Boot mgr missing message


I could have told you you were loading Windows 7 by the symptoms. Try running a Malware program with a register edit-register function in it. If you are switching from XP Pro. you will need to clear your register and all command and drive to . Set BIOS to boot from DVD/CD first then set the hard drive to boot second. Windows. Also if you have access to another computer ask microsoft for tech support.

How to install window xp


Hi, you will need to set up your hard drive first. During initial boot fase press the F8 key which will take you to the BIOS. Select boot device and change primary boot device to CD Rom. Insert XP Cd into drive, select save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD when this appears by pressing any key. Allow files to install, when this completes you will need to delete any previous operating system, partition hard drive and then format hard drive. Once this sompletes reboot, ignoring boot from CD this time and XP will start to install.

Can i change the operating system from windows vista basic to windows xp?


I would advise you not to do so. Most manufactureres did not release proper drivers for windows XP, as MS didn't encourage them to do so.

I can advise you to install windows 7 instead. I've installed it on all of my computers and I'm more than pleased. You can even run different programs as if the windows was XP... (and no, I don't work for Microsoft...)

Trying to install Windows XP SP1 onto HD with this Motherboard. System will not boot from HD to start install.


Make sure your IDE hard disk drive is connected to IDE1 port and that the data cable is fully connected. Also check the jumper on the IDE drive. If you are using only one IDE hard disk drive set the jumper on the drive as a Master without a slave. If you are running two IDE hard disk drives set the primary drive's jumper as a Master with a slave. Set your second IDE disk drive's jumper as a slave. The master drive should be connected at the end of the data cable and the slave drive should be connected to the next data connector. Than check your bios settings. Power on the system and press the Delete key every 2 seconds until the bios menu loads. See page 3-1 in your manual. If you need the manual for the NF8-V MB click on the link provided below and download it;
http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=NF8-V&fMTYPE=Socket+754
You'll also need the program Adobe reader to view the manual. Adobe reader is a free download; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Once you’re in the bios go to page 3-4, Standard CMOS Features.
Follow the instruction listed for IDE HDD Auto-Detection. Your HDD should be listed here. Than see page 3-7 in the manual. Open Advanced BIOS Features. A normal boot menu for the Abit would read;
First boot device Floppy disk drive (If one is connected). 2nd boot device should be (CD-ROM/DVD-ROM). Third boot device should list your primary hard disk drive's (Model number). Load your windows CD into your CD-ROM drive.
Once the settings above are set, press the F10 key to save your changes and exit the bios. Your system will auto restart. Windows should begin to load.

Cheers!

I hav ejust purchased a new lg gh22 dvd writer. It is working fine in operating system like windows xp and ubuntu. The bios also recognizes the drive. But when i insert a bootable cd/dvd of ubuntu windows...


hi,

Is the hard disk drive is in secondary slave? If yes, change it to master and your dvd is into slave. Refer to the jumper settings at the back on the drive. If not work, your bootable disk may defective. Try other a botable disk.

Best regards,

Weird problem. CPU recognizes the sata, windows will not boot, recycles to start-up over and over. Tried with xp disc to repair, came back as "no hard drive listed. If I changer driver from master to slave...


It is possible that Bios/Cmos battery is not maintaining its charge. You might want to pull the cmos battery & check its voltage with a volt meter. It should retain 3volt DC. If it reads lower than 3v replace the battery. Once replaced you will need to reset all bios settings. If the battery checks out ok than continue.
The soulation to your problem lies within the Bios not your hard disk drive. Set the jumper you moved to slave back to master. Re-connect the SATA data & power connector to the motherboard. Boot up your PC & start pressing the Delete key on your keyboard every two seconds untill the Bios menu opends. (See page 2-14 section 2.3) in your manual.
You can not use your mouse while in the bios. Read page 2-12, section 2.2.1). This will explain how to move about while in the bios. Once the Bios opends you will be at the main menu. If your SATA drive is correctly connected you will see its model number listed there.
If you have two SATA drives connected you should see both. Take note of which is the master SATA1 drive. All SATA drives run as master drives. While in the Bios, SATA drives are shown from top to bottom. First /top drive will be the master drive. Next drive down is considered as slave.
Than open (OnChip SATA controller). Set this to [Native Mode] or to [SATA]. See page 2-16, section 2.3.5
Than open Boot. See page 2-30, section 2.6, Open Boot Device Priority section 2.6.1 Here is where you need to set the boot order.
(The boot order is not set correctly & this is why windows does not see your hard disk drive & showed the message "No hard drive listed").
If you have a floppy disk drive connected to the system set it as,
[1st Boot device]
Change 2nd Boot Device to [CD-ROM]
If you have two CD/DVD-ROM drives in your system make sure you set the Master CD/DVD-ROM here & not the slave CD/DVD-ROM drive.
3rd Boot Device should be the primary [SATA1 drive], connected to SATA1 port on the motherboard. See page 2-30 section 2.6.2
The drive with windows installed shoud be listed as 1st.
Save your changes & exit the bios. Your system will auto re-start.
If you had a working operating system on the drive it should load.

If you need the motherboard manual or drivers you can download them from Asus web site link below;

My d drive CD-DVD ROM,has gone problem again with 3 others


First of all, here is a link to download the ASUS A7M266-D manual in PDF format:)

http://www.unitycorp.co.jp/support/download/manual/a/a7m266_d_e.pdf

The CD/DVD must appear in the BIOS before it will be seen and used by Windows. There are two reasons it (they) might not be seen. There is a jumper pin block on the back of each CD/DVD to designate Master, Slave or Cable Select. you must move the little plastic jumper clip to the correct position. If you are using a 40pin IDE cable, the top drive should be Master and the bottom drive should be Slave. If you are using the newer, smoother 80pin cable then both should be set to Cable Select. Having the jumper in the wrong position will prevent the IDE controller from sensing one or both of the drives as the signal will get confused in the cable.

Next you have to change a BIOS setting to inform the system that you now have a new device on that channel (unused channels are usually defaulted into the NONE or AUTO position so you do not get a device missing error message on startup). This is where the manual comes in. The specific instructions for the Award BIOS in you system are found on page 48 of the manual.

If you are just replacing the original CD/DVD, it should be in the Secondary Master channel. If you are adding a second drive then your new CD/DVD will be in the Secondary Slave channel, which you should change from NONE to AUTO. You will have to reboot for the change to take effect. Go straight back into the BIOS to verify that the added drive is recognized (the BIOS should list the drive type and information). Once you can see it on the BIOS screen, Windows will recognize and automatically configure it.

Now, as for your Windows saying the drivers are corrupt, that is a different problem which usually happens after removing software to burn CDs/DVDs. It is not an uncommon problem. I believe a link that describes your problem and solution is here:)

http://www.pchell.com/hardware/cd_drive_error_code_39.shtml

Finally, you mention XP Professional like you are going to reinstall your hard drive. It may not be necessary unless you are doing it "just because". If you have/had XP Home on the hard drive, you will have to do a full installation for Professional, you will lose all data and programs, AND you will need to locate the correct drivers for your system to get all the pieces to work. You will also need an XP Professional COA to activate the new operating system, as you cannot activate Professional with a Home edition key.

For most users, there is no advantage in using Professional over Home edition (there are some new features used for networking, remote desktop, etc. that single machine home users just do not have reason to use). If you are installing Pro just to fix your DVD problem, it is probably unnecessary.

Please comment with your results.
