Booting up new motherboard

When I start my computer up after installation of new motherboard and hard drive, I get the following message after the computer goes through the start up check. Reboot and select proper boot device, or insert Boot media in selected boot device and ;press a key. Trouble is everything seems to be properly selected and when I enter setup it all appears to be set as the manual displays. Boot media did not come with the new motherboard I had purchased and installed. I am lost for solutions. Help!

    The boot is set as was suggested, but I still come up with the message of 'Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key'.

  • johnniefunki Jul 05, 2008

    All of my connections are as perscribed. All jumpers are installed and both CD/WR drives are installed. Everything checks during start up except I keep getting the same messege. 'Reboot and select prper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key'. All setups are as the directions in the manual for the new P5E-VM HDMI motherboard and Intel core tm2duo processor and MAXtor hard drive. Nothing has worked from the suggestions so far.

Try disconnecting all the other drives except the hard drive. Make sure the hard drive is on the primary IDE or the first SATA channel. You should then at least get operating system not found unless the hard drive already contains an operating system. Once you get there, then connect one optical drive up. From there you can install your operating system.

You need to install an Operating System on the hard drive in order for it to boot. If you haven't yet set your first boot device to CD and reboot with your OS installation CD in the CD drive.

The computer will attempt to boot (load an operating system) from any disk drive specified in the Bios, in the order these devices are listed in the Bios. This error occurs because a drive that does not have a bootable operating system (the external drive) has been placed before the hard drive in the search order. If the drive is not switched on, the computer does not see it and therefore does not try to boot from it. You have to make sure that the computer knows to use your internal hard drive with your OS to boot.
Do You have an external drive connected to your computer? Or some other device like a flash drive attached to the computer?
When you start the computer and the external drive is switched on, an error message is displayed: "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key."
If you have an external drive, switched it off whenever you start or restart the computer.

Change the order of the boot devices.
Enter Bios Setup (this is done by pressing a key as requested during start-up)
Select the Boot menu (or similar)
Select Boot Device Priority (or similar)
Change the device order so that the external drive is listed after the hard drive, or remove it from the list of bootable devices altogether. The main hard drive should be the 1st boot if you have more than one.

    If your boot order is

    1st. floppy - it will try to boot from this 1st

    2nd - cd rom- it will try this next

    3rd HD - IT WILL LOOK FOR THE BOOT FILE HERE.



    ALSO MAKE SURE NOTHING IS IN THE FLOPPY OR THE CD/ROM



    If you don't have an external or flash drive connected just

    Change the order of the boot devices.
    Enter Bios Setup (this is done by pressing a key as requested during start-up)
    Select the Boot menu (or similar)
    Select Boot Device Priority (or similar)

    If you are still stuck here, your board may support the F8 Boot Select source option. Bootup and instead of pressing Del, Press the F8 key by tappnig on it until you are given a choice of boot source options. Choose Hard Disk 0. This assumes you have your hard drive(s) mounted on the cable correctly and pinned for CHS or Cable Select.


    You can also bootup with your WindowsXP disc in the CD/DVD bay and choose to startup with repair console. From the command prompt, type Help. You will see commands to fix several things such as MBR and BootSector.

    But, to be honest, if this is the first motherboard you've installed, the chances are quite high you have done something wrong.

Are you trying to install this OS (Operating System) , or is it already installed on a hard drive?
If you are installing it, make sure you change the boot order to the optical drive (DVD drive). If it's already installed, was it installed with an OEM disk? If yes, then you might need a new Windows XP disc. This is because, when using an OEM disc, if you change the hard drive or motherboard, it doesn't really work.

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

Test 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
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Start up error message issue: floppy disk fail


if im correct, you havent installed a floppy drive yet...
while the comp is booting press esc (on some comps its F10 it should say on the screen) and access the boot sequence..in there there is a list of boot items...they always list floppy drive as the first boot drive in case you need to recover your comp...remove floppy drive from your boot list making sure that your hardrive (C) is first drive to boot.
After you get your comp set up, you may want to change that sequence in case you ever have problems with your HDD

Problem of Window XP installation


usually when installation of windows fails is from more than one reason and lets hope that ur hard drive is not damaged (contains bad sectors).
try these steps :
1- use a different windows cd and a different cd rom if u can find one.
2- change the sequense of drives by changing their jumper positions and data cables ( master, slave)
3- try to clear cmos with the jumper located usually near the mainboards battery (short it for 3 seconds)
4- try ( low-level format) to ur hard drive and reinstall windows.

if the message is still seen then your hard drive could be seriously damaged.

Window currupt


1- the problem is a software problem your board and processor are ok.

2- the message you saw indicates curruption in the windows files its strongly recomended that you install a new copy of windows even if the erors could be recovered..
reformating your hard disk is necessary to reinstall a new coppy of windows.

CMOS SETTING and BOOTING


I just had the CMOS checksum error while starting the computer, So pressed F1 and continued.. I just don't think it's the battery, because the computer is 2-3 months old, and all parts were new. I also have another problem. which is that it tells me at start upo the the IDE 80 connector cable isn't installed, or something like that, which prevents one of my hard drives to be found by windows....
