When i start my computer it come on but i have hit the f1key to start my computer



You have to format a hard drive with a third party disk unless its a usb data drive
Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart

this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system.

Note: After you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded

If you are putting windows XP on your computer your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd.


hope this helps

Compaq desktop persario xp non-system disk or disk error


This means that the system identifies the hard drive on your computer as one that is not bootable, in other words, it does not contain any operating system, or it does contain one, but the disk format is not recognized by the system. For example, Windows operating systems only identify two types of disks and that is DYNAMIC or BASIC. If a Hard disk has an operating system and has been converted to DYNAMIC, you can not start any operating system on it. Only BASIC disks can be used to start an operating system. Here is a solution for you... Get a copy of the operating system you are using and boot the computer from it. Press F2 when booting and go to the system BIOS where you are going to configure the boot order or the boot sequence and make the CD drive the first booting device, so that the system can boot from the CD. If you receive a message stating that the SETUP can not find any hard disk installed.... then there must be a problem with the Hard disk format. Remove the hard disk and connect it to a desktop computer as a slave. This will enable you to see the Hard disk as a removable device on the 'My computer" menu.Go to start, right-click on "My computer" and select "Manage". This will take you into computer management console, then select "Disk management" and this will bring all the disks and drives connected to that computer and all their respective information. Click of the drive that you just connected and check on the bottom middle column, the type of the disk whether it is DYNAMIC or BASIC. If it is Dynamic, then you have to covert it back to basic. Make sure you make a data backup before you do this. This is because the system will delete anything on the hard drive. When you are done, take the hard drive back to your computer and boot from the CD again and install a new operating system. You should be good after this...

Replaced hard drive and am getting a "Reboot and


Hi seqhdha,

The reason why you're receiving that meesage is the system is not detecting any bootable device on the computer or it is boot from a media that is not bootable (CD/DVD/USB). To fix this problem if you already installed the Operating System you can change boot priority setting and select the Hard Drive as the First Boot Device however, if you havent install the Operating System you need to select the CDROM as the First Boot Device and insert the Windows Installer.

Here are the steps on how to access the BIOS Page.

1. Restart the computer and while it is booting tap DELETE button.

2. On the Bios page look for the BOOT tab then set the priority to either Hard Disk or CDROM depends if you already installed the OS or not.

3. Follow the instruction on how to install the Operating System

4. Rate me if this helps so i can help others.

Thanls for using Fixya.

Dell dimension 5100 original partitions have been wiped .. Now need to reinstall xp . I can not. Selected boot device not available. can not do ctrl-f11 anymore of course btw just in case you were thinking...


If you are getting message the message "selected boot device not available" that is because you have do not have a bootable HDD (Hard Disk). Please do the following:

Insert the Windows XP Operating system Disk.
Restart the computer and start Tapping the F12 key, It will give you the boot options.
Select to boot from CD/DVD-Rom
When prompted press any key to boot from CD-Rom
Once the computer is booted from CD, follow the instructions to install the Operating system.
Note: You can also go to BIOS (by pressing F2 or Delete) and change the boot device to CD-ROM

Once you finish installing the Windows Operating system. You can go ahead with installation of your Linux Operating system. After you finish Installing Linux you will get the option in GRUB to select the Operating systems.

If you have already installed Linux and want to install the Windows, Follow the same procedure but it will directly boot Windows after you finish Installing Windows. You will have to write the GRUB again for your Linux system.

Please get back for any further assistance.

If you find this solution helpful, Please do not forget to rate it.

Thank you for choosing Fixya.

Compaq Presario SR12320M will not boot up Help


    • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
    • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
  1. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include Startup Repair as a preinstalled recovery option.)
  2. Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
  3. Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.
  4. On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem and, if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.This should solve your problem

"<Winnt_root>\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:


  1. Verify the boot.ini file is found on the computer by using a boot diskette or use your Windows CD to get to the MS-DOS "C:\>" prompt.
  2. From this prompt edit the boot.ini, verify that it is pointing to the correct operating system, and that no anomalies are found within the file. Below is a listing of what to verify
  • If only one operating system is on the computer verify that the boot.ini only has one operating system listed. In some situations an alternate configuration line may be added for the same operating system, leaving the improper line.
  • Verify that the "default=" line as well as the operating system line are the same and that they are pointing to the correct operating system.
Verify that the computer has the hal.dll file

From the MS-DOS "C:\>" prompt quickly determine if your computer has the "hal.dll" file by typing "dir hal.dll /s" at the prompt. If the computer returns a "File not found" message, the hal.dll has been deleted.

To recover this file boot the Windows operating system CD and choose the option to "Restore", "Repair", or "Recover." This option will prompt you for the Windows installation to use, the administrators password and will allow you to restore the proper file. At the MS-DOS prompt type the below command.

expand C:\i386\hal.dl_ D:\windows\system32\

In the above example "D" would be the letter of your CD-ROM drive and "C" the letter of the drive your operating system is installed on. For example, your disc drive may be D: and your hard drive is likely C:.

How do i reboot the toshiba te 2000 if i don't have a disc


You can try to boot your toshiba te 2000 up under safe mode. To do this, you start your computer, keep pressing F8 right away, if you keep pressing you should get a startup options, and select safe mode, then it will ask you which operating system (if you have it double partitioned) otherwise it should boot up under the safe mode, otherwise you will have to have the disc.

Hope this helps.
