Preferred Solution: Memory stick -- insert last disk of multi-volume set?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Memory stick -- insert last disk of multi-volume set?

it could be that the zip file is part of a lot more files. they are usually broken up into smaller parts to upload, and you need all of them to decompress the file.

or the file didnt completly transfer onto the USB drive, or has become currupted/damaged.

Help! I have several months of work on a zip drive that I obviously did not copy properly. I need to recover the data on the stick and do not have access to my hard work on any computer anymore.

I hope someone can help me!

Thank you!

Please see screen shot of files on flash drive. All open with the exception of the one named SEGARI'S which is where my files are saved. Notice the size.....it seems something is in the folder?

When I plug my memory stick into the computer, a new drive appears as you would expect it to, but when I try and open this drive, it acts as if its a disk drive without a disk in, meaning I can't attempt a reformat of the memory stick or anything :S

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do to make my memory stick usable?
 

A:"Please Insert Disk"... On a memory stick drive?

Try starting disk management to see if the flash drive is visible and whether or not it is partitioned and formatted. If so, should look like Disk 3 in the attached snapshot ... if not you may need to partition although these drives normally come preformatted.

Whenever I am searching with the index I come across this message that says--- Please Insert The Multi-Volume set and Click Ok to continue (Compressed Zipped Folders).----
 
 
I've tried rebuilding the index and that doesn't work.
 
No I do not have a windows installation CD My vista came OEM.
 
I have tried everything I can think of. Can anyone help me?
 
I have a gateway DX4500 with 5 gigabytes of ram and an AMD Quad Core Processor.
 

A:Please insert multi-volume set to continue.

The index is looking through any zip file on your hard drive and if it sees a multivolume compressed file it will ask for the multivolume set. Do you use a zip utility like Winzip or are you using Vista's own built in zip compression?

Hey All,

I was downloading a driver from the Acer.com.au website, it was going incredibly slow (just another reason I wouldn't get an Acer) and then download stopped half-way through, probably just a connection dropout. Now when I browse to the folder on my USB key where it was originally going to go, it throws up an annoying message saying "Please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set and click OK to continue" - Even though the file has been erased from my USB drive, it still asks for the multi-volume set

Any Ideas?

Thanks!

A:Annyoying Message "Insert Last Disc/Multi-Volume Set"

Hi Rome,

Seems you have autoplay enabled. Not a big deal, but whenever you insert your usb drive it will try and read the contents of the files on it. You can temporarily disable autoplay by opening control panel and typing autoplay in the search box at the top right. Click on the line that says "Stop or start using autoplay for all media devices" The next window that opens will give you an option near the top left to stop autoplay. Clear that check box!

Next insert your usb drive and erase the offending files!!

That's it. Hope I helped

Hello,
I recently started getting multiple BSOD's.
I did the following:
Checked Disk and memory - both are ok
Disabled all start up programs except anti-virus.
Checked Device Manager - no problems
Windows 7 is updated

I am not sure what else to try. I've attached a log file.

I only use this computer to play a Hearts, Spider Solitare and to use Quicken. I don't use it for e-mail and I rarely use the internet.

Any suggestions?

A:Pros / Cons of Multi-boot, Multi-Disk Partition Scheme With SSD

To the best of my knowledge MBR will work just find for drives smaller than 2 TB.
Drives bigger than that need to be GPT.

A little info from Microsoft.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2581408





Quote:
In order for an operating system to fully support storage devices that have capacities that exceed 2 terabytes (2 TB, or 2 trillion bytes), the device must be initialized by using the GUID partition table (GPT) partitioning scheme. This scheme supports addressing of the full range of storage capacity. If the user intends to start the computer from one of these large disks, the system’s base firmware interface must use the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) and not BIOS.

A:Bios's ( Disk Boot Error Please Insert System Disk And Press Enter )

Simply put, the disk that you think that you are booting from, and the disk that you are booting from, are not the same. I did the same thing myself not too long ago. Pull out the other disks and install XP. Once it is working, then install the other hard drives. If you are sure that you are booting from the same drive on which XP is installed, then the disk is thrashed.
You said you took out a disk from another system and it booted fine. How about trying this? Take the disk out of your system that you think is the one with XP on it, and see if if it will boot the other machine?
This is no huge mystery. It can only be one of very few things.

A:Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk problem - Windows Vista

Two things:

1. Check your cable to your harddrive and from your harddrive to your motherboard and make sure it is securely attached.

2. If that isn't the problem then go into your BIOS and place your CD/DVD drive as First Bootable and see if you can now run that disk you made.

