Need help figuring this out. Complex!


Configuring your computer to boot from a USB drive allows you to boot into a separate operating system stored on a bootable USB drive.
This is handy when needing to troubleshoot a computer or access the hard drive without booting into the main operating system.
In order to boot from a USB drive, your computer's motherboard and BIOS must support USB booting.
If they do, then a simple tweak to the BIOS settings is all you need to do.

Shut down your computer and allow it to completely power off.
Insert your USB drive into an open USB port on your computer.
For ease of access, try to insert it into a front port if you have one.
Turn on your computer and enter the BIOS menu.
When your computer first boots, the manufacturer's logo will appear on the screen.
On the bottom of the screen is a note telling you which button to press to enter the BIOS.
Quickly press the button to enter the BIOS menu.
All manufacturers are slightly different, but some common buttons for entering the BIOS are F2, F10, F12, ESC and DEL.
If you are unsure, refer to the owner's manual that accompanied your computer.
Use the arrow keys to scroll down to the boot device menu.
It will be titled differently on different computers, but look for something like "Boot Order" or "Boot Devices."
Press the enter key to enter the boot menu.
Scroll down to "USB Drive" and set it as the first boot device.
Exit out of the BIOS menu and reboot your computer.
When your computer boots up it will boot from the USB drive first.

NTLDR compressed on a Compaq Presario SR105CL cant enter bios to set to boot


Step 1:
Which operating system ?

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source. Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS. Corrupt NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM file. Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT.32 New hard disk drive being added. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record. Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable. Failing to enable USB keyboard support in the BIOS. Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD ROM First verify that no Floppy Diskette or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette. b> Note: This error has also been known to occur when a memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it. If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras, ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer. If you are attempting to BOOT from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files or is corrupt. If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive. Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt. Press any key to boot from the CD

Install windows 95 from floppy


Microsoft Windows 95 employs the use of a bootable floppy disk to begin the installation of the Windows 95 operating system or to troubleshoot problems with the system. Microsoft Windows 95 uses the MS-DOS system to boot the computer first and then loads the Windows 95 operating system onto the machine. Windows 95 Boot Disks may be created in one of two ways: The Startup disk may be created from within Windows or a boot disk may be created from a free downloaded boot disk image. After the boot disk is created the disk may be used to boot the computer and install or troubleshoot Windows 95.

Click "Start" and then click "Settings" in Windows 95. Click the "Control Panel" option. Click "Add and Remove Programs." Click "Startup Disk" and then click "Create." Insert the blank floppy disk into the disk drive. Click "OK." The operating system will create the Windows 95 boot disk. Click "OK" when the disk is finished. Create the Windows 95 Boot Disk using Downloaded Boot Disk Image Open a Web browser and navigate to the boot disk image site (See "Below"). http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm Download the Windows 95 boot disk image and save the .EXE file to the desktop. Click the .EXE file to unzip the enclosed files. The formatting application will start. Insert the blank floppy disk into the disk drive and click "OK." The Windows 95 boot image will be created on the blank floppy disk. Use the Windows 95 Boot Disk Insert the Windows 95 boot up disk into the computer's floppy disk drive. Power the computer down by clicking "Start" and then clicking "Shutdown." Power on the computer with the Windows 95 boot disk in the floppy disk drive. The computer will boot up into MS-DOS to enable installation or troubleshooting of Windows 95.

Can't boot from flashdisk


USB thumb drives give you the ability to mobilize information, but they also have the power to act as a boot disk for both Windows and Mac computers. If you have a bootable thumb drive that you want to boot your computer from, you can easily set it up in the BIOS menu of your Windows computer or through the boot menu in Mac's OSX.

