Usually that is drive related not the motherboard. The drive may be slow to boot and the motherboard times out waiting for it. By the time you reboot the drive is running or spun up enough to get past this.

To confirm you can try the drive in a differant computer as a secondary and then run scans and any stress test software. You may find the drive is failing or about to.

Boot failure insert system disk, but it wont load


You need to check both in BIOS by pressing F key during boot. First check to see if HD is there. If OK, then change Optical drive to first boot, save and reboot.

IF MISSING HD -
Your hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and re-seat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

It doesn't appear to be a RAM or CPU problem. It could be the motherboard (maybe the SATA controller), or the hard drive. There are two thinkg you can try:

1 - connect the hard drive to another SATA port, and change the boot order in the BIOS to point to the new port. If it works then it's a problem of that specific port. (motherboard problem)

2 - connect the hard drive to another SATA port on another controller. If you have the hard drive connected to a red port, try a black port. If it's connected to a black port, try a red port. If it works then it's the controller. (motherboard problem)

3 - try to install the OS on another hard drive and connect just that hard drive. If it works, then it's an hard drive problem, and you can replace that.

Wont recognize ide drive on startup


When you boot,go into the bios. In the main section see if your drive is listed.
If not, turn off machine, open unit, check power and data cables
Harddrive are blue data cables. Also check to see if HD is slave or master. Jumper switches on HD. Clse unit and boot up into bios
in the main you should see you HD
in boot sequence.. see if you c:/ is in the list
bios will tell you how to put in list if not there
close and reboot

When i start it say Reboot and select proper boot device or intsert boot media in selected boot device


Most probably the cause is one of the following:

  • No OS installed.
  • Hard-drive connection is loose.
  • Windows is corrupt.
  • Harddrive jumper is not figured correctly (in case of IDE PATA) or it may have malfunctioned.
Disconnect the PC from the mains supply, remove the cover on the system and check for any loose cable connections of hard drive.
Check inside the BIOS whether the drive is listed and as the first boot device in Boot Order tab.

Note: During inspection take care to avoid touching any board component unnecessarily. Also avoid using force.

HP Pavilion zv6100 laptop CMOS will not recognize the HD


You could have a faulty disk controller. Try inserting a different working hard disk into the HP and see if it can detect it in the BIOS. If not then the disk controller is faulty and this is a motherboard problem. A replacement motherboard may not be worth it, put your money towards a new laptop and put the hard disk into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive.

160gb samsung sata II


The PC is not seeing the Hard drive. check the jumper pin for the setting on the hard drive. If you have one HD then it should be set to master or cable select. Reboot and the cmos will see the HD. If not check the cables, and last check to see if the controller driver is installed for the motherboard. The controller is where the cable connects.

Motherboard is not seeing the HD


generally its not a good idea to run both ide and sata drive at the same time.

if you are lucky in your bios it will have a emulate sata as pata/ide drives.

turn this on and be sure to select the ide drive with the OS on it as the master drive so it boots first.

also if you are doing this you will also need to change the jumpers on the sata drive as well to make it a slave and not a master otherwise you will have two master drives and it won't boot.

good luck

Hard drive stops booting


Hi, If your computer stops booting from the hard drive and is asking for a boot disk, then: 1. The motherboard/PC is no longer recognizing the hard disk; 1.1 Go to your CMOS/BIOS setup and manually detect the hard disk, save & exit. 2. The CMOS/BIOS is set to boot from other devices such as CD, FDD or USB but not from the HD. If after configuring the CMOS/BIOS and the hard disk is not recognized, then it is probably defective and therefore need to be replaced. If the hard disk is recognized but will not boot, then some files of your OS needed to boot are missing, corrupt or overwritten. You would need to re-install your OS and opt for a "repair". Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things stand or should you need additional information. good luck and kind regards.
