Error 1327 Invalid Drive G:\

Q: Error 1327 Invalid Drive G:\

Hey all, I like to think myself a pretty savvy techie, but this problem is really messing with me.

Two day ago, while trying to install a Team Fortress 2 update, I got this error, and figured it something as easy as uninstalling and reinstalling steam. However, Even when uninstalling it through Control panel -> remove programs, I recieved the error, and ended up uninstalling it manually. Now I am stuck trying to install Steam and I keep getting the same error and have no clue what to do.

I only have a C, D, and E drives, never used a G drive on this computer, so I have no clue how the install path would be changed to G. Any help would be appreciated, and rewarded with cookies.

A: Error 1327 Invalid Drive G:\

As i've read through numerous forums, It looks like this is an issue that can occur with installing multiple applications, and I assume it is as easy as changing a G:\ to a C:\ , but I have no clue where.

I have had a problem reinstalling Office 2003. The setup starts, then presents an error message Error 1327. Invalid Drive: H:\

I am running a Raid 0 Configuration on C.

I have tried the microsoft suggested process, Article ID: 873301

A:Error 1327 Invalid Drive:H:\

You can try downloading the Local Installation Source Tool for MSoffice 2003. It can be found by following this document:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/of...001140236.aspx

and downloading the actual tool from here:
http://www.microsoft.com/office/orkarchive/2003ddl.htm

Basically it allows you to change your current installation source or cache to a different drive or directory.
You will need your Office2003 CD.

I clicked the little icon with the green arrow at the bottom of my screen when I was removing my external hard drive, but I guess I removed the wrong one. I removed F: as well and I'm not sure what that was. I didn't think anything of it until a few days hours later when I tried to install Adobe photoshop elements and when I run the setup wizard, before it can even start, it gives me the "Error 1327.Invalid Drive: F:\" message and I can't install the program. Can someone help me resolve this? Thanks!

hi,

i tried to install football manager today on my win xp service pack 2 machine.
it won't install because i keep getting the error message "error 1327. invalid drive E:\".
i tried google and found out that this can happen when the drive letter of a disk is changed for some reason e.g. installing a new hard drive and the drive letters are changed.
i bought an external hard drive lately so i am thinking that after installing it one of my other drives letters were changed. i think my cd rom was changed from a E:\ to a D:\.

i then read how to change the letter of the drive.
however i went into control panel -> administrive tools -> computer management.
but i cannot find disk management within this.
i need to get into disk management to change the drive letter.
can anyone help me with this please!!

thanks for any help in advance!

Win 7. Started by having trouble with Excel 2010 so decided to uninstall Office 2010 using IOBit. During deep cleaning cycle removal the program froze and I had to close it. Office appeared to be gone, but then the error appeared - every time I open ANY program including Chrome. It usually appears twice and must be cancelled and then the program will load. I was able to re-install Office but of course the annoying error appears when opening those programs too.

I have tried every cure I could find on the internet up to now including looking for Q in a bunch of registry areas and some cmd prompts to remove or repace Q. Cannot find Q in the registry and the cmd prompt alway say no such drive exists. Need a different approach, can you help?

To change a drive letter you would generally go into Admin Tools under control panel and then click on computer management. All your drives should be listed under Storage and if you right click on the letter you itself you should have the ability to change the letter or path.

Hi

I have just had a new motherboard & processor put in and am running XP. I had 2003 Office and was using 2007 MSOutlook quite successfully.

I opened a word doc and found I needed to get a new set of registration keys which I did over the phone. NPS works fine.

Then I opened MS Outlook 2007 and it refused to load gave me a message Error 1327 Invalid Drvie D:\
So I decided to use Outlook 2003 and got the same message ~
Now I cannot use either email program and updates refuse to install ~My back up email is Incredimail.

I have googled and read some fixes but you have to buy them also read about the LISTools and tried to follow that but when I follow the instructions on that it fails to extract says not enough disk space - I have also just upgraded freom 2 x 80GB HDD to 500GB HDD so that is confusing me also.

