No Partitions. Let the restore media do the work.
My original HD is failing I have another HD that I formatted and attempting to use.. the BIOS does recognize the drive, but when I use the restore CD I get a Compaq Restore error message...the original HD had a small 4GB partition for SYSTEM_SAV files, so I partitioned the new drive the same..with same results...the old drive was 40gb and the new(used) drive is 60GB...
This is a Compaq Presario Model 5415WM
what did I do wrong...Thanks!
