The hard drive has failed and unless you have a backup of the data, it is going to be hard to get any information off the old drive.

Hi matthewbugbe,

I think what that means is it does not recognize your hard drive. If you are trying to install Windows 98 you should format your drive first.

You need to rebuild your operating system from the supplied CDROM that came with your computer. You have the classic BSOD display, Blue Screen Of Death. Its a long job but its worth it in the end to completly repair your operating system and clean up your hard drive.

SOURCE: wen i start my laptop

Hello - The message is telling you that it can't find your hard drive, which is your boot disk.

You didn't give any info about what laptop you have so I can't tell you what more to do except to find out how to boot into your system BIOS and see if the system sees any hard drive at all. If not it's most likely your hard drive has died, but there can be less dramatic reasons for the error.

So look in your manual and find out how to get into the system BIOS or come back here and give more info about your laptop (make and model and operating system) and someone will take your further along in troubleshooting the problem.

Regards,

Mikeywaf

My acer aspire one netbook AOD257 keeps telling me no bootable device insert boot disk


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

When i turn on the acer aspire one D255E it says chack cable connections no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key


it could be that the BIOS is set to boot from cd/dvd instead of boot from hard disk. if so, resetting the BIOS to default values might clear the problem. if not then check that you have not left another disc in the optical drive rather than a bootable operating system disc.
another possibility might be that, internally the hard disk drive is not properly docked into its sata port.

I know that you are unable to start the current vista operation system and getting the error 0xc00000e9; the issue can be caused by the damaged system files or hardware device. You might first follow the steps below to exclude the possibility of system corruption.


Method 1: Use the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) to run System Restore

======================================================

1. Insert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.

3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on System Restore.

7. Follow the System Restore Wizard instruction as usual and choose the appropriate restore point.

8. Click Finish to restore the system.


Method 2: Startup Repair from the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE)

======================================================

1. Insert the Windows Vista installation disc into the disc drive, and then start the computer.

2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD ...". appears.

3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next.

4. Click Repair your computer.

5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next.

6. At the System Recovery Options Dialog Box, click on Repair your computer.

7. (Click the operating system that you want to repair), and then click Next.

8. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.


Good luck!

Acer Aspire one will not start. I get a error while initializing the NIC, No bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key...There is no boot disk.. Any suggestions please..


Hi,
Its possible the computer is trying to boot from another device, as the computer starts up hit the F12 key, this should bring up boot options, select HDD if it's in the list.
If not hit F2 as it starts and enter the BIOS, look for the boot option and set the HDD as the first boot device, hit F10, save the changes and exit.
The computer will restart and hopefully boot into the operating system
Please post back if you need anymore assistance.
