Installed new hdd still says no bootable devices

You need to install the OS (operating system). Insert the OS cd into the cd-rom and reboot. When it says "Press any key to boot from CD" press a button.. Then follow the on screen prompts to install the OS onto the hard drive.

Hi there! Yesterday I was installing Windows XP

Sorry to hear your having issues installing the OS.

There is two problems your facing one is the disk is so scratched that the system can not read the disk or the hard drive has bad sectors or clusters which are failing when being written to.

You have two options to fix this one is to make sure the cd is clean an or replace your hard drive.

General disk read error message tend to be from hard drive cylinder's.

Asus Eee pc 904 hd how can i reformat my computor to original factory settings

Do you mean to ERASE everything on the hard drive and then re-install the OS and all the drivers from scratch?

Before you do any of the follwing, be ABSOLUTELY SURE that you have access to the drivers you'll need for your computer. If you don't have access to the original CD/DVD, you can download them from here:

You will also need the SERIAL NUMBER or "PRODUCT ACTIVATION KEY" for your copy of Windows. If you have misplaced this, you can try the following program, which will read the product activation key from your HD:

There are several programs out there to erase the contents of your HD and re-format it.

A) One option is to use your OS CD/DVD:

1) Place your OS CD/DVD in the CD-ROM and boot from it (you may need to change something in your BIOS so that the computer does not boot from the HD.

2) After the CD boots, choose "install OS" (do not choose "repair installation").

3) You will be asked if you want to DELETE the partition in your HD that has your OS. Choose "YES". This will delete ALL information previously stored in your HD.

4) Proceed with the OS installation, following the directions on the screen.

5) After the OS is installed and your copy of Windows is validated, install all the drivers


Please, report back if you need further assistance

Connect a USB CD-ROM and install a new OS - or if you can get the same Operating System (OS) disc from a friend use it to repair your system.

Its the only think you can do really.

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration

Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.

Building new computer with ASUS M2A motherboard and AMD 749 processor. Computer starts, displays ASUS setup screen, goes to blank screen with blinking cursor and then hangs up.

Try to check connections to hard drive...If OK..then check boot device priority in BIOS and change 1st boot device as Hard drive..Then If not worked then chnage 1st boot device as cd rom and boot from a bootable CD and installl OS..
