A few possibilties on this:
1. Check to make sure both the floppy and CD drive do not have any media in it.
2. This is a used computer and its hard drive was erased to protect old info from being seen. If this is true, you will need to get an operating cd disk (ie. windows XP, windows vista, etc) and boot up from that drive. Follow the instructions from there.
3. Hard drive has failed and needs to be replaced.

Toshiba portege 2000 windows xp invalid system disk.


When booting, try going to the Boot Menu by pressing F12 when you see the Toshiba logo so you can select your hard drive as your boot device. After doing so, if you still get an "Invalid System Disc" error, then your hard drive may be shot.
