Disk Boot Error, insert system disk
I have been going out of my mind with this problem now for the past 2 weeks and dont seem to find a way around it.
In summary i had Windows XP installed on a Raid array stripe 0 on one partition, and nothing installed on the 2nd partition, so installed vista 32 bit on the 2nd partition.
This would boot up fine just giving me the option screen to choose which boot i wanted.
I then formatted my windows xp partition as it needed cleaning out, and then i found my pc would not boot up giving up "Disk Boot Failure please insert system disk and press enter."
I reinstalled windows xp on that same 1st partition, but still the same problem.
And now i find i can only get into my operating system if i boot from the vista cd ... not pressing any key and then i get a choice of operating system boots option screen.
I cannot carry on though having to rely on booting from my cd.
So as it stands i wonder what i can do, to get this system to just give me the operating system boot choice menu without having to boot from the cd.
One other thing to note is when i installed windows xp on my raid array partition again i did have another sata hard drive with a windows install connected to my motherboard. As i installed one on my seperate sata drive initially when i couldnt get anywhere previously.
Please help me sort this out. or ask any further questions relating to this so you can help me sort it out. thanks. Any suggestions on what i can try to fix this?
