Won't boot without a windows disk...

Whenever I boot up my PC it ALWAYS checks to see if a bootable disk is in the CD drive. If it finds one, it will display the "press any key to boot from CD...." message, then boots normally, but if it can't find a disk, it says "please insert bootable media and press enter" and then does nothing, even if I put a windows disk in and press enter. Yes, I have tried setting it to boot from the hard drive first, and then tried turning off CD drive boot up entirely, but then it just sits there and does nothing after posting.

Not entirely sure if it's related, but it also randomly disconnects from my USB keyboard, causing whatever the last key I pressed to repeat itself until it reconnects the keyboard, about two seconds later. I have tried multiple USB ports and using it on my laptop, and it doesn't seem to be a problem with my keyboard.

Just taking a guess here. Did you do a fresh install of winXP? This type of problem is usually caused because the boot.ini is out of order OR your BIOS settings are not correct. Get into windows however you have to. Once in windows you'll find the boot.ini on the root of C:\ Please copy this file to a floppy disk just in case you make a boo-boo.
You need to check this file. Double left click the file & it will open in notepade. There are five lines and they must read like below, do not make a single line turn into 6 lines.
It should look just like this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect


The only differance between you & me might be the "name",
I use Windows XP Professional, yours might read Windows XP Home Edition.
Change what you need "only" and save the file. Double check. Than remove the CD from your PC and shut down. Wait a minute and start it up.

Computer won't boot error code sata disk s/n 0F00-136B and many more???


looks like hardware failure.



find out what harddisk exactly you do have in the bios :
- press Del or F1 or F2 during booting, goto IDE devices, look for the model, size (in GB) etc.,
write down (the manufacturer could be: samsung, seagate, maxtor, fujitsu...)

- then change order of boot devices so that cd/dvd-rom drive and /or 3,5 '' floppy drive boots
before the harddisk, exit saving changes (F10 or Esc)

- then get diagnosis program from the harddisk manufacturer's homepage,
copy that to a bootable floppy disk or burn it to a cd-r/cd-rw which must be bootable
- boot from the cd or floppy, run diagnosis tool, both short and long test, what does it say then?
- if hardformat is available, perform one
- might work now, at least the hd will be recognized
-setup new windows installation.
have fun

How to format a pc


You need to create a bootable CD that will delete all of the information on the hard drive permanently. Here's a source for that software: http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm It's simple: after you create the bootable disk according to the instructions at the link I provided, load it into your primary optical (CD/DVD) drive and then reboot your computer and when your PC goes through it's Boot sequence it will automatically boot from the CD you created and then you just follow the prompts. NOTE: before you run create the boot disk, you should check your boot sequence in BIOS and make sure that the the primary optical drive is first on the list or else the boot CD won't work.

Boot cd problems


You can't just put the windows cd in your cd rom drive. If your going to change your boot order (to cd), then you HAVE TO use a BOOTABLE cd. That means a bootup disk with all the correct bootable files for WINXP. Same with a floppy. Change your boot order to a floppy....and in order to bootup windows, you MUST HAVE the bootable files ON THE floppy. In your case...the cd. The windows xp does not have the bootable files since it is only used for install and reinstall.

Create a bootable CD or floppy (((from someone elses WINXP pc or laptop))). There is a feature that allows you to do that. Then when you boot to cd it will start windows and give you options.

System failure to boot


  1. Verify that your hard disk drive is setup and detected properly in BIOS. You're computer should list a hard disk drive installed either under the main page or the drives page in BIOS. If BIOS indicates the drive is not installed or not detected skip to Hard Disk drive is bad or not connected properly.
  2. Verify the boot options are properly set in BIOS, almost all BIOS setups should contain options specifying how your computer boots. For example, most computers should have their boot options setup similar to the below example.

    - Floppy drive
    - CD drive
    - Hard drive
  3. Rest your BIOS to default values. Many BIOS will enable users to reset the values to the default settings. If you've tried the above options without success try resetting the BIOS.

Compaq Presario 5WV270 Has No Oprating System


installing windows 95 on your pc would require you to have a bootable disk (either a floppy or cd)
insert your bootable disk and go to bios settings --> once you start your desktop pc, press Del key
then go to Boot menu and select your frist boot to floppy or cd (wherever your bootable disk is) then exit and save changes.
once your pc boots from the bootable disk goto C:
then make a directory (let's say Win95) --> C:\md win95
then press enter
then goto that directory which you've just created ---> C;\cd win95
then press enter
then copy your windows 95 disk on this directory
once you finished copy, run setup
be sure to remove your bootable disk the next time your pc restarts or change the boot sequence (again in Bios settings) to your harddrive as first boot
hope this helps

I cant identify the prolem


It looks like you may have a boot sector virus. A boot sector virus is one that infects the first sector, i.e. the boot sector, of a floppy disk or hard drive. Boot sector viruses can also infect the MBR. All disks and hard drives are divided into small sectors. The first sector is called the boot sector and contains the Master Boot Record (MBR). The MBR contains the information concerning the location of partitions on the drive and reading of the bootable operating system partition.

When disinfecting a boot sector virus, the system should always be booted from a known clean system disk. On a DOS-based PC, a bootable system disk can be created on a clean system running the exact same version of DOS as the infected PC. From a DOS prompt, type:
    SYS C:\ A:\
and press enter. This will copy the system files from the local hard drive (C:\) to the floppy drive (A:\).
If the disk has not been formatted, the use of FORMAT /S will format the disk and transfer the necessary system files. On Windows 3.1x systems, the disk should be created as described above for DOS-based PC's. On Windows 95/98/NT systems, click Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs and choose the Startup Disk tab. Then click on "Create Disk". Windows 2000 users should insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, click Start | Run and type the name of the drive followed by bootdisk\makeboot a: and then click OK. For example:
    d:\bootdisk\makeboot a:
Follow the screen prompts to finish creating the bootable system disk. In all cases, after the creation of the bootable system disk, the disk should be write protected to avoid infection.

Once the OS loads, run your anti-virus software and it should clean the virus.

Should this not help, I'm afraid the only other alternative would be to reformat the HDD and reinstall XP again from a bootable disc.

Hope that helps..
