I assume this is a microsoft operating system
If the insallation did approch the point to alert a failure, a cold reboot repeats this same failure page,
the bios should show something even if it is AUTO for the HD.

If you can establish a boot and was able to format with no failure prior to the new OpSys and you cannot see it in your bios.
Backup and switch that bios HD menu to AUTO for that hard drive and repeat the format. Before you spend you dollars

The hard drive is failing or has failed. The error is because the data that Windows thought it had written to the disk wasn't there anymore. Regardless of whether it shows up in the BIOS or not you need to stop using this drive.

Remove the old drive from the computer an purchase a replacement. Install the new drive with your new OS. (Do not buy Maxtor, I recommend Seagate or Western Digital)

If you need data from the old drive, install it as a second drive and use your new drive OS to copy the data from it.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

I NEED TO INSTALL NEW OS ,BUT CAN'T CHANGE PRIORITY CD DRIVE ,THERE ARE PASSWORD PROTECT ,AND I TRY TO PRESS CTRL+ESC OR DEL+ F2 ALSO SHOW SHORTLY AND APPEAR BOOTMGR MISSING MESSAGE ,I HAV


BIOS passwords can be reset in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:

My acer aspire one d150 netbook webcam is missing . went to device manager and imaging display is missing . can anyone help with this problem?


Camera is not detected, there are several possibilities:

The first possibility
There was an error installing the driver. AOD150, manufactured by three types of cameras, chicony, liteon, suyin. Example: I installed the camera driver, suyin to AOD150. At the time of installation, a message appears, hardware not found / not detected / not recognize. This means, suyin not the right driver.

Solution

1. Open link driver AOD150
2. Operating System = Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition x32
3. Download software = Hardware Vendor Detection Utility
4. Double-click = HWVendorDetection.exe. We will find the right camera hardware.
5.
Download and install the Liteon driver

11_26_2011_6_54_05_pm.jpg

The second possibility
If the hardware vendor detection utility, does not detect camera

Solution 1
(assuming, normal hardware)
1. Possible corrupt operating system.
2. Reinstall the operating system, by doing format drive C.
3. Move all data from drive C to D/E/F.
4. Download drivers AOD150, and other applications, save it on drive D/E/F
5. Insert the Windows CD bootable. Perform boot from CD.
6. Press enter - F8 - New Installation - format the C drive, etc.
7. After the OS install is complete, install all drivers (chipset, LAN, VGA, sound, camera, etc)

Solution 2 (assuming, damage hardware)
Contact Acer Support

I hope this information useful, thank you.

These steps are similar to other Windows OS installations (Vista, Windows 7).
Below is the detailed procedure of installing Microsoft Windows XP:
  • Before installing Windows XP or any other operating system, you should backup all your data. Data can be backed up on a separate partition, if the hard disk is partitioned or you can back it up on external storage devices like CDs or on a network.
  • Restart the computer and go to the Setup menu by pressing F2 and change the first boot device to CD, press Esc and save settings.
  • Insert the CD labeled Microsoft Windows XP into the computer and restart the computer.
  • When the pc restarts, a message will appear telling you to press any key to boot from CD, press a key immediately the message appears and the setup process will begin.
  • After the files have been loaded, Windows will start and it will give you an option of repairing using Recovery Console by pressing “R” or continue with setup by pressing “ENTER”; press enter to continue with setup.
  • Setup will list all your disk partitions, highlight the partition where you want to install Windows, this is mainly partition “C”, press “D” to delete the partition, then press “L” to confirm.
  • Highlight the partition you deleted, and then press “C” to create a new partition, press “ENTER” to create the partition.
  • Press “ENTER” again to install Windows on the New (Raw) Partition you have created.
  • Format the partition using NTFS file system.
  • After format has completed, Windows will restart and setup will prompt you to boot from CD again. Ignore the message and let setup continue automatically.
  • Follow the next steps which will ask you to setup the system Time and Date, Network and enter a serial key, until setup finishes.
  • After setup has finished, Windows will restart and will welcome you for the first time; Microsoft Windows XP will have successfully been installed on your computer.

Hello Sir,
While windows is booting first go to BIOS settings by pressing "Del" or "Esc" then change the boot priority that is save the first boot priority as cd-rom and second boot priority as hard drive... so that you can boot you system with bootable cd...
And then while formating the system just delete the partion that is only "c:/" and install the windows in to that and don't even do anything to your "d:/" drive then you can get all your data back... Abd the cd should be bootable format...

You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.
