Notebook will not boot

\015 The notebook will not boot.\302\240 I tried the recoverydisk but when attempting to boot from that, some files cannot be found and the install hangs at 57% completed. When I try to format the drive, the recovery partition cannot be created.I can run a restore "R" or a format "F".\302\240 I first tried just a restore and the process hung half way through.\302\240 I then tried to format and the initial partition could not be created.\015\012Trying to reformat from the recovery disc, it ran for about 1 hour then couldn't find files on the cd, and the following error occurred:Start error message:Error message:A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.BAD_POOL_CALLERIf this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen restart yiur computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:Check to make sure any new hardware or softwar is properly installed.\302\240 If this isa\302\240 new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.if problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. if you need to use sale mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advances startup options and then select safe mode.Technical information:*** STOP: 0x000000c2 (0x00000007, 0x00000CD4, 0x00700070, 0xE15087F8)End of error message:I don't have the option when I start the computer to "Boot to Command Prompt".\302\240 I start it and get Boot Menu F10 or BIOS Settings F2. Selecting F10 or doing nothing takes me to the system recovery and to select "R". If I don't do anything then, it displays "Press F11 to startrecovery" then the message "NTLDR is missing" "Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart".\015\012\015\012I replaced the disk drive with a new one and the same thing happens.\015\012\015\012Thanks for any assistance you can give me.\015\012\015\012Doug\015\012\015\012My laptop will not boot.

The recovery partion is hidden partiton you can not delete this partion. The only way to delete it to RUN FDISK command of the old DOS commad or Win 95.
\015\012
\015\012Here is a link for you. Go there it will make bootable disk/CD for you.
\015\012Also download the FDISK.EXE from the same link and burn it together in the boot disc.
\015\012
\015\012Then boot from the disc/CD. Run FDISK and delete all partions. And make new partitions of your choice.
\015\012
\015\012Then reboot with your OS CD which you want to install. And install your OS.

Hello ,

Its ur cd-rom problem ... clean the lens using lens cleaner ... and try again ... there is no chances of hanging in between even wen the cd is clean!!!
And still if u cant do it ... try removing ur hard disk and connect to other system and backup the imp data and format it!!! and now try installing a fresh copy!!!

Good luck!!!