Repair MBR:

Boot From the Windows Install Disc
The first thing you?ll need to do is boot off the install disc, and then click through until you see the ?Repair your computer? link in the lower left-hand corner.
You?ll need to choose the correct installation of Windows and then click the Next button.
And then you?ll get to the System Recovery Options screen, where you can get to the Command Prompt.

Repairing the Master Boot Record:

If you want to restore the master boot record, you can simply type in the following command:

bootrec /fixmbr

You can also write a new boot sector onto the system partition with this command (which is often more useful):

bootrec /fixboot

And of course, if you just use bootrec /? you?ll be able to see all the options.

Help. I just built a new computer and I don't know what's going on. I keep getting the error: disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter

Here's my scoop:
-All new parts: IBM 30GB 7200rpm, P3 800EB, Aopen AX3S pro,128mb ram, 52x standard cd, standard floppy.
-Boot sequence = a,c
-I am trying to use a win98 boot disk (tried 2)
-followed my motherboard's instructions exactly
-CMOS and POST detect everything successfully

Everything checks out. What else is there? Could it be that my hard disk is dead???? A brand new Disk????

Thank you,

Hi i have a self built pentium 4 pc that wont boot.
When i turn it on there is a very long wait at the HP Invent screen (it is a ms 6577 ver 2.1 board) and when it finally gets to the black screen with the slashing dash in the top left hand corner it just flashes for around a minute before saying "DISK BOOT FAILURE.

I have managed to get it to boot once by going into the recovery tool on the XP disk and using "FIXBOOT" but that only worked once and it wont work any more. The specs of the pc are,

There is nothing to lose on this PC. Thanks in advance. Alex

Hi, I left my Pc on standby last night, there were no signs that the computer was broken in any way. I started it up by hitting one of the keyboard keys and it came up with a blue screen of death which I didn't take note of. After I restarted my pc and now it looks like it can't find the OS. I have tried to system restore but it won't let me. And I have also tried choosing a system image backup but it still won't let me. Any help will be highly appreciated.

A:Disk boot failure on startup, insert system disk and press enter

Hello Kyle!

What kind of boot drive do you have? What model is it? Is there another storage device in your PC?

Start your PC up and check if you see the boot drive in BIOS. If not, power down the PC, open it up change the cables and port, start up again.

Good luck!

Does "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" mean that there is no OS installed on the hard drive?

Hi, I've recently tried to install a new HDD (WD Black 1 TB) and a new vid card ATI Radeon HD 3850. When I try to boot and install XP I'm getting the msg Disk Boot Failure, insert system disk and press enter.

Before I was getting "PXE-E53: No Boot Filename Received." However I went into BIOS and disabled the OnChip LAN Controller and I'm now getting "Disk Boot failure, insert system disk and press enter."

When I check in BIOS it seems the HD and my CD Rom are both being detected (They both come up). My initial feeling is that my CDRom is failing, but could it also be that I've gotten a dead HD? If anyone can help me with the Disk Boot Failure problem I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

I'm trying to install a PC with Windows 7 threw USB (2.0). Therefore I've used Windows USB/DVD Tool.
To note, I've installed a NEW hard drive, the old one broke down due to it's age.

Now I'm getting the next message: DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK.

I've tried setting the boot sequence but none of that helped, I keep getting the same message.

Thanks in advance,

Momkay

A:Windows 7 Installation error DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK

Normally means that the hard drive is not detected. Check its connections, plugged securely into SATA1 port with no others attached, data and power cable securely attached.

Then enter BIOS setup by tapping the key given for that on the first screen. Is the hard drive registering anywhere there? It often will be represented by its Serial Number.

Reset BIOS to defaults, set SATA controller to AHCI, Save settings and Exit.

Download this liveCD and boot your computer with it. Very carefully check to see if the partition for your Windows 7 drive is deleted or corrupt etc. You can use this software to UNDELETE and fix some known problems.

Make sure your BIOS is set to boot first from floppy, then from CD and finally from HD.
Boot from the (bootable) Windows CD and have your SATA drivers (on the floppydisk) ready when asked for SCSI drivers etc. and to press F6.

Ive been googling a little and to speed it up ill try to give some info to rule some stuff out.
Ive checked the BIOS and set the boot sequence to 1. CD 2. HDD 3. non.
The System disk im using is Windows Vista Home Premium (not a copy).
There is no scratches on the CD.

