Boot disk problems

I have a T3065 E-Machine, that was giving problems so I decided to reboot. The machine came with 2 disks. 1 of 3 and 3 of 3. 1 of 3 went just fine but 3 of 3 gives an error unable to read. So now I'm half way through the reboot and stuck. What can I do to save the machine? This the first time the disks have been used. Or that I've every tried this. I'm really stuck.

It sounds like you need disk 2 of 3. Contact E-machines or go to their website to see if you can download.

I added a dvd+/-r drive to my e machine T3065. I cannot get the system to write to the drive. I can read a cd on the drive but cannot copy anything to the drive any suggestions?


Reloaded the factory restoration disk? You rock!
Haven't heard of anyone who still has their disk, for YEARS now!

I imagine the DVD burner software was probably Nero.
Nero's good. But I would like to recommend a free burner software.
One I have used for years. (When I use it, lol!)

You have to have DVD burner software, in order to copy with a DVD drive. (Or CD burner drive)

One more thing glancing at your problem heading you stated;

I do not see DVD-R/W, listed. It has to be a Read/Write DVD unit, in order to copy. A DVD 'Burner'.

Post back in a Comment. Also would appreciate if you would post the DVD drive manufacturer, and it's model number.

Disk Boot Failure


There are a number of possibilities:

1. The BIOS setting for the boot device is not looking for the correct boot disk. This can happen if the modified by software or by a user unaware of the impact.

2. The BIOS battery may be dead, causing the machine to default to factory settings.

In either case above, reboot the machine, press the proper key to access the BIOS and verify that the proper device is selected as the boot disk and is first priority for boot.

3. The hard drive may have failed. The only solution here is a new hard drive, and a system reload/restore.

4. The OS may have gotten corrupted in the boot sector. TO fix this there are a few things that can be done, but for someone with little knowledge of PCs, this is dangerous territory. You can boot to the OS disk and go to the Repair Console, and attempt to do some fixes, such as CHECKDISK, and fixing the Master Boot Record (MBR), but these can result in total inability to recover. Best if you get to this point if yo can find a friend with some experience here to help.

Hello All. I am having problems starting my computer which runs Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate, and the boot.ini got corrupted. #Is there any way that i can fix this. That is the only problem why i...


Glad to HELP YOU!


You have two solutions to fix that problem:
1. Build-up a boot.ini by yourself

Go in the root of your C:\ drive and save your initial boot.ini as "_boot.ini"; now open NOTEPAD and write there:
[boot loader]
timeout=10
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate" /fastdetect

Select SAVE AS and give it the boot.ini name. Put it in the root of your C:\ and REBOOT

2. If the above mentioned doesn't work here's the second solution: download and install on your system a software called SystemSuite Professional (I think now it's the version 11...). You can find it here. This software will help you to fix MANY of your machine problems, not only the boot.ini errors. Just scroll down the page to read what it is capable to do...

GOOD LUCK!

Get a ? when trying to boot up--


This indicates that it cannot find an Operating System or further more a drive to boot from with the OS on it. You can try Holding the Option/alt key down at bootup to see if it gives you any boot options. Here is a list of a few other scenarios you can attempt :
1. Insert the software that came with the machine, then restart the computer while holding the C key. (If you do not have the Install desk at least perform the Safe Boot in #2 below.) a. The computer should start up from the disc...then b. Choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.) c. Click the First Aid tab.
d. Select your Mac Operating System volume.
e. Click Repair. Disk Utility should now check and repair the disk.
2. Then Safe Boot , (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it finishes.

Vgn-fs630w won't reboot and also when try with reboot disk it won't read...just continuous boot over and over again after "window loading" screen.


Sounds like you may have 2 problems, that is
1) corrupted windows installation or faulty Hard drive causing the constant reboot.
2) faulty CD drive or dirty laser or dirty disks.

You could try pressing F10 when you see the vaio logo which will take you to the HDD based recovery options.
Test your cd/dvd disks in another machine to make sure they are o.k if they are you can try cleaning laser in cd drive.
Or if the disks are o.k and your cd drive is faulty you could use an external usb cd drive and set the bios to boot from an external drive.

System recovery for HP Media Center m1070n


Hitting F10 is for creating the disks. To rebuild it, place the first recovery disk in the DVD player and reboot the machine. If the disk does not boot:
1. To check the drive, place another DVD in the drive and see if you get a response. 2. The boot disk check can be tested by placing the disk in your other machine. Good Luck. circe@PCTechsOnline.com

I install and bootcamp and resize the disk to 160gb. then i accidentally put the cd in the USB external cd drive. i forgot to put it in the Imac g5 cdrom drive. when i boot up.. its a mess my mac os x not...


I understand your problem to be that at the time you were executing the critical reboot just prior to installing Windows with Boot Camp, you placed the Windows CD into the wrong optical drive. Now your machine is stuck at the gray screen and is not responding to anything and will not boot from the system DVD
I have encountered this problem previously. The solution is to boot from an external drive containing a valid copy of the Mac OS. Although your machine will not boot from a DVD at this point, it WILL boot from an external drive if you hold down the Option key after you hear the startup chime, and select that drive's icon when it appears. Once you have successfully booted, go to System Preferences / Startup Disk to select the Mac partition of your internal drive, and your machine will reboot normally.

This leaves only the question of how you obtain an external drive containing a valid of the Mac OS. Some options are 1) a cloned backup drive, 2) another Macintosh via "Target Disk Mode," or 3) have someone create you such a disk from another machine. On the plus side, this solution involves no loss of your data, which makes it worth pursuing.

I am unable to fromat my IBM machine,its not


your bios maybe infected with a virus. first try removing the cmos battery in your ibm machine for 1 minute and put it back. next, make sure that the hard disk is working and is not corrupted try making a new partition in a different pc. Paste all the files from the windows xp installer to your newly made partition. next put the hard disk into your ibm pc. and wait till it boots into your hard drive and the setup will begin. make another partition for your windows xp system and install it to that directory. if you cannot boot into your hard disk, there may be a problem with your ide cables. try checking the cables from your ibm pc connected to your hard disk.pm me if you still have problems and questions.. heres my email jmizpahadonai777@gmail.com

OK I MEANT THE MACHINE IS NOT BOOTING BUT INSTEAD ITS SHOWING AN ACTIVE HYPHEN ON THE SCREEN. IT CANT EVEN BOOT OR READ OS FROM A CD.


Go into your bios settings and apply "Bios defaults",
Be sure the boot order is set to
1. CD/DVD
2. Hard Disk Drive
then save and reboot.
If the system boot, scan your drive with a good anti-virus.
If not, insert your Windows installation disk and reboot, press space if prompt to do so to boot on the CD. Reinstall Windows.
If it does not work, boot with a dos diskette, with fdisk.exe, delete all your partitions. Reinstall Windows.
