Question about E-Machines eMachines T3830 PC Desktop
Hi. I installed a new harddrive on an old e-machine and copied all the files and operating system onto the new hd. Now I'm trying to remove the old one and just use the new one. I connected the cables to the new hd and tried to start the machine. "No operating system detected."
I think I need to get into the BIOS and tell it to boot from the new HD. How do I get into the BIOS? It goes from pushing the on button directly to Windows opening. Also, does this sounds like the problem?
Most of all: what do I do once I get into BIOS? (I'm not super savvy about this, so please speak simple English!) thanks!!
First of all did you install an operating system on your HD like windows or linux, copied doesn't work really good, take out the old HD for the new one and install the operating system. You can always afterward copy your old data on the new one
To enter into Bios puch "del" "F2" "F5" and "F8" simultanously (depend on the bios) when in bios go in BOOT menu with left or right arrow. then go down on the new hard drive and put it on top of the list, usully with F5 and F6 (how to use the menu is describe on the right), then press F10 and "Y" (yes) to accept the modification...
