Dell bootmgr is missing


Most likely cause is that the boot order in the BIOS is set up for the HDD first. When turning on the unit, press the key needed to enter setup. Once in setup, search thru the menus for the boot order. Choose the CD drive as the first boot device, then the hard drive as second. Save and exit the setup. When rebooting, ensure the WIN XP CD is in the drive. When the screen says, "press any key to boot from CD", press a key and the WIN XO CD should take over and start the install. Once WIN XP starts installing, follow directions. On each restart after that, DO NOT press the key to boot from CD. WIN XP setup will handle everything until the reinstall is complete. After you are done, you may choose to go back to setup and change the boot order back, but it is not really necessary. The only time you will get the "press and key to boot from CD" message is when there is a bootable CD/DVD installed in the drive. Otherwise, it overlooks it and goes to the next boot device (HDD).

This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in CMOS Setup or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard drive.
  1. Verify your boot options are properly set in CMOS setup. We recommend having the CD or disc drive as your first boot device and then hard drive as the second boot device.
  2. If your CMOS Setup has an option to boot from the LAN disable this option.
  3. If you have changed any CMOS settings, make sure to save and reboot the computer.
If this does not resolve the issue, try resetting the CMOS values to the default settings, save and exit.
Finally, if none of the above suggestions resolve this error go through the Invalid or Non System Disk error troubleshooting steps, which is related to this error message.

Cant find Windows Installer and my XP restore plus will not open


My suggestion would be to go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options; change the first boot device to CDROM.

Computer off. (Press the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds, or until computer turns off)

AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the F10 key.
Tap in 2 second intervals.
If you hear beeps ignore them. They are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is You that is doing it. (It's OK)

Takes a few seconds, then you should be looking at the Main menu, in BIOS Setup,

System Information
Standard CMOS Setup
Advanced BIOS Features
Advanced Chipset Features
Integrated Peripherals
Power Management Setup

PnP/PCI Configuration
PC Health Status
Load Optimized Defaults
Supervisor Password
Set User Password
Save and Exit Setup
Exit Without Saving

You CANNOT use your mouse anymore. You need to use the Keyboard.

Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight Advanced BIOS Features.
Press the Enter key.

First Boot Device
Second Boot Device
Third Boot Device
Fourth Boot Device

You want CDROM as the First Boot Device.
This FORCES the computer to boot off of a disk in the optical drive.
(CD/DVD drive)

So you will want Optical Drive as the first boot device.

BIOS Setup changes. There are different versions.
The manual is unclear, of how to move Optical Drive to the top of the list, or also can be said as move to First Boot Device.

Let's see if this method is used;
Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight -> First Boot Device
Now press the Enter key.

Use the Down Arrow to highlight Optical Drive.
Press the Enter key.
Now look at the navigation guide at the bottom. (Does NOT state navigation guide)

Use the appropriate keys to Change Value.
It should either be the + / - keys, or the Page Up/Page Down keys.

(If you can, I would use the Minus { - } key, and not use the Plus
{ + } key )

Tap the key until Optical Drive is at the top of the list, or across from First Boot Device.
Press the Enter key.

Now use the Up or Down Arrow key to highlight -> Save and Exit, and press the Enter key.

Don't have your Restoration Disk in the optical drive?
That's OK. Open the drive, put it in.
Now press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart the computer.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Restart your computer.
Press <DEL> to enter BIOS SETUP.
Look for "Boot" options, and change the "Boot Order" to make the CD/DVD the _first_ boot-device.
Save/Exit from BIOS SETUP.
Boot from the CD/DVD drive.

I have an Acer Aspire One notebook. I cant seem to start it. I turn it on and this displays : Check cable connection..! PXE-E63 : Error while initializing the NIC PXE-M0F : Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No...


It happens when no boot device is selected, the default is network boot first, you must select CDROM/DVDROM or HD as your first startup device. boot up machine and enter bios setup think its F2 key to enter bios generally it del or f1 or f2 it may say onscreen at start if f2 doesnt work
in the bios set boot order to HD as firstboot option then save and exit
hope this helps
dont know if all acers do this but also if you press f12 on boot up it gives you current boot options select HD that way is current boot and would have to be done everytime

Hard drive stops booting


Hi, If your computer stops booting from the hard drive and is asking for a boot disk, then: 1. The motherboard/PC is no longer recognizing the hard disk; 1.1 Go to your CMOS/BIOS setup and manually detect the hard disk, save & exit. 2. The CMOS/BIOS is set to boot from other devices such as CD, FDD or USB but not from the HD. If after configuring the CMOS/BIOS and the hard disk is not recognized, then it is probably defective and therefore need to be replaced. If the hard disk is recognized but will not boot, then some files of your OS needed to boot are missing, corrupt or overwritten. You would need to re-install your OS and opt for a "repair". Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things stand or should you need additional information. good luck and kind regards.
