Pressing F7 will access the system setup. In the main menu you will see the drives in the the system. The BIOS should be able to auto-detect all the installed drives in the tower. Once the system successfully sees the disk you save changes and exit.

While i am tring to repair 2003 standard server on IBM 3400 Tower server i am facing a issue that hdd not found


Windows not see the disk because they are connected through a raid controller.
When you start the recovery windows you have to offer the installer the driver for raid. Installer wait new driver only 5 seconds.
During this time you must press "F3" and point driver on floppy.

My thinkpad 2628 wont recognize my hard drive and tells me i dont have a operating system on it


This means it has crashed. You will need to use your recovery disk that came with the laptop to re-install Windows and the system drivers.

When i installed hard drive and set the jumper on primary master it dint show up and in bios the txt is showing like that primary master drive 0 (not installed)


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test or replace all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard)) drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
you could run the check disk utility

click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)

The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:

IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?
IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?

Ibm thinkpad r60 hard drive not recognized in windows setup, but is recognized in bios. Why and hw the problem can be solved


It usually means that the Hard Drive and/or the adapter(plug) on the motherboard it plugs into needs a specific driver (storage) that is not in the list of drivers that the WIndows disc you are installing from has included on it. You may have to find this driver on the IBM Support site for your exact laptop and load it onto a USB flash drive from another computer, then load it from that USB flash drive during setup of Windows.

This can be tricky. If you can get a disc from IBM which loads this driver automatically you'd probably find it less of a hassle.

BSOD keeps on flashing during installation of Win XP


I think the problem is with your RAM installed, try to swap other memory on your computer or try your RAM to other PC to determine if its working.

Dell 8300 not loading xp home with the blue screen of death


To resolve this behavior, contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant.

To work around this behavior, manually install the Standard PC hardware abstraction layer (HAL):
  1. Restart the computer to restart Setup.
  2. When Setup starts again, press F7 (not F6) when you see the "Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver" screen.
Windows automatically disables the installation of the ACPI HAL and installs the Standard PC HAL.
