HP Envy TS 15-j152nr Recovery :: Convert Bootable Discs Made By Notebook To Bootable Usb

Oct 20, 2014

I have a HP touchsmart envy 15 and I am trying to restore computer to factory default. About 6 months ago, the computer said I could make a boot disc and be able to use that to restore my computer to factory and after I make the boot disc, I can delete the recovery partition as it will be stored on the disc. So I went ahead and make the disc (it turned out to be 4 discs) and the computer deleted the partition. Now I am here trying to use the discs to restore to factory, however, my optical drive isn't detected when the bios is booting. Because of this I need to turn those 4 discs into a bootable USB thumb drive. I have looked all over and there are many different ways of converting 1 disc into usb, but not 4.

HP/Compaq :: DV9535nr- BestBuy-made Recovery Discs And Crapware

Jan 13, 2009

I have a DV9535nr and I want to do a clean install to get rid of crapware. BestBuy furnished me a set of discs (at no cost unlike some I have read about) but will these contain the crap I want to eliminate? When I try to run the recovery disc feature and make my own from my hard drive it tells me a set has been made (yeah, yeah, ok ok MS/HP) so it looks like BestBuy beat me to it.

I ordered a set from HP to be on the safe(r) side but have read in this forum that these might not be such a good idea, either... bugs etc...

HP Envy 4-1050 Recovery :: Purchased Recovery Discs - Can't Load From External DVD

Oct 31, 2014

thru HP tech support tried to recover my notebook with no success. instructed to purchase recovery dvd's (they don't offer a usb flash option and I have no internal dvd). they told me to find an external drive so I purchased an HP. they told me to:
 
- restart my machine with dvd#1 in place and tap F9 to get to boot device order to USB CD/DVD ROM drive
- windows starts loading files
- I can hear the writer spinning up
- recieve an error "boot disc cannot be found", press any key to continue
- windows starts loading files and atempts to start
- restoration incomplete, hit retry
- cycle repeats
 
HP support said to tap any key as window tries to load - no luck
 
When I get to the HP Recovery Manager - I've tried System Recovery and Minimized Image recovery - same results
 
My question is - can my system load from the external DVD drive if it was never activated (ie drivers) thru windows? Can it be done outside of windows? Seems like it can't read from the disc
 
Can my recovery discs be copied/transferred to a USB flash drive to avoid the external drive completely?

Dell :: XPS M-1530: No Bootable Devices Found

Sep 4, 2009

My XPS m-1530 is running XP-Pro, clean-installed via instructions on this forum. It runs perfectly . . . except for one thing.

Every once in a while, especially in the middle of a lengthy download, everything stops and the screen goes right to this message: No bootable devices found.

Error Code 2000-0141. This used to happen very infrequently, but now it is more often and scary. I have removed and reseated the HD twice.

Acer :: [Timeline] How To Extract A Bootable Vista DVD

Aug 10, 2009

I have an Acer Timeline 4810TZ. With Windows XP you were (usually) able to just take the "i386" folder which most companies put on the laptop's drive and use that to produce a full bootable Windows XP CD that you could use to completely reformat the drive with the Windows license key that came with your laptop.

Is this possible with Vista? More specifically, is this possible with the way Acer sets up their laptop?

I know I can use their erecovery tools, but I'd rather setup my own partition structure.

I have already backed up all the files in the secret partition and do know how to recover it even if I delete the hidden partition so another option is to just delete it and then combine the partition with the other one and then repartition the drive. All this should be doable with gparted (or a bunch of other programs) and shouldn't harm my files, but it seems like a dumb roundabout way to go about it if I can produce a Vista DVD.

Dell Inspiron 15R :: No Bootable Device Found

Apr 8, 2013

I experienced my first BSOD today on my 5 month old Inspiron. I was a little concerned but figured it'd be find and just restart. However my laptop never restarted, instead I was greeted by 'no bootable device found. Press any key to restart'

Now I've browsed the Internet and taken a few steps, firstly I ran the diagnostics in the bios and it was saying my hard drive wasn't installed. Then I followed a guide on this forum. I changed the Sata from ACHI to Intel Smart Technology, however now I'm unable to get back into the boot settings and instead my laptop just stalls on the Dell boot up screen.

All this has literally happened out of nowhere today, I run my own business and I rely heavily on my laptop. I can't afford to lose any documents. I'm baffled how it can just malfunction out of nowhere.

Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 :: MSATA SSD As Bootable Drive

Jan 30, 2013

So, I desperately need the SSD speed. 

I know i can use the intesl caching stuff, but i dont want to!!

Intel® Smart Response Technology: This technology utilizes the speed advantage of SSD in caching where the frequently used information is stored on the SSD instead of the Hard drive.

Intel® Rapid Start Technology: This technology enables the system to boot back with-in seconds after getting into hibernation.

What i am looking to do is, put a 128GB mSATA SSD drive in the slot, fire windows into in and use this as my OS & APPS drive, (Drive C:), and then use the existing drive, the 1TB mechanical drive as the storage drive (Drive D:). 

The dell site, say i can not use an MSATA SSD to boot with...i see no reason why!?

Also, i cant find the spec of the mSATA...dont know whether its SATA 3 or SATA 2.

Dell Latitude D630 :: DVD / CD Not Found - No Bootable Devices

Feb 24, 2013

My previous Dell Latitude D630 went out of order (nvidia graphics) so I bought another d630 second hand without hard disk and introduced the "old" hard disk.

Everything works fine (installing drivers...) except the DVD/CD is not recognized at all:

- when in the BIOS, putting the boot sequence to: CD/DVD/CD-RW Drive

the Laptop says: No bootable devices... (It also says that, when I unplug the DVD/CD)

The DVD/CD itself does a short spinning movement when booting, so it seems to have "electricty".

I've upgraded the BIOS to A18 already;

When booting Windows, the drive is missing altogether (the hardware manager does not show it as an unregonized driver; instead the drive is missing altogether)

I understand the DVD, though introduced to the Laptop, is connected via USB - do I need some USB driver update or how can I fix this?

Is there a manual that would tell me how to check cabling or similar things? when I introduce the DVD from the old hardware - which was/is working, it is also not found in the "new" laptop, so I suppose the DVD hardware "connection" is missing??
