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

How do i install it without a cd


hi cool, are you asking weather how to install OS without CD or CD drive , if you want CD mean you can get it from local market lot of pirated version available in market, but its more best to buy licensed version to get full customer support.

IF you don't have CD drive mean you have another option USB memory card , but you have to make that USB memory card as bootable device for that you have to follow this steps

Download FreeDOS and make a bootable DOS USB Key.You have to used another system which have CD drive , put OS cd on that system copy the full OS on that CD to USB.

Now you can insert your USB to your laptop or pc and you can start to Install OS, but make sure you have to you have to select bootable device as USB drive.

Good luck ! if you think your problem solved don't forget to rate

Ignoring the suspicion that any "downloaded" image of Windows 7 probably is a "bootleg" copy of copyrighted software ......................

Restart your computer, and immediately press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP mode.
Reconfigure your "boot devices" to make the CD/DVD reader the *FIRST* bootable device.
Save the updated configuration, and reboot with the disk inserted into the reader.

Or, try the disk on another computer.

UNABLE TO BOOT FROM WINDOWS XP


First Make sure your cd/dvd rom detected in bios.
For that First open cpu cabinet refix power cable and ide cable to harddisk.
Then check your bootable recovery disk and cd/dvd rom working fine.
When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios .
Then go to boot option and set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then it boot with disk .
If still not boot then there may be some issue with cd/dvd rom or bootable disk.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Unable to install XP in CQ60-104tu compaq Presario


You may find that if you insert a blank CD instead of DVD you have more luck (the image you have created is a CD image not a DVD image). Another tip is that you should not copy the ISO image to CD but using Nero burn image to disk. Let me know if you need more help.
