Boot Disk

First you need to prepare the boot disk, I am assuming it already has windows 98 system files on it. If you don't have a disk with windows 98 system files on it then you need to create one. I would recommend using a standard windows 98 floppy such as one that can be downloaded Here
http://www.postbox.w...uk/boot98se.exe
- simply run the exe file to create the disk.
Once created you need to copy some files across to the disk from master CD 1. These are detailed below.

* copy <cdrom>\drivers\tattoo.exe to the floppy
* copy <cdrom>\drivers\shelhs.dll to the floppy
* copy <cdrom>\exths.exe to the floppy (extended hidden sector systems only)

That's it! your tattoo floppy disk is created. Move
=============================
Extended Hidden Sector Method

Now you have found exths.exe on your master CD 1, and you have created the handy tattoo floppy. You can now make a backup of your Extended Hidden Sector which can then be restored onto your new drive using a few commands. Here's how.

1. Boot from the tattoo floppy you have just created
2. Type a:\tattoo /exportbin:a:\tattoo.bin and press enter.
3. Type a:\exths /exportextbin:a:\exths.bin and press enter.
4. Remove the floppy disk, your extended hidden sector is now backed up.
5. Change your hard drive for the new one and set it to Master. Partition & format if you wish.
6. Boot back up from the tattoo floppy.
7. Type a:\tattoo /importbin:a:\tattoo.bin and press enter. You should see a confirmation that the hidden sectors have been updated.
8. Type a:\exths /importextbin:a:\exths.bin and press enter. You should see two confimrations on screen that the HS and the EHS have been updated. You computer now has a valid Extended Hidden Sector.
9. At this point it is also wise to type a:\tattoo /createdmifromhs and press enter.
10. Boot the computer with the PB Recovery floppy (usually red) and Master CD 1 in the drives. Enjoy
=========================================================
===============================================
here is a floppy for you down load to desk top
have a new formatted floppy handy, double click on icon on desk top
to make a bootable floppy
http://www.postbox.w...TattooExths.exe
boot with that floppy it will say press any key to boot from Cd/DVD press
any key and it boots from floppy.
do not choose any options and it will get to A: prompt A:\>
at a: prompt type export and press enter on key board
this will copy Tattoo information and Exths info from your old HDD
to the floppy in 2 files TATTOO.BIN and EXTHS.BIN
then replace your hDD Format it as Pri DOS partition Call Vol lable HDD
then
boot with same floppy and at A: prompt type
import and press enter on the key board.
At this point it is also wise to type a:\tattoo /createdmifromhs and press enter
...............
it should work as it is according to Richard Lindley's instruction.
http://www.richardli...uk/pbtattoo.htm
==========================
http://www.boxpost.o...dpelltattoo.exe
this does not work as xp is NTFS and the DOS does not see the partition
to write tattoo.bin exths.bin files back to HDD it must be first prepared as FAT32 and labled HDD
so if you have not got floppy use usb stick in windows to copy the 2 files
then when you change HDD drive it must be prepared as FAT 32 so that it can be seen by DOS and
files can be imported
first notice it is packardPelltattoo.exe and not packardbelltattoo.exe
this is an iso executable Size approx 1.69MB
made for computers without floppy drive
How to use packarpelltattoo.exe
===============================
down load to desk top
put a CD-R in Cd rewriter drive
double click on icon on desktop to make a bootable CD
(no action from user is necessary)
boot with that Cd at menu choose USB 1.1
to get a prompt
-------------------------------

packard Bell computers have 2 folder on hard drive
tattoo.bin
exths.bin

these are binary files that containthe detail of tattoo
and the hidden sector details

when you want to change the hard disk
first copy the 2 bin files to floppy or USB memory stick
floppy
=====
put floppy in drive and type
exportfloppy
this copies the2 files to floppy

USB stick
========
boot with usb stick in
and notice the drive letter assigned to it
then choose usb 1.1 from menu
then at prompt type
expotd

if USB letter is E
type
exportE


change hard drive
and then
type
imortfloppy
or
imortD
or
importE
depending on the letter assigned to USB stick

What to check in the hidden sector and how to enter details.



