No CD Rom found / Boot error
« on: August 01, 2016, 14:32:41 PM »
Hello, I have windows 7 and couldn't get the cd-rom or usb to boot so I installed PLOP and then the "InstallToBootMenu" so after the restart I selected the CD-ROM where the .iso was and a red message saying "NO CD-ROM FOUND' appeared.

Then I access the USB which a had the .iso too and this messages appeared:

"Loading UHCI driver
Searching on HDSTS
Driver removed
Loading DHCI driver
Searching on HDSTS
Driver removed

BOOT ERROR
NO BOOT DEVICE FOUND, PLEASE RETRY IT"   in red

What can I do?

Hello,

a red message saying "NO CD-ROM FOUND' appeared.

I assume, you have a SATA drive. The old boot manager supports only IDE drives. Maybe, the IDE emulation in the bios settings will help.


Then I access the USB which a had the .iso too and this messages appeared:

"Loading UHCI driver
Searching on HDSTS
Driver removed
Loading DHCI driver
Searching on HDSTS
Driver removed

BOOT ERROR
NO BOOT DEVICE FOUND, PLEASE RETRY IT"   in red

What can I do?

At first, the USB drive must be bootable. Just copying the iso on it does not work. And second, as I see no drive in the log list, the USB driver will not work on your computer. But maybe the one of the other boot options will work to boot from the USB drive.

Best regards
