told them to fix it to the original state. They asked me if I had ISO disc, but I hadn't any disc since I bought my laptop. OK, after that, come back to my computer, but I looked different from what I saw the 1st time I bought the laptop. It don't have a hidden partition, the last time, until the computer went crashing, he had the hidden partition recovery system which is by pressing F11 and it will lead me to the recovery to factory setting mode. But now that I tried to restore factory setting but the key F11 which is hidden partition does not work. What shout I do? I want to restore to factory setting in return.

Hey Darkromance

 
as you now no partition recovery contact the manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of vista recovery disc
they do normally for a nominal cost

  • Win 7 Pro, FX6100, 8 GB of ram, 250 GB ssd; cannot find the system partition

    Basics are there.  It blocks from the tent to set up partitions.  I am giving all of the 250 GB SSD to use as seems it and it is just lost.  It does work with no partitions, partition of the entire disk.  He didn't tell me what he wants.  And error messages make no sense.

    They are like: (and my response)

    cannot find the system partition (do a stupid)
    Can not find the installation partition (crikey, I gave you the entire disk, make one)

    Talk about mega-frustration.  How about a useful error message and some useful ways to respond.

    >:-((

    If the ssd is not recognized in the first part of the installation process, as a location to install win on, you need to check the manual of the card mother about all the necessary bios for its port settings, or weather, you need to install any third-party disk controller.

    And if it's a new ssd, must not contain any partition table, unless you have prepared this ssd when you started in one of your other installations win, that can be part of your problem.

    I had the same problem that others are with the start-up for the drives. I went with the USB boot and it works very well because it has an internal USB port, it works even better because I'm not burn an external port. I use an older version of BIOS that does not start USB ports have enough fast for the key USB is recognized from a cold start *bummer* but not a big deal. Once this is done, I'm off the coast and run very well.

    I would recommend going this way until someone comes up with a better alternative, which I would be interested in doing.

    1. with respect to the first question: your system files have been corrupted. Do a System Restore before the app was used.

    Try you "tune up", "maximize", "registry cleaners" or any what kind of app that promises to improve the performance of your PC somehow. None of them improve anything, often at the antipodes (as you discovered). Microsoft W7 already has all the apps. you need to keep your PC in tip-top condt. Try not to add anything.

    All these various named apps. are all 'snake oil' and very dangerous to use. However, you will find a lot of 'logic' online promo. material from "authoritarian" sites as to how will be beneficial for your PC. Not drawn in by these Advertorials :)

    2 the hidden partition is probably "restore to factory condt." partition rescue/recovery of the manufacturer of your computer. This can be used for the rescue of PC when things diabolically wrong with your operating system and cannot be set by any other means. You need an ISO image (clone) of the OS partition and MBR (master boot record) only, not the entire HARD drive.  Including the partition of relief are a very good idea but I'm not familiar with the software cloning you use.

    Download Macrium Reflect free edition for purposes of cloning and recovery and make the CD

    Installing a version commercial (street copy) of Windows XP on a Toshiba Vista laptop.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 1: Prepare the BIOS
    -Go to section Support/Drivers on the Toshiba site and look for your model of Toshiba
    -If your phone has a separate version of BIOS for XP and Vista, download the BIOS XP and run it in Windows.
    -If you cannot start Windows, you can update the BIOS after installing XP.

    Step 2: Enable SATA Compatibility Mode in the BIOS
    -If installing XP cannot detect SATA drive, enable SATA Compatibility Mode in BIOS if this option is available and install XP.

    Step 3: Install XP using a floppy with the SATA drivers
    -If SATA compatibility mode is not available, you must use the SATA drivers diskette during installation of XP. Follow these steps:

    (1) Download driver Windows XP SATA F6 on the site of Toshiba Support/downloads.
    If a single SATA/AHCI F6 driver is unavailable, download and extract the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver for XP in a temporary folder.
    The Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver package must contain some files under the folder "F6flpy". For example: C:\temp\Intel Matrix Storage Manager\F6flpy\ICH8M_32bit
    Choose the right folder. For example: ICH8M_32bit for a Chipset of Intel ICH8 during installation of Windows XP 32-bit.

    (2) copy these files (iastor.inf, etc.) on a blank diskette. The files must reside in the root directory of the floppy disk.
    For example: A:\iastor.inf, A:\iaahci.inf, etc...

    (3) connect a Toshiba USB floppy drive to the Toshiba laptop. (some non - Toshiba USB Floppy Drives may not work correctly during the installation of XP)

    (4) (4) demarrer start from the Windows XP CD, start the installation and make sure that your floppy with the drivers is inserted into the floppy USB drive.

    (5) for the XP installation invites you to press F6 to install a storage driver, immediately press F6.

    (6) for installing XP you invites to select a SATA driver, select the appropriate driver and continue.
    For example: ICH7M Intel(r) 82801GBM SATA AHCI Controller, Intel(r) ICH8M 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller

    (7) keep the attached floppy drive and floppy disk inserted XP has not completed its installation.
    Do not partition or format the hard drive during the installation of XP. The diskette SATA drivers are copied and stored on the hard drive during the installation of XP.

  • Access cannot find the macro

    Hello everyone!

    I have a damaged database. I decided to try to restore. VD, I created a new database and imported all the tables, queries, forms, reports, macros of corrupted to the new database.

    However, when I try to open most of the forms, I get the error message:

    "Microsoft Office Access cannot find the macro 'TrackDBaseForms '.

    The macro (or its macro group) does not exist, or the macro is new, but has not been saved... »

    This basis has worked for a year, and I never had this problem. A Google search returns no results. However, it is obviously not in the macros page, or in any code I can find.

