Install an operating system (Windows Server 2008) on a used HP


Hi, Have you checked the BIOS? Check the Backup ROM option (change to Backup ROM)
If you haven't change the Boot Order: Go into RSBU and change the Order.
Note: If you have Scsi you do not need to do any additional things rather than this. If your product has a Smart Array Controller, during the POST, press F8 during the Smart Array controller ID to access the configuration utility, delete and re-create the disk array to wipe out whatever might be on the disks.
Feel free to contact again. Let me know what happened.
Thanks for contacting Fixya! (Please rate the answer as well)

Non;system disk or disk error


This issue may occur if your start device (such as a floppy disk drive, hard disk drive, or CD-ROM drive) does not contain boot files.

To resolve this issue, use one or more of the following methods, and then restart your computer:
  • Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the floppy drive or the CD-ROM drive.
  • Change your computer's boot sequence. To do this, you must change your computer's setup and the option that controls which device your computer uses to start from. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed.
  • If you start your computer from a hard disk drive, install a bootable operating system (such as Windows XP) on the drive.

This means that the data inside the D drive is gone. If you had deleted the D drive data or had gotten rid of this partition then your outta luck in trying to restore your system back to factory settings (getting windows reloaded).

All is not lost if you are willing to pay HP/Compaq for their restore CD's this will get your laptop and running again. I paid a copy of these CD's 3yrs ago and cost me $45CDN to get them.

Non-system disk or disk error


Is you cd-rom drive shot - are you trying to boot up your computer through an xp or windows cd? If it is, it's not going to recognize and boot up. You'd be best getting a new drive - look around for someone with a Compaq Evo 800cp. They have the same exact cd-rom drive. Here are your compatible cd-rom devices:
TEAC DW-224E-A
or a Compaq DVD-ROM DRN-8080B
otherwise try a HP SD-C2612. I have these three drives. They all work really well.

Run Compaq Array Configuration Utility


Hi Foambob,

Try all means to get a smartstart CD.
Normally new version will be able to use on older hardware , but no guarantees.
I have always found it easier to use smartstart CD auto mode.
You can also do the install and then run ntssd to update all the drivers etc., but I don't recommend it for novices. Use the auto mode , it takes longer but safely and surely.

Good luck
