I installed a new hard drive (only one in computer), used system recovery from Sony for Vaio desktop, re-installed windows XP pro.
Then attempted to remove partition "d". Whole disc became "c". When I shut down, and later tried to re-start, it will not boot. The only thing is a 'chirp' about every 5 seconds, plus cannot shut off with the power switch. (have to unplug).
Have tried using emergency XP floppy, and CD from Sony, with the same results.

The occasional "chirp" or beep can be a sign of low battery.

Just out of interest, why are you removing the D drive when the system boots fine with it there?

The Vaio comes with a very small "c" partition, and a very large "d" partition. After a time, the "c" gets too full, and there is lots, and lots of space on the "d". Since I had to install a new hard drive, I dicided to make only one drive "c".
