Early in the morning a co-worker asked for my presence and when I arrived to his Department (Economy) the complaint was his PC was not loading the Operating System (Windows in this case). When the PC was turned on the last screen shown was the following.

As you can see in the photo above, the HDD and the Optical Unit were recognized by the BIOS. Then I had a hunch:  I should enter to the BIOS and check it on.


The PC was restarted and pressing the key Del the BIOS could be accessed. The procedure was the following: Del → Boot → Boot Device Priority → Enter.

At this point the first option of the Boot was disabled; this was the reason of the complaint with this PC. Therefore it was needed to configure a boot device then, let’s see in the photo below how it was configured.

      Hi Waleed, this error was caused for the machine, it's an old model. I recognize it was first time I saw this. Have a good day

        if the bios settings gets automatically changed to default values,i would suggest to-
        1) replace the bios battery in the mobo.
        2)reseat the cables

    I'm a self confessed firmware fiend, and would have upgraded the BIOS, and am surprised that the OS could not be upgraded; I have moved XP machines to Windows 7 (Windows 8 can be harder).
