  • Dave May 11, 2010

    This appears to be a warning generated by the PC BIOS. Are you able to continue booting to XP?

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.

Primary slave drive fails


Go into the BIOS and make sure you are trying to boot from the Primary Master Drive first. If not, move the Master Drive to the 1st boot position.

If the above fails, you could just remove the power cord, remove the case and notice how the two drives are connected and remember it. There will be one cable that provides power to the drive from the power supply on each drive. Also, there might be one cable that connects both drive, or there might be one in each drive, etc. I would disconnect the power and cable on one of the drives and try rebooting. If it fails and you have one cable that connects both drives, try the other cable connection and reboot. If it still fails, then I would try doing the same thing with the other drive.

If all the above fails and your system has the IDE (whereas the cable has about a 2 inch end with about 20 holes that plug into the 20 pins on the hard drive) interface, remove the drive to check and see if the little pin on there along is set to Primary, Master or Cable Select. Normally on a two drive system they will be set to CS for Cable Select and the IDE Cable based on how it is plugged into the drives determines which is Master and Slave, but older systems might have the Master and Slave setup.

Im getting this message primary slave hard disk error the model is WD3200AAjs


Most (older) motherboards have two "channels" for devices (CD, disk-drives, ZIP drives, LS-120 drives).

Each channel supports two devices: one "master" device and one "slave" device.

Check the "primary" channel, not the "secondary" channel.

Check the "slave" device, not the "master" device, on the "primary" channel.

The device either has failed, or is announcing that it soon will fail.

When i installed hard drive and set the jumper on primary master it dint show up and in bios the txt is showing like that primary master drive 0 (not installed)


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test or replace all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard)) drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
you could run the check disk utility

click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)

there are few thing you ahve to keep in mind

there are two type of hard disk
1. IDE
2. SATA

As per your hdd capacity it should of IDE type.

Now there are two IDE slots on motherboard. One is Primary and other is Secondary

You can fix two hdd with one IDE Slot that mean you can fix up upto faour IDE hdd at a time

Now again there are Primary master and Primary Slave

and

Secondary Master and Secondary Slave

Now You have to examine what was the location of previous hdd
1 Primary Master
2 Primary Slave
3 Secondary Master
4 Secondary Slave.

Now you have to make a HDD master or Slave.

just in between data cable connector and power cable connector there is a jumper. that specify the master or slave. do reply me if it works well thanks

How to detect the hardrive?


Hi,

setup the first drive as slave ( sometimes No Jumper ) then the furthest away drive as Master.
If this fails, and you have 2 IDE Slots on the motherboard. ( Primary/Secondary ) Put 1 drive on primary as Slave. And DVD Rom As Master ( same Cable ) Then put second drive On Secondary IDE Slot. ( Set As Master Or Slave )
If none of these solutions Work For you, check to see if Both Channels are activated in the Bios.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.

Mike @ compurepair.
