Where can I purchase a system disc for a Asus m2n Sli motherboard having an award Boot Block V1.o Bios?

If the computer is asking for a system disc, then what it is really saying is that it cannot find the Operating System. This usually means that one a a few things:

1. The BIOS is not set to select the internal hard drive as the boot device. This can change by accident or if the BIOS gets corrupted.

2. The OS itself is corrupted and cannot boot.

3. The HDD (hard drive) has failed.

When you say you need a "system disk", what you really need is to reload the Operating System. You can get Windows from many sources. Then you only need the drivers that are specific to the main board you have. These can be downloaded for free from the ASUS website. Just go to support, downloads, select you main board model and revision, and download the drivers for your particular Operating System. Of course, if the problem is hardware related, simply getting a new OS will not completely solve the problem. A BIOS corruption would be the worst possible issue since that would require a reflash of the BIOS, and hopefully it would be in good enough condition to perform one without crashing completely. The simplest problem would be if the BIOS was simply not looking at the hard drive as a boot device. Go into the BIOS and ensure that the internal hard drive is selected as the first boot device. If not, make it such and then save and reboot to see if the problem is solved. Otherwise, you need to ensure that the hard drive itself is not faulty. If it is ok, then a new OS and reloading of the drivers and other programs is necessary.

DELL 5150 hard drive error 7

Error code 7 means that your hard disk drive failed and is defective. As for reloading windows XP, I wouldn't. It's not supported by Microsoft any more. I would load Win 7 after replaceing the drive.

I have a windows 98 system bios and i wish to Put a differnt Hard drive in that has windows xp on it . Is there a way to do this

It probably won't work. Win 98 machines not only had older BIOS but also the processor was older and most importantly the video was older. XP may just not be able to recognize these parts. In my lab I use an old Dell laptop that was made specifically for Win 98. I was able to install XP but the graphics stay in four color mode as there were no drivers ever written for XP. Also the hard drive with XP was probably formated using NTFS while Windows 98 (unless modified) only recognizes FAT. Good luck and sorry

I want to replace my hard drive in a dell dimensions 4300 pc. The original operating system was Win ME (Dell OEM) with an upgrade to XP Home (Dell OEM). How do I reload the operating system?

If you have the oprating system disk with you thats the most convenient way to install the OS. Else the only option left for you is to contact dell and then order a new OEM disk which costs only $10 - 11 which is very less as compared to the price of a new OS
