Since when r u getting this message
try doing a system restore if the problem started recently
if its a dell
the moment you power on the system press F8
you will get system's advanced options
use up and down arrow key
highlight safe mode
press enter
if will ask about your operating system
press enter again
when you get user name options click on administrator
you will get a pop up which says
to run windows in safe mode press yes and to run a system restore press no
it winn only happen if you are using win XP
press no and you will get system restore screen
choose a highlighted date the date in BOLD

    if its WIN vista

    you will be able to do a system restore in the same way

    you may not get a pop up for system restore but when you get to the desktop you can click on start and type system restore in the start search

    at the top you will get an option which says system restore

    rest everything is same.

Want to change compability to AHCI mode in lenovo z570 ideapad


This is a setting in you BIOS. Try changing to AUTO under the SATA drive settings by pressing F key during boot. It will be noted on screen during startup.

I would stay away from a OS upgrade till your are certain all hardware and software is compatible. It is a lot of work if it does not work properly.

Test media failure Operating system not found


Hello zyrenic, it seems that the "problem is the [Operating System] is not loading correctly." The CPU is trying to find or fix the Bootup into 'loading' the OS!

Follow these instructions
To get the Computer to "Boot into the OS and "Loading Windows."
  • Restart the Computer
  • Next, just before the [Page] that you mentioned, "Displays," {Press the F12} button.
  • This will open the [Priority Boot Sequence] window.
  • There will be a "list" of (Devices), Optical Drive / CD, Sata / HardDisk Drive, or USB...
  • I do not know the "Configuration of your Operating System" or the Drive: that "holds the Boot [NTLDR] files.
  • It may also hold the "Master Boot Record" or Boot.ini file?
  • So, what you need to do is give the Drives a "Priority Boot Sequence," meaning , you will 'place' the Drives in the 'order' of Bootup [First] listings.
  • You will use the {Arrow buttons} to 'move the "Drives."
  • More than 'likely' it will be the {HDD, or Optical Drive}.
Try each, and hopefully the Computer will make it to "Windows," and you can "Login!"

If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9

I was doing a clean install of vista biz., lost power, batt. did not last, laptop shut down befor final install. Now the laptop will boot, but alert tells me of error and I must restart...Its the same loop...


Hence you are always advised to do OS install with power lead connected.

It is attempting to boot from HDD not CD. Change boot priority and start install again.

They suggest you get Service pack Two to try clear up some other problems you have.

Sounds sensible to me unless you dont have a valid copy of Vista

The only way you can install XP on a Vista machine is to install "virtual XP" onto Vista using Virtual PC 2007.
