deleted the partition, and reformatted the HDD with FAT32, but when Setup
started it couldn't read the Win98 files actually on the Recover CD. Then I
rebooted on the WinXP CD, formatted with NTFS, and Setup started and ran as
it should. At the very end, when XP rebooted, no image came on screen. --
Now the laptop won't boot on the CD, tries to start XP, then just stops. If
I press F8 during the boot process I can get the 'safe mode' screen to come
up, but nothing works after that. At this point it won't boot on the CD or
I read in the manual (too late) that if the drive is wiped clean, it will
lose some critical files that require a CMOS reset, and I should call tech
support for instructions on how to do that. But HP doesn't support the
Prosignia line any longer. Can anyone help with this? Thanks.
Ps - Up to now the laptop has been working ok mechanically, but had some
software issues such as outdated programs and spyware all over the place.
That's the reason for the reformat.
Re: Prosignia 165 HDD wiped - now can't complete reinstall
wow, the drive have some files critical to the hardware components? First
time I heard about that. What are you supposed to do if you want to upgrade
your hard drive (like I did about a month ago in my sony FX340).
