Windows 7: Partition Deleted

12 Apr 2010   #1

Windows Vista
 
 
Partition Deleted

I own a Dell Studio 1555 laptop having Vista 32-bit. But it was giving problems so i wanted to install Windows XP, so when I inserted the disc, after loading all the drivers it showed a blue screen. I tried several times but same error was coming. I was having a DOS disc, with that i deleted the partitions coz i was thinking the recovery drive was not allowing me to install XP. But now neither i can create a partition nor i can install any OS. Please suggest what to do ?

Moreover is there any chance of warranty being void since i bought it just 4 months back ?

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?

Oh dear...Looks like you got rid of your recovery option and if you did your warranty is void! Not to worry tho. If I were you, I'd get GParted boot with it and check what the situation is with your partitions. If you have deleted them both, you can use Gparted to set up some new partitions and begin the installation process. Once your all set up, you should image your partition and store it safely. That way, if you do something like this again, you can recovery very quickly.
Good luck

Download it. Burn it. Put it in your drive. Set your PC to boot to CD. Once it's running you set up your partitions. Reboot. Put in your XP disc. Reboot. Insatll. Easy!
