A friend of mine asked me to help him fix his HP laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium on it
I was told before i received it that the hard drive was replaced and they could not get the reinstall of vista to complete
I was able to install vista via the HP recovery cd that came with the computer, I did it twice actually
However, when I go into my computer, the hard drive only reads as a total of 24gb - I downloaded a program by paragon which helps back up systems, just for the benefit that it would show me how the hard drive is partitioned, not to use the actual software
It showed me there was a 24gb section of the disk, and there was another partition at 441gb +/-
I cant save anything to the computer because its showing the HD as full, since it only thinks there is 24gb
Does any of this make sense and how do i fix this? I do not need the hard drive partitioned, but how do i make it so its the total size of the HD?
