It is a hardware problem.if a blue screen appears on the screen while it is restarted, then try troubleshooting on the code mentioned it. if no blue screen is seen, then the problem is with the motherboard id SMPS.you might have to replace any one of them.

Hi britchel07, I see that you are having issue booting into windows on your system. I can help you with your concern, we can first try to boot into the Hard drive manually, follow the steps below, 1. Power your computer ON then keep on tapping the F12 key on top the keyboard until you get the Boot Menu screen, 2. On the Boot Menu screen select the Hard drive it maybe listed as SATA or HDD, but if it is not listed then we may need to try a different option, on the Boot Menu the Hard Drive should be the first one on the list. 3. Highlight the Hard Drive on the list then press Enter to make your computer boot into the Hard Drive. if this does not work then your Hard Drive may not be detected by the machine, why I really can't tell there are many possible causes, but we can try other options to see if this can be rectified. I believe that you have a Desktop machine, we will need to open up the tower to check if there are lose cables inside from the Hard Drive to your systems Motherboard, inside you should see a Flat Orange like red colored cable sometimes Blue that should be your SATA cable going to your Hard Drive from the Motherboard, try reseating the SATA cable to make sure it is properly connected and also check the SATA power cable just to be surem it should also be a black flat cable connected to the Hard drive just right nest to the SATA cable, after reseating the two cables try turning the computer ON again and see if the system will boot into Windows. If still you get the Error no boot device found then you may need to get a new Hard Drive for your system. I hope that this will be helpful with your concern, Have a nice day.
Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.
can you give additional information? the purple screen could also be the dreade BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. do get to see any error message or stop code? can you try to boot using LAST KNOW GOOD CONFIGURATION? by pressing F8 when your computer starts and in the advance boot menu select LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION.
normally vista will repair itself when you restart it. was vista able to repair the OS?
Blue screen can be caused by several factors it could be both hardware and software. for software it could be caused by any new software/program installed or updates installed. for hardware it could be from your hard drive to memory depending on the error message. but at this point we shall presume it to be caused by a software and could have corrupted your vista file or hive of our vista.
first option is if you can still go tosafe mode try to do a system restore click start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a highlighted date on the calendar to the left when your computer works well and restore your computer to that date
if you are still having problem get your vista cd ready we may need to fix some files in your computer
boot to cd with your vista inside your cd rom drive. let your windows load up and when you get to see the window welcome setup screen choose repair then type chkdsk /r
still lots to be done but for now let us assume one of the fixes is within this reply
