Apple :: F1-f12 - Way To Disable - Partition With Boot Camp

Mar 3, 2009

We all know that the f1-f12 keys have their own functions. But I used to always use those keys for other things in World of Warcraft (on a PC that is). Now that I'm on a mac, I can't use the f keys even if I keybind them. Is there a way to disable them for just this program?

And on a side question, is it possible to make a partition with boot camp and then have vmware or parallels run off that partition? Or do I have to install windows twice for boot camp and vmware/parallels?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Will Not Boot Into Recovery Partition

Sep 4, 2012

Could not boot into recovery mode, launch the command prompt and run the following, bcdedit /enum all? I have a friends Dell 1545 and I think the Boot Manager/Loader is screwed up b/c it is not booting into recovery. I can boot to the Windows 7 OS, but we need to do a factory restore because of a nasty virus she has.

Apple :: Windows Error After Removing Boot Camp Partition

Mar 16, 2009

I partitioned my hard drive for boot camp when I got it, and used Windows for a bit. I then decided to remove the Windows partition and use OSX only.

I used disk utility and re-claimed the partition size used for Windows. Cool.

Now whenever my computer's battery dies when it's in sleep mode, plugging it in does not recall Mac OSX (you know the gray screen that eventually resumes to Leopard?). On top of that, when I restart my MBP, it goes into a windows "non-system disk, remove and press enter" thing. I have to restart and hold down option to select Mac OSX, as if there was still a partition. But no windows option shows up.

I'm confused and this is getting annoying. I've checked disk utility again, it's showing one partition. There must be something that got left behind. Any ideas? I have thought about wiping and Time Machining it, but I'm afraid whatever is left behind will get backed up as well - not to mention having to re-register all my software is a pain I'd rather not have to do.

Dell Inspiron 15R :: Can't Boot To Windows - No Recovery Partition Option?

Mar 3, 2013

I have an Inspiron 15R Model 5010-3228 

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: windowssystem32configsystem

I was able to run diags from F12 at startup - everything seemed to pass but it ended with a message indicating there was no recovery partition.

I have no original media to reinstall.

The laptop was a gift from my father-in-law in Poland. As a result Dell would not provide service. Warranty is now expired.

HP Mini 5101 OS/Software :: F11 - Doesn't Boot Into Recovery Partition

Jan 2, 2010

I'm a owner of a HP Mini 5101. It has a function to press F11 to return the system into the "out-of-the-box" state. But my problem starts here. When I press F11 I imediately get a screen that says Windows Boot manager on top and and error : 0xc000000e and required device is inaccessible.
This started after I made a "clean" install with the DVD Windows 7 that came with the computer as I tried to avoid all the "crapware" that comes included with the new notebook.
If I boot into Windows, the HP_RECOVERY partition is visible and the HP recovery image is on it.
Is there anyway to get the F11 recovery back to working state?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: How To Boot From Recovery Partition On Cloned Drive With Vista

Dec 8, 2014

My uncle has a Dell Inspiron 1545 with 3Gb RAM, 160 Gb HD and Windows Vista Home Premium. On boot up there is an error message stating that a back up should be performed immediately as the hard drive has a serious problem.

The good news is that I managed to make a clone of the 160 Gb HD to a 1000 Gb HD (Western Digital Blue) using Paragon software before the original drive failed. The bad news is that the cloning process stopped at 42%, but this 42% included the recovery partition and another part of the HD called Dell Utility.

I installed the cloned WD drive and pressed F8 on boot up, but the advanced boot menu did not appear. Instead I get the error message 'no bootable devices'.

I ran the diagnostics program using F5. All the tests were completed and 'passed'. The BIOS recognizes the new drive as 1000 Gb.

Question: how do I boot the laptop? My uncle does not have any recovery media.

Acer :: (6935G) Boot Problem After Restart (cant Access Bios / Boot From Disk Etc)

Jan 9, 2010

I got this laptop a few days ago, I currently have 7 and XP installed on it and kind of have vista...(read further down).

My 7 seemed to break today after playing around with a program called powerstrip trying to get my external monitor to show the right resolution (I've realised now the cable vga was broke, but meh) but this is not the full problem, after windows 7 failed to boot I tried to boot xp after turning it off during the windows 7 splash screen and now im stuck with a dash when I turn the laptop on (I dont know if its actully related to something I've done or not).

If I turn the laptop on a flashing dash comes on in the top right, it then stops flashing and turns into a none flashing dash further up the screen and just locks here and I cant do anything at all other than trying to restart it. When I had this problem previously (at least I think this problem) on my desktop it usualy turned out to be something usb related but I have everything unplugged (all though the bluetooth adapter light is on when it is doing this) so I realy dont know what to do...............

