Question about Mach Speed (MSNV-939) Motherboard
Hey, FixYa :) I have recently upgraded my computer with MachSpeed MSNV-939 motherboard and AMD 3800+ Dual Core CPU and a brand new fan hoping to bump up the performance significantly...I had a dual-boot Windows XP and Linux Fedora environments - both were booting up OK Before upgrdae... Now, AFTER upgrade I was consistently getting and boot error message right after "Updating DMI pool data..." booter message - DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER... when I am doing that - it boots up newly installed Windows XP and things seem to work OK - all disks (C: and other logical drives) are visible to File Explorer and other apps ... I even ran utilities like FIXMBR and FIXBOOTSECT - but after that the **** Boot loader still gives me the message above. Any ideas what to do BESDIDES "buy new harddrive" - mine is just 2 years old and was working PERFECTLY before the upgrade. Many thanks in advance! ++DAN

I and many of my customers had the same problem but it is easily resolved. Change the hardrive boot order in BIOS (you may need to llok hard to find this). This will fix the problem guaranteed

I have a similar problem (June 2008) when I assembled a new computer, took the hard disk from my old computer and installed it in the new one. "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER". The hard disk ran Windows 2000 Professional.
Currently the "solution" is to actually boot the computer up with the Windows 2000 CD-ROM in the drive. It seems to spin up the CD-ROM for a few seconds and then boot from the hard disk as normal. I've seen the suggestions to reinstall the OS but I don't want all my registry entries nuked, etc. I'm eventually going to install XP or Vista on a new hard disk and start over. :-\

The reason is because you need to reinstall both os because there still having the information from the old mb and cpu.

I ran into the same problem ... i have two sata drive and when i upgraded my machine i mixed the sata connector onto the motherboard... so just be sure your main hard drive is on the sata1 connector... anyway it's just a suggestion :)

You can run a disk manager for your drive however, I'll bet you will find its windows boot.ini. It may read just fine for a dual boot system but think about this. Windows can get confused real quick. I'm talking about the regestry. Take the time and do a fresh install of your Linuex and than re-install windows "clean install". I'll bet everything works out just fine. When 1 changes MB's there is a whole list of new drivers PCI devices loading into windows. Your system will run better with one copy of drivers for your new board and windows will not carry a list of old drivers and PCI devices of your old board.
