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

Disk boot failure.insert system disk. Message that appear a boot up


first of all check in your BIOS whether your motherboard is detecting your hard drive or not.
If yes try installing window.
If not it means your hard drive is not detected , Open the case and check hard drive data cable is connected properly or not, and hard drive is getting proper power supply.
you can try changing hard drive data cable and power connector from.

If still you are facing the same problem that means your hard drive gone bad.

I have a sony vaio pcv-L400 when I turn it on it says: disk boot failture, insert system disk what can I do I dont have the system disk


That message means that, for one reason or another, the computer can no longer see it's hard drive. The hard drive may have failed, or it might just not be firmly connected (especially if you recently moved the computer).

Backup for Sony vaio


Hi,

If you got the recovery disk along with the Vaio laptop, good enough.Insert the disk and reboot, follow instruction displayed on the screen to restore.

If you dont have a disk, can try this :--
Reboot and press F11 to try and enter the system recovery mode, if you can then you're good, simply follow the prompts to perform a system recovery.

Let me know the status please.

Thanks