Lenovo P500 P/Y/Z Series :: Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

May 25, 2014

My Ideapoad P500 is approximately 16 months old (so the warranty period is out, obviously!) A couple of nights after a reboot I got the message "Repairing Hard Disk errors. This could take an hour or longer."... or something very similar. The laptop hung up at that message for more than 18 hours.
I did a hard reboot and now get the message "Checking media" followed by the error "Boot failed." This leads to the message, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed."No I don't have any recovery media.Yes I have pretty recent backups so that is not a problem.I've got an enclosure that I can use to hook my laptop hard drive up to so I can see if the drive is even readable.
Now here is the 64 thousand dollar question... how do I get the hard drive out of the laptop? I have taken the five screws out of the back. At that point, I think the DVD drive should slide out, but it does not.how to get the hard drive out?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y500 / Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

Jul 31, 2013

I have a y500 Lenovo gaming laptop with Windows 8, and for the past couple of days, each time my laptop is put in hibernation or powered down, whenever I turn it back on it gives me this message:

"Default Boot Device Missing or boot failed Insert recovery media and hit any key Then select boot manager to choose a new boot device to boot or recovery media."

Then it brings me to a page with 3 boot options, and only the Windows Boot Manager works. I'm doing scans and hardware scans but so far nothing is being found. This laptop is less than 2 months old so I really don't think it's a hardware problem, and I haven't downloaded anything recently that may have messed this up. I would contact Lenovo but I'm unsure if this is an issue with the laptop, or Windows 8.

Acer Aspire E1 522-3657 :: Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed

Oct 11, 2014

I have a Acer E1 522-3657 computer, which my son set-up for me but did not make the recovery disc(s). The unit is just outside of the warranty period when the hard drive failed. The hard drive just makes a clicking noise and after the logo screen appears it goes to a blue screen with a box that has the following message with in, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed. Insert recovery Media and Hit any key.....Then Select 'Boot Manager' to choose a new Boot Device or to Boot Recovery Media.
I have installed a brand-new Western Digital 1T Sata3 harddrive to replace the Toshia 750 GB original Drive. After turning the computer on and at the logo screen I press and hold F2, this takes me to the InsydeH20 Setup Utility Screen. I see under the "Information" menu that the installed harddrive model and serial number appear. I see in the "Boot" menu, Boot Mode: "UEFI" and Secure Boot: "Enabled".
Under the "Exit" menu, Exit Saving Changes is highlighted. When I press F10 a "setup Configuration" box appears asking to save configuration changes and exit now? "Yes" is highlighted to which I hit Enter and are returned to the "Default Boot Device.......page. I then hit ecs twice and are at a black screen with the message No bootable device -- Please Restart system_appearing in the upper left corner of the screen. I then push and hold the power button until the computer shuts off.
I have ordered from acer the "Acer E-recovery Media Disc Set", which is specific to the SNID of my computer. I have not attempted to format the new hard drive in any way.  I assume the E-recovery Media Disc Set will handle that operation due to the multiple partitions required.
In view of the above situation, do I need to set up the computer in any way before I start to utilize the E-recovery Media Disc set. I assume the Media will be on CD's. The computer was running Win 8.0 which was updated to Win 8.1 and was running very well, very stable.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Z510 - Default Boot Device Missing Or Boot Failed After BIOS Update

Dec 13, 2013

I get the error in the Title after i tried to flash the latest BIOS update for the Z510. I can press ok and then get into the boot manager but i cant choose anything there. Also I cant boot from a Disk with e.g. XP on it.
I also tried the Inside BIOS crisis mode (fn+r) with the BIOS file on my USB drive but it doesn't work and tries to access the file on the USB drive but boots normally instead to the error again. (Couldn't try it with removed battery as I have to remove the whole back to remove the battery on the Z510).

Dell Optiplex 7010 :: No Boot From CD-DVD Even With UEFI OFF And Secure Boot Off

Oct 31, 2014

Everyone:  Absolutely cannot boot from CD-DVD even if I turn OFF Secure Boot and UEFI and my machine lists my CD-DVD as a boot option.  When I then try to boot from the CD-DVD, I get an error message.  (Optiplex 7010 Mini-Tower with Win 8 Pro 64-bit, an Intel i5 3470 processor, 8 GB RAM and 500 GB hard drive.  It has BIOS version A16 right now.)

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E531 Not Able To Boot From CD It Always Boot Into Preinstalled Windows 8

Nov 14, 2013

just received my new E531 Edge Thinkpad from Lenovo.
Right now I'm not able to boot from CD, it will always boot into the preinstalled Windows 8.
I've tried the F12 method to select a different boot device during startup where I can see the installed DVD RAM drive and select it, but no effect it returns immediately to the select screen.
I've played around with the various BIOS setting disabling the secure boot option and changing the boot order so that the DVD drive is first. Then the system will check for the the CD (you can hear it spinning during start up) but will start into Windows 8 right afterwards again.
I checked with various bootable CDs as well as DVDs but always same effect.
What am I missing? Any other BIOS or Windows 8 settings I need to change for that.
I have other Lenovo notebooks running like the X230, the T520 or an older T61 where booting from CD never seems to be an issue.
As the DVD drive is working correctly within Windows 8 I assume that it is in general functioning and shouldn't be broken.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5 Won't Boot

Mar 11, 2010

HP gave me a dv5 as a replacement for a zd7000 laptop that quit.

Now the dv5 has quit. It won't boot. It gets to the HP Logo screen and freezes. It never makes it to the BIOS screen.

I chatted online with HP support. After performing a few tests (the fan runs, etc) they concluded its a hardware problem. They want $400 to fix it.

The unit is 16 months old. It has seen VERY light usage.

I've sent an email to the people who handled the replacement of my zd7000.

HP/Compaq :: NX5000 Boot Off CD-ROM

Jun 21, 2009

How in the heck do you make this dang thing boot off the CD-ROM?

It keeps wanting to load the operating system, regardless if the Windows XP cd is in there or not. I've tried pressing F12, F10, F1. Changing the boot options to load the "Multibay" first then the hard disk. It even pops up asking me what I want to boot from; multibay or hard disk. Choosing the multibay does nothing, it still loads the operating system regardless.

How do I make it boot the CD-ROM? I just need to get Windows XP Pro reinstalled on this thing.

HP/Compaq :: DV5 Doesn't Boot

Mar 8, 2010

I have a HP Pavilion DV5-1235dx(model) that I bought 1 year ago.

And 1 week ago its got out of order! Broked! Don't BOOT! I don't know why, but I tryed a lot of ways to do it! But doesn't work!

I have a medium knowlege of computers, but other people said me that can be the Motherboard! Really? I think that maybe the problem is other...

I'll explain what I did to try fix it. I'd took out the HD, and tryed turn it on in SATA/USB adapter. But my Desktop doesn't Recognized the Removable Disk! (The adapter is working I tested with other HD) I'd tryed boot without HD. I'd tryed to put other HD with Ubuntu that I have working.I'd tryed boot with WinCD (XP/VISTA/7). Didn't work either.My BIOS lists the CD-ROM Drive but didn't anyone of HDs that I installed then.

The START is ever the same. Doesn't matter what I do, the "HP Start BOOT Screen" load, enter in a black screen and doesn't load the OS.

HP/Compaq :: Presario Won't Boot

Dec 3, 2009

got a Presario V2000 that will not boot whatsoever.

Upon pressing the power button, the machine starts up and displays the standard "Windows could not start properly" screen. Every option I choose, from the three Safe mode options, to the Last Known Good Config, to Start Windows Normally will not work.

I choose an option and everything goes smoothly, the Windows XP splash screen pops up & stays there for a few seconds, then goes blanks for a slightly longer length of time before a blue screen pops up. I can't remember the first few numbers, but the rest I'm pretty sure is accurate:

(a series of letters/numbers is here) (Registry File Failure)

The registry cannot load the file
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt, (something I cant remember), or not writable

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical assistance.

.....and it pretty much repeats over and over in a continuous cycle like this until I power it off.

What I'm wondering is where exactly the problem lies? On the Hard Drive--where the drive itself needs to be replaced or the OS just wiped and reinstalled fresh.......or is this indicative of a hardware failure...which would mean this lappy is pretty much dead?

HP Compaq 6735s

I had some Malware and ran Avast to remove it. Once I was done with that I decided just to back some things up,and do a clean install.

I chose to boot from Optionla bay, I assume that is the CD/DVD drive, then put the XP disk in but nothing. It tries to boot and goes to the black screen with choices, like start in safe mode and a few others, none of them work.

I hit "esc" to just boot from HDD like normal and it still will not boot.

HP/Compaq :: HP DV5T Boot

Apr 7, 2009

I live in the northeast. Unexpectedly we got a snow storm and I left my laptop in my backpack in my car for 6 hours. I didn't realize how cold it was going to get. I got laptop just now and it won't boot. It reaches the HP screen, the hard drive looks at as if its going to boot and after about 3 light flashes, everything stops working.

I press F10 to get in bios, it doesn't go in, it just hangs. I press ESC to get to the start up menu, same thing.

What did I damage here? My hard drive, motherboard?

I have important files here I need for my accounting classes until the semester ends.

I removed the battery to just use my plug in outlet to see if battery was damaged, same thing occurs.
