Missing Operating System

\015 Hi guys,\015\012\015\012My girlfriends laptop had this problems last year and we resolved it by reformatting the whole laptop... but problem is now, she doesnt want to lose anything on it (we'll only reformat it as a last resort)\015\012\015\012When it loads up, it shows the DELL boot up screen then right away it shows a black screen and on the top it says "Missing Operating System"\015\012\015\012I am able to go into the BIOS and have checked the boot order and everything seems fine there.... I think!\015\012\015\012I even checked online for other solutions but can't seem to find anything.\015\012\015\012Can anyone try and help with this issue before we actually wipe the whole thing and start from scratch?\015\012\015\012Thanks\015

Hi!
\015\012
\015\012Dont worrie M8, all files can be saved if the disk is ok
\015\012I suggest you run the installation again, but when it comes to reinstall or repaire you select "REPAIRE", then the os will try to repair your system and not reinstall it, that will keep all things on the disk. If that dosent work you have to remove the disk, connect it to another pc/laptop and move the files she dont want to loose. Then put the disk back and reinstall it from the begining.
\015\012If you dont know how to connect it to another pc or have the needed cables to do it, i sugest you take the disk to a pc-repaire shop and ask them to help you save the files. They will copy all the files you want and store them on a cd/dvd/memostick. They can even tace a copy of the whole disk if you want.

\015\012Good luck
