    Booting problem, Error: Remove disk or any other media and press any key to restart

    Ok i dont know if this is correct place to drop this thread but i cant find a general discussion area to put this thread on so dropped it here..


    anyways ive created an ubuntu , bootable flash drive and i am trying to boot from it but i am getting an error:
    remove disk or any other media and press any key to restart

    my usb stick is fine as ive used it to boot on other computers as well and it worked fine,
    my boot order is set to
    1- usb
    2- hdd

    any sugg. on how to fix it?

    Well are u able to boot from ur CD ?? . I believe ur on Lenova ?? And u have formatted Ur entire hard disk recently ?? . Get a copy of Gpart and burn it on to a CD, nd try booting from that. Please put more info on the product ur using nd the recent activities u have done on it.

    Please specify the method by which you have created your bootable flash drive ?

    im using lenovo laptop with windows vista.
    i used unetbootin to create the flash drive.
    well i had ubuntu installed along with windows, this problem started after i removed ubuntu from my laptop.
    i havent tried booting from CD but i used same image to create a virtual machine so definately the iso image is fine.

    could this be a boot virus or some bios problem?

    So my assumptions were right , what u have done is, ur formatted ur entire hardrive and removed the system partition . What are system partitions and boot partitions? . Take a look at the above link and come back.

    Now what you have to do it, get a copy of G-parted Disk partition manager , burn it to a CD and boot form there [you will be able to boot]. After booting , you need to find an option that says create System Partition 'something similar'. Once ur done with that step your good to go .

    Thanx bro, i will definately try them out!
    and no, i didnt format my hard drive to remove ubuntu, i just deleted its partition and then used easybcd to write MBR and reclaimed the space!
