This error indicates that the system is not able to find a boot-able device to load the Operating System. It could be something as simple as a disconnected hard drive, or it could even be a corrupt hard drive.
You can check if the hard disk is being detected in the BIOS. The key to enter BIOS in E-machines systems are Tab, Del or F2.
If the hard disk is being detected in the BIOS, it could be a faulty hard disk. You can try booting from the recovery partition by pressing Alt+F10 when starting up the computer. If you're able to get into the Recovery Partition, you can try a recovery, but you might lose all your data. If you're not even able to get into the Recovery Partition, you'll need to get the Windows disc for installing the Operating System again.
it mean your operating system is corrupted or your hard disk is not detected with machine
for operating system re install your operating system and if you face any trouble to installing operating system like hard disk not found or no drive.
so go to setup and check that if there showing any hard drive. absoultly not so plug your data cable and power cable properly on your hard disk and re check now if problem is not solve yet. so now pull out your hard disk from pc and plug the both wire of power and data and now check that your hard disk is running making some noise you can feel that its running if not so replace your hard disk card and now plug it on pc it will running now and install your operating system . you can operate your pc with your old data. thanks
first thing to do is to remove and reconnect the hard disk to the system. devices like hard disk not detected often is just a result of loose connections. if this will not work, may be a good idea to test another hard disk with your computer or test the hard disk on another computer to isolate if the hard disk will need to be replaced.
Well, since the new hard disk is not formatted, and there is nothing currently on it, you will not get a dos prompt or an operating system detected. What you need to do is insert your Windows XP disk, then reboot the machine. When you see the HP screen, tap the F12 key, which will take you to a boot menu. On the boot menu, choose your CD drive, then the computer will boot from the windows disk. From there, just format your disk, and install Windows.
when installing a new hard drive, there is nothing for the bios to read to run the operating system
go to the bios , boot section and change the boot sequence to boot from cd first
then restart the computer and reinstall the operating system disc in that cd when the computer is up and running change the bios back to hdd as first boot selection
