Tecra M3 PTM30A will not boot from the cd to reinstall windows

Hi all

Totally new here and I have a question. I replaced the hard drive in the laptop, the old man died.
I set the bios to boot from the cd. He reads the Windows XP cd for a minute then jump to trying to boot on the network adapter.

Do I need to have the cd of recovery or must it be able to boot from a plain old XP cd?
If it can boot from a normal cd is the stuffed ROM or am I missing something?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help you.

Your new hard drive is recognized by the Bios?

> Do I need to have the cd of recovery or must it be able to boot from a plain old XP cd?

You can use a recovery (if available) disk or Windows disk copy. In the Bios, you must set the Cd/DVD-ROM as 1st boot device and press F10 save and exit. Turn it back on. Thus, your computer you should start the installation of the Cd drive.

  • HP Pavilion p7-1414 will not boot from the CD

    Hello

    I recently bought your desktop HP Pavilion p7 1414, I am trying to boot from a CD to reinstall Windows 8 - I put the CD to start first in the BIOS, but when I restart the computer and I have the CD, "press any key to boot from the CD" is not displayed.  It starts just directly to the computer HARD disk in Windows to connect.

    I have 64-bit Windows 8. 6 GB of RAM and a terabyte of HARD drive space.  I'm looking to reinstall Windows 8 for a new start.  Any ideas why it won't boot from the CD?

    Very happy!

    Hello

    There are various reasons why this error message:
    In most cases this error because the laptop is trying to boot from a HARD drive or flash drive that is not configured correctly. Maybe the drive is not bootable or not compatible.

    It would also be possible that some sectors on the HARD disk, HARD drive failures are corrupt or BIOS is damaged. NTLDR error messages may also appear if the master boot record is damaged.

    In your case I recommend that you format the first HARD drive before booting from the hard drive CD7DVD external using Win XP CD.

    By the way: you must add SATA driver to CD Win XP using nLite.
    The SATA driver is placed on the European driver Toshiba page in the Intel Storage Manager

    The SATA driver is needed to recognize the HDD by Win XP!

  • Z575 will not boot from the hard drive or restore DVD

    Need help on a laptop Z575 age of 2 years that immediately after an automatic update of windows, will not start either from the hard disk or restore DVDs (blue screen). Does not start in safe mode, not booting from a rescue of third party DVD. Attempt to start, it will show you the ability to start the Startup Repair tool. Repair shows that it is unable to fix with the detail following problem error messages:
    Signature of the problem 1: 6.1.7600.16385
    Signature of problem 2: 6.1.7600.16385
    Signature of the problem 3: unknown
    Signature of the 4:21200196 problem
    Signature problem 5: auto failover
    Signature of the problem 6:7
    Signature of the 7 problem: bad driver
    OS version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1

    Normally think that the hard drive has failed or that windows update caused a software problem, but the inability to boot from any restore disk that makes me think that there is another serious problem with the hardware of the laptop.

    Any help would be appreciated. THX

    Additional note: when you try to boot from a restore disc, blue screen, error message:
    Stop: 0x0000007B (0xF78DA640, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
    It is a hardware failure that cannot be restarted soft.

    I also removed the hard drive and RAM, reinstalled and rebooted, no change.

    Additional note: I was able to access the hard drive with a recovery of old program, focused on the (SpaceFM) ram charged through the DVD player. Hard drive data appears intact. Still does not start from the hard disk or a DVD of windows system.

    Thank you. Rather than buying a 4 GB or more large key USB comes from put this into hard drive replacement. Installed correctly, boots very well now. No other error of the optical drive... and no explanation I can see, but that's it.

    Unless something else pops up we'll just call cela a HARD drive failed after 2 years of common use. Thanks again.

  • Windows 7 for Lenovo G50-70 - the computer will not boot from the CD

    Hello world

    I hope that someone here will be able to help

    I bought a new laptop with Windows 8.1. I want to install Windows 7 on that I know well because I can't use the new windows. I changed the settings in the BIOS to get the machine to boot from the CD, but it won't be fair. I also tried to restore the system to boot from the CD, but it installs just the Windows pre-installed, new instead. Also, I can't access the CD from the drive while all my other computers are capable of (what is strange)

    Can someone help, please?

    See you soon

    PS. : I can turn on the computer through the small "boot botton" on the side and select the DVD drive to boot from. But this is not followed by the message "Press any key to boot from CD" and the computer starts just W8 yet;

    I contacted customer service and followed your advice. They refused to help him on the ground that there nothing wrong with the machine in their opinion, and since I wanted to change operating system. All preinstalled spyprogrammes Lenovo has been erased with this downgrade. So far, I've owned a laptop computer brand new and expensive for a year I used only to waste my time, trying to make it work, that was not why I bought it in the first place. What a RIP-OFF!

