      Operating system

    • C.

    C. Hard disk or Hard disk cable
    Explanation
    The error message "operating system not found" indicates a problem with the hard disk or hard disk cable. This means that the computer is unable to locate the operating system, which is usually stored on the hard disk. The issue could be due to a faulty or disconnected hard disk cable, preventing the computer from accessing the necessary files on the hard disk. Alternatively, the hard disk itself may be damaged or malfunctioning, causing the operating system to be inaccessible.

    The long beeps code while booting the system indicates a problem with the RAM. RAM (Random Access Memory) is a crucial component of a computer that stores data that is actively being used by the system. If there is an issue with the RAM, it can lead to booting problems and cause the system to be unresponsive or fail to start up properly. Therefore, the long beeps code suggests that the RAM needs to be checked or replaced to resolve the issue.

Therefore, converting NTFS to FAT32 would result in loss of these features and limitations on file size.
