Default Need help with an old HD

I have some older computer parts that I put together to make what would basically be a total mess around computer.

So, I boot up. And it says...

Verifying DPI files.....

Please remove disc and press any key to continue

this happens if I have a disc in or not and I have a copy of XP Pro but I cant get passed this damn error! If I press a key it will just say again

Please remove disc and press any key to continue

Pleeeeease help! I dont know what to do!

that could be your problem since it looks like it is trying to boot from optical drives and floppy.
