Error Messages:



I have put togeather a computer for a friend and have a problem that has stumped me.
The mother board is an A7N8x-E Delux (latest BIOS), 512 meg ram 120 gig seagate.
AMD 3200+ processor
I can load and setup xp booting from the CD and everything seems ok
I get the error message when trying to boot from a hard disc "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" I have tried a number of hard drives of different makes and sizes with the same result. I can boot from CD or Floppy. I can setup XP on the hard drives and if I let the system boot from cd I can run XP.
all the disks I have are parallel ide and all are recognised by the BIOS and work with other systems.
I have chedked that there is a master boot record on the disk and that the partition sia set to active.
Disks formated with DOS on this setup will work in other computers.
I have run out of ideas and ask for any help.
( I am a computing officer at a university so I am used to problems but this one has stumped me. )

Many thanks

Hi F,
Go into the bios & check out the bootup order.It should be set to:
boot1-floppy
boot2-hdd
boot3-cd rom
This should be the order after installing windows.If need be,change it to this order & save changes before exiting the bios.
Take care.
