Creating a bootable flash drive


<p><b>Resolution:</b><br /> <p>The USB Flash Drive must be configured with an active primary MS-DOS partition. It must also contain the boot files. Follow the steps below to create a bootable USB Flash Drive. <br /> <p><b>Requirements:</b><br /> <ul> <li> Motherboard with BIOS that supports USB boot. <li> USB Flash Drive that may be erased. <li> Bootable floppy disk or CD with Fdisk and Format commands. </li></ul> <p><b>Directions:</b><br /> <ol> <li> Plug in the USB Flash Drive. <li> Make the USB drive the only bootable hard drive. <b>Method 1:</b><br />If available, change the BIOS settings for the hard drive sequence, making sure the USB device is at the top of the list above all other hard drives. Not all BIOS Setup Utilities have this option. <b> Method 2:</b><br /> Disable all hard drives in the BIOS. In some BIOS Setup Utilities you can disable the individual hard drives, while in others you will need to disable the controller. <b> Method 3:</b><br /> Unplug all hard drive cables inside the case. If the cables are unplugged the computer cannot detect and boot to the hard drive. <li> Insert the bootable floppy disk or CD into the appropriate drive. <li> Restart the computer to the bootable floppy disk or CD. <li> At the command prompt, type: FDisk. <li> Delete and create a new active primary DOS partition. <li> Use FDisk to delete all partitions from the USB Flash Drive. <ul> <li> In FDisk, press the 3 key to Delete partition or Logical DOS Drive. <li> If there is just one partition on the drive, choose 1 to delete the primary DOS partition. If there are several partitions, the extended and logical partitions must be deleted before the primary partition. <li> After choosing option 1, the screen appears with partition information and a prompt for the partition to delete. Choose which primary DOS partition to delete, and then press ENTER. <li> A prompt appears to enter the volume label of the hard drive. Enter the label exactly as it appears on the top of the screen in the partition information. If the volume label contains gibberish or lowercase letters, the partition will have to be deleted as a non-DOS partition. Try using the option to delete a non-DOS partition in FDISK. After entering the volume label, press ENTER. <li> You are prompted if it should delete the partition. Press Y for Yes, and then press ENTER. <li> The screen changes to show only the total disk space and a line near the bottom that prompts that the primary DOS partition has been deleted. Press the ESC key to return to the main menu. </li></ul> <li> Use FDisk to create a primary partition on the USB Flash Drive. The drive letter will be C:, since all other hard drives were disabled in step 2. <ul> <li> In FDisk, press 1 to Create DOS partition or Logical DOS drive. <li> Press 1 to Create a Primary DOS Partition. <li> The next screen prompts if the maximum hard disk size should be made into one partition. Press the Y key, and then press ENTER. <li> The next screen prompts that the computer will now reboot. Press ENTER to continue. </li></ul> <li> Exit FDisk and restart the computer. <li> Start the computer from the bootable floppy disk or CD with the USB Flash Drive still connected. <li> At the command prompt, run Format by typing the following command: Format c: /s. Press ENTER. <li> At the command prompt, run FDisk by typing following command: Fdisk /mbr. Press ENTER. <li> Restart the computer without the bootable floppy disk or CD, and attempt to boot to the USB Flash Drive. If it works, it should go to a C:\&gt; command prompt. <li> Change the settings made in step 2 back so that the computer operates normally again. </li></ol>

Blank screen after boot splash screen


Hi.

After you see the press Del and F12 message repeatedly tap the F8 key, see if that gets to the advanced boot menu, if it does select "Repair my Computer" from the list, and then follow the prompts. Have your Win 7 disk ready just in case you need it.

Let me know how you get on and good luck!!

When I press F8 key and it's not giving a option to restore my computer


No bootable device means the system cannot boot from where ever you are trying to boot. If you have something in the CD Drive other than a Repair Disc or Operating System Disc remove it.

Try booting from your hard drive. Turn off the computer then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Sequence or Boot Order. Hit that key when you see the message or you will have to start over. Select the Hard Drive as your boot device. If you get a message about an unbootable device then you will need to run the Check Disk Utility. If it boots, then you will need to make a permanent change to the Boot Sequence or Boot Order.

To make a permanent change turn the computer off, then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. When you see the message, hit the key otherwise you will have to reboot and start over. When the Bios or System Setup window opens tab over and Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence and save your changes.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Keep getting checkpoint errors, and have changed Sys Battery , reset Bios and when i boot it ,it goes to Dell logo and keeps trying to reboot. Windows will not load.


Try going to the BIOS and see if it reboots from there. If it does, then it is most probably a hardware problem. You can try re-seating the memory modules and If you have multiple modules, try them one at a time.
If it does not reboot while you are in the BIOS, then the problem lies on Windows. Get your DELL Restore CD or your Operating System CD and insert it to the CD-ROM drive. Reboot the computer and press F12 while seeing the Dell logo, that should give you the options to boot to CD-ROM. It will give you a quick prompt of "press any key to boot to cd..". Make sure you press the space bar during this time to initiate the boot from CD-ROM.
Once the Windows Setup loads, Choose "Recovery Console" to repair your computer. Just choose the installation you would like to repair (normally it's number 1) then it will ask you for the administrator password. By default, the password is blank, but if you set a password for admin then use that password.
Once you get to the prompt, Type this command. "CHKDSK /R" (without the quotes). It will initiate the repair for your OS. This might take an hour or so. Just wait for it to finish and it will automatically reboot your computer. Let the computer computer reboot normally. You should be able to get to your normal windows screen back.
Good Luck.

Help with error umountable boot volume


If you receive the “unmountable boot volume” error and have an installation disk, you still have a chance to save your system.
1. Insert your XP installation disk into an optical drive and boot up your computer.
2. When you see a welcome screen, hit the R key on your keyboard. This will enter you into recovery mode with a DOS prompt.
3. Now type chkdsk /p and hit Enter. This will launch a utility which will check for errors on your hard drive.
4. After the process is done, type fixboot and hit Enter to repair any damaged boot files which may have become corrupted. When asked to say yes or no, type the Y key on your keyboard.
5. Type exit and press the Enter key to reboot your computer.

Trying to restore dell 4400 and cannot get to a dell screen for f-12


If you boot from the XP CD and choose the first repair option it will load to a DOS prompt. From there type "chkdsk /r" and press enter. This will run checkdisk on your hard drive and repair any problems that it finds. It will take 45 minutes or more depending on the size of your drive. Once it finishes type exit to reboot and remove the CD. Your computer should boot normally.