The hidden sector is required by the recovery CD’s to re install the OS and software that was originally shipped with a Packard Bell computer.

If the first page of data is inputted incorrectly, corrupt or blank, the restore process will halt with the error message ‘Disque dur protégé’

Follow the boxes below.

To run the Tattoo progam, you need to shut down Widows and be at a DOS prompt.

If you have to copy files to the hard drive you need to have shellhs.dll and tattoo.exe on the computers hard drive.
Run what is listed below:-

C:\ Press enter
C:\drivers Press enter
Now run one of the two programs
C:\drivers hscenter/MASTERCD return (Laptops only)
C:\drivers tattoo/MASTERCD return Below is what will appear on screen.
or if you got CD
Q:\drivers tattoo /MASTERCD

Password is PBE98 (use capital letters).

The information you input here must be completely accurate and the details must be the same as in SONSYS. This is a LEGAL requirement, if you amend software details it is YOU who could be prosecuted by Microsoft, not the customer.


Init String:- Entered automatically by the PC
Part Number:- From the SN label on the back of the PC
Model Name:- From the SN label on the back of the PC
Format No.:- Is on the MCD in the Directory PB_FOR.VER
Serial Number:- From the SN label on the back of the PC
Format Switch. Club=10, Pulsar=20, Platinum=30 Laptop=50

The Next screens are almost as important as this one. If you select wrong information here, when the customer comes to use the PC, he will have wrong on line documentation and wrong drivers loaded.
All screens will appear, if the computer does not have an item listed, then select none.

Select DSG If you are not sure about the details:- check in SONSYS or phone the PB Dealer line


You can create a new boot floppy from the Master CD or inside the Drivers directory to now restore the system.

Hermes 20000001& Reno 22000001.
Hidden sectors work on the same principal

In the Drivers directory you will see the program file ‘HSCENTER’ What you have to do with these formats is clear the hidden sector before it can be re programmed:- run the following below
At the C:>Drivers type in the following
HSCENTER/INITHSPRETEST press enter
This clears the hidden sector. Now type in the following
HSCENTER/MASTERCD

Continue as listed in the beginning for inputting the correct info into the Hidden sector
**When entering the format code, with hscenter you must proceed the 8 digit number with 55**

Disque dur protege – First try the following
C:\Drivers TATTOO /NBROFPROCESS :
This updates the HS so the software now knows to set it self up from the preload on the hard drive and not from an external sauce

If this fails to work you will need to Tattoo the system again.

In most of the machines ‘Drivers Directory’ you have Peek tools to check the information contained in the BIOS, HDD and Floppy disk
============================
What is the hidden sector

A hidden sector consists of two parts:
The "Tattoo" part
The "Extended Hidden Sector" part
The Tattoo part is the software protection system required by Microsoft. The Tattoo is only used to store the serial number and the manufacturer string. It is on the hard disk as well as in the DMI part of the BIOS. The Tattoo in the BIOS should contain the manufacturers string "PBE" (Packard Bell Europe) and the serial number of the system. The Tattoo on the hard disk has to contain the same serial number as in the DMI for the restoration process to begin correctly. The Tattoo can also be checked on the Master CD Bootdiskette, where it is found in the form of a BIN file. It functions as a backup Tattoo in case the hard disk Tattoo is missing or damaged, or the serial number in it does not match the serial number in the BIOS.

The Extended Hidden Sector part is too big to fit in the DMI. It can only be found on the hard disk and on the Master CD Bootdiskette as a BIN file. The Extended Hidden Sector contains part numbers for software, drivers and "glue parts" necessary for the restoration of the system. Glue parts are the tools needed for initialising and formatting the hard disk before the installation of Windows and applications can start. OEMSETUP reads the part numbers in the Extended Hidden Sector and finds the matching folder on the Master CD or hidden partition. From there, it will run a setup or a tool, installing a game, a driver or just repartitioning the hard disk. It is not only used for restoring the system with the Master CD, but also in production, where the hidden partition is made according to the Extended Hidden Sector.

