If you can boot with a Windows 98 floppy boot disk, then do so, you need to run scandisk. It is also possible that your hard drive has failed, you can go into the bios and see if it is being recognized.

DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER


The computer is having trouble finding the hard disk.
The problem could be a faulty hard disk or a faulty disk controller.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Whenever i turn my acer aspire one series on it say no boot disk insert boot disk and press any key


Enter BIOS menu and ensure your Boot Priority has your hard drive as the main Drive (Once you turn your computer on there should be instructions on the bottom of the screen on what to push to enter your BIOS). Also try removing any removable media (Thumb Drive, CD's or USB related devices) before starting your computer.

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

"boot failure insert system disk then press enter" my computer can't start normally


Windows is corrupted - you must reinstall it. If you have files that you can't afford to lose then boot from a Linux live-cd and copy them before reinstalling.

Hello,

First you need to make sure that the CD drive is selected as the first boot device.

You can set that by going into BIOS setup by pressing Del/F2 during system startup OR during startup press F12 and select CD drive from the boot device selection menu.

Press Enter.

See if the system is able to start from the disc.


Thanks

2 hard disks


Because you have a dual boot system, you have two 'C' drives, which in fact is a good idea if you get a system failure on the drive you are using, you can select the other and still view any files on the other drive through my computer.

f using XP, right click my computer, then properties, then click advanced tab, then startup and recovery listing click settings, at the top system startup, select the default operating system, then click EDIT button, then delete the value that points to the other hard drive more than likely listed as disc1, disk 0 will be the one you have connected as master boot hard drive

DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER


Your hard drive is not being recognised by your computer, so therefore it will not try to boot from it.

The PXE message you can ignore, it's the computer trying ot boot from the network card (because it can't find the hard drive)

You didn't memntion if this is a desktop or a laptop so..

Dektop:
  1. Remove the power cable
  2. Remove the side panel to the case
  3. Unplug the hard drive connectors - There are 2 types in a desktop, IDE has a power cable with a big white plug on it 4 wires, and an IDE cable, flat and wide.
  4. Plug them back in, they willonly go one way then check the other end of the IDE cable
  5. Attach the power cord and try again (leave the side panel off for now)
SATA:
2 smaller connectors One thin cable (can be any colour but normally red) and one power cable with a thin black connector.Just give these a push back towards the drive to make sure they are secure, do not remove them.

Try to start and see what happens.

It is possible that your hard drive has failed, though they normally start to cause problems before they go.

Laptop
These can be anywhere in laptops, but normally under one side you will find a panel that when opened will reveal the hard drive. Dell laptops normally put them in the side of the laptop and there is an access panel to be removed there as well.

If you have a laptop, then post back the model number togive a clearer idea of where it will be before you pull the whole thing apart =)

Try that and see what happens. Post back results please.
