Try reseating the hard drive, and check system setup to see if Hard Drive is detected. If it isn't detected it may have failed, if it is, then boot to Windows CD and run CHKDSK /R from recovery console

Operating system not found


hi goodner,

getting the error "operating system not found" means that the hard drive where the Operating System is installed (i.e. Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7), Cannot be found by you BIOS upon the boot sequence.

When you turn the PC/Laptop, you normal see a screen that flashes flashes with screen that displays the ff:

Primary Master:
Primary Slave:
Secondary Master:
Secondary Slave:

The Primary master should have a value right next to it. If not, either the hard drive is faulty and needs replacement, cable is loose,

If you have a value to it and stil gets the same error the operating is corrupted and needs to be re-installed.

When I have turned on my Acer Aspire 6920 computer this morning it just goes to a screen that says the following Client MAC ADDR : 00 A0 D1 A8 32 D3 Check Cable COnnection PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM...


The first bit with the MAC address is there because it's trying to boot from LAN and it is exiting because no IP address is assigned to it by the DHCP. If your laptop is connected to a network, you can use this feature to image the laptop across the network with an imaging software like Norton Ghost.

The last bit, "Operating System Not found" means that you do not have Windows or any other operating system installed on your laptop. At this point, you can either reinstall your operating system or use the recovery disc that came with the laptop to restore it back to it's factory settings.

Hi. You may need to re-install the Operating System but your netbook doesn't have an Optical drive. Better call Dell Phone Support for help in how to recover system back to factory image.

Turns on but says system not found


Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back. If that doesn't work try running the factory restore if any... else you will have to reinstall your operating system from the Windows Install DVD.

The Problem is when i turn on the laptop system operation not found is written on the screen.


More than likely, your hard disc is gone, or a virus has corrupted your Operating System.

Try inserting your Recovery CD into your drive, and then boot from that disk for a restore. You'll probably lose your files.

Black screen says PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable, Operating System not found. I hear wierd sounds from the computer.


Sounds like it could be a bad hard drive. With your laptop turned off, take out the hard drive and put it back in and make sure its nice and snug.

Then go ahead and turn on the laptop and see if you can boot back up into windows.

If you can't get into windows and you get the same message then boot up the laptop and go into the BIOS by pressing F2. When you get into the BIOS look and see if your BIOS is recognizing the hard drive, if it's not seeing the hard drive then that means your hard drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

If your hard drive is showing up then that means you have corrupt system files and you'll need to restore your laptop back to factory defaults with your recovery cd's.
