    Boot Problems

    Locked

    I was trying to upgrade my pc from win 98 to win xp, and all of a sudden I get an Error message: DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER, so what must I do?

      Is the hard drive spinning?
      Can the PC Bios recognize the drive?

      At what part of the upgrade process did the error occur?

      Will the PC boot from the XP install CD?
      (you may need to change the boot order in the PC Bios setup)

      check the drives for non-boot media (floppy drive, cd drive, etc.) this is a common problem.
      If not, then your HDD may be going out, run chkdsk and set to fix.
