Greetings,

 

I have a Dell Costro 420 desktop computer operating under Windows Vista Business 32.  When I powered up this morning the boot process aborted and I got: "No boot device available.  Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart syetem and enter SETUP to config device."  I did this and pressed F2 "to run the setup utility."

 

The next screen was blue and entitled: "CMOS Setup Utility."  I tabbed down the left column to "Boot Configuration" and hit Boot Settings."  Three options displayed:

1st Boot Device   - [Removable Dev.]

2nd Boot Device  - [CD/DVD: PO-PLDS DVD]

3rd Boot Device   - [Hard Drive]

 

Boot Menu Security  [Disabled].  - this was in lighter text.

 

Being as I'm only semi computer literate - what do I do now?

 

Thanks,

shamrock838

Greetings,

 

Correction to my original post - I have a Dell Vostro - not a Costro - 420 desktop computer.

 

Thanks,

You must use the boot disk to get windows started.
