i was going install fedora along side windows 7 after wiping the linux mint partitions using minitool partition wizard..i forgot to restore bcd using easy bcd and inserted the fedora disc..but due to some necessity i cancelled the installation before it had started
after that whenever i try to start my computer i get the message:
error no such partition
so i inserted my windows 7 install disc but the pc wont recognise it..when i selected to boot it from boot menu i got the message : boot failure. i also tried with a few linux discs but got the same message..
i also created a bootable usb using winflash tool and on selecting it to boot the screen shows a blinking dash and nothing else..
i checked the cables and they seem to be allright..i really cant understand how to fix my pc
Buy a new cmos battery not so much cost only 1$ or below.
try this :remove cmos battery.power on.goto bios.restart.
if the system goto bios without cmos battery the cmos battery current is fully discharged.
stay in bios atleast 1 minute if system hang or any isseus ,ram problem.
Check u r sata cable and power cables has any defect.
try this :
insert hdd in other power cables and remove sata cable in cd drive and insert it in hdd.if it works sata cable is comblind.
if ur os dvd is working.
here is what i did..i removed the cmos battery and satrted my computer..
it gave a warning cmos battery failure, checksum failure and another failure..i restarted the pc and pressed f2 to enter bios setup. pressed the resart button..the pc passed the bios screen and back to the same screen saying "error:no such partition"
i rebooted the pc and enetered bios setup pressing f2..it stayed there for more than five minutes without any hang or error. ...
hope i could follow ur instructions..i tried to boot from dvd again but still got the boot failure message..
okay i removed all cables connecting the dvd drive and hard drive and re connected them.. i booted my pc and still getting the same dvd boot failure..boot order is correct. i tried booting from usb stick but it is showing a blank screen with a dash blinking..
i created the usb using winflash tool and windows 7 dvd. please tell me what else can be done to fix the problems..which parts are malfuntioning and why isnt the usb drive booting?????
Sure friend its my duty .said thanks to tom to give this opertunity.and dont type "please " its my small request.
Give u r mobo "Model no space bios" in google search.download latest bios by date provided in details.See some videos in youtube also help u by simply type modelno space bios in it. its easy no problem just takes a minute to update.
for hdd is easyer then mobo
download latest firmware not more then 20mb iso file.burn to cd.boot from cd that detect hdd click on hdd to proced update.
Dvd drive problem.insert dvd drive in other system and put the os cd check it is shown the files.if show files then u r sata slot is complind in u r system.if not show file the drive is complind.
try in other sata port.
Have you tried booting from a live CD, such as Puppy,UBCD, Hirens?
If you can, have a look at the hard drive with something like Gparted. You may have managed to delete the partition and it may need reformating,
