The new HDD apparently has no OS. what is what the msg says.
boot to Bootable media with to install a NEW OS. or boot to your Recovery Media. and let it restore to Factory.
if this does not help - then provide more info.
HDD that has the Operating system will ask for password but if you have not enabled it then ideally there should be no problem with passwords till you activate it for new HDD ,if the case is ....like you have new HDD installed and old is replaced then PLZ dont get bothered about passwords as they are gone with old once!!
hello, sounds like bad hard drive. here is what you can try, go in to BIOS and reset it factory default save and exit, let the system start again go back in BIOS and check to see if you see your hard drive there, also this time disable Boot from Network option. seeif your system actually starts up... or you get "no operating system found", if you saw the HDD in BIOS and get no operating system found, you can try reinstalling windows.
if you still media test failure and it loops, you need a new hard drive.
just remove it ...and connect it to another pc ...and copy all your files ... see that the pc you use to have the same os ..and available port ...ide or sata ...depands of which kind your Hdd is ...it will see it right the way without any problems..the only issue is that it might see your operating system as well ...and prompt you to choose which one to start ...be sure you dont choose but the system from the pc you use...it wil specify the path ...hdd .... C? winouws ...the one ya have to choose isnt the one that bare your Hdd name ..
check your harddrive, is it detected in bios ?
if no, it could be motherboard or hdd, but most of the time is hdd problem, so just replace it.
if yes, your operating system is corrupt, so you can reload your operating system.
Unfortunately, you will need to purchase another operating system disc, even though you have the product key. That key is assigned to the disc that came with the machine. Why exactly did the Xp disc of your father's not work?
hy i have your solution.its simple. the problem is remote network data entry that start in the bios systems, produce by a virus call downloader.trojan or bootable Tj.exe, normally the bios has to read it and it gives the error " media test faliurecheck cables",ir you dont repaired quickly your laptop or desktop eventually will not boot the windows att all, this have to be kill before that happens, First of all clean your pc with Trojan Remover and then do just a simple task restart your desktop or laptop and do not let it initiate windows just press F2 at the bios and go to the Bios program and then go to the tab name Bios and press F9 that means "default bios systems" and everything will change in your bios and when your desktop or pc restart it will never show that message again and your bios will initiate with no problems and the virus that put that into your pc will no longer control your bios system.
Please try changing the HDD. If same thing happens the problem may be with ur O/s Cd or the Mother board
Please let me know this is used machine or New one. If new one please take a different O/S cd and install it.
If you are installing XP and your HDD is SATA then you need sata drivers.
