Restart your computer during the boot process you will a certain key to press to enter set up usually the Delete or F2 key this will vary depending on your operating system and computer Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys navigate to Advanced Bios features press enter you will see the boot order Change the first boot device to your hard drive.

It can be many things. If the sound is clicking that is not good. Can you boot to windows? if you can i will describe you what to do then. The problem is that your os can't read boot to start your operating system. Try to hit del before start and set everything to safe defaults, and try again. When did this problem accured, did you install something , maybe remove some hard disk ? The data can be restored, if you have some other empty hard disk insert it inside , remove this that is clicking, install windows again on new hard, after all that insert bad hard disk bad, boot form new hardrive and you will se your old hard disk ( if it is recognized) if not go to computer management -> disk management and see is it listed there... send me some info so we can procide

Under BIOS setting, set your hardrive to IDE instead of SATA, or use Win XP CD that contains Sata AHCI driver in order to recognize the hardrive.

Problems loading OS in Gateway desktop


Normally installing the os on a different mechine, and then putting into another pc dosent work.

If the hardrive is the oringinal drive, which came with the system, and you want to install xp on, you will have to use a dos disk with fdisk on it, delete all partitions on the drive and create a new partition, then start loading windows, it will give you the option to format the drive for nt(ntfs) file system and setup windows.

If you do that and it still gives you protecting files error, you will have to take the side panel of the computer tower, unplug from the mains and take the cmos battery out for about 30 secs, put the battery back in, plug in the mains and reboot the computer, start loading windows again
Hope this helps and post back if you need further assistance.

Try going to the bios and reset the bios to load factory defaults and then reboot. If the same thing happens try taking the hard drive out and reboot, if the same thing happens again its not your hardrive because it would say no boot disk after post. Iam guesing it may be a bios fault because after the logo it goes blank not while loading the os(operating system).

Give this a try and post back your findings.

RE: EXTERNAL HARDRIVE..


Disconnect the USB drive
Boot to Safe Mode (F8 at boot), then open device manager (Right Click MY Computer, Properties, hardware tab, devicemanager button) then find the USB Root hubs and delete them
Reboot in the normal mode, go back to device manager, usb root hubs, right click each, properties, power management tab, uncheck the check box to let windows power off the hub (On by default)
reboot, connect drive, see if it detects.
If it doesn't. open Disk Management (Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000
and see if it is seen then but has a conflict with the drive letter.
If that doesn't resolve, try drive on another system.
