Hi all i`ve got a problem with tiny pc i`m trying to do a factory restore i have the original disk but keep getting error message #1833 ONE(AND ONLY ONE) PARTITION MUST BE SELECTED
is there anyway i can scan my hard drive for errors . windows will not start so can i do it from a win 98 boot disk.

Try pressing F11 or maybe the delete key on startup,this should get you into the recovery partition.

After selecting the restore/recovery option you may need the disc.

Or go into the bios and change the boot order to boot from the cd drive.

i have the tiny master cd it goes in factory reset in progress then a error message comes up and will not continue error message #1833 ONE(AND ONLY ONE) PARTITION MUST BE SELECTED

Is this after you have entered the partition ? via F11 or the delete key ?

after its starts the factory reinstal then stops with the error message dose the hard drive need wiping or could it just be faulty ?

Are you trying to insert the recovery disc and go from that or are you entering the partition first and then selecting the option you require ?

Have you tried booting from the disc...insert the disc and reboot the pc,the disc should kick in right away.

Is this an xp machine or 98

Do you have the windows disc...not the recovery disc !

ths recovery disc starts straight away but stops ant the above error message .this is a xphome pc brought from tiny . i only win 98se and would even go back to this just to get it up and running again

Looking at your message,you will have to try the partition on the harddrive by pressing F11 or the delete key maybe a different key.

Then select an option: restore to factory settings,you will then be asked to insert the disc.

Will the systen boot into windows at all ?

If so,try sfc /scannow in the run box from the start menu.
