I have a Medion computer from ALDIs that I am trying to restore to factory settings. I have reformatted C:, reinstalled Windows XP SP1 and booted from the support CD. I entered E for English but get the following message in German:
Festplatte ist fur HDCOPY schreibgeschutz, bitte erst freigeben. - (with umlauts). Can anyone tell me what it is saying, please?
That's the way it already is set up. Medion supplies an "Application & Support CD" and the manual on "Carrying out a Restore" says: Insert the Support-CD and reboot the PC Select the option Start from CD-ROM In the restore menu which now appears, select 1 and follow the on-screen instructions. The PC restarts to its original factory seetings.
When I select 1, there's all sorts of "are you sure" type messages eventually arriving at the German message at the top of this thread. It is in DOS, not windows and we still do not know what that German message means. Festplatte I don't know. Ist fur means, "is for". schreib means "Write". geschutzt I don't know. bitte erst means "please first". freigeben I don't know.