Management tools for the hidden sector on an eMove system

There are two management tools:
EXTHS.EXE
TATTOO.EXE
The command line switches determine what happens; possible switches are:
For EXTHS:


/RESTORE
Syntax: EXTHS /RESTORE

This option allows the creation of a completely new Extended Hidden Sector. It requires the presence of the EXTHS.DAT file in the same folder. On an eMove system, this option can only be used from a generic Master CD because it is the only place where you can find the EXTHS.DAT file.


/IMPORTEXTBIN
Syntax: EXTHS/IMPORTEXTBIN:A:\EXTHS.BIN
where EXTHS.BIN is an example of the file name

This option restores the Extended Hidden Sector from a binary file containing all the data. In the absence of the EXTHS.DAT file, it is a very easy way to restore the Extended Hidden Sector of a system. The EXTHS.BIN file has to be present and correct. This is typically found on the original Master CD Bootdiskette. The BIN file is also created when you create a new Master CD Bootdiskette with DOSFLOP.COM.


/EXPORTEXTBIN
Syntax: EXTHS/EXPORTEXTBIN:A:\EXTHS.BIN
where EXTHS.BIN is an example of the file name

This option is used to create a binary file containing the data of the Extended Hidden Sector as a backup. It is automatically executed when creating a new Master CD Bootdiskette or when creating Master CDs from the hidden partition, so the created file EXTHS.BIN can be found on those.


For TATTOO:


Can be executed without options. The menu that comes up will allow you to modify the data in the Tattoo. A missing or incorrect manufacturer string and serial number can be corrected manually this way.


/CREATEDMIFROMHS
Syntax: TATTOO /CREATEDMIFROMHS

This option copies the Tattoo from the hard disk to the BIOS, restoring the necessary manufacturer string and serial number.
Note: This option has to be executed without any memory-managers loaded, so boot with <F8> to "Safe Mode Command Prompt Only" to use this option.


/IMPORTBIN
Syntax: TATTOO/IMPORTBIN:A:\TATTOO.BIN
where TATTOO.BIN is an example of the file name

This option restores the Tattoo on the hard disk using a binary file containing all the Tattoo data. The TATTOO.BIN file has to be present and correct. This is typically found on the original Master CD Bootdiskette. The BIN file is also created when you create a new Master CD Bootdiskette with DOSFLOP.COM.


/EXPORTBIN
Syntax: TATTOO/EXPORTBIN:A:\TATTOO.BIN
where TATTOO.BIN is an example of file name

This option is used to create a binary file containing the Tattoo data from the hard disk as a back up. It is automatically executed when creating a new Master CD Bootdiskette or when creating Master CDs from the hidden partition, so the created file TATTOO.BIN can be found on those.
Restoring the hidden sector
Restoring the hidden sector from the format on the hard drive:

If the format is still on the hard drive and this one is still bootable, the necessary tools can be found in the folder C:\DRIVERS. As the file EXTHS.DAT is not there, the option /RESTORE cannot be used, but all other options are available. A new Master CD Bootdiskette can be created from C:\DRIVERS\MCDBF\DOSFLOP.COM.


Restoring the hidden sector from the hidden partition:

Booting from the Master CD Bootdiskette will allow you to access the hidden partition (unhidden, it becomes drive D:) after the Master CD Bootdiskette has rebooted the system. The tools are in the D:\DRIVERS folder. As the file EXTHS.DAT is not there, the option /RESTORE cannot be used, but all other options are available. The BIN files containing the backed-up Extended Hidden Sector- and Tattoo data can be found in the root of D: A new Master CD Bootdiskette can be created from D:\DRIVERS\MCDBF\DOSFLOP.COM.


Restoring the hidden sector from the self-made Master CD:

The self-made Master CD contains the tools and the two BIN files needed to restore the hidden sector from the original, eliminating the need to make complicated choices from the hardware list, and the possibility of making a mistake. Everything can be found in the root of Q:\ and the tools are also in the Q:\DRIVERS folder. As the EXTHS.DAT file is not present, the option /RESTORE cannot be used. To make things easier, an extra batch file was created, RELOADHS.BAT. It runs two commands:

\DRIVERS\EXTHS.EXE /IMPORTEXTBIN:\EXTHS.BIN \DRIVERS\TATTOO.EXE /IMPORTBIN:\TATTOO.BIN

These commands restore the entire hidden sector on the hard disk with the BIN files from the root of Q:\ while the tools are executed from the Q:\DRIVERS folder. All you need to do after this to restore all hidden sectors everywhere is to run TATTOO/CREATEDMIFROMHS for the BIOS and the system is "retattooed" completely.


