  1. Sounds like you removed an internal IDE DVD-ROM drive, is that correct? If so, was the DVD-ROM and HDD on the same IDE cable?

    If so, you may need to set the HDD to work in single drive mode (assuming there isn't another IDE device attached to the same cable).
  2. @COLGeek

    The HDD IS IDE There is an old (non working) IDE CD-ROM Too but i disconnected before starting any thing MY DVD IS SATA

    There Is one IDE Connected THE MAXTOR HDD & one Sata (My DVD)
  3. Understood. Will the system start in Safe Mode (without the SATA DVD-ROM attached)?
  4. No >> No safe mode /Networking /Start normally
    no option allows me to log in either restart or show the blue 0x0000007b
  5. Did you try reconnecting the defective IDE CD-ROM (just to get the system to boot)?
  6. i did nothing either
