SYSTEM INTERMITANTLY BOOTS INTO WINDOWS

By Casemaker ·
Hi,
I have a pc that boots into windows intermitantly. The bios is set to auto and will recognize the WD drive and boot into Windows 98. Other times it is not recognized in bios and does not boot, it gives an error "system boot disk not found, insert system disk" when it gives this error I run fdisk and get an error message "no fixed disk present. I have run Microscope and Tuff Test and the controller and HDD pass testing. I have run scandisk and defrag still the problem exists. I have removedcables and reset them, checked jumpers. I am ready to reload the os because I think it is corrupt. Any thoughts
Thanks

Thank You!
Thought I had coverered all the basics, guess not. The drive is not spinning during boot. The drive does not spin during boot so it does not matter wether bios recognizes it or not it wont boot. I learned a good basic troubleshooting tiphere, THANKS
