: I recently purchased a Olivetti Echos P100D.

: I'm getting a message that says "Operating System Not found"

: WHAT DO I DO?


Suggest that you inspect the HDD with fdisk (use a bootable floppy disk with fdisk on it). If you can see the partitions with fdisk look for files in the partitions. If you can see partitions and files just set the partition with the OS ACTIVE and try again.

If no partitions or no files you will need to partition and format your HDD and install an operating system.

If you bought the system new and it was supposed to have an OS take it back. If you bought it used you may have some work to do - sometimes they remove the OS before selling.

Good Luck,
Henry
