Can legacy bios ever boot gpt efi, say with a linux efi emulation.


Ok so when it's trying to boot in legacy mode it will see the hard disk as unformatted. Therefore it won't boot Windows 8 or 10. You need to get the bios back into booting uefi.
Resetting the bios should do that anyway, but there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to get into the bios to make that change. Try doing this with the hard disk unplugged so you don't risk trashing it.

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!

I brought a new hard drive for my laptop .....my computer is not reading it ....I know the hard drive is blank. but how do I load information on it?


Try this.

Plug in the Hard Drive to the computer, then put your Windows disk into the disk drive. You'll also need to enter the BIOS when your computer boots up and set it to boot from your disk. There should be an option that says "Press X to enter Setup" when you turn on your computer. (X being F1, F2, DEL, Etc.)
Once the BIOS's Boot Sequence has been set to boot from your disk drive, reboot the computer. It will eventually tell you to press any key to boot from the DVD. When it boots from the Windows disk, you want to set it to do a Custom Install. There should be an option in there to perform a clean install of Windows. Format the Hard Drive first, then create a new partition and install Windows on that drive. If you have more than one HDD, make sure you don't format the wrong one or you will lose all your data.
If you need additional information, return to this page and I'll be happy to assist you further.

Boot error always


Hello sir, hi your boot error can be caused by the following:
  1. Your IDE hard disk is not the first boot, and wrong available boot on the bios. Check your BIOS setup for proper boot device.
  2. Your IDE hard disk has bad serctors, since its P4, I estimate your drive to be 8 years or more. You may need to format the hard drive again and reinstall your OS (windows XP).
  3. IF your HD cannot be formated, or no amount of windows installation can be done on the disk, its time to replace it.
  4. Your IDE cannot be detected by the motherboard. check your BIOS configuration for proper hard disk setup.
  5. Your IDE hard drive and your CD drive are both master or both slave, set the hard disk to master and the CD drive to slave. The settings can be seen on the case of the HD and CD drive.
  6. Your IDE ribbon cable is bad.
  7. Your 4 pin molex power cable to the HD is loose.
If I miss out something, please let me know. thanks.

My system doesnt boot from the PATA drive


Sort of obvious (judging by the stuff you tried) but, Did you try going into the BIOS setup and making sure the hard disk is the first boot device? (if its lower than something else, say a windows hard disk, it'll load windows instead, etc.) If not something is wrong with your linux boot file, and the BIOS can't read/understand it, try reloading linux onto the hard disk.

Won't Load OS from DVD


If your laptop will post, meaning you can get to the BIOS, then YES. Re-flash it with the original BIOS, or a newer but proper BIOS. Then all should be OK again.

New 160 gig hard drive, can't load XP on Fujitsu S6210


Insert the new hard drive in your laptop, boot up and go into the BIOS.
Check if the hard disk setting is set to Auto (detect). Check the system configuration and see if it detects the hard disk.
If there is a hard disk diagnostic utility within the BIOS, run it to check the hard disk.
You can also test the hard disk by booting up with a boot floppy disk, run fdisk.exe to see if can display, create a partition, and format the hard drive etc.

If not of this works then it is highly possible that you have a faulty disk controller in your laptop.

Error to Detect, hardisk must be formatted


The problem might not be with the HHD instead it could be your bios setup. you will have to download drivers for the bios of you laptop and install them in your operating system then try to access the hard-disk.
