DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER


The computer is having trouble finding the hard disk.
The problem could be a faulty hard disk or a faulty disk controller.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

My pc says"boot failure,insert boot diskette in A"


If XP was not installed on the HD from your computer then the computer won't boot from it. Reinstall it.
The system may not see your HD. As you boot, go to the boot menu and see if the HD is listed. - If it's not, see if the HD is well connected to the motherboard. - If it is then re install XP.

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

"boot failure insert system disk then press enter" my computer can't start normally


Windows is corrupted - you must reinstall it. If you have files that you can't afford to lose then boot from a Linux live-cd and copy them before reinstalling.

Can't boot up without a boot disk


Your computer has been configured to try to "boot" by loading the Operating System from a network-connected "boot-server". Since you're _NOT_ likely to have such a "boot-server" in your home-network, the error-messages that you get are what are _expected_ when your computer is _NOT_ connected via the Ethernet cable to a 'PXE' (Pre-Boot Execution Environment) boot-server.

Enter BIOS-setup, and disable the "boot from network" option.

I try to boot my computer from a windows 98 disc, but it won't lo


Hi matthewbugbe,

I think what that means is it does not recognize your hard drive. If you are trying to install Windows 98 you should format your drive first.

Regarding boot failure


If you can boot with a Windows 98 floppy boot disk, then do so, you need to run scandisk. It is also possible that your hard drive has failed, you can go into the bios and see if it is being recognized.

Can not boot


Check the CD for damage and clean the cd drive with a lens cleaner. This sounds like a software or cd drive issue not a hard drive issue. It could also be raid drivers that need to be reinstalled. But this is less likely.
