First, ensure that the bios is reading the hard drive and that the hard drive is part of the boot sequence. If you have a known working drive and the drive is not been read by the bios, you will get the Disc Boot failure error because windows resides on the disc which the bios cannot access.
Secondly, if the bios is reading the disc then ensure that the disc is set as part of the boot sequence-preferably the item after DVD drive should be Hard Disc in the boot menu.
If both of these items are in correct order then you could have a bad boot sector on the drive. Run a C:Chkdsk. If no bad sectors are found try C:Fixmbr-ensure that the Windows installation disc is in the CD/DVD drive when running Fixmbr.
If that fails do a clean install of windows.

Good Luck

Check to make sure you don't have anything in your floppy drive. (3.5 drive or 5.25 if really old system).

If you can boot from bootable CD then probably your Hard Drive is not working and all other periferals are OK. If it is making clicking noises then the drive arm or the head is most likely shot and you need a new hard drive.

The one chance you do have is if your Hard Drive just needs to be made bootable again. Load up the XP cd as if you where to reinstall XP but instead goto the recovery console, type "fixmbr" at the command prompt once you have entered the XP logon, its very simple once you get there very well laid out.

Hope this helps. Best Regards,

SOURCE: disk boot failure insert system disk and press

When you encountered this kind of failure this is a HDD error, so check the HDD if it is properly connected. Use another IDE or SATA cable, use also the another SATA or IDE slot of your motherboard. No another way to fix it that is only the hard disk you need to check. Maybe the IDE or SATA cable is bad or the HDD itself. Good luck!

Key Disk for Toshiba laptops Some Toshiba notebooks allow to bypass BIOS by...


Key Disk for Toshiba laptops Some Toshiba notebooks allow to bypass BIOS by inserting a "key-disk" in the floppy disk drive while booting. To create a Toshiba Keydisk, take a 720Kb or 1.44Mb floppy disk, format it (if it's not formatted yet), then use a hex editor such as Hex Workshop to change the first fwe bytes of the second sector (the one after the boot sector) and set them to 4B 45 59 00 00 (note that the first three bytes are the ASCII for "KEY" :) followed by two zeroes). Once you have created the key disk put it into the notebook's drive and turn it on, then push the reset button and when asked for password, press Enter. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter. You'll enter the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password. .

How do u get to the repair your pc on the start up disk. My pc just went down one day with out warning it says registry corrupt or missing insert installation disk n restart your ps I insert the disk...


Mr. Randee, you need a bootable disc or should i say cd installer like windows xp professional. Turn on your computer and tap DEL key or F2 key, it will enter you to cmos/bios setup. When already in cmos/bios look for the bios features setup using arrow keys and when highlighted it press enter. Then look for the boot sequence and make the cd or dvdrom drive first boot by pressing - or + or pageup or pagedown to modify. When you already changed the boot sequence press F10 key to save the settings then press Y. While restarting insert the Microsoft CD installer and when ask you for press any key, press any key to boot or start booting from cd or dvdrom drive. Let the cd installer run and when the computer ask for enter, repair or skip press R for repair. Then it will load to repair setup, type 1 for c:\windows and press enter. Type fixboot and enter and press Y for yes after that type fixmbr and enter and press Y for yes then type exit. After that wait to restart your computer and eject the cd installer and the computer will automatically load to windows. Have a good day!

Disk boot faliure please insert disk and press enter


Sounds like your hard drive has failed and became corrupted or the boot sequence is causing this on the motherboard. I reccommend entering CMOS setup if you can and changing the boot sequence to putting the hard drive first and if that doesn't work insert a recovery disk in during the disk boot failure...please insert disk and press enter screen. Jus make sure to press enter after inserting the disk if that is done...and if that fails I suggest replacing your hard drive with a similar one of equal value and qualities.

Installation win xp in toshiba sattelite


ok my friend its not that easy but its always possible

fisrt just to know why u r unable to install xp because u have the HARD DISK SATA

and windows xp wont detect it because there are no definitions for SATA HDD.

so what should we do to fix this problem, you will know that by following these steps:

at the begining you need a floppy disk and floppy disk drive (i know thats not available in the new laptops, so u might need to buy one).

ok now we will need to download the SATA definitions from here:
http://www.4shared.com/file/37736514/7da1991f/raid138.html
and save it in the floppy disk (dont forget to unzip the file first).

now lets start the windows installation process (as usual).
u before you get to load the windows file there will be a prompt (in the buttom of the screen) asking you (press F6 if u need to install a third party...........) now press F6 quickly.
you will have a new screen with three options (S= specify, enter= continue or F3= exit).
now lets press S.
you will have a prompt asking you to (insert the labeled disk manufacturer ................).
lets insert the floppy disk now. and press enter
and when its asking you to select definition, select RAID driver.
and when its asking you about windows logo testing press yes.
and after finishing the definition process it will detect the HDD.
now continue installing windows as usual

enjoy XP (i know its a long story but its worth it :)

sure let me know what happened with u and for any other problems plz let me know

cheers

Windows problem


Put your Windows XP disk in, hopefully you're using XP. Then boot with the disk inserted.

It will say "Press any key to boot from CD" you press any key.

When that boots up, you'll press R to repair Windows. This will load the recovery console.

It will ask you to select your Windows installation, this should be "1" and then enter.

Type the command "fixmbr" without the quotes, then enter. Then "y" and enter.

Then the command "fixboot" and enter. Then "y" and enter.

Remove the disk.

Reboot.

This SHOULD fix your problem.