Do I need to uninstall MS Office and reinstall or will that not solve the problem but only create another?

Would really appreciate someone helping out here.

I was reading through the forum to find out how to fix the GenericPup.x program that McAfee keeps finding (and says that it is removing) but the message that McAfee has found GenericPup.x keeps returning. Apparently, I have an outdated version of Java and I was uninstalling all of the older versions of Java when I got to the "Java 2 SDK, SE v.1.4.2_05" and tried to uninstall it. Within seconds of trying to remove this program I received an error message: "Error 1327. Invalid Drive: F:\" I have no idea how to uninstall this program because the error message (above) keeps returning. Also, I have noticed this message before when I was trying to install some malware protection software. I'm hoping that someone knows how to fix this error message and from there I think I will be able to uninstall the older versions of Java and install the latest version (and thus fixing the Generic Pup.x program). Thanks in advance for your help.

I was given an older computer by a friend and it is SUPER slow! I tried to uninstall some of the programs left by said friend via the ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS option.

A:[SOLVED] Error 1327. Invalid Drive F:/

Sounds like the programs were installed onto the F: drive which is no longer present. It's also possible the programs want the software CD in drive F: to gather information. In any case, when Add and Remove programs doesn't work, you have to do it manually. Simply delete the program folder. You may also want to search the registry for all references to the program and remove them.

I've read and tried the two previous solutions posted to this website. One sent me to the 'RegCure' website for a "free" tool that will cost me $29.95 to use.

The other solution of "start, run, type 'regedit', find HKEY__Current__User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\UserShell Folders...find any entries with an F...modify data to C:\" won't work because when I click on the appropriate line in my Vista system the line doesn't light up blue in order for me to edit it. Besides, even if I could edit them to drive C: the referenced lines are all to the W/D Diagnostics (external hard back up drive) I installed and asssigned to drive F.)

Are there any new 'free' solutions to what must be a rather common problem because I have encountered this error message with a lot of the games I've tried to load?

Hello,

When I try to install software for my digital camera called the "EOS Digital Solution Disk" I get the error message "Error 1327. Invalid Drive F:\". What does this mean?
My CD Drive is D. My only hard drive is C, F would usually be the name given to USB peripherals that I plug in, like flash drives. This happens when InstallShield is running, so I don't even get a chance to select which drive i'm installing to or from. The only option is "OK", after which, installation stops. This also happens when I try to install the latest Flash or Quicktime, etc. downloaded applications, but I had assumed that was due to bad downloads. But since it also happened with this CD, I'm worried I won't be able to install anything new.

I'm running Windows XP Professional, and I can't find information about this error pertaining to XP so I'm hoping someone here might have an idea. Thanks.

Hey Guys,My friend recently purchased a used Sony Vaio laptop that runs Windows Vista. It had a bunch of crap (mostly useless programs) so I said I'd try to help him clean it up, although I really don't know much about it as I haven't had the need or want to upgrade from XP. We were going through and uninstalling some programs, and about 1 in 5 would pop up saying Error 1327: Cannot find drive G:\. Sadly, the laptop didn't come with the manual so we couldn't look up what that meant. As far as I can tell, there isn't a drive G anywhere on that computer. Also, it didn't seem like there was any pattern in what programs gave this error when uninstalling. If you guys know how to fix this problem that would be great. If all else fails I guess we'll just wipe the hard drive and re-install vista or maybe get Win 7.

Hello!

I have a home network with 3 pc's connected together in a Lan network. One Pc is server and is in the basement and contains the userfiles of the two other pc's.
The 3 pc's is in the same homegroup.
On my pc I have a mapped drive L:\ which is on the server. I have moved my favorites to a folder on L:\, using windows manual to do that. It works nice.

But after doing that I get an errormessage saying: Error 1327 Invalide drive L:\ under installation/uninstallation or update of some programs . Lastest is Adobe Reader uppdate. But my drive L:\ is not invalide!!
Is this a windows 7 bug? Because I had no problem doing the same on XP.

