Question about Compaq Evo N410C Notebook
My laptop has no drives, so I have to use an external cd/dvd drive. I have recently reformatted laptop since it would only boot with BartPe when it felt like it. The bios is set to firstly boot from the CD-Rom and on each attempt I get the above msg. I thought it might be my drive so I tried a different one and the problem is still there. What can I do to resolve it in order to reinstall windows all over again.? Since I reformatted the FAT HDD the only button that I know to work is the F10 Bios Configuration. If anyone knows the answer it would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you

SET THE LAPTOP TO BOOT FROM USB or what ever connection you are using to conect the external drive to the laptop. setting it to boot from cd will look for an internal drive
to boot from the external drive you need to set it to boot from usb

Well if you have the BIOS set to boot from CD you should be able to put in any bootable CD (windows installer, Ubuntu livecd) and install a OS....But it sounds like you are getting this Non-system disk error everytime w/ more than one CD drive correct? If so, thats not good. You will have to boot up using a different device.. If your bios allows you can boot to a flash drive to get by the issue. Or a floppy drive, if you have access to one.
