Non-System Disk or Disk Error results when the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) cannot find the boot sector or the master boot record is missing or damaged; i.e. the device does not have bootable media. The BIOS searches drives in the order usually specified in the CMOS Setup. This order is often, but not always, A: (floppy drive), C: (first partition on the hard disk)… The error will occur during startup if the CMOS is set so the BIOS seeks the floppy drive first and a non-bootable (or blank) floppy is in (was left in) the floppy drive. Other causes include:

No bootable partition on a hard disk drive

  • A defective hard disk drive
  • The CMOS drive settings (parameters) are not correct for the boot device
  • Defective floppy
  • Defective floppy drive
  • A virus

      RESOLUTION
      loadTOCNode(1, 'resolution');

      To resolve this issue, use one or more of the following methods, and then restart your computer:




      Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the floppy drive or the CD-ROM drive.


      Change your computer's boot sequence. To do this, you must change your computer's setup and the option that controls which device your computer uses to start from. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed.


      If you start your computer from a hard disk drive, install a bootable operating system (such as Windows XP) on the drive.

    Try removing the left side of your case (should only have 2-3 screws holding it on), locate your memory sticks and remove them. Put them back in snugly and make sure the clips at the top and bottom are closed onto the memory and then try booting again.

    Your startup got corrupted. If you have an emergency boot floppy, you should be able to get to DOS. This may not work unless Floppy is in your Boot order. If your lucky, you have a cd/dvd in the boot order. Try to put your original XP or Vista disks in and see if you can boot. You can then see files.
