the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during
boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify
BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if
it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and
Log into the bios and change the boot order to boot from the CD - it will then boot up your CD system Disk first
As the PC boots - you should see a message to get into bios/setup
usually F10, F2 or del key varies buy manufacturer
then look for the bios section for boot order and make sure the CD/DVD drive is set to before the harddrive
If you don't have the disk you can try contacting the manufacturer, they sometimes have a copy of the Operating System disk backed up on your hard drive. If so they can tell you how to access it to restore/flash the bios.