Restoring the hidden sector from the generic Master CD:

The generic Master CD from Packard Bell is the only medium that contains the EXTHS.DAT file necessary to run EXTHS/RESTORE. If all other BIN files are unavailable and the hidden sectors are gone or corrupted, the generic Master CD is the last resort. The EXTHS.DAT file is in the root of the CD so run the option EXTHS/RESTORE from Q:\ and all other options from Q:\DRIVERS.
Possible problems and their recommended solutions
At boot from the Master CD Bootdiskette:


"This Computer has no valid information"
"Not a Packard Bell computer"
"Invalid configuration".

Or when starting SmartRestore:


"No valid information"

This message indicates the Tattoo information in the BIOS is missing or damaged, especially the manufacturer string. Check if the Tattoo information on the hard disk is still correct. If not, import the correct information from the BIN file first, using TATTOO/IMPORTBIN followed by the path and name of the TATTOO.BIN file. Use TATTOO/CREATEDMIFROMHS to copy the correct(ed) Tattoo to the DMI.


At boot from the Master CD Bootdiskette:


"No valid serial number"

No two matching serial numbers were found in the Tattoos on the hard disk, the BIOS and the Master CD Bootdiskette. Run TATTOO without parameters to check and correct the serial number on the hard disk, then run TATTOO/CREATEDMIFROMHS to copy the correct Tattoo to the BIOS, then run DOSFLOP to create a new Master CD Bootdiskette containing the correct TATTOO.BIN file.
Extra:

The Saturn motherboard has a jumper (JFSH1) on it that write-protects the BIOS. The jumper protects the BIOS so well that it not only prevents any applications from writing, but also reading the DMI information. This causes the same error messages and symptoms as if the Tattoo information is corrupted or missing in the BIOS.
The usual tools cannot solve the problem because the information in the BIOS is correct, and also because the tools cannot write to the BIOS with this jumper protecting it. This is solved by removing jumper JFSH1. For customers who insist on removing the jumper themselves, refer them to the motherboard section of the Electronic Library for the location of JFSH1. A shortcut can be found on the desktop. The library is automatically installed by inserting the "Install me First" CD.

The Luna and Florida motherboards and indeed most other motherboards have no such jumper but can display similar problems when trying to Tattoo them.
Flashing to the latest BIOS version will usually correct this situation for all mot

Use reloadhs to make a new Hidden Sector



Import the BIN-files from the Non-DOS Partition to the Primary Partition with Reloadhs

Instructions:
Boot the computer with the Packard Bell Recovery Bootdisk.
When the message show "this computer has no valid information" or says "Welcome to the recovery program of Packard Bell" press the <Esc> key.
Now you will see the DOS prompt of the RAM drive, which will have a letter assigned to it. Now go to the backup partition by typing the letter that, in the alphabet, precedes the RAM drive letter and press <Enter>.
Type: RELOADHS and press <Enter>. The BIN-files, which hold the content of the hidden sector will now be imported to the primary partition. The customer can try to restore his/her system again with the Packard Bell Recovery Process.
Create a new Packard Bell Recovery Bootdisk, in order to do so run "x:\drivers\mcdbf\dosflop.com", where x is the drive letter of the Backup Partition.
Information:
Reloadhs.bat runs the following two commands:
X:\drivers\exths /importextbin:\exhts.bin
X:\drivers\tattoo /importbin:\tattoo.bin
(where X is the drive letter of the Backup Partition)

What is TS.BAT and how does it work?



Situation In this article you will find a description of the utility TS.BAT: what it is, what you can do with it, and how it works.
Details The utility TS.BAT requires certain components from the Master CD or the backup partition!
Solution Table of Contents
Introduction
DOS Commands
Hardware Analysis
Recovery Options
Reinstall SmartRestore
Introduction
TS.BAT is a utility on the Recovery Bootdisk or Bootable Recovery CD 1. It's made to help phone technicians and customers with the troubleshooting process. It starts with a menu with several options that will perform a number of standard commands in a faster and user-friendlier way then typing all the commands manually. It is a DOS-based utility with a simple DOS-based interface.

