Solution: Floppy or CD that is not bootable is currently in the computer Verify that no floppy diskette or CD is currently in the computer. If a diskette or CD is in the computer that is not bootable your computer may attempt to boot from that diskette or CD causing this error message.
BIOS is not setup properly Additional information and help with getting into BIOS or CMOS setup can be found on http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000...
Verify that your hard disk drive is setup and detected properly in BIOS. You're computer should list a hard disk drive installed either under the main page or the drives page in BIOS. If BIOS indicates the drive is not installed or not detected skip to Hard Disk drive is bad or not connected ....
Verify the boot options are properly set in BIOS, almost all BIOS setups should contain options specifying how your computer boots. For example, most computers should have their boot options setup similar to the below example.

 - Hard drive
 
Rest your BIOS to default values. Many BIOS will enable users to reset the values to the default settings. If you've tried the above options without success try resetting the BIOS.
Hard disk drive does not have bootable files on it It is possible that command.com or another bootable file may be missing from the hard disk drive. Follow the below steps to possible resolve your issue.

Boot from a bootable floppy diskette.
At the A:\> type fdisk <press enter>
If you receive a message no fixed disk present, read Hard Disk drive is bad or not connected ....
If you are able to get into fdisk, choose option 4 to display the partition information. In the partition information, if the System is listed as FAT16 or FAT32 then continue to step 5. If you have a message indicating no partitions defined, no information is on your hard disk drive and you will need to create a new partition. See our fdisk page for additional information.
If you see FAT16 or FAT32 in fdisk press the ESC key until back at the A:\>
Once at the A:\> type, sys c: <press enter> (only do this command if you are using the same operating system that this diskette was created on).
This should return a message 'System Transferred', if you receive bad command or file name and have verified you have typed the command properly, you will need to obtain a bootable diskette with the file sys.com on it.
If system was transferred successfully, reboot the computer and issue should be resolved.
Windows 2000 and Windows XP users
Boot from either your ERD, your bootable Windows CD, or your bootable restore CD.

If your operating system is not listed above or the above steps did not resolve your issue you can also try erasing the hard disk drive and starting over.The hard disk drive is bad or not connected properly
If you have attempted all above suggestions and you are still encountering the same issues, verify the connections are properly connected to the computer if the hard drive was recently installed or the computer was moved.
Unfortunately, if all connections are setup properly and all the above recommendations have been attempted, it is likely that the hard disk drive is bad and it will need to be replaced.

This is an expected operation. In the Boot Device priority setting in BIOS, you will see Removable Dev. (floppy), Hard Drive, ATAPI CD-ROM, and typically last is Intel® UNDI PXE 2.0.

By seeing this message it means the PC cannot find a boot partition on the floppy disk, hard drive or the CD ROM to load the operating system. Solution:
Install an operating system or put in a bootable device into the floppy or CDROM. If you do not plan to boot to a remote boot host, you may disable the Intel® UNDI PXE 2.0 option from the BIOS setup utility boot order. Relevant Information: No operating system installed

Dell Dimension 8300 - Can't Boot from XP Disk


When in doubt do without, that is remove the new hard drive cable and power, remove the DVD drive and try loading booting the XP from just this CD device. Enter the BIOS and check if the system sees the device. If it's not found in the BIOS then you'll never boot anything. Address it as the Primary device on the cable (I don't use CS) and see if the BIOS sees it.
If you get CD device seen in the BIOS then try to boot the CD in it. If it boots then power off and connect up your 40gb drive (optioned as Primary) on the other cable. Now power on as check the BIOS for the drive and the DVD device. If both are seen then boot the cd and try to load XP. After it's up and running install the other CD device as a Slave on one of the cables.

Dear Transtripper,

It shows that your IDE option is not enabled in the BIOS. So, enable the IDE Controller in your motherboard.

IBM Netvista desktop bios problem


this is more like a workaround that I used on a laptop which cd room drive just failed (and which I did not want to replaced as it was more expensive than the whole laptop)

If you can't select the device you want to boot from.. you may want to partition your hdd and format it so it loads a dos operating sytem .. use another machine and a win98 startup disk to do this then copy your I386 folder from your winxp cd into the new formatted hdd so when you put the hdd back into the IBM machine it loads dos and then going into the I386 folder you can run a winnt command for you to install the os.

Re-installing operating system


If you boot to the CD (on boot with the CD in the drive you should get a screen with the option to boot to the CD, if your boot order in your BIOS is set to CD ROM before Hard Drive), you should (after loading files for a while) get to a screen that will allow you to select the drive/partition to install to. If trying to install from within the Windows environment it won't happen.
