When i turn on my computer it says no bootable devices help


That means that there is no accessible drive (usually an internal hard disk drive or CD/DVD-Rom drive) on which the computer's start-up system (known as "BIOS") can find an operating system (OS) such as Windows. Without a working OS, the computer can power up, but nothing more.

In a practical sense, this almost certainly means one (with both of the last two being a remote possibility) of three things:
1) The computer lacks a hard disk drive (HDD) entirely;
2) The HDD on which the computer's OS was installed has a critical problem- perhaps involving its physical connection to the rest of the computer, but more likely a failure of the HDD itself, &/OR
2) The OS has suffered a catastrophic issue so severe that BIOS can no longer even register its existence.

In either case, if this was a previously-functional computer that you used, you should prepare yourself for the likelihood that everything on it is now gone. You'll have to have someone knowledgeable do some hands-on work (e.g., trying a different HDD with installed OS known to work in place of the current one) to find out what's going on.

You didn't provide any background or contextual information about your situation, so unfortunately that's all assistance that can reasonably be provided in this forum.

I have an Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook. It dosen't have an internal CD/DVD-Rom Drive. I would like to re-install the OS using and external USB cd/dvd Drive. Can this be done, and if so how do I go about...


You can install the operating system using an external CD/DVD drive. for dell systems, make sure you have the external drive connected then when you turn on the computer press F12 to access the one time boot menu. on the boot menu choose the option for CD/DVD drive. after pressing enter it will prompt you to press any key. once you get to the welcome page just follow the onscreen instructions to install a fresh copy of windows

How to reformat my MSI notebook?


You need to have an valid Operating System installer CD/DVD. This could be a Windows or Linux installer or whatever Operating System that you prefer.

  1. Turn your laptop on.
  2. Open the CD drive and load the CD Installer.
  3. Reset your laptop to manually reboot it. If you loaded the CD fast, this step is no longer required.
  4. The setup program will then load. Follow the onscreen procedure.
  5. At the point of selecting the hard disk drive, choose "Delete Partitions" to completely remove all data.
  6. After deleting partitions, create new partitions for your hard disk. You can choose to divide your hard disk capacity into 2 or more partitions depending on your requirements.
  7. Format the root partition now (Drive C) to continue the installation.

it would be easier to use an external dvd/cd drive if in case your internal dvd drive is defective. thereon, you can start re-installing the XP OS using the external dvd/cd drive. hope this will help your problem. thanks

External Floppy disk drive or External CD/DVD drive. Might be easier to just replace the internal drive.

Install os,cd drive not working


You can hook two computers together using a crossover cable. They may have them at radio shack, if not you can find one on the web for cheap. Then you can put the install in one cd and have it install in the other computer.
