BSOD message: partmgr.sys

Nov 2, 2009
  1. Hello,

    I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop. At the moment, I have no OS running, as I am trying to reformat my computer. In doing so, I received the BSOD message: partmgr.sys - Address F87C04AB base at F87BE000.

    Do I need a new hard drive?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    What Windows CD version are you using to boot with and did you set the CD as the first boot device? I could be wrong but maybe you aren't booting correctly.
