How do you check/change the HDD partitions?

Welcome to BC. :thumbsup:

To check the partitions go to Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Managment>Disk Managment.

To change them see directions at this website.

There are various aspects to a partition.

Hi TheEndX.

What do you want to check ? Partition/volume integrety ? File system errors ?

What would you like to change ? Volume letter ? Volume name ? Volume size ?

I'm having a problem with my laptop as well.
At first, I had set it to hibernate. Then when I tried to boot it up it would give me the message:
"Loading PBR for descriptor 2...done.
NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"
I restrated and it gave me the same message.
I then thought it might be trying to boot from something that doesn't exist (Why? I don't know). So I borrowed my friends Windows XP cd and booted my laptop with it.
At first it worked at was back where my computer was left off, then I turned off my comp., put it back on and it gave me the same problem I started with.

So I did the XP cd thing again, but it seemed it overwrote my copy of XP. But I'm pretty sure that it didn't exactly but was reinstalled in a new folder in the C: drive. I was told to check my partitions for inactive HDD/partitoins. I'm not sure what I'm looking for or what to do.

Sorry for spelling mistakes and for the length of this post
