Hi,

I am not quite sure I follow you there!

When you power up the system you get an non system disk error but if you hit reset then it boots, is this correct?

Please explain your problem with more details!

Hi,

Try to fix the boot record by using Windows XP Recovery Console and use the FIXMBR and FIXBOOT commands at the prompt.

Hi,

Are you running an antivirus software that inoculates the boot sector and restores it if it is modified?

Hi,

Does it sound like the hard drive is spinning up when you get the error message?

Hi,

Have you verified that the ribbon cable and power cable is well attached to your hard drive and the motherboard?

Is your BIOS boot device order set to cdrom before hard drive and there is a CD in the drive that it fails to boot off of?

No cd in drive boot options set to hard drive and all cables have been verified more than once.
