Make sure you have the boot drive on the master of the IDE cable... and make sure your jumpers are set appropriately

More than likely, since you say you did a DOS install of the OS, you did not set the FDISK parameters to set your primary drive. Insert the DOS CD you used to format the system. Boot to a DOS prompt and run the FDISK command. It should have an option, I believe it is number 2 or 3 to "Set primary drive". Select your hard disk 0 as this drive and you should be fine at rhat point.

    Do you have a CDROM drive connected to the same IDE cable as the hard drive? If so, move this to the other IDE connector. This is a known issue with some drives, especially smaller volume hard drives. This should fix that problem.

Computer wont boot properly


A POST diags card can help you resolve your problem/s, if not then.
1. remove all devices and insert the floppy drive, one RAM module and video card.
2. Go into the BIOS configuration and set it to the default configuration, check the installed RAM is it correct? .
3. Insert the remainder RAM module/s and check the POST info and BIOS again, has it detected all the RAM?
4. Does the computer Boot up using a floppy boot disk
5. Insert the CD and hard disk and check the POST info and BIOS configuration, does it detect the new drives?
6. Does the computer Boot up using a floppy boot disk, run FDISK, can you see the hard drive, if so delete all partitions (if any) and create a new primary DOS partition and then format the hard drive.
7. Boot up with the Windows CD (may have to change the boot order to the CD as the first boot device).
8. Delete the DOS partition, create a primary NTFS partition and the do a full NTFS format (not a quick format) and continue to install Windows Xp or Vista.
9. Install the other device eg modem, Lan etc. and the drivers.

If you have trouble with the first 5 steps, then you most likely have a faulty motherboard and/or a faulty hard disk.

Yes you need winxp or recovery disk.
Then boot your computer with that disk.
For that put that disk in cd rom.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot option then set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings then it boot with that winxp disk.
Then follow the procedure you get message when it find your previos version of windows then press "r"
then it repair your winxp.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.

Hard drive failure


Hi, you have nothing to type there. You mean you have chosen the 1st section that opens recovery console,right? not that one. You should see the Terms of Agreement in your WinXP cd first, press F8. A section containing to install a Windows XP appears, Press Enter. Then that's the time it will search for your previous Win xp installation. In will then let you choose whether you will install a fresh copy of WinXP OR to Repair it. Choose the Repair. It will automatically repairs and format your Harddisk without deleting your files in it.  IF there's no Option to repair it, that's the time you will have to go to Recovery Console.
  • To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps: 
    Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer. 

    Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
    When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
    When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
    At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation. 

    For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. 

    For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
    To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
If still you cannot get through to that, drop me a comment again and tell me what you have done. Feel free to ask me.
