    New computer asking for operating system to be installed.


    I bout a new desktop in october 2019 - it didn’t seem to come with operating disc. Anyway, i just recently started using this computer. I was moving some files i had put on it, when i came back it was black with a screen telling me to install my operating system. Is there a way to fix this? Is it possible to save/access the rest of the files i was transferring?

    :)

  2. Dell working on more computers without an operating system pre-installed

    Thanks to recent letters to Dell, we may soon be seeing Dell computers (mainly laptops) without an operating system installed. This has several benefits. The cost of the machine is lowered, because a Microsoft operating system costs a considerable sum of money. The customer also has an option to configure their operating system however they want, be it from Microsoft or a *nix distribution. They also do not have to deal with the large amount of generally unwanted pre-installed software.

  4. New computer asking for operating system to be installed.

    Error: "An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system"

    Hi Stephen,

    I realize the inconvenience you are facing in accessing the operating system. Now that you have me with you let me take care of this.

    Do let us know if you are able to see Windows 7/ Windows 10 operating system while rebooting the device?

    As you are unable to boot the operating system, this issue might have occurred when the boot files are missing or corrupted.

    I suggest you re-built the boot rec by following the below commands and check if it helps.
    You will have to use Windows 10/7 installation media to follow the steps to boot into Recovery Environment and try to rebuild BCD.

    Step 1: I suggest you to create an installation media for
    operating system using the media creation tool

    If system boots to Windows 10:
    Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool


    If system boots to Windows 7: Download Windows 7 Disc Images (ISO Files)

    Step 2: After preparing the installation media, insert it hard reboot the device and follow the below:

    • Boot into Windows Recovery Environment using the Windows 10/7 installation media.
    • Click on Repair your computer.
    • Click on Troubleshoot and in the Advanced options.
    • Select Command Prompt. Type the following commands into the prompt and press Enter key after each command.
    • bootrec /fixmbr

    • bootrec /fixboot

    • bootrec /scanos

    • bootrec /rebuildbcd
    5. Restart the computer.

    NOTE: Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting
    from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of booting the operating system for further assistance.

    Thank you.
