If you are talking about accessing the partition from Linux, the kernel file system driver does not allow writing to NTFS partitions. You can write to the partition in Linux if you install the NTFS-3G file system. This is the only form of "write-protection" that should be on your system.

One day you use the partition program to partition C Drive machine turn off for some reason half way through now you you turn on machine it say no operation system re run recovery disk not work why?

Okay, if the machine lost power during the partitioning process, you will have to start over with the partitioning as all the data on the hard disk will be scrambled. The process of partitioning modifies the data structure on the hard disk in very fundamental ways, interrupting this process halfway through will leave the hard disk with corrupted or missing partitions. Most likely all partitions will need to be removed and redone. Removing corrupted partitions may require a low-level format.

How do you get a new hard drive to work?

A new hard drive generally comes without a valid partition table nor file system. Assuming you have the new hard drive cabled and configured correctly (using the jumper diagrams on the label), you then have to prepare it for a file system.The first thing you'd need to do is partition the new hard drive. Since Windows XP, Windows comes with both FDisk and a disk manager. You can use those. Once you install the partition table, you may need to format the partition(s) you created. If you use FDisk, you will certainly need to format as a separate step. FDisk is really only suitable for new drives or drives you want to completely erase, since it cannot change partition sizes once they are created without losing data.Or if you prefer, you can use a third-party partition manager. The modern partition managers can automatically do some of the necessary steps for you. So all you have to do is tell it you want a certain size partition or to use the entire space and it will make sure you have a valid partition table, that you have a FAT32 or NTFS file system, and have the correct type of partitions.One thing to keep in mind is that if you ever want to boot off of the new drive, the partition table type has to be set to Active. If the active flag is missing, any operating system that is installed on that drive will not boot. So if you can access the drive but not boot from it, then you likely forgot to configure the drive as Active. That is easy to fix and even FDisk can do that without any loss of data. Nearly every partition tool available has this option.

If Windows XP installation CD has autoruninf file missing than will you be able to install Windows XP operating system?

The autorun.inf file is not crucial to the installation process; it only brings up the setup program automatically when you insert the disk. You can still perform an upgrade by running the setup program manually, or perform a clean install by booting from the CD. Note that a Windows XP disc missing this file is highly unusual, and if this file is missing, it is quite likely other contents may missing, damaged, or have been tampered with.
