Hi,
there are many chances of HDD boot sector gone dam.

boot your computer using another HDD and make your old HDD as a slave disk; if the old HDD is serched as a slave thats mean your HDD is fine.

for any question ask me.
Thanks for your question

make sure all leads that are attached to your cd/dvd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click you will have options to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver or uninstall then reinstall if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)

The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?
IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?

Master/Slave designation is determined by jumpers on IDE drives. Most drives have adequate markings on them to identify these jumper positions. If not marked clearly, you will need the manufacturer's data to determine that designation.
If you are curious about a working system just power-up in set-up mode (usually by depressing (f1-or-f2) during boot-up sequence, your system-bios will display this information for you.

Sir, your PC might have been checking for external devices which plugged in to boot from. Thats wrong. So get into the bios of your computer while startup and change the 1st boot device to your computer's hard disk. And its a bad idea, starting your computer with a usb device plugged in.

Hard disk problem


Better to check if your Hard Disk have a power. By knowing that it is working you have to go BIOS and see it there that it is recognize as Primary or Secondary Setup. Boot Failure have the options why it won't run from the hard drive. #1 Maybe its not detected in your PC or no power, check again inside your CPU if it is properly connect. #2 No windows or any system available. #3 If all of this are not then your Hard Drive are defective.
That's is my analysis on your problem. Hope this might help you to know what is that problem for.
Good luck!

Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter


The drive should be set with jumpers or cable select to be primary master. Some pc & drive combinations don't like cable select, others insist on it. Try both, one at a time.
