[HELP] A300 Desktop Stuck at Windows Boot Manager Page

2012-04-10, 18:31 PM

Hi Community,


I was trying to restore my desktop back to its orginal factory settings but through the process, it encountered an error and the system restarted. When the desktop is back on, the only page it offered was the 'Windows Boot Manager' page (As seen in the picture below). It says to insert the Windows Installation disc which not only do i not have, but also the A300 desktop does not have a disc/disk drive for me to insert any disc.


I have googled for any solutions but all of them require me to insert the disc which i clearly have no ways to do so.


How am i suppose to proceed from here to get my desktop working again?




Thank you in advance for any kind responses.

Hi lyl


The hard disk MBR seems to be corrupted


Kindly boot the desktop into BIOS by pressing F1 key and then press F9 to load default settings and after this press F10 to save and exit.


Check if the system works or recovery from hard disk runs, to run the recovery after the system power on press F2 key and check if the recovery works fine.


If the issue continues then you may need to contact the support center.

Hello lyl,


Is this problem resolved yet?  If not, I have some notes about alternate ways to boot repair media that may help.  It's no guarantee that this will fix the problem, but at least you can run the repair tool and try.
