Try hitting f2 to enter setup.. this should take you into the BIOS to be able to change the boot sequence

If I change my existing 60g internal hard drive for say a 350g what spec etc do I need also will I need to change BIOS settings or jumpers. Can I just put it in and use the existing one as a temporary...


no changes in bios nor jumpers just need to format and install the operating system. and yes you can use the old one as either an internal if your tower /case is big enough to hold it or external .

Fatal issue: Error loading operating system


<p><b>Issue:</b><br /> <p>Error loading operating system<br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <p> <br /> <br /> <img src="matrix12_3.jpg" /> <br /> <br /> <p><b>Cause:</b><br /> <p>The MBR (Master Boot Record) either could not find a bootable partition or the bootable partition points to an unreadable on inaccessible part of the drive. This issue occurs prior to the start of any Windows code. <br /> <p>It can be caused by a power-failure while the disk is in the middle of writing, a virus damaged the entry, a failing disk drive or a serious software bug damaged the partition entry (although Windows typically protects against this). This issue cannot be easily caused by any action you performed, unless you turned off the power without going through Windows shutdown.<br /> <p>Although not stated in the message, press Ctrl-Alt-Del to reboot.<br /> <p><b>Workaround:</b><br /> <p><b>Change boot media:</b><br /> <p>If you are booting from either a DVD, CD, diskette or a USB drive, remove the media and boot from the hard disk. The media is either damaged or is not intended to be bootable.<br /> <p><b>Set the Correct BIOS Boot Choice:</b><br /> <p>The BIOS may be configured to boot from the wrong device. If you suspect this, the device boot order can be changed in the BIOS setup. Be aware there little consistency in BIOS setup operations, even with the same manufacturer on different models. As such, these instructions are bit less precise than we'd prefer.<br /> <p>1. Reboot and enter the BIOS setup. Often the BIOS displays the correct key to use briefly on screen or you may need to refer to the computer's user manual. Typically you hold down the Del, Esc, F1 or F2 key immediately after booting. <br /> <p>2. Look for a section on Boot or Booting. Often this appears on top menu. Select the Boot option, and if necessary the Boot order choice. The Boot order choices should list the order of boot devices. Typically the CD is the first boot device with the hard-disk typically second. The diskette may also occur before the hard disk, which is acceptable, although this will slow your hard disk boot by a few seconds. Avoid USB and network boots before the hard disk unless you know for sure you are using them (which is exceptionally rare). <br /> <p>3. Save and exit the BIOS. It will force a reboot. See if this change corrects the issue.<br /> <p><b>Check Hard Disk and Cables </b><br /> <p>If you had changed, added or removed hard drives, or changed or removed drive cabling, likely something is wrong. Recheck that the drives are properly installed and the cabling has not changed. Switching cables to different motherboard connectors or changing the master/slave drive jumpers (on old ATA drives) can cause this problem. In some systems, the cables were not plugged into the drive or motherboard securely and may have worked loose. Reseat all drive connectors.<br /> <p>It's also possible a hard drive is failing. Use a system diagnostic to validate the drive or swap to another hard disk.

Did you reinstall windows? If not, you need to put an operating system disk in the cd drive and boot from it and reinstall windows.

If you don't get an option to Press Any Key to Boot From CD message then turn the computer off and restart it and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key when you see the message otherwise it will not work and you will have to reboot. This is a temporary fix that will work that this boot cycle.

If you want to make a permanent change to the boot cycle or boot sequence you have to turn the computer off then turn it on and watch for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. You have to hit that key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to start over. Once inside the Bios or System Setup got the the Boot Tab so you can change the boot order or boot sequence. Normally you want it to boot from the CD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. With this setup just make sure when you boot the computer that you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or it will try to boot from it and give you an error message.

Carresearch, I just put the cd in and restarted the computer but the reinstallation didn't start. How do I reboot the cd first?


OK, Here's what you need to do. Shut down the computer. When you restart it, as it boots, continue to press and release the F2 key as the computer starts up. When it does, you will get a BIOS setup screen. From there, there will be an option to change boot sequence. Make CD drive first and then C: drive. Save your changes and then reboot. This time, the computer should load your reinstall disk. Let me know how it goes.

Why won't my computer boot to the A drive?


Because the BIOS is probably set to boot the hard drive first. The A drive, second or third depending on the boot order set in the BIOS.

this is a bios screen.

when your computer has no operating system to boot to, it hangs at the Bios screen.

either your hard drive is dead, your boot sector of your hard drive is corrupt or you need to reinstall your Operating System

they must have put it fully factory, you need to get your cd to start up before the hard drive does so you can use windows utility on to format and partition it , you may need to go into the setup (bios) and change the boot sequence to cd/dvd rom before the hard drive and run windows setup utility to install the OS on your new harddrive
