If you are attempting to boot from a hard disk that was from another computer you will have problems because of architectural differences. You would need to place it into an identical pc build. You can install a new operating system then read the disk as an external or secondary drive, or do a new install from CD onto the same disk.

By startup fails to see IDE 0 and IDE 2 , says no channel 0 and channel 1. Is it possible that the cmos battery is empty?


Once your powered on the CMOS battery is no longer an issue. If it isn't reading the IDE or SATA channels it could be because they are not set in the BIOS. Check your BIOS setting and double check your cable connections. You also need to make sure, for IDE devices, that one of the drives is set to Master and the other to Slave otherwise they confuse the board and cancel each other out.

I got my motherboard changed in October and my computer won't boot up "disk boot failure 0" could I have the same problem again? I don't have a disk - dell dimension C521


The motherboard is not the problem.
Your hardisk is the problem.
See if your hardisk is detected during boot up procedure.
If it does... Run again your Windows XP CD installer and repair your operating system.
Having "Disk Boot Failure" error means the boot system of you operating system is corrupted.
If your hardisk is not detected... you better check if the power supply connector on your hardisk is secured and not loose..
If still not detected.. your hardisk crashed and need to be replace.

Operating system not found


When you power up the computer press F1 ore F2 or "del" key toenter in bios then check your hardisk is detected or not.
If not then if you have desktop open cpu cabinet then reconnect power cable and ide or sata cable to harddisk also check your harddisk is set to master.

Check on the jumper setting of the ide and power cable

check if the ide cable is connected properly on ur mother board/try reverse if u are not sure it doesnt ur hardware.

Start on power button the then click on on delete continuesly until the cmos setup will appear then check ur hardisk and ur boot secquence.

sometime not delete are using using in opening cmos sometime f2 or whatever assign.

Use fdisk/to check ur partition/after that reformat in these case u can easily conclude if ur hardisk is bad or not

Primary IDE master not detected


Hi darchie_1213,

Power off the system & unplug the power cord. Open your PC case. To remove any static build up from your body, touch the metal bottom of the case before touching any internal parts.
It sound like the primary IDE data cable is loose or the power cable to the drive is loose. Try disconnecting both & than re-connect them. If that does not stop the issue, replace the data cable for the primary IDE drive. Click on the link provided. The site will explain IDE connections & the differences between a 40-pin IDE data cable & an 80-pin data cable. (Pictures included & lots of helpful information).

Try the above first. If the problem continues the issue could be the hard disk drive.

I would go into the BIOS and make sure your SATA controller is using the AHCI or IDE setting and not RAID, if it is using RAID then it may need to load a special driver to install windows.

This is the most likely cause of your problem, can you also check and make sure the bios is seeing the HDD at all?
