PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:xp home
Problem Application Name & Version:New hard drive
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Western Digital 80gb
Error Messages: System start up failed please insert system disk to boot system



I am installing a new 80gb wd hard drive. I can see that hard drive listed in the recognized hardware devices but when I put the Windows XP disk into the CR rom the system still won't boot up. Is this a problem with th cd rom ? ( I checked the XP disk and it works). Or is there something else I need to do? The old hard drive was toast so this will be the C: drive on the system.

Hello and Welcome to MyTechSupport.ca

You need to change the boot sequence in the BIOS to boot from the cd first. You can normally do this by tapping the DEL key or some machines use the F1 or F2 key.
