The primary can be an external drive, but you must modify the boot order in the BIOS to do it. I would highly suggest not doing this though, because you will take a huge performance hit and have to deal with obvious aesthecial problems. Some operating systems will also not allow you to do so.

My acre aspire 5517 keeps getting a disk read error occurred and I keeps repeating it over and over what do I do?


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Toshiba satellite l750-16l "a disk read error occurred"will a new hard drive fix


You 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 reseat (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.

"A disk read error occurred. Please click ctr +


You have as it states, a disc read error which means you have errors on the hard drive.
As soon as you get into your system run CHKDSK/F, that will attempt to restore the damaged files.
Make backups and look for a replacement hard drive.
Hope that helps.

The recovery disk is defective so the install is bad. Install using another disk (even a generic retail one of the same type will do) and your key.

Toshiba tecra m2v s330


Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.

Blue Screen and error message at boot up


You can find the recovery sequence for your machine at Dell's support site. Bellow is a link to Dell support. Keep in mind that a blue screen indicates an operating system error, and may be caused by a hard drive failure. If this error is due to a hard drive failure the built in automated system recovery will not work, because it's stored on the hard drive.
