Compaq Mini 700EL hdd not recognised


If you are installing Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

DISK DRIVE NOT WORKING


If your Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is not working and assuming that this is also your boot disk for starting the laptop, then you have several possible causes:
1. The HDD has failed / died / become non-operational and will need to be replaced and your operating system reloaded or restored from a backup if you have one.
2. The computer BIOS has lost the configuration for the HDD and doesn't recognise it as a valid boot device. In this case, you would need to go into the BIOS settings and check to see what HDD devices are beig detected, then look at the Boot options within the settings and ensure that the HDD is selected as the main boot device.
Note: It is normal to have other removable devices set ahead of the HDD such as CD / Diskette or USB devices.
3. The HDD boot sector has become corrupted and the computer no longer recognises the disk as a valid boot medium. You would need to repair the HDD if this is possible using an alternative boot media such as the Hiren's Boot CD which you would need to download as an ISO CD image then burn on to a blank CD disc, then boot from. The DOS programs on the Hiren's CD provide a very good HDD repair tool called HDAT2.
An alternative approach would be to remove the HDD from the laptop and connect it as a slave in a different computer and then perform any repair activities from that system.

Just bought a brand new Gigabyte M68M-S2P and im getting a Disk Boot Failure on my HDD which uses an IDE connector. Not sur whats going wrong, and going into the BIOS its not recognising the hard drive as...


Hi,

Is this a new HDD? Disk Boot Failure means it cannot boot from the HDD. Plus you mentioned that it is not detected on the BIOS. You need to have this HDD replaced. Not even a reformat can help at all. It is a hardware problem you have there.

Am trying to reistall Win XP. Have run Fdisk and reformatted HDD. PC will not recognise install CD, keeps coming up with errors, does not find CD or HDD. Hav also tried running setup from floppy, again...


IF the hard drive is a SATA hard drive, you will first of all need to download the SATA drivers for te motherboard and copy them to a Floppy drive on another computer if yours will not work, this may also affect why it is not "seeing" the Cd drive if this is a SATA one too

Try installing Windows and when the message " press F6 if you want to ...." appears, have the floppy inserted in teh floppy drive so it can find thr SATA drivers, it will then recognise the Hard drive and install

If you have further problems please repost

My Toshiba M55-S135 laptop has a PXE-E61 Error upon starting. I did make sure the Boot is set to HDD first and LAN LAST! Still have this issue. It won't even run the Toshiba recover cd. Please help me....


Is your BIOS actually recognising your hard disk drive.
It sounds to me very much like it isn't seeing your hard disk as a physical drive and therefore as the "last option" it is trying to load a PXE image from a network server via your LAN connection.

Can you not remove LAN from your boot options completely and see then if you get message similar to

"Operating System Not Found"

My advice would be first to see if you can boot from a CD if you can boot from a CD e.g. Windows Setup CD or Knoppix then my best advice would be to test with a new hard disk drive and try installing your operating system onto a new hard drive.

Bootmgr is missing


You have formatted the HDD in another computer and the “boot manager” was destroyed.
There is no operating system on the HDD and therefore the error message: “BOOTMGR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" appears

The second message “PXE-M0F: Existing PXE ROM” says that the notebook tries to boot form the LAN but it’s not able to find an OS using the LAN connection!

Why all this error messages appears?!
Well, I think the CD/DVD drive cannot read the inserted WinXP CD and therefore in switches to LAN.

Note; You can boot from the drive by pressing the “C” button immediately after notebook starting or you will press the F12 to get the booting menu. Then you could choose the ODD as booting source.

If you will be not able to boot from your WinXP CD I assume either the CD is faulty or the CD/DVD drive cannot handle this CD.

NEED TO REFORMAT


If you put a BootCD in the CD drive then turn the system on you should be able to format the HDD from the CD. Also, your new operating system disk should allow you to reformat the HDD. Just put the CD in and start the computer up again. Watch for a message to press the spacebar or any other key to boot from the CD.

Can't start up the laptop as Media test failure


You may have to go back into the bios and see if there is an option to automatically find HDD, or you may have to manually enter them in the Standard Bios Settings. It may be that the old HDD are still in the bios's recognised setup.
