My friend had a virus and formatted his Acer Computer which came to him with Windows 98 installed which he upgraded to XP. Format went fine but his D Drive is no longer showing. When he puts the recovery disk in the drive he gets a message Destination: hard disk0/partition 2. The files do not load. Can you hyelp?

If he /she upgraded to XP I suggest they just do a clean install XP and then download the relevant drivers from the acer support site , forget the recovery disk as its probably Win98 anyway.

Make (Acer )and model ?

He did upgrade but was given the option to save the recovery disk - he has formatted since the upgrade and had no problem using the disk - could this be anything to do with the virus. He is not at all computer literate and is not able to work out what drivers he needs.
