non-system disk or dis error msg on KNOWN good drives?Locked
I got an HP D530 Small Form Factor (SFF) off eBay – (no memory or HDD but with CD-Rom & floppy) so it’s suspect but I thought I’d put this question out before I $$$ on a new mother board.
I’ve swapped in known good Memory, CD & DVD drives & cables, trying to boot a known good boot disk. Swapped cables, set the jumpers to Cable Select, Master, slave and removed it all-together. Tried booting off a good HD (but from another model) tried booting from Floppy Drive with known bootable disks?
I constantly get “Non-system disk or disk error” I’m suspecting the disk controller chips got fried? So I have to replace the complete MotherBoard? – Anybody have any further suggestions before I have to shell out additional cash?
– thanks to you all!
