Floppy works right? So you need to boot from floppy disk, install USB drivers in DOS and then access an external USB device... whew. OK, so getting a dos 6.22 boot disk is easy, then you have to load a DOS-level USB device driver that 'recognizes the chipset in your USB controller/port and can turn it 'ON'

Go here and READ ;-) They have everything you need (except for my expert help)

Good luck!
P.S. There are many DOS-level drivers out there, if you don't find one for your PC, make a noise and I'll see if I can help

Solutions

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source

Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.

Note: This error has also been known to occur when a memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it. If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras, ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer.

If you are attempting to boot from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files or is corrupt.

If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive.

Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.

Press any key to boot from the CD

Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.

Note: If you are not receiving the above message and your BIOS boot options are set properly it's also possible that your CD-ROM drive may not be booting from the CD-ROM properly. Verify the jumpers are set properly on the CD-ROM drive.

Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS

Verify that your computer hard disk drive is properly setup in the CMOS setup. Improper settings can cause this error.

Corrupt NTLDR or NTDETECT.COM file

How do i download music to a 2GB Kingston Datatraveler


Hi,
Such kind of flash disks or external pen drives, shown as a new disk when you attached it to computer.

Please plug-in your kingston to usb port of your computer.
Open an file explorer (or double click on to the "my computer" icon).

You can see the drives currently attached to your system. If there is a floppy drive it named with the letter A.

Your hard disk(s) identified by the letters starting with C and CD/DVD rom D.

Your kinkston also shown with the next letter just after the HDD and CD/DVD under normal conditions.

Please click onto the letter that identifies your kingston and see the content at the right pane.

You can then copy your music files and paste into the kingston .Like normal file operations.

regards.

Trying to install XP when disk selection comes up it reads, "Unkown disk. There is not disk in this drive". NOt sure what that means.


your drive is not being read,
have you set BIOS to boot from CD ROM,

Do the following
1 go to BIOS and re-set to BOOT from CD ROM
2 use another copy of XP/Win98/Vista etc to verify if CR ROM is reading the CDs else...
if you doubt CD ROM drive has a problem....
3 use a USB external CD ROM, and to do that u need to re-set the BIOS to boot from USB CD ROM

When my Maxtor basic External Hard Drive is conected my PC won't boot up.


Verify in the BIOS setup (usually accessible by pressing F2, F12, or Del at boot), "Boot Device" submenu, that the system isn't programmed to also boot from an external device. If it is, it will try to boot off the Maxtor, but won't be able to since there's no OS there.
The system should be configured to start off the internal hard disk, and optionally the CD-ROM. Other options (ROM BIOS, PXE, USB, etc.) are usually best left deactivated or at lowest priority.

Boot windowsxp from USB drive not from Cd/Dvd drive


Your BIOS would need to support booting from USB. If it does then you would see the option 'Boot from USB' in the section of your BIOS where you select the boot order. Select the Boot from USB option then set the USB drive to 1st boot device.

I cant store video files in my kingston 32gb pen drive pl tell about service center in india


Sir/Ma'am
Bigger isn't always Better..... most older laptops out there cannot READ/WRITE or even understand a USB drive bigger than 8Gb (some not even 4)

It may be that your 32Gigger is too big for the PC to handle and b/c this is all a function of the BIOS and USB Controller chipset in the laptop, it cannot easily be changed.

BUT... Look on the Tech sites to see if there is a BIOS update/patch or fix for your laptop to enable it talk to the big USB drives, and Download it if there is.

Then all you need to do is make a DOS boot disk, add that updater file you downloaded, add and edit an Autoexec.bat file to automatically RUN the updater, reboot your Laptop with AC/120/240volt cable plugged in, and boot from the floppy you just made.

Very important: Once the BIOS updater is launched and running, it MUST absolutely finish by itself. You CANNOT and MUST NOT stop it or let the battery die (why you need AC cable)

When it is done, it will tell you to power off and/or Reboot. This can take 1minute or many hours (sigh). When you reboot, the Laptop will read/write your massive 32Gb USB Memstick.

Sir,i want to know how to make a kingston usb pen drive bootable?


This only works IF your motherboard BIOS supports it. You may be able to FLASH your BIOS and upgrade to this functionality. Easy way to find out, go into BIOS and look for Boot Order or Boot device and see if USB Device is an option. If so, make it FIRST, CDROM 2d and HDD last (so you don't have to do this again) Save and exit.
Then go here and grab the instr: http://www.bootdisk.com/pendrive.htm
