I am using the system cd's i received with my notebook to restore it to its original state.
I boot with factory cd's and it then warns me that i am about to format all data and restore notebook to original state.
I enter to confirm and receive the following error "Failed to clear MBRite to sector 0 of fixed disc 1-- Disk write protected GDISK (E) Cannot reinitialize masterboot record -- disk write protected"
thanx
