    Insert operating system cd and boot from CD. Then choose your hard drive and format it in NTFS or FAT32. Now install the operating system on formatted hard drive. Thank You

Operating system not found


hi goodner,

getting the error "operating system not found" means that the hard drive where the Operating System is installed (i.e. Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7), Cannot be found by you BIOS upon the boot sequence.

When you turn the PC/Laptop, you normal see a screen that flashes flashes with screen that displays the ff:

Primary Master:
Primary Slave:
Secondary Master:
Secondary Slave:

The Primary master should have a value right next to it. If not, either the hard drive is faulty and needs replacement, cable is loose,

If you have a value to it and stil gets the same error the operating is corrupted and needs to be re-installed.

MY HP PAVILLION 305W SAYS SYSTEMNOT FOUND WHEN I TURN IT ON JUST GOT THIS COMPUTER KNOWING ITS A DINO.. BUT IF YOU COULD HELP THAT WOULD BE APPRECIATED


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