A:Error 1327 invalide drive L:\

I have seen this in Windows 7 with installing and uninstalling programs whenever you change any user folders location to a mapped drive. I have found that if you set the location to the UNC path (ex. \\server\user\docs) then it will work.

I actually have all of the Windows 7 clients at my company redirecting the documents, desktop, and favorites through a group policy which sets them as the UNC path.

Greetings all,
am brand new at this so v. many apologies if this has been answered elsewhere (looked but couldn't find) having recently upgraded my HP laptop from vista to Win7 (32bit) I am having the occasional problem of adobe flash plug in crashing so I thought the best solution would be to uninstall and then re-instal it only the last section of it wont uninstall and I receive an "error1327 invalid drive F " message If it's relevant I'm also having a problem with the mute light doing it's own thing relative to the mute function and the sound some times working through the speakers ,headphones or not at all, Guess that they're related. cheers eli.

A:can't uninstall Adobe, error 1327 drive F

What is the make and model of your machine? Which version of Windows are you running (7) 64bit or 32bit? Is the drive that Adobe Flash Player was installed on before was the drive letter F: as it is now or was it under a different drive letter?

Go to Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Manager>Disk Manager post a screen shot here so we can see what partitions or drives you have and the drive letters.

I am running into an issue with users renaming files on a shared drive. When the users try to rename, they get the error "A file name can't contain any of the following characters: \ / : * ? < > |". However, neither the new or old filename contains
any of these characters, or any other invalid characters as far as I can determine, just alphanumeric characters and spaces.When they try to rename it again, it works without an issue.
I have found reports of this error being generated if the file path is too long, but all users are accessing this from a shared drive, and even if the share name is taken into account the file path and name are easily under 100 characters.
I have 3 users on 3 different systems reporting this issue, so I don't think it is user error.
The workstations are running Windows 7 Pro, SP1. The server is Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise, Service Pack 2.
The users are located at a remote site, and accessing the share over a site to site VPN. There are XP workstations at the site as well, that do not appear to be having the issue.
Any help, suggestions, or guidance is greatly appreciated!

A:Error 1327

Hi t2sincla,

I found this article that may help you. You will notice at the bottom part of the page that it offers another solution that involves you changing some registry keys. Please DON'T attempt any registry changes unless you really know what you are doing as you can do more damage than good.

If the programme that you are trying to install has hard coded the installation drive as being G:/ then there is nothing you will be able to do except by contacting the developers.

I know in most installation wizards you are given the option to 'Browse' to a different drive location (normally C:/ by default as this is usually where you OS is located).

If the above mentioned link is of no use, then please wait untill one of the more techy people visits the thread. Its a very busy forum, but they will get to you.

Afternoon all!

Any help appreciated on this!

I fitted a new DVD Writer a couple of days ago with no problems. It installed itself as Drive "G". This I changed to Drive"W" as was my old drive.

When I tried to install a program from cd last night, the install program exited with the Installer information message "Error 1327 Invalid drive G:\" when I click on OK, a Fatal Error box pops up which says Installation ended prematurely because of an error.I tried to install another prog with the same result.

The drive is showing up OK as Drive "W" and I can find no place where drive "G" is indicated.

It appears that the Windows Installer is looking for the original drive letter designated when I first installed the drive.

Can I change this?

All ideas and info appreciated!!!
On a totally different theme, if I reinstall Win XP over the original version, will I lose all my settings and have to reinstall all my progs? I'm having a few problems with the OS, and as It's been installed for about 18 months, thought a reinstall might freshen things up. I don't fancy having to reintall evrything else though.

Thanks again.

Hi Everyone,

Recently I experienced some issues with a Vista workstation at my workplace. Basically it would not boot and as a result I needed to perform some recovery options on the workstation. Although it is booting again there are some issues with the software that is installed, particularly with the .NET 1.1 installation.

