first of all put your HDD on Primary IDE as master and primary slave, make ur CDRW on Secondary IDE master and ur CD drive as secondary slave.reset ur BIOS from motherboard by shorting the jumper, then dont change anything in bios n try restarting ur system. let us know how much RAM do u have and how many slots of it.

Thanks all that is done, PC has 4 slots of 32, 32, 64, 64Mb ram.
I had an error on a setting in BIOS PC started working OK and has packed up again looking like HDD failure as it asks for boot disk.
(It's not actually my PC, I was helping a friend)
Thanx again anyway

Hi,

Check your hard drive parameters in the BIOS, are there any numbers under cyl, hd, sect. ? Try the auto-detect hard drive option to see if the system recognizes the hard drive, hopefully these are the settings that the drive was set to when partitioned and the system boots. If system still doesn't boot, let me know
