Question about Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS Motherboard
Hi I have just built a system with the above m/board. Now I cannot boot from hard-drive. Recgonises hard drive in bios etc.. but will not boot into it - just says: 'DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISC AND PRESS ENTER' - when ENTER is pressed... boots into windows. I have reinstalled Windows XP.. will boot with cd in but not without it... Running with 1Gb memory stick, am using onboard sound and graphics to eliminate any conflicts... HELP... please. Lucylocket
If your system will boot with the install CD in place, but not without it, it sounds to me like your hard disk partition is simply not set as active.
Boot DOS, from a CD or floppy. You can get a dos boot disk or CD image from bootdisk.com.
Once DOS is up, run FDISK. Set your Windows partiton as active. Then to reboot.
I think you'll be fine.
