Hard Disk Boot Failure - Help!
Hi, I went to a computer store to get all my wires connected and everything and the computer turned on fine and everything looked good till I put in my Windows XP Pro CD and I get this error message "HARD DISK BOOT FAILURE - INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.". I've tried putting the disk in both cd drives and the computer does not seem to respond.
I've called into the Computer store and they said to fix this it'll cost $60 and 2 hours and that seems like too much for a rather small problem so I would like quick help here before I go to see if I can fix the problem. I have an appointment at 2:30.
If it helps, here's the specs to me new computer:
