I am trying to res erect a used H P, I got it with a bas power supply , replaced it & it started up.then I got a message that there was no operating system on the system. I purchased Windows 2000 Pro proceeded do do the install & got a notice that the system had no HARD DRIVE I cheeked & sure enough... so I replaced it with a used one, same results tried another , same results etc. I reset the BIOS to system defaults..

Now I have noticed that the first thing that flashes in the screen as I start it up is " COULDN't open the boot partition to check for a signature"
i AM SOMEWHAT NEW... & DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO GO NEXT...............................HELP