So far i think that it might be that the CD drive is damage.

Disc boot failure, insert system disc and press enter

The problem is that i do not have a windows XP system disc or restore disc, they have been lost. I tried to boot into safe mode by pressing F8 and this does not work either.

Is it possible to use a recovery disc from another PC running XP and using this to try to reinstall windows ?

Or is it possible to simply use a windows XP CD which was supplied for another PC ?

If these two options are not possible any suggestions what i can do ?

Any help will be appreciated

That message usually means there is a cd in the rom or a floppy in the drive. Other times it means the hard drive is dead.

Ladies and Gentleman I will try to make this as detailed as possible I have previously spent a few years working in IT support Disk Boot Enter Press Disk System and Insert Failure, but never had such a hard problem to deal with which I was unable to fix I'm no longer in IT Support I do printing now It all started a Boot Disk Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter few weeks ago when I was editing my brother's wedding photos having just done a Windows Update In the middle of the editing process my PC just turned itself off No warning just went off At first I thought I had either a power or heat problem though I had recently replaced my power supply This PC is a self-build a few years back and apart from a previous problem with a badly RAIDed drive RAID not done by me but by someone who thought they knew what they were doing and obviously didn't it has all worked well I had cloned my first drive when it started to throw errors at me the clone was successful and everything ran happily for another two years until now After the sudden shut down the next time I turned it on it told me the boot device was inaccessible and gave me an error xc e - if I remember correctly After a day or so worth of testing I was finally able to establish that the problem was my MFT and MFTMirror had become corrupted - an unrecoverable issue At this point I made the decision to get the valuable files the wedding photos and a few other things off there and have saved them to another external drive - they are safe I figured my best way out of this was to clone the original drive I had - the one with the RAID problem - onto a new larger drive My new larger drive had a different sector size but I eventually found a bit of software which would clone drives with different sector sizes and amend the partition size to reflect the actual size of the drive When this new TB drive freshly cloned is connected to a functional Windows PC I can see everything on it I can access the files there are no problems it gives me no errors When I plug this into my Motherboard I get the quot BOOT DISK FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER quot message I have checked the basic things CMOS battery seems to be fine as it is retaining the correct date and time S M A R T has been switched off The boot order is set to HDD first The HDD is recognised by the BIOS I ran testdisk and repaired the MBR having experienced this issue while I was a tech This hasn't helped I now just get a prompt quot F quot I have inserted the system disk repair disk but upon trying to repair the disk it doesn't show a Windows partition therefore I cannot continue Having reviewed everything I've done I know some of it sounds a bit dumb and was probably a waste of my time but I had to try it in an attempt to retain some of the software on it which I no longer have the installation media for Does anyone think this might be repairable If so what are my next steps I intend to try pressing at the quot F quot prompt as some people have reported this as working because it should load from the st partition After this I'm at a loss as to what to do next Now I am beginning to resign myself to having to reinstall Windows completely I'm kinda cool with this now as I've had a couple of weeks to get used to it I'm over losing the software now If I cannot fix this is anyone able to tell me whether I can recover the Windows license key from my old drive as I do not have the OEM details anymore this was part of lots of stuff that was never given back to me during a divorce This has cost me enough already in money and time Any help would be very much appreciated

Is your old HD dead? What do its maker's HD Diagnostics say about it? It may only need a reinstall.

I assume you tried confirming the Partition Marked Active to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times . If so everything else that can be done is here for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

I wouldn't even attempt such a cloning with different sector sizes.

Much better to do one perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 (same for retail) and then save it as an image so you never have to do another. Everything you need to get and keep a perfect install is in the blue link.

You can Determine Product Key From Unbootable Hard Drive to read your old Product key off the HD while it's slaved to Windows. There is an alternative method given later in that same thread.

Hello,
After I got back my electricity from Hurricane Charlie. I turned on my secondary box and I got the "Pop-Fizz-Smoke" from my power supply. The mother board is an Asus CUSL2-C, Pentium 3 800 MHz, Windows XP Pro. So I just got a new power supply installed it. Everthing was going fine until my HDD was not getting auto-detected on boot up. I have an DVD-Rom on the secondary IDE channel and it was getting auto-detected. Well, I examined the mainboard to see if there was any burn or electrical marks on it front and back. I didnt see anything. I switched out IDE cables from my main box (works) and no go. The error that i am getting is "Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter." Could anyone help me with this problem? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank You, Deft

A:Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter.

