Specs: Windows XP
hi i m getting a strange problem in my pc. It
detects my hard disk alternately means one
time it detects the hard disk and loads the XP
but if i restart it gives error "Reboot and select
proper boot device Insert boot media in
selected boot device". From here if i again
restart OS loads. I can't understand the
problem. Checked the Bios once the hard disk
is enabled and once its automatically gets
disabled we need to reenable it, if we want to
load XP each time. The board is an Intel 845.
Pls reply its very urgent.

Are u sure the boot order is set correct? Set it like this 1.Fdd 2.Cd rom 3.Hdd etc. And save changes.

If using a SATA hard drive be sure there are no sharp folds in the data cable and the cable is fully seated.

And check power cable if seated correct.

Sorry about that kuwese. Another senior moment.

More likely a data cable issue. Serial data can get corrupted easier than parallel data. A sharp fold in the cable is all it takes.

(Well, it worked on the other thread) If the bios has a 'hard disk pre delay' option set that to about 6 seconds.

You're not really green until you're soylent green.