The utility is compressed on the Bootdisk/BootCD, so you will have to go through the normal booting process from the Bootdisk/BootCD in order to extract the files needed for TS.BAT. After extraction, it can be found on the RAM-drive (usually D: or, on systems with a backup partition, E:). Since a path to the RAM drive is made during boot, it does not matter from which drive you start the utility, just exit the OEMSETUP menu, type TS and press <Enter> (running TS.BAT will also load Doskey and the mouse driver).

The main menu consists of 4 items and the exit option:



You can select these menu options by typing the number in front of them.
DOS Commands
The DOS COMMANDS menu contains the following items.


TREECRC /V /L:%CDLETTER%:\CRCLOG.DAT %CDLETTER%:
Looks complex, but it does exactly the same as the option in the graphical recovery menu that checks the Master CDs for errors (the CRC-check). Useful when the graphical menu does not load and you suspect the Master CDs to be faulty.

Note: TS.BAT will automatically fill in the appropriate drive parameters for this command!


EDIT
Edit is a text editor, so you can change or view text files (TXT), batch files (BAT), and some system files (SYS) like the CONFIG.SYS file.


FDISK
This is the tool to remove or create partitions on a hard disk drive. Bear in mind that removing a partition also deletes all data in that partition. Fdisk cannot create NTFS partitions and it will display an existing NTFS partition as a non-DOS partition. It is possible, however, to remove the NTFS partition by removing the non-DOS partition. A hidden backup partition will also show up as a non-DOS partition, an unhidden backup partition will appear as a FAT16 partition of 2 GB or larger. So please be careful when deleting a partition manually.


FDISK /MBR
This command is used to refresh the hard disk drive's MBR (Master Boot Record). This is the part of the hard disk drive responsible for the boot process. This section is vulnerable to viruses (MBR viruses) that are programmed to load themselves into memory before the operating system. The command FDISK /MBR will overwrite the MBR with a backup MBR maintained for these situations. If the virus did not infect the backup MBR as well, this procedure will remove the virus. When the system does not boot from the hard disk drive, but the hard disk drive is accessible when booting from a Bootdisk, then this command might fix the problem. Running the command does not harm the data on the hard disk drive nor the Hidden Sector and TS.BAT will prompt for confirmation first.

Note: do not use this command on Windows XP systems with a working NTFS partition, as it will mess up the boot process.


SCANDISK /ALL /AUTOFIX
Runs Scandisk on all available hard disk drives and fixes any errors found automatically. It does not perform a surface scan!

Note: This option will not work on an NTFS partition.


SCANDISK /ALL /SURFACESCAN
It will perform the same action as above, but with a surface scan. Hard disk drive problems will not be fixed automatically but it will prompt the user for each error it encounters.

Note: This option will not work on an NTFS partition.


DEBUG
Starts Debug, useful for testing several hardware devices, like the game port, serial port etc. You can find more information on Debug at topic_01244. You can also use Debug to clear the CMOS when the jumper on the motherboard is not an option (see topic_01245).


FORMAT C:
This will delete all data on the C: drive after confirmation. In case of Odyssey systems, assign the name HDD as the volume label of the primary partition.

Note: This option will not work on an NTFS partition.


SCRIPTS

Note: Do not use this option unless necessary! Use Fdisk if you only want to remove a partition.



This script will erase the entire content of the hard disk drive and the hidden backup partition will also disappear. After rebooting, the entire hard disk drive is empty, even unpartitioned. You will have to run Fdisk and Format to make the hard disk drive accessible again.
Hardware Analysis
This section contains three options that are very useful when checking the system hardware. They do not fix anything, they just show what is there. If you have any doubt about a device being present or not, or the possibility of upgrades, you can check with these two tools:


EXTINFO
EXTINFO is an tool to gather information on Plug and Play cards. It will return a list with the Plug and Play IDs of all components like video card(s), sound card, etc.



This tool is useful, for example, if you are not sure what kind of sound chip there is on a Houston motherboard, or you need to identify motherboards like the Evergreen or the Evergreen 2. It can also be used to check upgrades. The information is displayed in a very technical manner, with French and English combined.


