    If you are trained enough in computer hardware, try to disconnect the power (molex) to one of these devices and see if it helps

Operating system not found


Don't take this the wrong way, but start by making sure there is no floppy disk in the drive, CD ROM, or sometimes even a USB flash drive can cause booting to fail. If the boot order is such that those devices are checked before the HDD then you could see this message.
Also, if you have installed another Hard Drive recently then the BIOS can sometimes choose to boot from the wrong drive and you can get this error as well.

Bootable device has not been dectected


When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either thehard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press anykey" First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk inthe floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it maybe a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case andre-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to themotherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this harddrive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to anUSB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if thiscomputer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard driveis faulty.
To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computerand then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's devicedrivers and your programs.

Disk drive not reading disks. Light stays on all the time.


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the ribbon-cable from the motherboard.
Flip it end-for-end.
Reconnect it.
Turn the computer on.
The light should normally be OFF, until you access the media.

DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER


your system either does not detect a bootable disk, or the HDD has failed. Disconnect any floppy disk, USB storage devices connected to the computer and make sure the HDD with an OS installed is the primary boot device. If you get the same error, remove and reconnect the hard drive. If all else fails, try repairing or reinstalling Windows. If nothing works, you may need to get a new HDD.

Trying to boot from windows CD and not working


If its the full windows xp cd by booting it from the cd drive it will erase everything and ask if you want to upgrade or advanced install I think. Your correct in choosing the atapi cd-rom as 1st boot device. The cd should be in the drive on startup. IDE is the type of hard disk drive. I'm guessing the FDD stands for floppy disk drive which you might not have that many but you have that many bay windows available.

Put disk in, shut down computer, Start computer and it should give you the xp disk contents. Be aware of data loss though.
