sounds like your suspend partition has been removed or damaged. Dell should have a utility for fixing this. i would try searching using the service tag number on the laptop or the model number at
i am unfamiliar with phdisk.exe, sorry

For suspend to disk download s2d utils from dell site. Here are the shortcuts: - diskette image - just utils

Or go to enter service tag of your machine, select "Downloads for your Dell" and look for "Utilities: Dell Suspend Utilities, BIOS, English, Multi System" 1999-07-28 (version A05).

Run mks2d from a dos diskette or dos/windows partition to create suspend-to-disk partition. You'd better arrange for the disk space in advance when you plan your install.

My experience with suspend to disk utilities involved installation from a DOS boot disk prior to installing OS.

Unless things have changed, you won't be able to repair S2D partition under Windows.