Microsoft Diagnostics
This is the MSD utility that has been shipped with the MS-DOS operating system for a long time. It is a very handy utility and it shows in clear listings the resources present in a system. However, it only lists devices supported by MS-DOS and their resources (I/O-addresses and IRQs) used under MS-DOS.

This option will not run on all systems because the path to the file might be incorrect. You can find the utility by executing the command DIR /S MSD.EXE on the backup partition or the Master CD 1. In general, it is not recommended under Windows XP.


Others HDD - RAM
This option is not present on all bootdiskettes with TS.BAT. Download the Recovery Bootdisk (REFFIUP04450300) when the option is missing. The menu gives the user access to reliable diagnostic tools supplied by the hardware manufacturers.




Option 1 will start a RAM test. This is a very useful tool to detect memory problems. Please keep in mind that memory errors may also be caused by other hardware components like the motherboard. Also check for memory upgrades when the test reports RAM errors. After the RAM test, the user will get the error: "invalid command.com". This is a result of the way the test is done; the user will need to reboot his system.


Option 2 will show a new HDD test menu. The HDD tests will only work for Seagate, Maxtor and Western Digital hard disk drives! For a hard disk drive from any other manufacturer, the tool will report errors incorrectly as "No hard drive".



Before the test starts, the tool tries to detect the hard disk drive. Detection errors will be reported on screen. The short test will only take a minute or two and it will perform a basic diagnostic test on the hard disk drive. Use the short test to troubleshoot the customer's hard disk drive over the phone. If the test result is OK, you may decide to start the long test and ask the customer to call back with the results. The long test will do a more extensive diagnostic test on the hard disk drive.
Recovery Options
This part of the TS.BAT gives access to several 'recovery' options.


ExtHS Information
Reads the Extended Hidden Sector information and outputs it to a text file, which will be displayed on the screen. In this text file you will be able to see the software and glue part numbers necessary for the restoration of the system. Glue parts are the tools needed for initialising and formatting the hard disk before the installation of Windows and applications can start. Use this tool only for very advanced troubleshooting of failing restore processes, as it displays the raw list of part numbers in the Extended Hidden Sector. Under normal circumstances, you will not need to use this option.


ExtHS Restoration
This option allows you to create a new Extended Hidden Sector by means of the command EXTHS/RESTORE.


TATTOO /CREATEDMIFROMHS
This command saves the customer a lot of typing; it should always be run after the previous command (ExtHS Restoration).


Clean ExtHS "Processing"
This option is normally used in production. It erases the recovery process log in the Extended Hidden Sector. Under normal circumstances, you will not need to use this option.


Recovery without FDISK/FORMAT
Use this option when you need to start the recovery process without clearing the hard disk drive.

Note: System recovery needs to be done on an empty, formatted (FAT32) hard disk drive.


Textmode Recovery without FDISK/FORMAT
This is the same as the previous option, but without the graphical interface. Usually during the recovery process, the customer has a screen with some gauges going up and down, indicating there is some form of activity. Sometimes, however, it can be necessary to see what really happens behind the screen. In this mode you will see which files are being copied. In case of problems during the copy process, it is easier to identify which file(s) go wrong. This option also skips Fdisk and Format.


Textmode Recovery
The same as the previous option, but the primary partition will be recreated and quick formatted as normal. This is a vital option if the recovery process hangs or freezes, because it will show you exactly what happens when this occurs.


CREATE A RECOVERY FLOPPY
Creates a new recovery Bootdisk, exporting all Extended Hidden Sector and Tattoo information to it in the form of *.BIN files.


Unified HS Shell
This option is still under development; do not use it!
Reinstall SmartRestore
This option will reinstall SmartRestore. Very handy in case SmartRestore is missing completely from the preload, or if it is damaged.
==================================================================

System Recovery from Master DVD or CDs hangs
Situation
When recovering the software from the Master DVD or Master CDs onto a system with 2 GB of RAM memory, the recovery process stops unexpectedly at the following screen.

