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.

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,

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!
