I've Been Asked To Take A Look At A Computer For Somebody And For What Ever Reason I can't get it to go.System SpecsPentium 41 Gig Of RamAsRock P415G MotherboardDVD-RW IDECaseCom 300watt PSU80Gig Hard DriveThe Client Told Me That an error message is displayed When I looked at this it has the Boot Options menu. So I Boot Normally whats happening its Rebooting In A Loop When you get to the Windows XP Splash Screen Reboot And So On.My First Thought was to see if I can re-install Windows and I got an XP OEM Lying about so I used that as there is a Key Sticker On The Case.I Made sure the 1st Boot Device Was the CD When It attempts to load from the Disk I get this Error:"Reboot And Select Proper Boot Device Or Insert Boot Media In Selected Boot Device And Press A Key"Any Ideas Please?ThanksRob
Try pressing F8 during booting and select "Last Known good.."If that doesn't work try safemode and run sfc /scannow in safemode.Also run chkdskyour error message is often reported when a hard drive is failing.
You will need the XP Boot Floppy setup from Microsoft to proceed with Clean Install - you can't boot from Windows XP CD.click hereobtainable from Microsoft - click here
Hi Thanks FBThe Same Scenario Happens when I try to go enter into safe mode, It just goes into a rebooting loop.
northumbria61No Floppy Drive On Board Sorry!
You are obviously using another computer - if you have a floppy drive you can create them from there -or find someone who has a floopy drive to access.
There are six Windows XP Setup boot floppy disks. You must have the files and the drivers that these disks contain to access the CD drive and to start the Setup process.
I don't have a floppy Drive!
Well unless you can get access to a floppy drive you can't make the "floppies" which are needed for the initial setup of XP prior to running the XP CD.
Failing that - take your pick from here - click here
Of course you can boot with an XP cd.click hereIt is possible that your keyboard is not being seen ,hence you can not press any key when asked if you want to boot from cd.
