If the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk, this usually indicates that the hard disk has failed.
To get the Lenovo operating again, replace the hard disk and install Windows in the new hard disk plus
the Lenovo's device drivers and your programs.

USB DVD DRIVE


The pecking order for boot is controlled as you have said by the bios. I have found that not all USB connections are the same and have had to try the different USB connections to get one to boot.

Make sure that the DVD is a system boot disc and is in the drive when you power up.

If the HDD is still on the boot BIOS list I would try removing it from the list. The drive should still be available but the BIOS will not see it as a boot choice.

You may want to swap the SATA connections on the HDD drive making the SYS HDD no longer the default boot.

It is possible that the drivers for the DVD drive you are trying to boot from are not loaded and the drive is not accessible. Look at the bios using setup after turn on to see if the DVD drive is registered. It may be it gets its driver later during the windows boot.

You may have to use more of a generic DVD drive.or internal drive.

My mitac m32-sp3068 desktop computer,says bios cannot find hard drive or discs


Possible hdd failure. Reset the system and check the BIOS settings for the hdd. Make sure the settings are correct.
The system will not lose just a portion of the BIOS, all or none.

Inspiron 531 wont boot up. just get dell screen then says Sata 0 Sata 1 Tsst corp DVD sata 2 None sata 3 None


If yo are sure that you have a working operating system on your hard disk , and this error started after you (probably) defaulted the Bios settings or something else did ....Than I think the lack of sata raid driver makes the reading of your hard disk impossible ..To fix this ..either try to reinstall the operation system and during it ..choose to add a 3rd party driver (look for raid driver on your motherboard cd ..or on the manufacturer's support site ) ..or ..just get into Bios again ..look for the HDD in the advanced options ..and select the hdd 0 ..and eliminate the achi feature ..and replace it with sata as ide ..or compatible ..and save settings with F10 and restart ..It will make the hdd visible ..and support installation if it has non ...or just boot up ..but will work as IDE and not raid ..

I have a Seagate Barracuda HDD not detected bios: Family: 7200.12 Model: ST3160318AS Size: 160Gbytes Firmware: CC38


Check that the small jumper is set correctly: MA(ster) or SL(ave) or C(able) S(elect).
Check that the disk-drive is getting electrical power (vibrating? getting warm?)
Check that the data-cable between the disk-drive and the motherboard is connected at both ends.
Check that the BIOS settings for disk-drives are set to 'AUTO' (not 'NONE').

Samsung 200gb hdd


When u bought a new hdd, it shud not have any partition on it. but in ur case, I assume u have formatted it to ntfs but no operating system is installed in it.

If u want to make the new hdd as slave and have another old hdd as primary, that have already an operating system installed in it, then the problem shud be hdd boot priority in bios. Enter ur bios and check for hdd boot priority and put the old hdd to the top most order, then restart. this shud fix the problem.

If u installed OS in ur new hdd (win xp),
1) ntldr or ntdetect.com is missing on root dir. (c:\). If u have another computer that works and have xp installed, just put this new hdd along with the current hdd and boot to windows. Copy ntldr and ntdetect.com to your new hdd. Or another way is just repair using windows xp boot cd.
2)the windows partition is not set 'active'. to set active, boot into winxp setup and press 'r'. this will lead to recovery console. type ur passwrod for admin (def=none). use diskpart command to set active. for easy way, put the new hdd to another computer. boot to windows. rightclick my computer, choose manage. on left pane select disk manager. rightclick on ur partition, then set active.

Hope this help
