I Need Help! Please!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so I restarted my computer, just hit windows logo and restart.
now I can't load my windows. the motherboard just doesn't detect windows in boot menu.

I reinstalled windows and I have full access to the drive.

when I try to force boot from bios it just says (please remove disks or other media)

is there any way to not reinstall windows and just keep the old os. I really don't wanna get into setting up my pc again

I'm very confused reading this:

  1. So you restarted your computer.
  2. Windows no longer boots.
  3. ...you spontaneously reinstall Windows and have access again?
  4. ...now you don't have access again...?
  5. Did you not just reinstall the OS? You already overwrote the old OS...

I installed windows on a different drive 

I have acces to the entire windows driver (the old one). 

Through a new instellation on a different drive. 

When i try to boot it only says:

Please remove discs or other media

Press any key to restart

Ok, so what you can try is connecting the question drive in another computer. If it gives you the same result your drive may be dying or the OS has somehow corrupted. (you can check for bad sectors in that case).

 

Are both disks now behaving this way or only the old one?

If my Linux knowledge translates to Windows, I think your boot loader broke. Boot into the installation media and try the repair option with your main drive connected, that should fix whatever happened, as long as the drive itself didn't die.


ur local linux fanboy, daily driver of kubuntu non-LTS (no compositing of course). graphical interfaces are for the weak, i am the weak

Yeah, sounds like a MBT issue to me, there are a few online utilities you can load onto a flash drive to use to attempt to reconstruct it. I had the same sort of issue when I cloned my old HD onto my new SSD.
