Rebuild HP PAv g4 HD w/ Win Home Pre
Posted on 2012-08-17
I have a friends HP Pavilion g4, and his son seems to have deleted something so that
it only boots to "BLACK SCREEN" with blinking cursor on the upper left.
i've even tried a "factory restore" and get the same thing, only boots to "BLACK SCREEN" with blinking cursor on the upper left. I've called HP support and they said its not a hardware issuse but a software issues. However, They want to charge me just to look and more to fix. but they basicly said, they would be wipping HD and rebuilding ALL partitions and redeploying.
So I was wondering / hoping someone may be familiar with this process and have a step by step guild that I could follow just to make sure I rebuild the partitions correctly so i maintain the recovery partition so if needed in the futrure, they can easily do anther factory resore...
I basically have nothing to lose. I do have the final option of wiping the entier disk, create ONE partition and just put Win 7 on that, but I would like to try rebuilding the Drive to its original configuration.
Currently, the drive has 5 partitions:
a 200 MB, unallowcated partition
a c:\ partition, 75gb
a 208.22gb, unallowcated partition
a 13.57gb, RECOVERY PARTITION
and a 102MB, unallowcated partition..
Thank you in advance if you can help or point me in te right direction....
