Hi, By brand new harddrive, I assume that its fresh and empty.
You need to install the Operating System (OS) in that harddrive.
You can do that my inserting the OS installation CD/ DVD into the drive before you bootup.
If you still get the error, get into the setup mode and change the boot sequence to boot from CD-ROM first.
Hope it helps :)

When I switch on my pc,it tells me disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter. I have XP proffessional sp3 but only have a xp home disk.


If your computer has just been formatted, your computer might require you to insert the boot CD

to be able to run it. You might hence get the error message Disk Boot Failure- Insert disk and

press enter displayed on the screen every time you will try to run it. This might be linked

to:

* 1. The boot options not correctly set in BIOS
* 2. A non bootable CD is found in your CD drive
* 3. You do not possess any bootable device
* 4. You have installed a new hard disk
* 5. The hard disk is not properly plugged
* 6. Your system files have been infected

Hello,

First you need to make sure that the CD drive is selected as the first boot device.

You can set that by going into BIOS setup by pressing Del/F2 during system startup OR during startup press F12 and select CD drive from the boot device selection menu.

Press Enter.

See if the system is able to start from the disc.


Thanks

Because you have a dual boot system, you have two 'C' drives, which in fact is a good idea if you get a system failure on the drive you are using, you can select the other and still view any files on the other drive through my computer.

f using XP, right click my computer, then properties, then click advanced tab, then startup and recovery listing click settings, at the top system startup, select the default operating system, then click EDIT button, then delete the value that points to the other hard drive more than likely listed as disc1, disk 0 will be the one you have connected as master boot hard drive
