Put it in again and let it finish. It sounds like the installation was interrupted.

Understand that if you restore to factory settings all personal files will be gone. If you need to recover personal files you MAY be able to do so.

Hi have a similar problem like this. I have a compaq SR1611NX, It might be
the same thig also. Maybe if the restore disc's were put into it and run, it might become like mine. Mine is in shadowing now and can't figure out why, and can't find any information to why it is like this. I thought the MoBO
went out but it woks fine , except to re-install. I could use some help also.

You MAY be able to repair your partition using a utility called testdisk. Get it at the link below. Be sure to read all instructions before using.