    I have supports this database for a year and have never encountered this missing macro. A Google search returns no results, so I guess it's something that the developers at the beginning. However, it is obviously not in the macros page, or in any code I can find.

    The corrupted database is such a State that it will not be open to all: the main form that is set to open at startup corrupts. MS Access 2007, size 500mg.

    Thank you!

    Have u tried looking for hidden objects?
    Go to Tools/Options and view the hidden objects to open the database without starting.  You can press the SHIFT key , and then open the DB. Note You may need to do this a few times.

    I hope that this recommendation will help you. In extreme cases, you can restore the data file via the repair tool of ms access as the Access Recovery Toolbox . http://www.oemailrecovery.com/access_repair.html  

  • Satellite Pro A300 - how to access the installation of Vista hidden partition?

    AHOY!

    I have a Satellite Pro A300 PSAGDA 2000R

    It had Windows Vista installed when I got it, but after a while, had to reformat, so I did, (I want to reformat my computer every 6-12 months on average), it came only with XP disks even if he got a serial number for Vista on the underside of the laptop so I installed XP. That was about 2-3 reformats there now.

    However, so that finding drivers I've seen mention of a hidden partition to reinstall Vista (which I hope it is 64-bit) and tried to do this several times but unfortunately it does not work, I guess that maybe what XP installation I can accidentally deleted or something? (Thought they had in fact on some solid state memory which could not be written more or something.)

    * Is there a way I can access it, take another that won't cost a ridiculous amount (for example download) or a nice person enough to create an image to download on a site or something that I can download file sharing? *

    I have also a spare copy of Vista (and a bit of XP) on the drive, none of them will work?

    + Another thing which I am interested in is can I get any of the preview of Windows 8 OS that will run on this laptop? Apparently it improved performance on Vista and W7 would be convenient for running on a laptop, and I have also heard say it is possible to upgrade to the full version of the preview or W7 for a minimal cost and would probably be much cheaper than other methods if possible. +

    And I'm actually quite handy with computers, so don't be afraid to throw big words at me,

    (Tried the methods found on the manual on page 3-8 ([link: http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/computers/satellite/pro/a300/psagda-02000r/download?os=22]).)

    I have European A300 and I believe that the principle on the rest of the same models.
    A300 was offered with Vista preinstalled but without recovery disc Vista. Image that contains the operating system, drivers, tools and utilities for recovery has been saved on the HARD drive and with book factory owner was able to begin the installation of HARD drive recovery. It works with the factory only settings.

    With preinstalled Toshiba laptop recovery disk creator owners have been able to create the recovery disk that can be used if the disk HARD recovery doesn't work anymore.
    If you don t have access to this image saved on HARD drive recovery, you must use the recovery disc. If you don t have the disc that you have a problem. Recovery image can not be downloaded. All you can download are the unique rivers, tools and utilities that you can use if you install a clean version of the OS (operating system).
    On the European models, recovery image was recorded on the second partition of HARD drive in the folder called HDDrecovery.

    Anyway, A300 works with Win7 32 bit. I installed it on my machine and I m very happy with it.
    > Another thing which I am interested in is can I get any of the preview of Windows 8 OS that will run on this laptop?
    I put t know who should give you this overview, but the fact is that you get it from Toshiba. You should check if you can get it in another way.

I tried using the recovery disk, but I get an error message saying that there is a mistake of partitioning, and it does not work. I watched utility recovery options to see if I can reformat the hard disk that you use this method, but I'm out of my League and don't know what do the options mean. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Dex

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it means that your hard drive is broken or is a failure.

    If you have a bootable diskette that puts in the BACK, use it and see if it recognizes your hard C disc drive (or whatever your drive letter). If she sees it then do a DIR and see if your files are still there. If it does not find your hard drive chances are, there not.

    Good luck!

  • Satellite Pro L300 - installation of Linux RHES4 cannot find HARD drive

    Hello

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 and it comes with preinstalled Vista, I loaded the XP due to the fact that I was going to see if I could load linux Redhat Enterprise 4 and dualboot both operating systems at the same time but discovered this "DOUBLE BOOT" means that you can have 2 operating systems but can only bott one or the other...

    Anyway, my problem is that I want to just install Redhat Enterprise 4 linux on my laptop, but when it comes to partition the hard drive I get an error message saying "cannot find the hard drive to create file systems" then click OK and restart.

    Any ideas people?

    Chris.

    Hello

    I m not a Linux expert, but I think that the reason is missing SATA drivers.
    Normally, on each notebook with SATA HDD, you need SATA drivers to recognize the HARD drive before installing OS.
    If you install Windows XP or Vista, you need storage for this Manager. The drivers can be loaded with an external floppy drive.
    But I put t know how it works on Linux

    An alternative you can change in the mode of AHCI Compatible HARD disk BIOS. Then, you don't need drivers and your disk should be recognized correctly.

    Hi wsb123,

    (> Partition-1 1.46 GB Active recovery) hidden
    It's the Windows recovery environment partition. On this HARD drive are for the repair of the system files if Windows can start t more. It s a Windows feature and has nothing to do with Toshiba. This partition, you can find on all installations of Windows 7.
    -Online http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Recovery_Environment

    > Partition-2 580 active GB (drive c)
    With other words, the primary partition because on it a Windows is installed with all your files. Nothing unusual ;)

    > partition-3 12.5 GB Active (HIdden) (know toshiba recovery thing is here)
    As you have already written s the Toshiba Recovery for file recovery partition.

    So I t understand the problem. Everything is normal, and if you install Windows recovery disk you have at least 3 partitions.
