Cannot boot from usb. dell serverPoweredge 2650


Try entering the BIOS (usually by hitting F2 or Delete during the boot up sequence) and looking under the boot menu for the USB drive. Some older systems cannot boot from USB. You might have improperly formatted the USB drive. What are you trying to boot into?

What the computer is telling you is that the device it accessed does not have a Operating system. If you have your boot sequence set in your BIOS to access a Floppy disk first, a CD drive second a USB drive third and then your HD last, or any sequence above, then for instance if you left a floppy disk in your machine and the computer was given instructions to check the boot of that first, then it did not find a system. Same goes for CD if you left a CD in your system.

First make sure that you did not leave any items in the drives, and try again. If that does not do it, go into your BIOS, F2, upon boot up and set your boot sequence. If you put your hard drive first and the machine still does not boot up then you have a corrupted boot sector on your drive and must do other things up to re-installing your system.

Windows 98 on dell inspirion d600 install problem


Installing Windows 98, is you need a start-up disk (floppy disk) first before you can use the Windows 98 cd. The start-up disk will perform the partitioning and formatting of the HD...doing this, you have to boot from floppy drive first---after partitioning and formatting, you have change again the boot sequence to boot from cd then you can start the installation of Windows 98.

Go back to setup and check your boot sequence. It may not be looking for your hard disk. Do you know what Hard disk you have? It may not be wired in there properly if it's in the boot sequence. Set DVD/CD to 1st boot device and put in your installation disk. Do you boot now? Do you have data on your hard disk you need? If not, Re-format the drive.

Restarting while formatting


Hi, try to check your pc's cmos setup on boot sequence, you would be needing to set the sequence to boot the system on CD drive first then your hardrive; then disable boot virus protection - this will make your OS installation with no interruption. Then save your cmos changes. you have to put your operating system program installer on your cd drive then watch the message to boot from your cd drive. hope this helps.
