|I assume when you said ....before changing to one of the listed directories... you meant not doing any dir on any of those listed on the CD and just input what you said from whatever prompt it appears. |
So this is how I idd it and I hope it is equivalent to booting up the palmtop to do it because I just pop the first disk into the CD bay (E: drive) of the laptop I am using, then went into the (DOS) command prompt, did a E:, then dir which shows what's on the CD as posted on my previous message and when E: prompt reappears, I input those 2 commands you stated. On both command, it returned with the following:
Volume of drive E: is RECOVERYCD
Volume serail number: xxxxxxx(some numbers)
Directory of E: \
Files not found
I got this same message for both input you mentioned.
Let me know if I have done this wrong or I need to do this on the actual palmtop we are trying to rescue. Thanks
I did tried to run INSTALL4 and restorer.exe (the only to possible executable files on the first disk) last night when I hooked up the palmtop, CD drive, etc, but all came back without any success. Can't remember the exact messages that came up. But it didn't work. the message was something like it can't detect an CDROM dirve on Q drive. I was wondering if Q drive was where they had the original Recovery program installed on the Hard Drive ?? If you want to know the exact message, let me know and I will redo the run again.
I also did went about running all the application files in the SONY folder on the 2nd disk and even though, they were installing them (some were able to be installed and some not) there don't seem to be any major changes. They don't seem to affect any of the functions on the palmtop except now, when I boot up, I get something like it can't read the battery status ! :(
Hope you have better luck.
BTW, sorry I didn't mark any text in bold type. I highlighted the text I wanted to appear in bold and it changed to , but when I submitted the post, these just disappeared.I was successful in my last, but only after several attempts, It is not happening now. Did I missed something out ? But this is just a minor aside from the issue at hand. Just thought you might like to know that at least I tried to make my post more readable.
REEDIT: Oops. looks like the last bit somehow suddenly appeard bold when I didn't marked them to be so ???? Oh well...I'll figure it out as I go along, I guess !!
