By theroncpt ·
I formatted my PC with windows Vista on it, reloading it with windows Vista.After installation was completed successfully and booting into windows, i removed the windows vista DVD from my ROM, and restarted it, but then it gave me a "system boot failure, pls. insert boot disk....." i inserted the windows CD and restarted, then it booted, i then saw the PC won't boot without the windows CD in ROM, i reformatted it about 10 times. with and IDE & SATA Drive, With Changing Cables, I switched the DVD Rom, unplugged the one hdd while using the other, deleted all partions and recreating them, and even tried installing windows XP but wit no luck, still the same error. I need help ASAP.

Seagate 250gig 16mb cache SATA & Western Digital 120gig IDE
Biostar TA770 Motherboard

change the boot order in the BIOS to boot from the HDD or SATA first.

Did it fix the issue?

If not, try scrubbing the drive. If it fails, the drives boot area may be corrupt.