Plug your USB thumb drive into the computer. Boot the computer and follow the on-screen prompt to enter the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) menu. You should "Press a certain key Usually the DEL or the F2 key to enter BIOS setup" or something similar when you turn your computer on. Follow the directions to enter the BIOS menu. Scroll over to the "Boot" menu in the BIOS screen. Change the primary boot device to USB port or something similar depending on your BIOS menu. Restart the computer with the USB thumb drive in the USB port. b> Mac b> Plug your USB drive into your Mac's USB port. Turn on the computer while holding down the "Option" button on your keyboard. Wait for the boot menu to appear with all of your bootable devices shown. Use the mouse to select your USB thumb drive from the boot menu. Wait for the computer to boot using your thumb drive. Hope this helps.

Cannot get computer started. Keeps asking for Boot media device


There are quite a few possibilities over here.
  1. the boot device might have got changed from harddisk to some other.
  2. the boot sector of the computer might have gone bad and needs repair.
Solution for the first one:
Try getting into the boot sector of the computer and change the boot order to Harddisk as first boot device and then CD ROM and then Floppy drive (if you have)

Solution for second one:
If its a Vista/Win7, then try starting the computer into the advanced boot menu.. then select Startup Repair.

Yea sorry, forgot that tid-bit of info. It,s the W3118 eMachine / Gateway FIC K8MC51G


This issue can be caused by any of the below reasons.

-Corrupt boot files on the computer.
-Settings for hard disk drive are not correct.
-Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue.
-Boot devices not set properly.
-BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly.
-Connections loose or disconnected.
-Bad Hard disk drive or other bad hardware.

Solution:


Corrupt boot files on the computer

If the computer has no bootable files on the drive it is attempting to boot from it is possible that the computer may halt at " verifying dmi pool data..."

To resolve this issue:

Boot from a bootable floppy diskette. Ensure that this diskette was made on the same Microsoft Windows operating system that is installed on your computer.

Once at the A:\> prompt type "sys c:" and press enter. This should report the message "File system transferred." Once transferred remove the diskette and reboot the computer.

If the computer continues to not boot attempt to re-create the master boot record by booting from the bootable floppy diskette again. Once at the A:\> prompt type "fdisk /mbr" and press enter. This should return you to the prompt without giving you any message. Once at the prompt remove the diskette and reboot the computer.

Note: The above information only applies to Microsoft Windows users. If you are running a Linux / Unix variant or other operating system such as OS/2 and the computer is freezing at this DMI message ensure that Linux / Unix has been properly installed first and/or your boot manger is not corrupt.

Settings for hard disk drive are not correct

The computer freezing at "Verifying dmi pool data..." may be caused when the hard disk drive settings within CMOS are not set properly. Enter CMOS and verify that the hard disk drive settings are set properly and/or that it is set to Auto Detect.

Floppy diskette or CD in computer causing issue

Verify no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer. In some cases the computer may be trying to boot from either of these drives causing issues with the boot sequence.

Boot devices not set properly

The computer stopping at " verifying dmi pool data..." can be caused when the boot devices on your computer are not set properly in CMOS. First, verify that no CD or diskette is in your computer. If a CD or diskette is in the computer attempt to remove this first to determine if it was attempting to boot from it.

If No CD or diskette is in the computer and your computer still halts at the DMI message enter CMOS setup and verify that the boot options are set properly. We commonly recommend that the floppy be set the first boot device, hard drive as the second boot device and the CD-ROM as the third boot device.

BIOS corrupt or misc. setting not set properly

If none of the above recommendations have resolved your issue attempt to reset the BIOS / CMOS settings to the factory or default settings.

Connections loose or disconnected

If the computer has been recently moved or new hardware has been installed in the computer it is possible that a connection may be loose or even disconnected. Verify that the hard disk drive, floppy and CD-ROM cables are properly connected.

Bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware

If you computer continues to freeze at the DMI message after attempting all of the above recommendations it is possible that the computer may be freezing because of a bad hard disk drive or other bad hardware in the computer.

Before replacing any hardware we first recommend you attempt to erase everything on the hard drive and start over.

If you're unable to get to the point of re-installing the operating system it's likely your computer has a hardware issue and it's suggested that the hard drive be replaced. If that doesn't resolve the issue then have the motherboard replaced.
