Re: non-system disk or disk error

It's either the MBR damaged, or the good old fashion "must be master or slave." Check if the HD is visible in the bios. If it is, try to save you data first with any type of pe disc (some even let you scan and fix the mbr), and a flash or portable hard drive. Next install windows or fix the mbr. If it's not visible, check the motherboard connectors of the ide cables. Make sure nothing is bent, then set your drives to slave and master. Even if it's a single drive set it to master. Last but not least, check your boot priority. Make sure either the cd or hd is first.

Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive.
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.

Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.

Media Cable Failed check cable

Just check the hard disk cable that it is fitted properly in the hard disk and in the motherboard also.
You buy another cable for hard disk which is called 80 conductor cable.
