Hi,
the boot device setup in the bios, if you set atapi-cd rom as first boot device. then hdd second. and fdd last.
it appears that you have a faulty connection from the IDE ( 40-80 wire cable ) that runs from the motherboard Primary/secondary slot. check the cable goes from motherboard to hard-drive and is connected firmly, also check the jumper blocks ( small white plastic block ) is set to master or slave on both devices ( cd-hard-drive ) if both on same cable set hard-drive to slave and CD rom to master. if they are both set as master or slave, they will conflict with each other.
if you need further help, please mail back.

I have the optiplex gx280 and installed a new wd 1 tb internal hard drive now I have the blue screen with "inaccessible_boot_device" 0x0000007b. How do I fix this?


Did you add this as a second hard drive? Or did you replace the original one with this one? If you installed this as a second hard drive, what has probably happened is that the BIOS is now looking at the new drive, thinking it is the boot drive. If you go into the bios, you will see two items under "bootup". One is boot device priority. This is where you select whether you want the CD, or the HDD, or the USB to be the first priority boot device. Then there is another for HDD boot priority. Look under that one and ensure that your original HDD is selected as the primary boot disk.

If your CD-Drive is IDE and you have IDE HDD you need to remove or set correctly jumper on the back of CD-Drive. I think by default it's setup to be Master, and HDD also Master, so you need to give somebody Slave priority neither HDD/CD

My dell desktop doesn't start or boot from cd rom


Basically you need to go to Bios to change your "Boot device pripority". Please follow these steps to do this.

Please follow these steps to install XP on your PC.

1. Please start your PC with power button. At the very first screen, at the left down corner, you will see the button to be pressed to go to Setup i.e. Bios of the PC. For most of the PCs , it is delete button. For some of them, it is F2 also. So, after starting the PC press Del to go into setup.

2. After you enter setup of the PC, please go to Advance bios setup.

3. There you select Boot device priority.

4. here the first boot device priority should be CD ROM, then the HDD. Please see the instructions given at right down corner and select this priority.

5. After you rightly selected boot device priority as given above, Press F10 to save the changes and then press F12 to exit.

6. Now the PC will restart again, but be sure that you put win XP cd in the drive before it restarts.

7. Now you will see a note that : press any key to boot from CD ROM, so please press any key.

8. The PC will boot from the CD ROM now , now you can follow the instructions given on the screen.

Reboot windows XP


This problem might occur because "USB 4" might be a bootable device. To prevent "USB 4" from booting, Enter your BIOS and go to the 'boot priority' section.
Set it in this order: 1. CD/DVD Drive 2. Removable Devices 3. HDD.
IF that does not work, place HDD as the second priority and Removable Devices as the third.

To enter your bios, Hit F2, F12, or Delete repeatedly. I am not sure which key it is for your motherboard, but hitting all those buttons should do the trick.

CD/DVD will not read PCV200g


Is the Drive reading any CD/Dvd during windows.

Please check the BIOS priority, if the HDD is set for first boot.

Let me know if you need further assistance. Also clarify the problem in detail.

HDD from dell optiplex g1


You can connect your HDD as primary or secondary, doesn't make any difference, anyway as you said I also suggest you to put it as primary. When you insert the Windows XP installation disk and you boot from your CD-Rom it will shows you all the disk and partition asking where do you want to install it.

(To boot from CD you have to enter in the BIOS and change the device priority at boot, let me know if you know how to do that)

At this point from the installation of XP you select your HDD, select to format as NTFS (Better then FAT32) and you start the installation.

At the end of the installation Windows XP will modify your MBR (Master Boot Record) to add a dual boot including Win95.

Be carefull that at  the end of the installation from XP you will be able to read files on the old HDD containing Win95 but not viceversa, because Win95 cannot read NTFS partitions.