When a colleague of mine accessed our SharePoint Site and attempted to perform some document uploads he was met with the following -



I determined that the issue was related to .NET and as a result started uninstalling all of the .NET packages on the workstation. I started with .NET 3.5 and progressed through .NET 2.0 - all of which uninstalled just fine.

However I am now stuck at the .NET 1.1 installation; when I attempt to repair or uninstall the installation I see the following -



Furthermore when I attempt to remove Windows Update (related to the installation) I see the following -



Drive "S" represents a valid network share, and it is the original location from which I installed the .NET 1.1 package.

I have copied and pasted the .NET 1.1 installation package from Drive "S" to the Desktop, double clicked it and attempted to repair, re-install, etc however I am met with the messages outlined above.

If anybody has any suggestions on how to overcome this issue they will be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone, here is my problem:
I barely use the DVD or CD player and a long time ago my husband wanted to watch a DVD and the DVD drive did not recognize any DVD in it. I didn't pay attention. I can play and write CDs in my CD drive, but that's all. A few days ago I was installing a program in my PC, at that time my PC started to give me an "updating Adobe Reader's" message. I tried to allow the update but it was not successful and at the time I ignored these issues because I was not in dire need to use the drive. now I think a made a mistake by not fixing it at the time. Now that I need to use the DVD player to install a program, my PC does not recognize the DVD or CD in the DVD drive.
First it gave me this message "Error 1327.Invalid Drive: [drive letter] while installing or updating Adobe CS4, Acrobat or Adobe ReaderProducts affected"; so I tried to fix it by myself and found a program online that said they would fix this problem. PerfectOptmizer, but this program just scanned for free showing me how to fix, but to fix the problem I had to buy their program, which I did, but it did NOT solve the issue, I still could not run any CD or DVD in my DVD drive, then I read the troubleshooting at my HP PC HELP & SUPPORT and it gave me this situation px.dll not found.

I've got a "little" problem that even the techs at Microsoft can't figure out, here it is: A few days ago I tried instaling a ZBOARD Merc gaming keyboard on my computer. Instead of installing, I kept getting the message "Error 1327. Invalid Drive: E:\ I ended up having to send the keyboard back as my computer doesn't have any "Drive E" Couldn't get any response from the company, but someone thought it was a problem with the keyboard being hard coded to "E" or something. Anyway, the other day I tried installing Windows Defender, and got the same message, something was up! I contacted Tech support at Microsoft but all they could come up with was a problem with the regestry, and told me to check it for anything showing a drive letter other than "C" (my main drive). I checked it out......nothing! I even checked all the other applications and installations etc. but all show drive "C" It doesen't seem to affect computer operation, I'm just afraid it will "pull" this on some other install. Anybody have any ideas on this? My OS is Windows XP.

I did a quick google search on this error and came up with this While I am not 100% this will fix your problems, Never hurts to check out all available optionsEnsure that you do not edit anything that is not specified or that you are unsure aboutMy guess is that if this isn't happening on anything else it was in fact hte software relating to your Zboard, I have looked a few myself namely for battlefield 2 2142 and one other that I can't remember, However I have never actually purchased one, So I don't have hte experience,Id attempt a different installation of any kind if you can, and if you already haven't , To prove as to whether its just that CD, or not, cause if its just that CD as I siad, Its probably related to the software in the CD you were given with the Zboard, however if it happens with another, Then, this'll be interesting..

Yes. I know there are many answers to this problem. Unfortunately I have tried as many as I can find and nothing works for me. Optimize, Defrag and Chkdsk will not work on the DVD-ROM and neither the Registry fix or the MS CD Hotfix work.

Specifically, I am trying to transfer RAW .NEF files from a backup DVD-ROM to an external NTFS USB hard drive using WIN 7. I get the above error. Strangely some of the .NEF files on that DVD have transferred properly, but not these in one specific directory, sorry two specific SUB directories. Actually the other subdirectories have .jpg and .mov files in them, so the file type is likely not the issue. Other .NEF files in other sub-directories have copied as well, so that does not seem to be the problem either. I have also tried robocopy from a Administrator-run CMD prompt and get an "Incorrect Function" error in that sub-directory. I am starting to lose hope.