Details
Due to the large amount of available RAM memory, certain DOS-based parts -specifically GDISK- of the recovery process run out of conventional memory and the entire recovery process fails.
Solution
To prevent the issue, download and install the patch 2 GB Recovery Process Patch

http://support.packa...hp?i=6959490000

(part number 6959490000) before creating the Master DVD or set of Master CDs with Packard Bell Master CD/DVD Creator. The patch will update the data on the hard drive that Packard Bell Master CD/DVD Creator uses to make the Master DVD or Master CDs. If you already created your Master DVD or set of Master CDs, follow these steps to perform a system recovery:

1. Turn on the computer.
2. Insert the Master DVD or set of Master CDs in your CD or DVD drive and close the tray.
3. If you are running Windows, restart the computer by clicking Start, Shut Down and Restart; the system will boot automatically from the Master DVD or CDs.
4. In the Welcome menu, press <N> to cancel.
5. Next write TS and press <Enter>.
6. Select option 1 - DOS Commands.
7. Select option 9 - SCRIPTS.
8. Select option 1 - Kill boot sector. Press "Y" to validate.
9. Select option 0 - Back. Select option 0 - Back. Select option 0 - Exit.
10. Next choose option 3 - FDISK.
11. If FDISK asks whether you wish to enable large disk support, accept with <Y> and press <Enter>.
12. If the program asks whether NTFS partitions on all drives should be treated as large, type <Y> and press <Enter>.
13. In FDISK's main menu choose option 1. Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive.
14. Select option 1. Create Primary DOS Partition; the program will check the hard drive.
15. FDISK will ask you if you want to use the entire available size; answer yes with <Y> and press <Enter>.
16. When the process has finished, press <Esc> several times to exit the utility.
17. Now you should restart the system; keep the Master DVD or CD in the optical drive drive.
18. In the Welcome menu, press <N> to cancel.
19. Type FORMAT C: and press <Enter>.
20. At the warning message type <Y> to continue and press <Enter>. The format process may take a few minutes depending on the size of the hard drive.
21. When finished, Format will ask for a volume label for the drive. Write HDD and press <Enter>.
22. Finally, restart the computer and run the recovery program (for instructions refer to your User's Guide).

================================================================
With the Packard Bell Recovery Program you can restore the computer to its original state as when you acquired it. At the same time, it offers you the possibility to maintain the current configuration and personal data. This recovery process does not require any CD and it only takes approximately 10 minutes. You can start this process by pressing <F11> at start-up, or by clicking the appropriate icon in SmartRestore. Please refer to the chapter on Recovery in your User's Guide.



It is also possible to restore your system from a backup copy. Therefore, your Packard Bell computer contains the utility Master CD/DVD Creator, which allows you to transfer your computer's recovery data to a Master DVD or a set of Master CDs. This DVD or these CDs will then be required if you need to restore a program or the entire computer.

Note: When you create a Master DVD or Master CDs, you can choose to either retain your backup data on your hard disk or permanently delete it. We strongly recommend that you retain the backup data on your hard disk drive. If you delete the backup data, you will no longer be able to use all the options of the Packard Bell Recovery Program, the recovery process will take up to 1 hour, you will not be able to restore your personal data and settings, and you will have to install all drivers for your hardware one by one.

The version of Windows XP that has been installed on your computer is an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) version. This version differs from the retail version (the regular Windows XP CD for sale in stores) in three ways:

* The license for the preloaded Windows XP that you buy together with your computer is linked to the computer and not to you. Although you are the legal owner of a Windows XP license, you are not allowed to install it on any other computer and you do not keep the license when you do not have the PC.
* Support on your OEM version of Windows XP (including any service packs you may install) is entirely done by Packard Bell and not by Microsoft. In fact, the Microsoft helpdesk will not take your call when your version of Windows XP came with your computer and refer you to the "original equipment manufacturer," in this case Packard Bell.
* The Windows XP CD contains the Microsoft Backup utility, which is not present in the OEM version.

When you use a regular Windows XP CD to restore the operating system, there is a chance that it damages or even deletes the Backup Partition -the section on your hard disk drive where all data is stored for recovering the system. You will then have to purchase a Master DVD to restore your computer's original software. Besides, it might void your software warranty.

