Compaq presario error 280 at boot

October 12th, 2008

I’ve been playing with a Compaq Presario 1245. As soon as I got it I repartitionned the hard-drive and installed linux, which was fun, but also a bad idea. Apparently the BIOS needs a hibernation partition, and if it doesn’t find it, it just overwrites existing partitions at random.

The official solution is to run PHDISK.exe if you can find it on your old Compaq installation disks. That didn’t work for me since I never had any.

The working solution is to run lphdisk for linux instead. This will repartition your hard drive, so be sure to make a backup first. If you can’t compile lphdisk on the computer you need to fix (because, for instance you’re using puppylinux or systemrescuecd to boot it), compile a static version on another linux computer (Alter Makefile to Include -static in the CFLAGS), and run it from floppy disk (haha! you still have one of those, don’t you?) or USB key.