It gets even more bizarre. On the DVD ROM, there are seven directories. All seven directories, and the files in them copied successfully. Three of them have sub-directories. I had thought that one of the sub-directories had copied completely, but it tuns out only 110 of the 132 files in that sub-directory copied successfully. The other 22 are giving the "Invalid" error. For the other two directories that have sub-directories, all the files in the directory copied successfully, while none of the files in the sub-directories copied successfully, although the sub-d...

Hi,

I'm getting an "Error 1327" when I try to install things on my PC.

Now I do know what it is ... basically Vista *doesn't like it* when I redirect things to my server like I could do easily under Windows XP e.g. my home network I redirect is based around a Windows 2003 domain where all 4 users have their documents made available to them centrally from shares on my server. I have a number of other facilities too but they are just file and print and a few other things so they don't appear to matter.

In order to correct the fault I simply restore the default values and the install will run fine but I am forced to ask why I have to? This isn't Windows Vista Home, it's Business and it happily integrates with a domain so why can't I install things on it when it is running as a full domain client ... if it can't do that then really I think I may have to go a-running back to XP because that is really, really pants!

We are in the process of upgrading our server and I upgraded a workstation from XP home to XP Pro. Before the upgrade, this workstation was having strange problems - installed Ad-Aware & Spyware Doctor, everything okay. Looks like a previous install of Norton was corrupted because there were two (Norton Antivirus 2003 & 2005) installs and neither one was functioning. The error when trying to install updates, or Norton for that matter, is Error 1327. Invalid Drive: H:\. I followed the directions from Symantec to fix that, then I got Error 1324. The folder path 'My Pictures' contains an invalid character. I figured that after I fixed this error that I would get another and another for each path, so I went back and renamed the cd-rom to D, like it was before. I continued to research and it looks like I have a .net framework problem but nothing seems to work to fix it! Should I just wipe hard drive and reinstall everything? Problem is, I can't do it during work hours as the guy needs his computer...oh well! The only update I am having trouble installing is .net framework 1.1 sp1 and it tells me that the upgrade patch cannot be installed by the windows installer because the program to be upgraded may be missing or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program - errors 0x66A and 0x663. Any ideas anyone? I'd really appreciate any help. Thanks

Hey, I've been having the same problem too! Any news on resolving this issue yet? I've been having this .net framwork update 1.1 failures since 2 months ago and while digging to fix my problem, I found that you and I aren't the only ones w/ these issues * Refer to Windows Update Newsgroup for details*

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkID=9581.

In the beginning, my .net update would read it is in installing process for hours yet w/ any progress. Eventually, I found out some weeks later that the original update download had "zero" info; there was no .Net update downloaded on my computer but this particular folder must have been within my computer registry and therefore, Microsoft Window Updates kept on detecting an empty folder - causing this Installation failure.

WOA - I wouldn't go so far as to wipe your drive and/or do reinstallation ( the whole 9 yards) since there are so many of us sharing the same problem. Relevantly, I am starting to conclude that these .Net Update are "NOT" from this side but the other --The Microsoft .Net Framwork 1.1 updates itself. Do as the Old saying: ]" Don't fix it if it is not broken" and it seems your system is doing fine!

A:Re-directing Documents to Network Drive casues 1327 Installer Errors

Hi Dave. . .

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support!

I've dealt with somewhat similar errors before - but not one involving a network drive. Regardless of that, let's see what we can do here.

First, I'd like to take a look at the contents of a registry key.