  • XPS 12 / Win 8: how to boot from the recovery partition / reinstall Windows?

    Messed up things on a newly purchased 12 XPS in Windows 8, and I want to boot from the recovery partition and reinstall windows.

    Support online pages point by pressing F8 during startup, but this does not at all.

    How can I access the recovery partition?

    To access to the menu of, , press F2.

    To enter the boot options menu, press F12.

    Because the XPS 12 boots so fast, it is better to repeatedly press F2 or F12 after restarting the machine. During the startup process, texts for options should appear at the bottom right of the screen. If you enter Windows, you will need to restart again and press F2 or F12 until it works. However, I don't think there is an option in the BIOS to restore the computer to its factory condition. The previous post by DELL-VIKRAM M describes how to properly restore the machine to its factory state.

  • Stops on his own computer and will not boot from the CD

    someone entered cmd and did something to my computer, now, the computer shuts itself, what can I do I tried to reinstall windows and the computer does not start from cd?

    * original title - someone entered cmd and did something to my computer, now, the computer shuts itself, what can I do I tried to reinstall windows and the computer does not start from cd? *

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    See you soon.

  • Re: satellite A300 screen turns off after the toshiba logo, will not boot from the CD/DVD

    Hello, I have this problem with Toshiba satellite A300.

    I deleted several files and folders of my drives C and E. To restart the computer, it only shows the Toshiba logo then a slightly gray white screen on a thorough inspection. Whenever I press CRL + ALT + DELETE, the computer restarts and behaves in the same way.

    I tried to use an external monitor, but there is no difference. The tent to start using a CD/DVD, same behaviour occurs, it does not start and screen remains blank after the Toshiba logo, I tried even to change g the order of boot, but in vain.

    What could happen?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello

    It seems that you deleted system files and Windows no longer starts. Have you tried to restore the disk image factory settings or hard drive recovery? Or do copy the Windows installation... It is easier to reinstall rather fix the problem.

  • Windows 8 HP laptop Pavilion will not boot from the cd?

    Hi all

    I have a Windows 8 HP Pavilion laptop. I forgot the password of my account, but I wasn't worried because I had a recovery disc. However, even with the cd in the laptop, I directed to the login page every time. I want the cd to run the place and recover my account! I have enabled the legacy in BIOS and disable secure startup, and I even changed my boot order to put the boot first CD. None of this works well. Can someone help me? I really want to access my laptop soon.

    Thank you

    Alice

    Immediately after switching on the laptop, press the ESC key to get a menu. Then press F9 boot options. Use the arrow key to move down and select/highlight the CD/DVD drive, and then press the Enter key.

  • Satellite L300-1AS - error PXE - boot error - will not boot from USB

    Startup error - error PXE-L300 1AS - will not boot from USB

    I recently bought a new HD to replace the original that my laptop takes an hour to load.

    I put the new drive hard at in the BIOS setting, I chose to boot from USB... USB is recognized as it appears on the screen of the BIOS. I disabled the LAN option as it gives me PXE error... I think that the USB files are not read. as I handed the old HD and attached to boot from USB but it just goes to the start screen.

    I thought that perhaps I bought the wrong HD, but a new appeared on the BIOS setting... I'm a bit confused and would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction...

    Any help or advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    New HARD drive has nothing to do with it. Problem must be your USB key.
    In your ad you didn t wrote what is on it, and we don t know if USB can operate as boot device or not.

    I put t know what OS you want to install right now but original recovery DVDs or use Microsoft installation disc and install Win7 32 bit. I ve installed on friends L300 and it works perfectly.

  • HP TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 ENVY: fried, drive will NOT boot from usb

    Hard drive clicking on, definitely fried. Replaced by the new hard drive. No matter what I do, it will not start from the

    bootable USB key with windows 8 install on it.  Stick to boots on other computers.

    I press ESC to the maximum power that I can get the boot menu, F1 works great, F2 works very well.  If I select F9 for boot options, for bios F10 or F11 to restore it goes back to the found boot device, hard drive (3F0) asks me to press F2 for the diagnosis of sys, the screen flashes. will not change.  No matter what I try, I'm stuck in this endless loop.

    How can I put an operating system on this device?

    Model # c2k82ua #abl

    Nothing I've tried has worked. However, I have finally managed to make it work has that.  I disconnected the battery for the bios for a bit. After that, I could get in the bios setup. Still would not start from a good bootable USB then I activated the Legacy and set the boot order to boot from an external USB Cdrom. Reinstalled windows 8 and all is good now thanks for all the comments!

    Thanks a lot for sharing that you cannot restore icloud.

    Maybe include some details as to what happens when your restore IE. error message?
