If there is no hard drive found, there may be an issue with your hard drives firmware, you should check online for any updates then try again.

How to restore image by using bootable usb oc dvd


I prefer installing/upgrading the operating system on the ix104c2 with a USB flash drive and the program "WinToFlash" and set the "Hard drive priority" to whatever flash drive you are using as the first boot device in BIOS. I recommend using a USB key board to navigate BIOS and it is required to install the Operating system.

OPERATING SYSTEM NOT FOUND IS THE MESSAGE. HOW DO I ADD A SYSTEM?


This is usually indicative of your hard drive failing or the connection has come adrift.

The operating system, is usually windows, normally loaded on a pc when purchased. If you've purchased second hand, one of the usual practices is to remove the hard drive (and operating system) to protect personal data.

If there is a hard drive in place, you can buy a copy of windows, a friend may lend you a copy, but you will also need a code of authority (6 groups of 5 characters)to install it properly.

Alternatively you can get or download a "Linux" based operating system such as Ubuntu for free.

Forgot password, does not have cd rom drive, need to restore to factory settings. How???


Hi there,

How to obtain Vista Recovery Media and/or use the Vista Recovery Partition on your computer to put it back to Factory Settings.


There is no legal free Vista download available.

Contact your Computer Manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of Vista Recovery disk/s.


They normally do that for a small $ cost.


Also, ask them if you have a Recovery Partition on your Computer/Laptop to restore it to Factory settings.

See if a Manual came with the computer, or go to the Manufacturer's website, email or phone them for info on how to do a Recovery.


Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..


Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.


Also ask them if it is possible to make Recovery Disk/s from the Recovery Partition in case of Hard Drive failure or System Crash.

They will tell you how to do that.


Each Computer Manufacturer has their own way of making Recovery Disk/s.

Or borrow a proper Microsoft Vista DVD(not Dell, HP, etc).
A proper Vista DVD contains all Vista versions.
The Product Key determines which Vista version gets installed.

There are 2 Vista disks: one for 32bit Operating System, and one for 64bit Operating System.


If a clean install is required with a proper Vista DVD (not HP, Dell Recovery Disks):


Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.


At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu

Tried the same thing and got the same result using the motion computing DVD/CD external reader/burner.

Sir i had bought sony vaio laptop which showing text; boot mgr missing and press ctrl alt del to restart, pls give me a solution


http://cyberst0rm.blogspot.com/2007/04/how-to-fix-bootmgr-is-missing-in.html

I assume you are running vista because bootmgr.exe is used to run vista from startup. "bootmgr" is short for boot manager, and without this, your computer simply doesnt know how to start vista from your hard drive.

To fix it is quite simple. First of all go into your BIOS menu (usually press F2 or DEL when prompted when you turn on your pc). Make sure your cd/dvd drive is set to be your primary boot device. This way you can run your setup disk in the next step.

Insert your Vista install disk and restart your system. Press any key when prompted to begin running the dvd. Wait for it to give you a list of choices. This may take a while as it often stays a blank screen for some time. Choose "repair", and the setup will auto detect your operating system. It will also fix your bootmgr.exe at this point. If it does not, you can go on to the next screen and choose "startup repair".

I am trying to Downgrade an ASUS R1F from Vista Pro to XP Pro. How do I get the tablet to boot from the CD


Hi, if you have computer knowledge, the easiest thing to do is to take the laptop sata hard drive out and connect it to your computer with your sata cables and power and boot your computer up and the laptop drive will be a slave drive then. Now you can back it up if you want and then format it.

Now turn your computer off and put the hard drive back in your laptop. Because there in no Operating system the laptop will ask for a boot device. Now you will be able to boot from your xp cd.

I don't know why but I have found most laptops and computers with vista don't like to boot from a cd and over ride the boot options and go directly into vista which makes it hard for people who want to down grade to XP.

Why someone would want Vista beats me.

You can also load up into bios and change your boot options in there. If not already set as first boot device to be you cdrom/dvd you can change it to be. But like I said most of the time with Vista it doesn't matter! Vista will still boot first. But it is worth trying.

I need to install an operating system on a Samsung q1 ultra


Suggest you use an external DVD drive, and put your installation disk in it. Then access the BIOS Setup utility.

In BIOS Setup, find the Boot Order menu. (Generally, along the top headings of the main menu, in BIOS Setup, or located in Advanced BIOS Settings) Set the first boot device to be CDROM. Be sure to Save your change.
This way the handheld, will boot from the installation disk, in your external DVD drive.

Should you be trying to downgrade from Vista to XP, you have to change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM. If not, Vista won't let you overwrite it.
Vista is an upgrade over XP.

Do you have the system restore disks for your tablet? Once you have restored windows then you need to use the second disk to load all the drivers
