Possible there are errors in the program files and you can try to restore your system to an earlier date.Select control panel--back up /restore,find the last restore point to be selected.If this wont help you will need to re install.

If you have replaced the HDD check or replace the SATA or IDE cable if all else fails update BIOS software from the OEM support site.

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.

No diagnostic utility partition found to run diagnostics


Think about this for a min.

The Primary hard disk cannot be found by the System.
The Diagnostic Utility is ON the Primary hard disk.....OF COURSE IT WON'T FIND IT...

Since the motherboard is not able to even detect the drive as being present, there is nothing YOU can do to get it 'going' unless you replace the BAD hard drive with a new one.

[PS: I hope you've backed-up any important data....]

What causes the machine to display messages like primary hard disk drive 0 not found. primary hard disk drive 1 not found. strike the f1 key to continue, f2 to run the setup utility?


The system cannot find your hard drive. Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case, then remove the cables that are plugged into the hard drive and plug them back up. Reboot and see if it recognizes the drive.

If not, you can try the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. 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 whenthe options appear.

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

Primary hard disk drive 0 not found no bootable


Your hard disk is disconnected, or not configured correctly in the CMOS. Go to the BIOS and be sure that the computer recognizes the hard disk. If doesnt happens, check the connectors, and if it doesnt fix your problem, you need a new hard drive.
