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.

How do you get an external sata disc mounted in a dock (Thermaltake Black X dock) to communicate with a WIN 98 SE system? The box says the dock supports WIN 98 buit I cannot find drivers that work.

Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 98 over two years ago,
and stopped supporting Windows 2000 on July 16, 2010.

So, any company that manufactures "new" (in the last two years) hardware probably will _NOT_ have written device-drivers for Windows 98/98SE/NT/2000.

Does the external disk work correctly when connected to a computer running Windows XP? Vista? 7 ?
If not, then maybe the external disk itself is the problem.

I need windows 98 instalation dump or vedio

Ha! That's the first OS I ever reloaded.....ah, memories.

I most certainly can help you with this.

Here's what you need to get:

Windows 98 boot floppy from here -
(you need to know which version you are installing, Windows 98 or Windows 98SE)

Windows 98 or 98SE OEM CD

You will need to boot from your floppy disk first and format the hard drive which will prepare it for windows, then use it to boot your computer to the cd and the process will begin.

Here are some more detailed steps, the above is only in a nutshell:

That comes straight from Microsoft. Let me know if that helps you!
