You need to have the boot drive set as the primary Partition. You can get iso's on line from several of the Linux distros that will boot and allow you to change this. It is free. You can also try Linux without changing your hard drive by booting from a DVD.

Sounds like a bad hard drive with the XP install but if not then you would have to do a repair install from the XP cd or do a clean install depending on if you want to retain user files

Cant install any boot disk to my new asus sabertooth mb


If you can get into the BIOS then your computer is working. The most likely fault is the HDD settings make sure you try with AHCI selected as well as with any other settings. You don't say if the HDD is showing in the BIOS. Check all of your connections are good and, especially your drive connections. Make sure the Boot priority is Optical drive before HDD.

Giga Byte GA81RM REV 2.2 does not boot


Hi,

Try clearing the CMOS by either taking the motherboard battery out for 20 minutes or moving the plastic jumper that is next to the battery to the other possition.

If this does not work then you are probably looking at a replacement motherboard.


Regards.

No HD audio via HDMI after upgrading to Windows 7.


Hi, pls go to control panel/sound & audio devices. Then select your output audio device there. It's probably set on your headphone I think. If you are getting audio from headphone , this means that the audio driver is installed.
Pls contact me for further info.

New build pc no boot... black screen


Try to remove the battery from the MB, and next time you try to install WIN XP, when you are asked how to format your drive, chose quick NTFS formatting; disable floppy drive in BIOS, because it might try to boot from it (and I suppose you don't have one), and in boot sequence (BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY) set cd-dvd as first, and HDD as second, and turn off any other device as bootable

You dont need any driver since your PC is configured as x64 bit processor so all you got to do is get hold of the XP OS which is meant for x64 compatible PC's. The one normally used is 32 bit named as x86. I hope u wont face any difficulty in getting hold of x64 based OS(XP)......sodeep

XP to vista and install sata drive


Yes vista will format & install on the new drive. Just make sure if there is an o/s on the old drive that you set up windows vista as a dual boot if you wish to keep using the o/s on the old drive. Hope this helps.

I want to install RHEL3.0 in SATA DeskStart HD using MSI SATA MB, but not detecting at OS installation time. HOW i can detect, Pls help me!!!!


You need to create a space for which to install Linux. That likely means resizing Windows. Partition Magic is a good Windows utility to accomplish this, although there is a Linux version called Gaprtedthat will do essentially the same thing. You download the Gparted live cd, burn to disk, and run it from your computer. You must go into "setup" and set your Bios to boot from CDROM before booting the Hard Drive. Once booted, follow the on screen instructions. Resize Windows, (but NOT before a thorough defrag of your Windows drive), and create a "blank space" for Linux. Afterward, boot your Linux distro, (RedHat 9 was a great distro, but a newer version of a Red Hat based distro would serve you better, sayCentOS or Fedora Core), and follow the online instructions. Good Luck!

Error mes


Hi,

Go to the motherboard's CMOS/BIOS setup, normally by pressing "Del" button to enter setup immediately on powerup before XP boots. Set you PC to boot from the CD ROM and not your HD. Thereafter, go through the installation procedure again. You need to format the HD again to clear all former failed installation.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back info on motherboard brand and model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.

System is no boot neither with cd-rom nor hard disk


Hi, Based of your post/description and assuming not hardware problem, you may have to set up the priority boot device in the BIOS to CD. This will tell your mb to look for a boot medium from the cd first. This is normally in the Advance Setup/1st Boot Device. Of course soon as installed, you have to boot from the HD next time. Good luck and kind regards.
