OK there could be many reasons behind it
1) If your CD is booting  and the harddisk is not  it means  that maybe your harddisk has moved  form its loacatio  try to place it in its location

2)U might be having a SATA hdd  
   if that is the case maybe ur  BIOS settings have changed and you might have to enter the BIOS and  change the settings there.

If u cannot find the settings pls post back I would be happy to  provide the settings

Hello, I have a Packard Bell branded laptop displaying the error there is no boot disk see details and the photos in first comment to know what happens and did someone can help me with it?!


If you set the boot order to USB first boot device and HD second. Insert USB and boot from there. It should find your HD and then you can install your OS. Another system for a different laptop will not work!

Help how to format lenovo ideapad s300 in windows 7


If you want to format your entire hard drive (and reinstall windows) You'll need to insert the appropriate windows disk. If you want to reinstall 7, insert your windows 7 disk and boot off of the disk (When booting, it should start by showing a screen that says "Press any key to boot from CD..." and you can just press a key on your keyboard. From there, follow the on screen instuctions. When you get to the drive partitioning step, select your hard drive and partition you want to format. You can delete the partition you have and make a new one if you want to totally clean the computer (WARNING: This will literally delete everything on your computer. Everything). From there you continue and finish the setup (it may run for a while). And you have a fesh new hard drive and operating system install.

Can we format pc by usb drive


you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive
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 the scroll to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart
note 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 your hard drive
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE0 means Pri master
IDE1 means Pri slave
IDE2 means Sec master
IDE3 means Sec slave

or if you are using a USB
insert your usb drive
click start right click on my computer select open you should see your USB drive
right click then select format
another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format
if you need more help with this post a reply
hope this helps

Windows xp will not start . i have tried repairing hard disk in bios but it stopped after 27% repairing. will not boot up with xp cd


If you format a disc with a system file on it and CHKDSK.exe on it.
Boot the laptop from it and run CHKDSK/F. This will remove the errors on the hard drive and hopefully let you re format and put your system back on.

Downloaded The Recovery CD's Went To Boot Up Laptop, Realtek Fast Ethernet Network Atdapter come's Up, Then Media Test Failure,Check Cable. Keep's Repeating, Even When I Shut It Down & Reboot It.


Hello sir, hi, this error could be several, so check this one by one:
  1. make sure your pc boots on the hard drive, not floppy, or other boot devices.
  2. If you are setting up windows boot from the CD drive.
  3. check your HARD DRIVE, this may be due to failure, format it using a low level format utility like disk manager.
  4. re-seat Hard Drive cables. use another cable if necessary.

Replaced hardrive with seagate 7200 500gb momentus


When you created a partition on the new hard drive, did you make the partition active?
A partition that has not been activated can be formatted and Windows installed, disk check etc. but will not boot up.
You can make the partition by booting up in DOS with either a floppy disk or a boot CD and run the DOS command "fdisk" and navigate to Set the partition active.

Hard disk formetting


hi,

I think low level formatting should do the trick. you can download it and its free. In your case try to download the DOS based version. This type of formatting erases the entire disk clean.
