Netbook won't Boot after deleting partition

Lenovo / S10

Specs: Windows 7/ XP
Yesterday I used Easeus Partition manager to delete a partition I had that I was using to dual boot Win7. Today, my computer won't boot up at all.

Netbook: Lenovo S10

I figure the problem is that I didn't delete the boot file for Windows 7 before I had deleted the partition and now that it's gone it's messing up my computer. Please help with how I can resolve this issue. Netbook= no cd drive.

I can't press F2 or F12 during boot either. It will make a beep and just shut down after the lenovo startup screen.

Hi
Is it the Fn key and F12? for boot menu
have you got one key recovery with the lenovo or is that the partition wiped?


if all is lost...
& you know your net book network card supports pxe then you can reload xp etc using another pc

heres a link to Ryans quite informative web page, 'how to'

i read this the other day i havnt tried it yet but Ryan is a regular poster on computing.net.

There is also a method of installing win7 from usb stick tho the detail is quite deep, you will have to google it if you want win7 back on, cant say it designed for that but some say it works.

sounds like you deleted the wrong partition.

assuming you had two partitions which one did you delete?

I deleted the right one. I made sure to label it and i knew it was only 30 GB. I looked up how i was supposed to do it and I was supposed to delete the boot file for Win7 before I deleted the partition.So that the boot file from Win7 is messing up the entire boot up.

As long as the deleted partiton was the 2nd one not the first one. Otherwise you deleted the partition containing the master boot record.

can you boot via usb? If that is a bios option you would want to consider booting via usb stick to gain access to the hard drive.

I can't even access the BIOS via any F2 or F12 buttons. And it won't boot off the usb either. The Lenovo screen opens up and than it just turns off. No matter what I do.

More going on than just a partition delete. That sounds like a bad mainboard/ram/cpu. Still under warranty?

Yeah... but I was preparing to sell the thing so shipping it off for 1 month minimum is not the best solution.

It was pretty much user error as well. which sucks.

I'd reset bios or try to reflash the bios maybe.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Your deleting a partition should have no effect on accessing the bios. No user error. You can take out the hard drive and still be able to access the bios. Yet you can't access the bios.

If under warranty I would get warranty repair done on it.
