i have the above laptop with the hdd formatted, unfortunately it seems the diagnostic partition has also been wiped. i initially tried to partition the hdd after it had been formatted by using fdisk, but the message i recieved after typing fdisk at the dos prompt was'no fixed disks present'. also after the machine boots up i get a message saying 'non- system disk or disk error', but there is no floppy in the drive, which is the usual reson for this. Does anyone know what exactly if any i can download from compaq and what to do to reinstall this diagnostic partition.
