Bootmrg missing


Um, start over with the Windows disk, and reinstall from scratch. If the drive has been formatted, then there's nothing left there to recover.

Cant flash bios a1410n


Try simple first. When booting, AND BEFORE the XP logo, press f8 repeatedly until you see the boot options menu. If you miss it, you will see the xp loading logo, if so, restart and try again. From the boot menu, try the "boot with last known good configuration" option. If that doesn't fix it, re-boot, f8, and try the "safe mode" option. If it boots with any of these methods, do a full shut down and re-start again normally.
If that doesn't get it to boot normally, I would do the following. (I would, but you should only try this if you have a good understanding of windows and needed programs installing, ram replacement, hard drive repair/replacement and internal computer wiring)
Now, if your computer worked fine, then suddenly started this loop, I dont think it a bios problem. I expect you might have a hardware problem. Did you change any hardware very recently? Sometimes that stops windows from loading. Or, you could try changing the ram and retry, could be bad ram. But I think it is a hard drive issue. I think you will have to reload windows and/or replace the hard drive.
To safeguard your info, you should replace the main hard drive with another drive, load windows fully on it, then add the original drive back in as a slave/secondary drive, and retreive your personal info and files from it. Your needed programs will have to be re-installed on the newer windows drive. When you get all your files copied over (use copy and paste, not cut and paste), you can format the old drive and use it as storage, or just format and keep for the next time, or sell it. I would also run a "drive fitness program" to test it for bad sectors.
Or, if you dont need anything from your windows, you could format and install from the xp install cd. If it loads and runs, the drive is probably ok (I would still test it for bad sectors), or, if it cant load because of errors, the drive is probably bad. Retry with a new drive.

I have an acer 5315-2326 and I reformated the hard drive and tried to load windows 7 pro. It cant find the hard drive. I can load ubuntu but when I try to load windows 7 it says no hard drive found.How do...


I have seen hard drives where people had screwed around the partitions so bad that their computer would recognize it. I would recommend since Ubuntu can see it. Boot into a Ubuntu Live CD and delete any partition info so that it's a completely empty disc. Then try to use the Windows 7 DVD to install Windows. Comment back with your results.

Sata drive is not recognized by os during new install


When installing XP or Vista you get the option to load third party drivers for unknown devices. I think it's F6 just after the start of any version of Windows, once you press this you will have to supply the drivers for the Windows installation. This will make Windows recognise the hdd from then on.

Having trouble with HP ..Windows XP


I suggest that :
  1. Press F8, choose command line (if you know) and backup any file that you need (copy to an external drive, pen drive, cd or other medium). Please skip this step if you allready have updated backups.
  2. you restore the windows XP with the original cd / dvd, and choose format disk.
  3. remove the cd / dvd when asked for reboot
  4. Restore your data files and update the operation system with Microsoft update.
Hope that helps. Please inform what hp model you have for further help.

Cheers,

Pedro
