It's probably the jumper settings on the hard drive. You can try cable select but I usually prefer just setting it as a master. Let me know if that works.

Disk boot failure


Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and re-seat (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 restart.

I am attemping to load linux, ubuntu, on to a dell with an intel board, it is not accepting the hard drive during install of the os, i was wondering if there was was mother board reason, a jumper fix?


you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
if its not accepting your hard drive test the leads that attach from motherboard to hard drive make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or replace them they could be faulty

Hitachi sata 120 gb hard disk lock & password



When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also if this is a desktop computer

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps

The drives are not recognized in the post. It will not go to bios. the motherboard is a m2n78-la


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions, DE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs all electrical power and data to travel through every working device its and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your ram and cmos battery are securely seated with no dust in sockets
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS

hope this will help

Have a FIC K8-800T Motherboard. Works fine with 1 SATA drive. Does not recognize second SATA Drive if drive is very large


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to IDE-1 means Pri slave escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

you will have to have master with slave set up

you can find the jumper location next to the power on a hard drive and the settings for plastic jumper location is usually printed on the top of a hard drive

IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?
IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?

Hope this helps

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.
