I wanted to either delete my previous topic or edit the Topic Title but I couldn't find an option to do so.
I've discovered as stated in my prior topic that the D partition, which is the HP_Recovery portion of the hard drive, was missing.
HP formatted my hard drive into two partitions or volumes. One volume is the HP Pavilion (C:) The file system is NTFS and its status shows as healthy (System). The other part of the volume is HP_Recovery. My HP_Recovery used to be assigned to the (D:). The file system is FAT32 and its status shows as healthy (Partition Unknown).
I found this info in the Computer Management section under Disk Management. When I right click on the HP_Recovery volume it gives the following options: Open, Explore, Mark Partition as Active, Change Drive Letters and Paths..., Format, Delete Partition, Properties and Help.
The only option available is the Delete option.
I'm thinking I somehow need to remap the HP_Recovery to drive (D:) but I don't know how to do this and since the Change Drive Letters and Paths doesn't work so I can see where it's supposed to go, I'm a little lost.
Is there someone available that has Windows XP Home, installed on an HP and is familiar with fixing the mapping path to a drive or restoring the path? LOL
I have an:
HP Pavilion 754N Desktop
Windows XP Home
Service Pak 2
Please let me know what else is needed if anything.
For Admin...perhaps you can delete my previous topic since I think I'm on the correct path now as to what needs to be done.
