I have tried Win 95 and Win ME, its the same result. I have also tried a different hard drive. Could it be something alredy in the computer. Bobby.

Make sure you haven't got a floppy in the drive.

No i meant a faulty bit of hardware or maybe even virus hiding someware.

IOS (Input/Output System) is another way of saying the BIOS cannot find a drive with an operating system on to hand over to.

When the machine boots up, the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), a chip on your motherboard, initialises control. Once its done its very limited but important job, it has to hand over control to an operating system.

If you have a floppy in the drive that is not a system disc, you will get this message, provided your machine is set to boot from the floppy first.
