The problem is that your trying to use a hard drive with an operating system that was installed on a different computer, there will be all kinds of problems with that. Format the drive and do a clean install of windows and that should fix your problem. Hope this helps

I have a hp Proliant ML350 G5 with 4 drives 500GB each. Few days back the system was not starting prompting me that there is a probable hd failure. I have replaced it with a new one but the problem still...


"insert boot disk and press any key". This message comes when harddrive is not recognized in bios or windows system files damaged. For that first open cpu cabinet and reconnect both connection to harddrive.Reconnect RAM memory. Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del ALT+F2 key to enter in bios then make sure hardddrive is recognize in bios. Then if still same issue then you need to repair windows with disk. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

How to format only C: Drive( in NTFS) in 160 GB Hard disk


It sounds like you are booting into DOS. Dos is an old system which does not recognize NTFS partitions, only FAT/FAT32.
What you need to do is use Hiren's Boot CD (download off google).
Use it to boot and use the NTFS4Dos utility first. Then start Dos:
Or once you boot into Dos mode with the CD, type:

A:\>NTFS4DOS
.............it will list harddrive partition letters.........
A:\>C:

The above may look different as A:\> can be any drive the cd assigns. C: is also an example as you will see your drive letter in the list of harddrive partitions detected.

When i start it say Reboot and select proper boot device or intsert boot media in selected boot device


Most probably the cause is one of the following:

  • No OS installed.
  • Hard-drive connection is loose.
  • Windows is corrupt.
  • Harddrive jumper is not figured correctly (in case of IDE PATA) or it may have malfunctioned.
Disconnect the PC from the mains supply, remove the cover on the system and check for any loose cable connections of hard drive.
Check inside the BIOS whether the drive is listed and as the first boot device in Boot Order tab.

Note: During inspection take care to avoid touching any board component unnecessarily. Also avoid using force.

Windows xp will not boot


If you just installed windows then take the cd out and let the computer reboot on its own. Windows will ask you to replace the OS disk later.

So just restart the computer with nothing in the CD drive.

Also make sure in BIOS that the Hard drive is the first boot device. Don't need the CD drive as first anymore.

See if that helps.

Replaced harddrive and dvdroom wont recognize in bios


Goto bios menu. And change the setting on hard drive and cdrom. It could be it still set in the old configuration. Try to set it in auto detect. Then save the setting. Then goto bios once again to check if the settings doesn't change. Restart again and wait if something you didn't expect still happens.

Leave a comment if this solve cd rom detection.

2nd Hard drive not recognized


Hi,
If your using IDE hard drives i would try to put them both on the same cable on the primary IDE controller. Then set you main hard drives jumpers and the second hard drive to cable select not slave. Try to boot if the boot fails your goiong to need a Windows 98 boot floppy with FDISK. You need to start up the 98 boot disk with out CD support then when it reaches a command prompt start fdisk. ONce fdisk is up format and partition the second drive. Now it should work. :) Check that the harddrive is detected in the BIOS, it may have become disconnected, it should also be the master drive on the primary IDE. If the drive is not detected in BIOS there is little chance of it working

Thank you....

EPoX EP-9NPA7I displays 'F' and '5' post codes


I would start by clearing the CMOS with the reset jumper pin on your mainboard. Then remove all the PCI cards excluding the video card; disconnect the hard drive as well. Boot the computer without the RAM and see if you still get the "F post code." If not download a copy of Ubuntu Linux and burn it to a CD.

Ubuntu 8.10 Live CD

Reinstall the RAM modules and boot to Ubuntu from the CD and run "System Memory Scan" from the Ubuntu Boot Menu. I'm guessing your RAM over-heated and is permantly damaged.
Only the manufacturer knows what the error codes for your board represent; it'd email them from this support link...
