Download the GParted Live utility and the HP USB Format Tool via the links in Resources.
Insert your USB stick into the computer. Run HP USB Format Tool. Select your USB stick and then choose the FAT or FAT32 format options. Click "Start."
Extract the files from the GParted Live zip file. Select the USB stick as the destination.
Open a file browser and navigate to the USB stick. Select "utils" > "win32" > "makeboot.bat." Double click on "makeboot.bat." Enter "Y" when prompted.
Power off your computer leaving the USB stick inserted.
Connect your portable hard drive to another USB port.
Power on the computer and quickly press "F8" through "F12" to access your boot menu.
Check your computer or motherboard manual for the exact keystroke.
Select the USB stick as your boot source and press "Enter." Allow the Gparted GUI to start.
Select the external portable hard disk drive. Click "Partition" on the menu bar.
Hover over "Format to" and select "NTSF."
If you are unable to create or format the partition, select delete partition.
This will erase all data on the external hard drive. Confirm partition deletion. Select the external drive again. Click "Partition" and hover over "Format to" then select "NTSF."
Select the external hard disk drive again. Click "Partition" on the menu bar and then "Manage Flags." Check the box next to "Boot." Save and apply changes to the drive.
Power off your computer and remove the USB stick.
Install the OS
Insert or plug your OS installer, usually a DVD, CD or USB thumb drive, into the computer. Power on the computer and access the boot manager again.
Select the source containing your OS installer and press "Enter."
Enter your personalization and registration information if required.
When prompted, specify the portable hard drive as the install directory.
Begin the installation normally.
Restart the computer when prompted and access the boot menu again. Select the external hard drive as your boot source and press "Enter" to ensure the installation succeeded.
Use this process to boot from your portable drive on any computer.

There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.
The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors an outdated BIOS and damaged or loose IDE cables
Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a non-bootable source.
This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from.
make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
if its a flat ribbon 40 pin IDE it will be the fist to fail
make sure all power and data leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs
data and power to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
also make sure you have set it boot from you hard drive in BIOS
The solutions is very simply... remove your hard-disk and attached to other PC or laptop as an external hard-disk.
When it is detected, go to my computer, right-click, untick that (stupid) option, immediately you see the message uncompressing and its done. Put your hard-disk back in to your machine its ready..
insert your OS CD
go to DOS window and type in your OS driver (usualy C:/
type in bootrec /FixMbr
then type in bootrec /fixboot
hen type in bootrec /rebuildbcd
then type in exit
restart your computer
it will work 100% only if you prompt at the same order
