When computer boots, press F2. You can also press F10? or F12? to access other menu. You should set cd rom as first bootup device. Otherwise search command prompt in search menu on start menu

My Hp Pavilion will not boot windows Xp all I get is, file is missing or corrupt. /Windows/inf/biosinfo.info Will not go into safe mode, or let me install Windows XP from cd, Do not have recovery disk


William, LEAVE THE BIOS ALONE.

Could be bad harddive, or it could just be corrupted boot files on the harddrive.
You really DO need the Restoration Disk.

A moment if I may;

Next time you buy a computer; Laptop Or Desktop, and
IF it does not come with a Restoration Disk; when asked MAKE a Backup disk.

When a computer is new, and is fired up for the first time; you are asked if you wish to make a Backup Disk. THIS, is the Restoration Disk. Just has the Basic Windows files.

IF you click on 'Don't Show Me Again', or wait too long, the option is GONE.

In the US the Restoration Disk is free. The shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

(I checked here in the States. {Called} The above still applies)

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/phone-assist.html

For other countries use HP Support Worldwide, for the HP Support contact phone number,

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html

(If you are not in the US William, I wonder if I could ask a favor. Can you tell me if the rates are comparable in the country you are in, and is it easy to get the Restoration Disk, or a hassle? I like to help people around the world, and feel this info may be beneficial )

When you get the Restoration Disk;
Go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options, set the first boot device to CDROM.

(CDROM will be moved to the top of the Boot Order list)

Your statement of, "....or let me install Windows XP from CD"

Full Installation CD?
Know this; Windows does NOT like to be written over, with the SAME build of Windows, or a lessor version.
(Lessor version for WinXP would be Win ME, Win2000, Win98SE)

BIOS Setup > Boot Order > First boot device is CDROM; will force Windows to boot from the CD.

AS SOON AS YOU PRESS the Power On button, start tapping on the enter BIOS Setup key. The key is displayed on the HP Invent logo page, at the Bottom. The enter BIOS Setup key for your Pavilion ZE4900 Notebook PC is F2.

(The window of opportunity goes by F-A-S-T. Using the above method will get you in )

Use the appropriate Arrow key, and highlight -> Boot Order
Use the Down Arrow key to highlight CDROM.
Look at the navigation guide at bootom, and right side.

Use the appropriate key to move CDROM to the TOP of the list.
May be the Minus ( - ) key, or Page Up/Page Down key/s.

When CDROM is at the top, press the Enter key.
-> SAVE CHANGES
IF, you do NOT save changes it will be like you have done nothing at all.
(You haven't)

May be a Y for Yes, or N for No, or Yes/No listed. Highlight Y, or Yes.
(Capital Y is just shown for clarity. Press the lower case y )

Then press the Enter key.

The laptop will restart. Open the optical drive tray, insert the Restoration Disk, close the optical drive tray.

Didn't work?
Press the CTRL key, ALT key, and DELete key AT THE SAME TIME.
This will restart the laptop, and Windows will boot from the Restoration Disk.

WHEN asked choose -> Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

IF, you choose Full Install, (Destructive Installation), you will WIPE ALL of your personal info off.
Photos, videos, music, programs/applications you have downloaded, and installed; programs/applications you have physically installed from disk/s; documents you have downloaded, or created.

If you have never entered BIOS Setup, or changed the Boot Order; the above may look intimidating to you.
Just post back in a Comment, and I will guide you. Post what you see, and what the problem is.

Harddrive is bad? Restoration Disk won't fix it. WILL put your basic Windows back on the NEW harddrive, however.

Regards,
joecoolvette

How can i boot my dell studio from cdrom so i can reinsall from external drive?


Turn on the machine, press F12 once the Dell splash screen is displayed, the boot menu will show up. From the Boot Menu, use up-down arrow keys on the keyboard and highlight the CD/DVD/CD-RW and press Enter.You will see another menu, select "Boot from Cd-Rom" and press enter to select it. The system will boot up from the CD-Rom. Please note that this settings is only for one time boot, once the system is restarted, the boot sequence will be restored to the previous saved settings. If you wish to set it from the Bios, enter the Bios settings by hitting F2 or Delete (should be shown at the bottom of the Dell splash screen) while you see the Dell Splash Screen. In the Bios settings menu, go to Boot options and make the changes with the boot sequence.


Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a dell dimension 3000 desktop. I removed a cd rom drive and replaced it with a audigy sound blaster front panel drive. when I boot my PC it says primary drive not found, press F1 to continue, Press...


Your computer is configured to recognize specific devices in your computer. If you removed the CDROM drive, you need to tell your computer that it's gone, and that you're aware of it. That message is kind of like a "Hey, there's something missing from your computer... did you know about this?"

You should boot your computer up and get into the BIOS. When your computer turns on, you'll see a message in the corner that says something like "Press F2 for BIOS" or something like that. Get into the BIOS menu using this option. When you get into the BIOS, you'll need to find the sub-menu called "IDE Devices" or something referring to IDE drives. You should see two IDE channels, with two possible devices per channel. You should see the entry where your CDROM drive used to be - change this option to "Disabled" and then save your settings and reboot the computer. The message should go away. Good luck!

How to boot from cdrom


I believe you hit F10 key to enter bios. Go to the advanced menu and select boot options. You can select in there what order the computer tries to boot from different options. You need to select boot from CD and put it in sequence before the hard drive. Most bios versions well give you a first, second, third boot device and so on. Set first device to CD rom, second to Hard drive 0, third to none unless you use a floppy drive to boot from (rare).

I am not able to boot from cdrom of my system


Enter pc bios. can you see your cdrom listed in the MAIN menue? Goto Boot. Set your cdrom to first boot device.
Make sure you have a bootable CD in the cdrom. Still can't boot to the cdrom? Think about swapping it out or getting a new one.