Finally, you will not have any of the benefits of using the entire Packard Bell software that comes with your Packard Bell computer, including the licensed copy of Windows XP that you already paid for when you bought the computer. The Packard Bell preinstalled software has been developed for an optimal PC-experience: it provides qualified hardware drivers, diagnostic, backup and recovery software and InfoCentre, the main source of information about your computer hardware and software.

================================================================

here is a floppy like Richard Lindsey suggested
http://www.postbox.w...TattooExths.exe

down load it to desk top have a formatted floppy handy
then double click to make a bootable floppy
boot with that floppy(with the old hard disk in system)
press any key to boot from floppy
choose usb 1.1
you will get a prompt
type :
export and press enter
this copies the 2 Binary files to floppy
then change hard disk and boot with same floppy
at prompt type;
import
and press enter on key board
this will copy the 2 Bin files from floppy to Primary partition on hard disk

==========================================
I can not remember what I got on it except remember I made 2 .BAT files called export.bat and import.bat to copy (export) the 2 .Bin files(binary files) to floppydisk and then import them back to primary partition on the new hard disk .
======================================
I have now down loaded it and checked the content
when you boot from it it says press any key to boot from CD/DVD
press any key to boot from floppy!!!!!! laugh.gif laugh.gif

export.bat
==========
A:\tattoo /exportbin:a:\tattoo.bin
A:\exths /exportextbin:a:\exths.bin

import.bat
==========
A:\tattoo /importbin:a:\tattoo.bin
A:\exths /importextbin:a:\exths.bin
------------------------------------------------------
the floppy has 490KB empty plenty of room to copy the
2 Binary files:
tattoo.bin
exths.bin
.....................................................

the new HDD must not be NTFS
partition the new hard disk as one big Pri dos partition
do full format FAT 32
name it(volume VOL) as HDD in capital letters
other wise you will get Glue5 error

=======================================================
do not use Glue5.bat if you still got the recovery partition and have not and not yet made any DVDs
Glue5.bat
========
GDISK.EXE 1 /CRE /PRI /FOR /V:HDD /Q /Y

(create on disk 1 a primary partitionand format it ,lablel it HDD ,use Quick format option,Yes do it now)
==========================================================
Gdisk is on master CD1 of packard Bellin one of the archive files .xx
eg. search for it
Q:\parts\wse004AE.xx
Q:\parts\WSE006AE.XX
windows XP can use these .XX files like zip files copy GDISK.EXE to a floppy.

type
exportE


change hard drive
and then
type
imortfloppy
or
imortD
or
importE
depending on the letter assigned to USB stick

Extended Hidden Sector

This document has been produced to help you understand what a hidden sector is, how does it affect the remastering process and a step by step guide to reprogramming the hidden sector. Packard Bell computers are often incorrectly diagnosed as having hardware faults and engineers sent out with unnecessary parts, when in reality it’s a software/remastering fault that should have been solved over the telephone.

What is a hidden Sector?

The hidden sector is the place where the information required for remastering is stored. When the customer boots from the master CD boot floppy, a program is run to check the validity of the data in the hidden sector. It looks for the init string (pb, zds, nec) in the bios to ensure that the PC is actually a Packard Bell (This is a requirement of Microsoft). The hidden sector also contains machine specific information such as, what motherboard is installed, what graphics card etc. and most importantly the serial number of the machine.

The hidden sector is stored in 3 places
1. The DMI section of the bios
2. Track 0 Sector 0 of the hard disk (Fdisk does not affect this area)
3. The Master CD boot floppy disk

When the machine is booted from the floppy disk, the hidden sector is interrogated. It then looks for another hidden sector to verify the first. The program MUST find 2 out of 3 matches before the remastering process can continue.

The hardware that is chosen when reprogramming the hidden sector will decide what driver cabinet files are extracted from the Master CD, and also what software pre-load is installed (e.g. Club, Pulsar or Platinum)

Step by step guide to reprogramming a hidden sector

This is a guide to using Exths, Please remember to use the B.O.M in Sonsys to ensure that the information you enter is correct for the customers PC!!.

 Insert the customer’s serial number into Sonsys, and bring up the Bill Of Material.
 Get the customer to insert the Master CD and Boot floppy into their drives.
 Boot the machine
