SOURCE: gateway sx series sx2110g-uw318 boot menu with AMD E1-1200

It's either F1 or F2. However, once I had a Gateway which needed "Delete". You can try to put one finger on each button and press them successively. If everything goes right, you will enter BIOS and then you will have to enable lagacy usb support, change boot order so that you can boot from USB or CD (it depends...). Hope this helps!

Missing opareting system


When you saw "restart to load windows" are you restarting with a windows 7 DVD in the drive?
If so you may have to press F12 as it boots in order to invoke the boot menu and choose DVD as the temporary boot option.
Then follow the instructions for installing windows.

If you did not receive a DVD with purchase the recovery partition was on the drive which may have been wiped with active kill - you could order or borrow a DVD or install Linux.

How do I reformat my PC


Your PC may already be set to boot from the CD/DVD Drive as the first drive. If it's not you need to change it to boot from the CD/DVD Drive.

You may have to go in to the Bios to set the first boot device as CD /DVD.
To do that switch on and immediately press the Delete (Del) key or F2 or whatever key it says on the very first screen to enter the Bios.

You might have an option on the first screen to enter a Boot menu instead of the Bios where you can select which drive to boot from.
Sometimes it's F10 or F11 or F12.

When it's set to CD/DVD put the Windows disk in the drive and reboot. Then you should get an an option to "Press any key to boot from the CD DVD" it only lasts about 5 seconds, if you miss it, it will automatically start to load you current version of Windows from the hard drive. If you don't catch it in time just reboot and do it again.
Then follow any other instructions you get as it installs Windows.

HP dx6120 wont boot from cd rom and I want to install windows in a new haerd drive. Is this a bios problem? How do I deal with it.


Possibly a bios problem if the bios is not set to boot from a cd/dvd.
Press Delete key or F2 as soon as you switch on, or whichever key it needs to get in to the bios. Change the boot option to boot from CD/DVD first. Save settings and exit.

Some computers have a one time boot menu which lets you boot from whichever drive you like just for that time. Usually F11, F12, F2.

I want install windows . how i can in , my motherboard ibm , i put cd in in cdroom but no thing happen . could you tell me how to setup windows


Go into the BIOS configuration and make the CD the first boot device and the hard disk the 2nd boot device.
You can now boot up the computer with the Windows installation CD to install Windows.

I am trying to re-install windows xp on a DELL dimension 8300 but it does'nt boot it can go to the BIOS and everything but it say Boot.mgr is missing


You should use the bootable Windows XP CD to start the installation.
To do that, you must first enter the BIOS in the Boot Options select the DVD drive as first (so that it will boot from CD/DVD first, instead of the hard disk). Save and Exit, insert the bootable Windows XP CD in the drive and when prompted to do so, "press any key to boot from CD-Rom".
Hope the above helps.

For that check in bios that first boot device is your cd or dvd rom.

When you power up the computer pressF2 or "del" key to enter in bios then go to boot option then set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom then save settings then exit.
then check.
Also you can boot your cd or dvd with F12 key
Press F12 when you power up then select your cd or dvd for boot.
