Owing to some upgrading problem, I follow the guide to restore factory settings and press Thinkvantage when starting the NB. I remember there is F11 appear in the past. However, I could not find option F11 RNR last night.
I get into myt XP Pro and check that HPA is still here and it's about 4.XGb. I repeat several times and this problem still cannot be solved.
Anyone faced same problem? How to let it appears again?

1. Either (re)install latest version of Rescue and Recovery:
Rescue and Recovery™ 4.2 for Windows XP and 2000.
2. Repair the boot sector:
Rescue and Recovery - Recovery repair diskette.
You would require a floppy disk drive for this.

yes, somewhere along the line, you changed the boot sector. Did you add another software program like Acronis or Ghost? Or did you add a dual boot with another o/s?
One thing you might do is to take a hard drive image of your present C drive. Then, use the prior posters recommendations or... go thru the RnR with your CD/DVD disks which will put the F11 capability back into place. Then, re image your hard drive.

After a BIOS upgrade a while back, the prompt message listing the actions for PF1, PF11, and PF12 went away, but the actions still work fine. I have toggled the BIOS option that is supposed to control this but there is no effect.