Bring up an ELEVATED command prompt START | type cmd.exe | right-click on cmd.exe up top | select Run as Administrator | answer the UAC prompt - Continue/enter Admin password

Now... copy and paste the following into the "DOS" command prompt box - EXACTLY as it appears -

reg query "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders" > C:\error1327a.txt & start notepad c:\error1327a.txt

If you have problems with the paste using ctrl-v, then right-click on the top of the "DOS" command prompt box then select "Edit" then select paste.

Either way, a notepad should appear with the registry key contents inside it - if unfamiliar to you, you will see "%" signs and recognizable folder names as well as letter/numbers mixed together. This is OK. Then copy all and paste results in your next post and I'll take a look.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

1. Make sure that you have Administrator rights in Windows.
2. Go to this page KB290301
3. Halfway down is the download link to grab the Installer Cleanup Utility package.
4. Once you have downloaded the file, double click it and select "Run". This will install the package.
5. Go to C:\Program Files\Windows Installer Clean Up and double click "msicuu.exe"
6. In the list of programs that appear in the new window, choose (All Users) Falcon 4.0: Allied Force .... and at the bottom hit "remove".
This should allow you to first uninstall and then reinstall AF correctly."

Before the hard drive on which it resided failed, I had my documents located apart from the OS on partition F: Currently, no partition has this drive letter.

This has caused problems with installation of a couple of programs, the last of which is Nero KwikMedia, which since it can't find it, as indicated in the screenshot, fails installation.

When I check the current location of my libraries, they are all on C:, as there were originally. Something is still pointing to F:...how do I determine what, and how do I change it?

A:Invalid Drive F:

Error 1327 usually means an invalid drive letter. This is usually caused by an invalid data key in the registry. You can change the drive letter as follows;

Change, add, or remove a drive letter

Last night i was trying to format my c drive with a boot disk. After the bios is set to boot from the cdrom, it loads up to the screen where i get an A:>. After i get there i cant get into the c:. If i type in A:>format c: , it says invalid drive specification. I can change the A to D: but still cant format the c drive. I should mention that i have 2 hard drives, c & d. Should i run fdisk first, or is something else wrong in there. I just replaced the motherboard last week and want a clean install of windows.

I was having errors and other problems with my computer so I reformated my hard drive. Everything went okay. Now when I turn on the computer a message comes up asking for the boot disk. I put in the boot disk and goes to the "A" prompt. I then type C: to access my hard drive but the message "Invalid drive specification" comes up. I thought the hard drive might be bad but I put the hard drive into another working computer and it works fine, also I tried another good hard drive but I got the same message. I checked all connections. I tried using FDISK but a message comes up saying "No fixed disks". When I boot up with my Windows 98SE cd and type "setup" it starts but a message comes up "Cannot create a temporary directory. If you have HPFS or NTFS installed on your hard drive you will need to create a MS-DOS boot partition to set up Windows. After I formated I was able to get to the C prompt and type "dir" at first and it showed Command.com. but not anymore. The computer is a Compaq Deskpro 2000. I can't get into the BIOS because I need certain diskettes to do so. Pressing F10 when booting up does not work no matter how fast or how many time I press it. Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:invalid drive specification

For whatever reason it appears that you lost your Command.COM file. There are no System files on the Disk and it is not boot'able.

Do FORMAT C: /S

to put the Boot files BACK on the HD.

Don't understand WHY you need diskettes to get into the BIOS?????????

Does the HD always come up in the IDE indentification phase of the Bootup?
Are you positive that the Ribbon Cable and Power Cable are GOOD and secure?

Hi,
I have a little problem. 1 of my computers is P4 1.4 ,1gig Ram, 160gig and 40gig HDs. I have windows installed etc and it all works fine, but when I boot into DOS, I cant view my HDs and my CDROMs and DVD are set to Y: and X:. So I cant install windows because its saying "Cannot find a place for a swap file"

Any idea what might be the problem? Because when I run fdisk, it can see the HDs and partitions. But in DOS it doesnt work.

Thanks

I received an old computer that had files missing in Win 95. I ran format c: (no /s) on it then installed win98. Then realized that the modem and all other hardware wouldn't operate with win98 ---so, I ran format C: again (still no /s). This time it took days to format! Kept trying to retrieve something.

