We got the problem in our internal segate harddisk. when the system is on, shows the error message of Boot disk failure.


This sounds like a problem with the hard drive's MBR (Master Boot Record) If you have a windows xp disk, insert it and boot from it, make sure that your cd-rom device is set as the first in the list on your boot priority in your bios. Here are the steps for xp and vista

So how can you repair your damaged MBR? Here are the steps to follow:
1. First, restart your computer with the Windows XP setup disk in the CD drive. If you don’t have your original disk, borrow one or download a ISO image from a torrent site.
2. When prompted, boot from the CD drive by pressing any key. If Windows loads automatically, you will first have to enter the BIOS setup and change the order of the boot devices to start with the CD drive.

3. Once the setup loads, you will see the option to press R to repair a Windows installation.

4. Once the Recovery Console loads up, you will have to type in a number that corresponds to your Windows installation. This is normally just 1. Press Enter and then type in the Administrator password.

5. Now at the prompt, type in fixmbr. Your damaged MBR will now be replaced with a new master boot record and your computer should now be able to boot properly. Note that you may also want to run the fixboot command to repair the boot sector with a new one.
Also, make sure you only use these commands on a system with one operating system installed. If you have more than one operating system installed, fixmbr and fixboot could mess up everything.
Fix MBR in Vista In Vista, the procedure to fix the master boot record is a bit different. You have to start up Vista in the Recovery Environment and then run the bootrec command. Here’s how.
1. First, load up the Windows Vista disc in your drive and press any key to boot from the disc.
2. Choose the language, time, currency, etc and click Next. Now click on Repair Your Computer.

3. Choose the operating system to repair and click Next. When the System Recovery Options dialog comes up, choose the Command Prompt.

4. Now type bootrec.exe and press Enter. This will rebuild the boot configuration data and hopefully fix your problem. You can also run the command with switches to fix just the master boot record (/fixmbr), the boot sector (/fixboot), or rebuild the entire BCD (/rebuildbcd).
If you are still having trouble with loading Windows, post a comment and I’ll see if I can help! Enjoy

Pc error


By looking at your problem, Harddisk is not listed in the BIOS oot device priority.
I suggest you to go to bios and load optimal defaults and save it, try booting it should boot if your OS is not corrupted.
If your OS is corrupted then you must reinstall the OS by using your re-installation CD/DVD.

Sometimes you will also face this problem, if the hard-disk is not detected, Remove the hard-disk from laptop and reinsert it, then try booting.

This should fix your problem.

If you still persist the same problem then the hard-disk must be corrupted or must have got bad sectors.

Rate my solution.

My Dell Computer says it has to shut down, then reboots and comes up with "hard disk failure", I push F1 and it loads back up ok.


First open cpu cabinet and reconnect all connection to harddisk .
Also refix RAM memory.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios then check your harddisk is detected proeprly.
aslo go to boot option and set first boot device as your harddisk.
Some times because of bed SATA or IDE cable is detected in bios but it not boot up.
So change sata or IDE cable .

Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

It doesn't boot from hard disk


can you still go to CMOS SETUP?
how many beep and beep long of your pc while booting?
if you can still go to cmos setup try delete all partition using your windows setup then install a fresh copy of windows. if there are no partition found means theres a problem with your hardisk try put your hard disk to secondary if in primary or use different data cable might be the problem if the data cable is not the problem see the power supply of your hard disk is fine try swap the power suppply of your hard disk and cd-rom drive or extra power supply if power supply is not problem .
Buy a Brand New Harddisk might fix it your hard disk might have plenty of bad sector thats why doesn't boot anymore.
Hope i help you out ^)^

When switch on the system before loading OS press F2 to get the BIOS settings and select boot option in the menu and select your harddisk as the first bootable device. Restart the system now.
