  1. Best answer
    all you have to do is save files to the second hard drive: from what i saw that laptop should only have one hard drive, in this case there are 2 partitions: to merge the partitions:
    Go to control panel
    Admin Tools
    Computer management
    Disc management
    On the right hand side, you will see your hard drives. Right click near the bottom, and you can see 2 partitions on the same drive. From here, you can then remove the partition, and reformat (dont reformat unless you've backed everything up!)
  2. if i re format ill have to re install windows or no?? i have factory restore discs and on my external i have system backup
  3. if you use the factory restore discs and backups you'll be fine. The factory discs will restore your computer to a "new" state. Just make sure you're backups are updated and complete before you do this.
  4. i just had to do the factory restore my bro messed it up, now will i need the product key?

    might i add umm its windows vista not xp, and also i tryed doing the recovery discs because i somehow eraced the second partiton and im going to do another backup. so the recovery dvd's will work after i format the hd?
  6. after you format the hard drive, it'll basically wipe everything from the hard drive: therefore once you start up your computer and have the recovery disc in the cd/dvd drive it'll reinstall

    i acedently deleted the partition and it wont show it back it still has the original partiton and a restore didnt fix this issue is there a way around this?
