one partition but no C visible

By Eagle6bat ·
I have a virus and cannot see C. I tried using Uneraser for dos and it shows my C drive as a logical drive and it also shows 2 additional partiions one being fat 16 and the other fat 12. When I use fdisk it only shows a number 1 next to my ntfs drive but no letter? I dont want to format due to my cdrom not responding. This is a HP Pavillion ze1110 Laptop with XP home. I tried fdisk /mbr no luck, I tried creating a primary, when i run fdisk it shows the new partition with C and the ntfs partition as 2 but with no letter??? I can boot into XP with a new primary partition, but it gives me a passoword dialog box cannot go in. I tried safe mode with password but will not go in. If i clear user and passowrd it starts showing my background but then it logs off?? I tried command console but no password to enter. Any thoughts?

Apperently you have not cleaned the virus from your system,at this point you may have to reformat the drive after doing a backup of the files you want to keep.

Try using a Windows 98 bootdisk which has the cd-rom drivers

One option that you may try and that is to run the anti-virus ERD from the DOS mode,insert ERD in A:\drive and boot system
