Question about Computers & Internet
When your system boots it looks for a startup file which is located on your hard drive to load your operating system. If your system doesn't find your hard drive it would post a disk read error message.
To be sure your HDD is detected by your system, you can go to your BIOS setting by pressing DEL or F1 or F2 or F12 it depends on your BIOS maker then try to see on your BIOS setting configuration if your HDD drive is detected or not.
Sometimes and always happens that we forget a media disc on our optical drive and since the default first boot device is the optical drive the system looks for a startup file on it and post a disk read error. So check if you leave any disc on your optical drive and remove it.
It is very safe to configure your BIOS setting to set the HDD as the first boot device in case we leave something on our optical drive most of the time.
Hope this helps.
