Could not proceed to boot


To check your hard disk drive if its detected, turn on your computer and press DEL or F2 to enter BIOS setup. Then go to standard cmos setup and there should be the hard drive detected as Primary or Secondary IDE or SATA. If detected and not loading into windows that case your operating system is corrupted. However If your hard drive is not detected on your bios, turn off your computer and unplug and plug your hard disk drive then turn on your computer start pressing again DEL or F2 then check again your hard drive if it is detected.

If your hard disk drive and cd/dvd rom drive are the same cable you can switch the cable to check if the cable of the hard drive are ok. After you have checked and you found out that the two cables are ok that means you will have to format your computer. But you must backup all your data and files before doing so. Formatting your computer will erase or delete the entire space of the partition which you perform formatting.

Here is the video tutorial on how to format your computer using windows xp

Have a nice day.

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?


If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Cheers!

Installing new hard drive.


From what it sounds like it is not your motherboard or harddrive. it is the formating of the hard drive. What is the format you are using for your harddrive ? FAT32 or NTFS ? are you Partitioning your drive ? Are you familure with dos commands ?

System is no boot neither with cd-rom nor hard disk


Hi, Based of your post/description and assuming not hardware problem, you may have to set up the priority boot device in the BIOS to CD. This will tell your mb to look for a boot medium from the cd first. This is normally in the Advance Setup/1st Boot Device. Of course soon as installed, you have to boot from the HD next time. Good luck and kind regards.
