Question about HP Axiom 60GB for HP Pavillion n5xxx and XHxxx series (AXH2060) Hard Drive

1 Answer

HP Pavillion 1020

When I turn on my computer I get the message "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key." I am not sure what that means because my system came with XP loaded - I have no disk. When I press a key the message repeats. I have two options F1 setup and to exit. When I get to the set up window I don't know what to do because I do not see the C drive. It tells me to select the order in which they should open - one is floppy - the cd rom - Is there something I can do to fix this?

Thank you in advance

Error message on screen: "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"


In the bios be sure the boot sequence starts with the hard drive, and that the hard drive is recognized by the bios, if both of these are true than you may need to re install windows.

you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart
note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE0 means Pri master
IDE1 means Pri slave
IDE2 means Sec master
IDE3 means Sec slave

or if you are using a USB
insert your usb drive:
click start right click on my computer select open you should see your USB drive
right click then select format
another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format:
hope this helps

Right click on "my Computer" and select "Manage" then in the box which appears select "Disk Management. See if you drive is listed in the lower pane of the disk management window. You may be prompted to initialise disk, this may solve your problem, or if the disk is showing then right click and select change drive letter or paths, in the next box select add or change then select a letter from the drop down list andclick ok. Your drive should now show in "My Computer"

Be certain that you are changing the correct drives letter as if you change your boot drive letter you will have lots of problems.

your computer is trying to boot from the new istalled drive instead of the drive containing the operating system,
you could try swapping the SATA cables on the mother board, or enter the BIOS by rebooting and at start up, holding the correct key (acording to the manual) then look for BOOT DEVICE some where in the BIOS menu, change the boot device to the correct hard drive (the one containing the operating system)

Have fun!

Hi, looks like you will need to format your hard drive and reinstall windows. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To install new version of XP. Insert XP CD into drive, reboot pc pressing F1 button.. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary boot device to CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this appears and wait for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive you wish to use for your operating system (usually the largest) and select partition this drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be aware this removes everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first) Re boot afterwards and reinstall operating system.
Hope this helps

Hard Disk and Booting issue


go into your BIOS and on the bottom of your screen there should be a (last good config) of (fail-safe config) value for one or=f the F1 to F12 buttons. also. are you running a 4gb hdd??? or is that a typo? anyhow, XP REQUIRES 2GB at all times free if your hdd is running at less that that (cause its full) your boot up could be messed around. finally make sure that the little plug on your hdd is across the Master or cable select pins not the slave as this can cause probs too. good luck.
