PowerEdge r.620: What is the HARD disk preinstalled?


Our new PowerEdge R620 comes with a 1 to drive, which has a "OEM", size 39 MB partition, and a partition of 2 GB empty labeled "OS".

What is in the OEM partition? Should we save it before you install the OS? I couldn't find this in the documentation for manual or other owner.

I want to install VMware ESXi. The installation program detects something on the disc and asks if it's ok to delete it...

A related question - where is stored the iDRAC and all the GUI setup cute stuff?

Any advice?


IDRAC, the lifecycle controller and BIOS GUI are stored on the motherboard not on the discs. The OEM partition stores the system diagnostics, it is recommended to not delete it, but it won't work without it.

  • Question on the hard disk on Satellite M40X

    Hi dude

    You can use the hard disks of each production. It s any HDD manufacturing is. The HARD drive is important! So you need a drive that supports the enhanced IDE (ATA-6) interface!

    The SATA drives are not compatible.

    The MK6034GAX 60 GB HDD and MK8032GAX 80 GB HARD drive looks to support the ATA-100 interface (ATA-6). So, in my opinion, the hard drives must be compatible and should run


  • Why the hard disk is divided into partitions of two data (C:Vista and E: Data)?

    I just started a new A200-1V0 and found that disk space is divided into two partitions of sizes equal 'C:Vista' and ' E: Data "(and a small one EISA).

    WHY? What is the logic and purpose? It's not even as if the C:Vista partition is smaller and intended only to the tricks of the 'system' as the root 'Users' (user Documents) is on it also.

    This is the default for Vista (my first use of it), if not, who said that Toshiba could do this without asking me?

    How can I move the root 'Users' in Vista (in the data partition) - if I have two partitions that I might as well use it?

    I can resize partitions in Vista without a utility 3 rd-party (or a complete backup/restore)?

    Thank you

    Hello just YOU

    Please don't be offended because there is no reason for this. You bought the new product with the factory settings. Toshiba and other hardware manufacturer do not know every customer personally and, unfortunately, it was not possible to ask YOU how to set up YOUR laptop.

    Because of this, there is a recovery of product support that allows to configure the HARD disk according to your wishes and needs.

    Please use this DVD and install OS how you want it to be. What recovery procedure starts, you will see CONFIGURATION option on the right side. Click on it and choose the right option.

    Reinstall the OS and enjoy your life. Really, I don't have the time to write on the floors of two partitions, because this is basic stuff and you probably don't want to waste your time to read this.

    Bye and good luck!

  • Reformat the hard disk of the P105-S6114

    I need to reformat the hard drive to my PC by Satellite. I inserted the disc 1, off, turned back on while pressing F12. I chose 'clear the hard disk', and this part of the process went well. It took about 1.5 hours. However, he never asked the other disk. All I get now when I turn it on is a black screen with the letter 'j' in the upper left.

    Can you tell me what to do now to re - install the default software/settings of recovery disks?

    Thank you!


    If I understand correctly, you want to reinstall the OS with a recovery disk... In the Bios, set under the 1st boot device cd/dvdrom. Then, insert the diskette and reboot the laptop, according to the instructions on the screen that should start the installation process...
    > It took about 1.5 hours. However, he never asked the other disk. All I get now when I turn it on is a black screen with the letter 'j' in the upper left.

    To be honest, I do not know what that letter, j, means :) BU I know, the 1st recovery disk contains bones with driver and another disc with Toshiba Utilities. Perhaps, you should go to Bios and set hdd under the 1st boot device rather id cd/dvdrom

  • my daughter received a comp. from a friend that the hard disk has been deleted how to get windows xp back on it

    I downloaded windows xp from mirowsoft up to 6 discs of A which I just it ready for the cd of window xp I don't have.

    Hi cjoyner66,

    Thanks for posting. I'm confused on 6 discs A you're talking about. Windows XP can not hold on 6 floppy disks if that's what you are referring. If the hard disk has been deleted, you will need to use your Windows XP disk and reinstall Windows using this disk and the key associated with this record. If you don't have XP media, you must contact the OEM of your computer or buy an extra copy of the XP.

    I hope this helps!

  • How to recover files from the hard disk recovery partition?

    There are recovery (D) on the hard disk.  How can I recover all my old files and programs of this drive?

    Original title: I changed from Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 operating systems.

    Hello sdf361,

    The recovery partition, that is what you would use to restore your computer when you bought it with the OS on it
    that was pre-installed. It is not your old programs and data on it. You will need to backup your data to restore and install
    your programs since the original installation discs.

    If you do not have the program disk, I suggest that the manufacturer of the computer.

    Thank you for posting a copy of a report of chkdsk on your C partition select Start, run, type "cmd" without the quotes in the box and press ENTER. Type chkdsk, and then press the ENTER key and a report, stating, among other things, a summary of how disk space is used, is provided. If you want a report on a partition or one drive other than C, you need to go to this partition. To access F, where F is the required partition you type F: and press the ENTER key.

    Copies of the reports from a command prompt can be tricky. Right click and select mark. This allows to highlight the selected text, and then click on copy. You will then open Word, Notepad or similar file, right click and paste. The selected text transfers your Clipboard to open the file. You can paste directly into a response message to the majority of the forums.

  • access all information on the hard disk for all users.

    I tried to set up a link today from my new laptop computer Windows 7 my most top of desktop running vista.  The liaison program stated that the administrator on my old computer was only a temporary user.  I tried to set up the account as a permanent user without realizing that it would replace the current account.  I have now no access to programs from hard drive of the main user I was using.  I was wondering if there is anything I can do to access the hard disk with this user and import files?  I forgot almost all programs appear on the computer but open to anything.

    Hi kismet.

    1. What do you mean by link program?

    2. What have you tried to do?

    3. how many accounts do you currently on the computer and what are they?

    4. what happens when you try to access the files on the hard drive?

    It seems that you do not have permissions to access the files on the hard drive.

    I suggest that take you the files and folder try to access.

    To take ownership of a folder

    (a) right click on the folder you want to take control and then click Properties.

    (b) click on the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click the owner tab.

    (c) click on Edit. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    (d) click on the name of the person you want to give to the property.

    (e) If you want that person to be the owner of the files and subfolders in this folder, select the check box Replace owner subcontainers and objects .

    (f) click OK.
