Connect the hard drive and set your BIOS to auto setup and select your old HDD as the initial boot device.When the system boots and the windows loads a new drive will appear on mycomputer. Right click on it and select format.. This will solve the issue...

If you're gonna format it using i.e a Windows XP-CD I guess you'll have to press C? H should be for booting to harddrive.

Even if you don't have driver for CD-DVD ROM with the Operating System,your BIOS must recognize the CD ROM.Set the BIOS to Default setting and check it recognise now.Check if you have disable anything related to CD ROM in your BIOS. Remove your CD Rom and place it again and check.

Drive light comes because of power supply to the CD-ROM.

If nothing works,Download the firmware update

For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

I have a new hard drive and no operating system for my laptop


well you donot need special programs you can use the same operating system to format, partition and load your operating system, after you connect your harddrive to your board go to setup Bios and look for the hardware that installed on your chip and you will see if your hardrive is recognized, After that load your operating system cd on your dvd rom and let the pc boot to that dvd drive, here the you will start loading the operating system, so you have to format, partition and then install windows, Try windows vista will make it easy for you.
Best Regards

Install CD won't boot from cdrom drive


Maybe you need to check the boot process in the BIOS and make sure that it tries to start from the CD-ROM and not the hard drive. Usually, to get to the BIOS (I don't know how much of a tech that you are), on start up, hit the "del" key when you turn it on to get to it. Once in BIOS, hit the right arrow button to goto "Boot" and move down to "Boot Priority Device" and make sure that it goes to your CD-Rom first and then your hard drive. Let me know if you have any further questions.
