Press F1 to continue,F2 to enter the setup ultilty

I press F1 to continue and it works i am trying to get that to go AWAY
well 1st check bios to see if it's detecting the hhd, set it to auto-detect.

also, since it is a dell: be for-warned about faulty hhd's...from what i hear, and and some have falty power supply's too.

Get a BIOS update or new hard drive.

Well what I would suggest is that you go in your BIOS and instead of auto-detecting your hard drives, go to the hard drive section to detect them, and save those parameters.
Instead of auto-detecting your hard drives to get their parameters, they will already be there, so it should boot without do the hard drive search, they will already be identified.
