    i assume you have the original cd recovery set for the HP presario

    , you cant just install the OS from microsoft,, the drivers you need (CD RECOVERY set) has the OS along with the peripheral drivers, application drivers



    let me know if you need more help, but i need the S/N and model of the Presario

You need to get into the bios and change the default boot device to the CD drive.

THE COMOUTER READS NO OPERATING SYSTEM I INSTALL IT WITH NO OS THE COMPUTER READS THE DRIVE BUT I CAN NOT INSTALL AN OPERATING SYSTEM


  • You should have an operating system install disk (or USB drive.)
  • Restart the computer and press whatever key gets you into Startup (typically F2 or Del.) You *may* have an option that says "Boot menu" that has another key (such as F12.) If you have that, use it.
  • Find something in your BIOS that mentions "Boot order" or "Boot priority."
  • If you have a CD, make your CD the first boot device. If you're booting from USB, make it your first device.
  • Make sure your install media is in the computer, save and exit.
  • The computer should now boot from the install drive and put the operating system on the hard drive.

My laptop wont start up, It says "system disc or non system disc error, replace and press any key.." why? :(


you have it set to boot from cd so when you startup the computer it attempts to read the cd and than boot an operating system for you either remove the disk or enter your bios menu and set your boot order to negate the cd drive

How to instal in pc


Hi, you haven't said for what operating system, but for XP. First you will need to change your primary boot device to CD Rom, to do this boot into BIOS by pressing the F1 key during initial boot fase, save changes after boot device has been selected, insert windows CD into drive and reboot. Select boot from CD, which appears during initial boot fase. Allow files to be installed, once finished you will need to delete operating system and repartition hard drive, then format hard drive. Once this completes PC will reboot, ignor boot from CD and allow PC to boot normally and it will start to install XP.

I just replaced the hard drive On my Lenovo ThinkPad T60 and I am trying to reboot and install the OS & MS Office. I have a blue screen that reads cannot reboot from any device: Excluded from boot...


Is the hard drive seen in the system bios?Once you upgraded the hard drive did you re-install the operating system.Remember this,,, if the operating system on the drive belonged to another system you will encounter issues when the bios and the new hard drive starts to interact resulting .If you have data on this drive make a back up so you may restore it once the new operating system is installed.
Good luck

INstall the hard drive, if the hard drive came with a cd, put the cd in the drive and boot the laptop. When you see it say "boot from cd hit any key" do so and follow the prompts. This software will "initialize" the disc and install for the first time. Once the disc is "officially" installed take the hard drive disc out of the drive and replace it with Operating Disc. Reboot the machine and again look for the "Boot from CD Hit any Key" hit any key and let the system load windows. You only have to hit the key one time when it says "hit any key" even if during the windows install, the system may reboot but it still may need the disc in the drive, if you see the heading "boot from cd hit any key" dont hit any key any more....just let windows finish loading. When windows finally reboots, sometimes up to three times, then you can take the disc out of the drive or take it out if the operating system instructs you to. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

Hard drive not found


Wayneard is correct. When you install a brand new hard drive as the ONLY hard drive in the computer, there is no operating system loaded. The computer will try to boot from the hard drive and stop. Switch your boot order to have the CD boot first, and be sure you have the operating system installation CD in your CD drive.

Also, double check your hard drive connections. Be sure it is in the "master" position on the hard drive cable. If there is a connection problem, the system will complain after CD start that there is no hard drive available to install the operating system on!

Good luck.

Operating system


This will be either an operating system glitch of a failed hard drive. Start by doing a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If the hard drive will not format, or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

My hard drive on my acer 2010 died so I was thinking about replacing it. Do I need to do anything special to it before I load the operating system disk, etc.. Will it boot up and give me directions?


You just install the replacement hdd, the operating disk will prompt you to format and partition (if required) (windows xp & vista) once all loaded you wil probably have to load some drivers.
