Why the hard drive on Asus N53S partitioned? 

by on May 31, 2012

Q: I recently bought a new laptop which is Asus N53S.
Whats pissing me off is the hard drive. The C: drive, which is labelled as OS and sized 186 GB, is full and D: drive, labelled Data, has nothing on it at all. I just dont get why its partitioned like this. I am kinda new to partitions. Why the heck is it setup like this if everything I store and install on my pc goes automatically to C: drive? Its so stupid to setup hard drives like that especially when you expect to turn on a new pc which is ready for use and end up with a full OS partition. So am I supposed to plainly drag my files to the empty Data partition? Not to mention that it takes so long and if I will have to move them manually to data partition everytime I store or install something Im just not gonna bother at all.

How come I keep getting a message when trying to setup boot camp that says startup disk cannot be partitioned? 

by on December 31, 2011

Q: When i try to Boot camp my mac i get the error message saying

“The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition. The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows”

I have already checked to make sure that my disc is not already partitioned and it is not. I have done the same steps on my other MacBook and it worked fine so i do not know what is going on with this computer.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

 
 

How come Windows tells me I have a disk hardware configuration problem after deleting an old partition? 

by on January 16, 2011

Q: I deleted my old partition, made a new one and am now trying to reinstall XP on it. Thing is it got to 100% then froze and stayed like that over night… Now when the disk tries to boot it gives me this error…

Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware. Please check the Windows documentation about hardware dish configuration and your hardware
reference manuals for additional information.

What should I do?

How do I partition an external hard drive? 

by on January 23, 2010

Q: In very simple layman’s term (Dummies level), can you please tell me how to partition my 250 GB external hard drive so that I can install Nero 7 Essentials on it. I tried installing the program sometime ago on my Compaq Windows XP & had conflicts, hassles, headaches, etc. I want to use the Nero 7 occasionally on my new Pavilion dv7-2270 Win 7 computer but I don’t want to run the risk of potential conflicts w/my existing CD burner/writer. I just want to isolate Nero onto the external drive but have never partitioned a drive before. Can you help?
