Windows XP-Packard Bell - Unable to create partitions

October 2017



Issue


I want to restore Windows XP under my Packard Bell laptop, using the Master CD. During the operation, I'm getting the following messages:

GLUE PARTS MANAGER  
V1.06  


# SOURCEPATH : >Q:\PARTS\<  
# GLUE ARGUMENT : ><  

# INIT GLUE PARTS LIST  

  • READING EXT HS
- ERROR WHILE CHECKING GLUE PARTS LIST : 1 - Press any key to continue . . .
  • Pressing a key generates an error message.

Solution

  • When the restoration program is ;aunch, press ESC
  • Type: format c:/v:HDD
  • Once finished, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete
  • The PC will restart again
  • Cancel the restoration and go to DOS
  • Type: Q:
  • Type: reloadhs.bat
  • Type: cd drivers
  • Type: tattoo/createdmifromhs (for a Desktop) or tattoo/createhsfromdmi (for a Laptop)
  • Press Ctlr + Alt + Delete
