    Disk boot failure is a hard drive failure not a cdrom problem. I did disconnect the CDROM to insure it was not locking up the bus. The hard drive is probably bad and would just like to try to copy the recovery data to another HD and run it to create the recovery DVD set as crankstart mentioned. I know I can order the DVDs but the customer is in a rush.

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

Disk Boot Failure


Any system can be recovered, although it depends on what is wrong.. this error can mean no info on the hard disk, or damaged hd...more than likely whoever had the computer erased it for data's sake...I would've...get an os and load it.

Disk boot failure


After making 100% sure you have no diskette or CD in any drives the conclusion may well be that the disk is ruined. You ay try to boot from a diskette or CD and see if you can access the disk then. (see www.ultimatebootcd.com for instructions to make a boot CD) "The ultimate boot CD" has a few tools that might help you out. Since you can't boot you must make it on a different computer, though. You may also try to insert the disk in a diffe rent computer to see if it can be booted there. Also make sure all cables are properly connected.
