THE COMOUTER READS NO OPERATING SYSTEM I INSTALL IT WITH NO OS THE COMPUTER READS THE DRIVE BUT I CAN NOT INSTALL AN OPERATING SYSTEM


  • You should have an operating system install disk (or USB drive.)
  • Restart the computer and press whatever key gets you into Startup (typically F2 or Del.) You *may* have an option that says "Boot menu" that has another key (such as F12.) If you have that, use it.
  • Find something in your BIOS that mentions "Boot order" or "Boot priority."
  • If you have a CD, make your CD the first boot device. If you're booting from USB, make it your first device.
  • Make sure your install media is in the computer, save and exit.
  • The computer should now boot from the install drive and put the operating system on the hard drive.

How to boot with usb flash drive. detailed please, I'm trying to many diff ways nothing working, bios is the only thing on comp.


It is possible to boot from a USB drive....but only if the USB drive has been formatted as bootable, in the same way that OS CDs and DVDs are bootable media. You have to have an operating system either on the hard drive or on the flash drive in order to boot the computer. The BIOS is simply a "Basic Input-Output System" that interfaces the computer hardware to the OS, whatever media it is on. That is why you have to select the boot device and the boot device priority in the BIOS during setup, so it can direct itself to the bootable OS. Once you have installed an OS, then all will work fine. Until then, you will continue to have issues. Normally, with Window-based systems (you don't say what OS you are trying to use), you would insert the bootable Windows setup disk in the CD/DVD drive, ensure the BIOS was set to boot to CD/DVD first, and start the computer. The windows setup file would load itself and start the OS install process. It may even be necessary to partition and format the hard drive during this evolution, but the setup program would lead you through that as well. I have seen Windows setup files loaded to USB sticks, but they require a special process to generate so the BIOS sees the USB as bootable.

My hard drive has system but when i try to boot from usb or cd room for new system it's freeze and doesn't start up with usb boot or cd room


You didn't provide any details on what OS you are running or trying to load, but here are some steps to verify.
1. Ensure that the procedures you used to create your bootable USB device or bootable CD are correct. These will not boot unless they have a boot loader installed properly on them.
2. While running your existing system, ensure that you can actually view the files on your USB device or CD (in case either device is not actually working).
3. Ensure that the BIOS settings set the boot priority to USB or CD ahead of the hard drive.

Sir good day for you.. ah i have a problem bout my cpu. i lost my driver so that i cant format my cpu now coz i dont have driver and then i try to download but always error i get.. so can you help me to...


you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE0 means Pri master
IDE1 means Pri slave
IDE2 means Sec master
IDE3 means Sec slave

or if you are using a USB
insert your usb drive
click start right click on my computer select open you should see your USB drive
right click then select format
another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format
hope this helps

Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key


Hello cdcrowley2, it seems that the "problem is the [Operating System] is not loading correctly." The CPU is trying to find or fix the 'loading' of the OS!

Follow these instructions
To get the Computer to "Boot into the OS and "Loading Windows."
  • Restart the Computer
  • Next, just before the [Page] that you mentioned, "Displays," {Press the F12} button.
  • This will open the "Boot Menu:" [Priority Boot Sequence] window.
  • There will be a "list" of (Devices), Optical Drive / CD, SATA / HardDisk Drive, or USB...
  • I do not know the "Configuration of your Operating System" or the Drive: that "holds the Boot [NTLDR] files.
  • It may also hold the "Master Boot Record" or Boot.ini file?
  • So, what you need to do is give the Drives a "Priority Boot Sequence," meaning , you will 'place' the Drives in the 'order' of Bootup [First] listings.
  • You will use the {Arrow buttons} to 'move the "Drives."
  • More than 'likely' it will be the (*Optical Drive / SATA or Hard Disk Drive}.
Try each, and hopefully the Computer will make it to "Windows," and you can "Login!"

If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9

Bootable files


When a computer is powered on, the BIOS ("basic input output system") has only a few commands available to it, and the main one is to search for a "boot device" - a storage device which contains "bootable files". The first device it finds with "boot records" is used to load the operating system.

Usually this is the C drive, but could also be a floppy, USB flash memory, or CD.

In order to get the boot records onto a device, a special option must be used when the device is formatted. This boots the boot records in a place where the BIOS knows to look for them.

So, a bootable file (or "bootable device") is a storage device which has been set up with these boot records.
