Hello Charles:
The reason your PC is saying "hard disk not found is because it isn't seeing any hard drives in your system. If your using a CD or DVD to install your OS you need to go into your Bios and set your boot settings to boot from CD-Rom first, that way it will boot from the CD or DVD first and then it will hopefully see your hard drive and start installing once it has performed its system checks.
Hope this helps, if you need more assistance just holler back.
Sincerely, Peter N.

This will occure for a couple of reasons.

1. Your hard drive has gone bad or the connectors have.
2. Your bois is set to boot from the network card, and not the hard drive.

1. boot to the bois, and look to see if it "sees" your hard drive. If not replace the hard drive. This will require you to install the OS and software.

2. Boot to the bois, check the boot order and remove or disable boot from LAN or PXE. If this is the problem you should now boot from the hard drive, if not you will probably still get the no OS found error indicating a bad hard drive (see 1 above).

Hope this helps

From another computer build a msdos floppy disc, yes floppy disc.
I believe you computer accepts floppys does it not? and i also asume you are running xp, you can try running the startup disc and trying to check disc, but if you cannont procede, i would opt into downloading another copy of the windows and try installing through that method. If the disc dosent load, and you get that error message of the bat, another step will be waiting for you.

First, upon startup, go into the BIOS configuration page. Check the list of hard disks present. If none are shown, your hard drive has died.
If the hard drive is present, and if you have an OS install CD, try booting from that, then running the disk check utility. (In Windows, select Recovery Console, then type "CHKDSK C:" on the command line (omit the quotes). In Linux, open Terminal, then type "fsck -f".
If you have questions about running the disk repair program, typing "CHKDSK /?" or "man fsck" at the command line gives you the instructions and describes the options.

There might be a problem in your Hard drive. If you have tried so, Try removing your hard drive and set it up again. If it still doesn't work.You may try using a recovery disk or the cd used to install the operating system. If still the error is appearing, try to reinstall the operating system. if still, I'm sorry you might need to replace your hard drive.

This seems to be a failure of the HARD DISC and so the PC does not boot and go to the OS.
This means that the hard disc must be replaced if the PC does not boot up and so the OS must be reinstalled.

Hi there! Yesterday I was installing Windows XP


Sorry to hear your having issues installing the OS.

There is two problems your facing one is the disk is so scratched that the system can not read the disk or the hard drive has bad sectors or clusters which are failing when being written to.

You have two options to fix this one is to make sure the cd is clean an or replace your hard drive.

General disk read error message tend to be from hard drive cylinder's.

I power up the computer and get ''operating system not found'' on the screen.


The operating system not found error message is one commonly seen by techs and non-technical people alike. If you run into one, it may not be a problem at all. Here's an example:

If you're installing a new operating system to a hard drive or partition, or have just installed a new mother board, chances are you aren't alone. Most of the occurrences of the operating system not found error occur during these processes. In many cases, this is simply BIOS related, and can be changed very quickly (and remedied) during the Boot process. There are a wide variety of occurrences of this error, so if you have recently been "tinkering" or have installed a new operating system, take heart, there are many computer forums on the subject which may be able to point you to an answer.

Another reason why you may get an operating system not found message, is due to a damaged or incorrectly formatted partition. If your computer can't read the partition, then all data stored within that partition cannot be found. This includes your operating system. To solve the problem, you may need to look into partition recovery.

There are instances, however, when the operating system not found error occurs because of file system error, or worse, hard disk drive failure. If this is the case, you may require professional hard disk drive recovery, especially if you were not changing the system details recently, and were just working as normal.
When To Suspect Hard Disk Drive Failure Certainly, there is an explanation for everything, and the operating system not found error can be explained very easily. First, check your floppy disk drive. Is there a disk in it? In cases where this occurs, simply removing the floppy disk will likely solve your problem. Your computer may have been looking for an operating system on the floppy, and as a result, you were handed an error message. Removing the floppy disk should fix your issue.

If there is no floppy disk in your drive, it may be time to check the boot sequence. You can do this in your BIOS. First of all, does your hard drive get detected as the primary hard drive? If it does not, your hard drive may have in fact failed. If it does, move to the Boot Sequence section of the BIOS. If your hard drive does not show up within the first three boot devices, you probably have a problem. Adjust your BIOS accordingly.

Can't Find Hard Disk Drive Either

If you've done these preliminary checks, and are still receiving the operating system not found error, you could be facing hard disk drive failure. If this is the case, remember : DO NOT PANIC. 99 times out of 100, your hard drive's data can be recovered by a professional firm. So rest easy. Then try this test if you have another computer system available.

First, disconnect your hard disk drive from your system, and connect it to a system you know works as the slave drive.

Second, boot up the system and go into Windows explorer. If you can see the drive, you may not have a problem at all, or have one which can be fixed with simple data recovery software tools (Do a search on Google for data recovery software tools for a selection).

If, on the other hand, you cannot see your drive, you may want to consult a professional hard disk drive recovery shop like Hard Disk Recovery Services. Contact us here for a hard disk drive recovery quote, and we will usually be able to diagnose your problem over the phon

Error code 10-fc06-002 in toshiba a200 after running recovery disks


This is a toshiba error when running recovery discs on your machine. There are two reasons that this could occur, one would be corrupted Recovery Discs and the other is bad hardware (Hard Disk Drive).

Possible causes of these error conditions are listed at right. Use this list as a troubleshooting guide -- not as an absolute list of causes, as there may be others.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC10-1710" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-0241" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive or defective memory.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-045D" -- may be caused by a faulty hard drive.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC06-0002" -- may be caused by damaged recovery media or faulty hard drive.
"An error has occurred. ERROR :10-FC12-0970" -- may be caused by defective memory.