Now I have bought a new win95 disk and want to install it. I can get it to the point (using a boot disk for win95, it won't use 95a or 95b) where it says "cannot create a temp directory. If you have HPFS or NTFS installed on your hard drive, you will need to create an MS-DOS Boot Partition to set up Windows."

The main problem seems to be that when I try to switch to c: drive, I get the "invalid drive specification" message. My floppy is operating as A: and the CDROM is D: --I've tried other letters as you recommended to others with similar problems but no luck on that. Have I destroyed this hard drive or how do I get it to recognize the C drive. It seems to recognize it in loading but won't let me go to that drive. Help!!!

I'm trying to wipe my hard drive clean and install a fresh copy of XP. This is what I've done:

1. Put in a floppy, right clicked on A:, clicked format, and then make MS-DOS boot disc.

2. I added FDISK to the bootdisk.

3. When I get to the A: prompt I type D: to make sure that my CD Drive can be read. But instead of giving me the D: prompt I get the 'ol invalid drive specification message! Please help!
 

A:D: Invalid drive specification...HELP!

I take it you cant make the BIOS search for d: on boot order?
If you can, you can perform a full format with the windows xp disk (recovery) on boot.
Anyhow, when in A:\ are you typing:
cd d:\ or just:
d:

If you are just typing d: then technically the command is d: diretory in A:\ drive, which doesn't exist.

Case: My hard disk is 500 gb. It has two factory (Dell) installed partitions: #1 with 465 gb and #0 <= 35gb.
After the HDD had stopped to work diagnostic tool Victoria produced message 'Invalid drive geometry' for partition 0.
I believe that partition 0 contained a factory image to re-install Windows 7.
Partition 1 looks okay.
Questions: How to fix this geometry if it is possible?
Should I format the entire disk?
Should these 35 gb in partition 0 be forgotten and then how to format just partition 1 only?
Should the hard disk be replaced?

A:What does 'Invalid drive deometry' mean?

Hello boltusha. Welcome to the forum.

That message can be given because:
The BIOS (CMOS) does not report the same disk statistics that the drive does.
Bad data or power cable, or incorrectly attached cables.
Power problem (power supply)
Incorrect jumpers (ancient problem, does not apply to SATA drives)
Failed hard drive.
So first, test and re-seat all connections. Listen for the drive to spin up when you start the computer. Listen for any unusual noises. Unplug power to all unneeded drives and components (just as a test).

Second, perform a ClearCMOS procedure. This will clear the statistics in the BIOS and make the system re-discover them.

Third, test the drive in another computer. See if the problem follows the drive.

Formatting: I doubt that a geometry problem will be caused by formatting. Geometry is a basic count of the size of the drive in Cylinders, Heads, and Sectors. The file system (format) comes after all that.

Keep in mind that formatting will destroy all data on the disk or partition you format. So if you have data you need to keep, don't format or initialize the disk until you have back ups of that data.

Partition 0 probably contained the Dell recovery partition. This will format the hard drive (see above) and restore the computer to the condition it was in when you first got it. You do not need this partition or recovery provided you have:
Created the Recovery Disks (which perform the same function, just from DVDs, not the hard disk)
Create your own disk ... Read more

I have what I think is a usual “Invalid partition table” problem.
The other day we had a “power glitch”. When I rebooted after it…I got “invalid partition table” after the boot screen. The next day I borrowed a friend’s machine and looked it up. What I found said unplug all USB devices (except mouse and keyboard).
Then reboot when the boot screen finishes press f8 and get to the recovery menu.
I did that. However I was not quick enough to press f8 instead of recovery menu I got system information. Then it booted into Windows with no problems.
With further investigation I discovered that it would boot into windows as long as the USB devices were unplugged. But once windows started I could plug the devices back in with no porblem
I know this is not normal but my question is is the problem in the HD or the US drives
