Default startup probs

i didnt know if this really goes here but, i just re-installed xp on my sis comp and now every time it loads up it needs the disk in the tray to even boot to windows. if the disk is not in the cd drive it will jus say boot failure please insert system disk. i already tried switching the boot order to hdd first and it still does it. any other suggestions

Doesn't need a floppy, you can make it an .ISO and use a cd, I have had problems like this before with an HP PC. I used PowerMax to write 0's to the drive, and then re-installed windows, worked fine.
