For this problem it only means that the Hard Disk of the computer is not being detected

Try doing the ff:

  • reseat the IDE or SATA cable of the Hard Disk
  • Clean the port where the cable is connected (make sure that the computer is unplug)
  • reboot the computer
  • if problem persist contact computer manufacturer
Hope this will help
Thanks

Your computer cannot find a boot-able storage device, i.e. hard disk drive, to boot from. Either your hard disk drive is defective or the OS (operating system software) is corrupted and needs to be re-installed.

My dell d2400 will not boot up, I get the primary drive 1 not found, strike f1 to continue, f2 to run the setup utility


when the operating systems was setup on your hard drive, the incorrect partition was set. this causes that screen to appear. more often people will choose that way so that you may have full advantage od a smaller hard drive. this will not affect the performance of the system in any way. the fact that you have to hit the f1 key on startup is just an inconvenience.

sounds like your floppy drive is failing, you could get it replaced or simply turn it off via the BIOS.
to turn it off simply hit the F2 key. On the first screen usually it will list your Hard Drives, CD ROMs', and the Floppy. scroll down to the floppy and hit enter ot the corresponding key form the bios's legend at the bottom or right hand side of the screen untill you see disable.
Next you can navigate to Save & exit or hit F10 to do the same. G/L.

Dell2 2400 BIOS F2 reads backwords.


It sounds like you may have the IDE cables hooked up backwards on your motherboard.. The IDE cable slot on the motherboard labled IDE1 should be where your Hard drives are if you want them to read as primary. The Optical drives are usually on IDE2, designating them as secondary.
Let me know if you need more help.

Hard Drive hook up


usually on the Dimensions, it's a blue or grey SATA cable that goes from the drives to the motherboard. Dell has those as accessories, amongst others online
