First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

If you deleted all the system settings, it's hard to recovery it by no other resources. So reinstall is the only options most likely.
It depends your OS X system version to decide how to recover.
If it's below OS X 10.7, there might be a DVD disk came with your Mac computer, use that DVD disk to boot your machine to reinstall OS X. Otherwise, there should be a recovery volume could be used to boot.

To boot from DVD, take look at: "Troubleshooting Mac OS X installation from CD or DVD"<http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2956>.
Too boot from Recovery volume: OS X: About OS X Recovery <http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4718>
Here is a big picture of OS X recovery: http://www.apple.com/osx/recovery/

Or go to any Apple Store to get genus tech help.

you have to change the priority of the boot device for booting the os .means if you are booting the os from the cd rom then change the priority to cd rom to first position and if you are using the pen drive then change the priority to pd to first position.

No boot device available- strike F1 to retry boot F2 for setup utility


you can try this steps to resolve your issue:
1. clean your disc drive with white cloth and alcohol
2. try to re-install the OS
3. if this won't work try to download another boot disk like EBCD
or ask a friend to create you a boot disc and try to boot your computer with it.

- This can rule out or confirm a Bad Windows OS disc, thus let's you install you Windows OS in the process.

4. try to re-install again the OS

Unable to install XP OS to MSI lap top


Insert your installer to the lap top then try to change the boot up priority by entering the bios. Try to press del key while your lap top boot. If these deosn't wok try F1 or F2 thesame process. If you have enter the BIOS, look for the boot priority which includes the First Boot, 2nd Boot and 3rd boot. Change the 1st boot to CDROM and the 2nd boot to hardisk. Then save the changes by pressing F10. your PC will reboot and it will direct you to the OS installation.

Cant we install multiple OS if i install multiple OS only the new OS will be booted the recent OS will be gone


that is because you are installing over the old one or simply upgrading the old OS, if you want a "multiboot" system each OS has to have its own directory on the drive, IE windows vista installed to c:\winvista and windows XP installed to c:\winxp your c:\boot.ini file which is where boot information is stored should update itself automatically, i do not suggest messing around in this file if you do not know exactly what you are doing as you could render the system unbootable

My computer won't boot to second operating system.I have 2 OS and can't select the one I want to boot to. Please help..


Most OS require that as you install them you select how / where you install.

If you selected the same directory as your first installation then you will not be given an OS boot option.

For dual OS it is normal to select a second drive as the location.

If you had two OS before and they were working fine then you may have corrupted the boot loader in some way.

Knowing which two OS's you have may have been useful as Linux brings new challenges to the table.

Windows not booting


Hello,

Regarding on your problem, the main issue their is the booting problem of XP after you delete the fedora operating system. That's common problem especially when the computer are in dual boot OS then you delete the other OS. Now, the reason why it usually fall into this problem its just because the XP is your core OS then you install Linux Fedora inside in XP so whatever changes you have done in fedora particularly deleting Linux OS inside XP affects the overall performance of your XP and eventually if you delete the Fedora without proper unistallation process done by Linux OS then the Boot Loader of your XP will also corrupt or delete that's the main cause of boot failure in your XP OS. Now the best solution there is to repair your XP by inserting the XP CD Installer and boot the CD to repair your OS or you can reinstall the XP OS without formatting the storage to prevent the lost of your data that has not yet already copyed a back up.

Please do this recommendation to save and restore your XP.

thanks

Boot Loder Problem when working with two operating System


best practice it when installing windows and linux install windows first and then linux. GRUB or LILO boot loader is much better then windows boot loader and very easy to reinstall. Mandriva cd should have a rescure feature that will allow you to reinstall the boot loader.
