Problem in the HP Palvalion laptop dv6607nr model

The hard disk was replaced and I configured the BIOS system to boot from the DVD/CD prior other sources but it was no luck. the system indicated the boot manager could find \\file\bcd on the recovery CD/DVD. The recovery DVD was purchased from the HP and shipped to me on July 26, 2009.

I think the image on the recovery DVD is defect. Anyone have other advices?

Try using a Windows installation disk instead of your recovery disk. If the Windows disk will boot and begin the installation process then you most likely have a faulty recovery disk. If it gives you an error there may be a malconfiguration in the bios.

Good Luck

Disk boot error


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Fatal issue: Error loading operating system


<p><b>Issue:</b><br /> <p>Error loading operating system<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <br /> <img src="matrix12_3.jpg" /> <br /> <br /> <p><b>Cause:</b><br /> <p>The MBR (Master Boot Record) either could not find a bootable partition or the bootable partition points to an unreadable on inaccessible part of the drive. This issue occurs prior to the start of any Windows code. <br /> <p>It can be caused by a power-failure while the disk is in the middle of writing, a virus damaged the entry, a failing disk drive or a serious software bug damaged the partition entry (although Windows typically protects against this). This issue cannot be easily caused by any action you performed, unless you turned off the power without going through Windows shutdown.<br /> <p>Although not stated in the message, press Ctrl-Alt-Del to reboot.<br /> <p><b>Workaround:</b><br /> <p><b>Change boot media:</b><br /> <p>If you are booting from either a DVD, CD, diskette or a USB drive, remove the media and boot from the hard disk. The media is either damaged or is not intended to be bootable.<br /> <p><b>Set the Correct BIOS Boot Choice:</b><br /> <p>The BIOS may be configured to boot from the wrong device. If you suspect this, the device boot order can be changed in the BIOS setup. Be aware there little consistency in BIOS setup operations, even with the same manufacturer on different models. As such, these instructions are bit less precise than we'd prefer.<br /> <p>1. Reboot and enter the BIOS setup. Often the BIOS displays the correct key to use briefly on screen or you may need to refer to the computer's user manual. Typically you hold down the Del, Esc, F1 or F2 key immediately after booting. <br /> <p>2. Look for a section on Boot or Booting. Often this appears on top menu. Select the Boot option, and if necessary the Boot order choice. The Boot order choices should list the order of boot devices. Typically the CD is the first boot device with the hard-disk typically second. The diskette may also occur before the hard disk, which is acceptable, although this will slow your hard disk boot by a few seconds. Avoid USB and network boots before the hard disk unless you know for sure you are using them (which is exceptionally rare). <br /> <p>3. Save and exit the BIOS. It will force a reboot. See if this change corrects the issue.<br /> <p><b>Check Hard Disk and Cables </b><br /> <p>If you had changed, added or removed hard drives, or changed or removed drive cabling, likely something is wrong. Recheck that the drives are properly installed and the cabling has not changed. Switching cables to different motherboard connectors or changing the master/slave drive jumpers (on old ATA drives) can cause this problem. In some systems, the cables were not plugged into the drive or motherboard securely and may have worked loose. Reseat all drive connectors.<br /> <p>It's also possible a hard drive is failing. Use a system diagnostic to validate the drive or swap to another hard disk.

Non system disk or desk error


When the system is booting up, go into the bios see if it "sees" the hard drive. If it does then exit and listen to the computer to see if you can hear the hard drive spin up..If not then you need to replace the hard drive.

ABit-Th7 raid Drivers


This problem is very simple.... Using RAID in booting in cd/dvd cannot be done in this kind of processing. you have to change the setting of Hard Disk and CD/DVD to IDE in BIOS . To change the setting in the BIOS you need to press the Delete After you power on the computer.. In Main menu in the bios you will find the hard disk or cd/dvd settings to IDE, SATA, and RAID. change both hard disk and cd/dvd to IDE configuration. make sure the first boot in the Boot menu is the cd/dvd, where your windows cd installer is inserted. Save the settings by pressing F10 key in the keyboard.. I have the same problem as of you because i try it to change SATA, RAID but cannot boot to cd and cannot detect the hard disk when installing OS, but in IDE settings its okay.. and it works perfect.. after you installed the windows properly, you can change the Hard Disk or cd/dvd configuration to SATA or RAID. TY

HOPE I CAN HELP