Try clearing the CMOS and see if that lets you enter the bios setup menu to set it to defaults. Then, migrate to the Boot ARea of the bios (if you can get in to the bios) and make sure the boot order is set to:

CDRom - 1st
Floppy - 2nd (if any)
Hard Drive - 3rd (boot drive)

Then, migrate on down to the HARD DRIVE PRIORITY and set the drive you want to boot from as FIRST in this area.

Save and exit. Report back with findings.

I have recently ran into some serious trouble with my Western Digital Caviar GP 1 TB Hard drive. In order for anyone to help me you must be updated with everything I have tried and the circumstances surrounding it.

Two weeks ago I switched off my pc and also switched the power off as I was going on holidays.Nothing out of the ordinary happened. Now when I'm back, I turn on the computer and I get this error saying "DISK BOOT FAILURE."

I am running two Operatings Systems. XP on a WD 320GB and Windows 7 on the Caviar 1 TB. I decided to keep XP just in case, but also that HDD fails to start up. It's making a clicking noise and after a while it gives the same error (I have tried to boot from both drives independably).

I have tried almost every suggested solution to this problem (replaced battery, checked cables, checked BIOS where the 1st boot is the cd/dvd drive). I really do not want to reformat my hard drive (couldn't even do so as the sytem is not going any further than the error message). I have valuable pictures and memories that I need.

An important note. The hard drive is recognized in the Bios.

I have tried to swap out SATA Cables (both drives are SATA btw) I have swapped SATA slots. I have tried to run off of the CD, however when asking which OS to select none are present and therefore none of the repair programs fix anything.

I have also tried the Bootrec.exe commands and I get an "Element not found" error on 3/4 commands. the only one that works is the /FixMbr which says (command successful, or something to that effect).

I have created a livecd (or I think I have) GParted -- Live CD/USB/PXE/HD but it doesn't seem to work. When inerting the disk, straight away I am getting the error message. I have also downloaded the minitool partition manager but I'm not sure how to get this going on my pc. Should I save it on a USB and then reboot? I guess that won't work as the USB is not bootable?

Any help provided is appreciated!
Greetz,
Luursje

Any help is greatly appreciated .

Update: I was able to use mini tool partition manager and I can see the disk with its partitions(volumes). They're all set to "none" for status. I suppose this should be active? I have rebuild the MBR with this tool but I still can't load my Win 7. Setting my volume 1 to active gives me the following error message when rebooting: NTLDR is missing. Press alt+ctrl+del.
Anybody who knows how to proceed from here?

Hi luursje,

Welcome to Seven forums.

I understand you have done an extensive troubleshooting for this issue. However, I would still like to start with basics. Please check if there is CD inside the drive or a media card inside the card reader.

As you have left for holiday there is chance you might have left it. Both the drives giving the same issue is highly unlikely.

Run the diagnostics on the hard-drive one by one to check their integrity:

WD Support / Downloads / Select Product

Also, make sure that harddrive is set to first boot device under boot sequence in BIOS.

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

No it wont make a difference that the previous version was home and the new is Pro. what you need to do now is boot from the XP CD delete the existing partion create aa new one and format and install XP on it.

Try this:

Shut down all power to your PC by unplugging everything. Let it set for a minute or two, plug the power back in and try booting.

I am having problems with my desktop PC..
I have had a new hard drive installed around 6 months to a year ago (not exactly sure when) and never had problems with it in the beginning.
Now whenever i switch on the PC it takes longer than usual at the first black start up screen, then it takes me to the next black screen which reads:
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.
I decided to open up the PC casing and have a look inside, i unplugged the HDD and then replugged it in and switched the PC on. To my surprise, the PC was now working again and i thought i had fixed it. Although..
When on the computer, i randomly get a blue screen that comes up which reads:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware of software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer. Press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe mode.
Technical Information (a whole bunch of letters and numbers)
Beginning dump of physical memory.

So i restart and put in my Windows XP disc and press enter, it starts up with the blue screen for windows setup and loads my files. But then the next screen i see reads:

Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed on your computer.
Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.
Setup cannot continue. To quit setup, press F3.

So i press F3 which restarts the computer which then leads me once again to the black screen with the error message.

When my PC starts up i hit delete to enter SETUP. I enter Advanced BIOS Features and set my First Boot Device as HDD-0 which is Boot from First HDD. There is also the option to choose HDD-1,2 or 3, i've tried all of these but nothing solves the problem. My second boot device is CDROM, third is Floppy and so on.

So please if anybody could help me on this issue i would really appreciate it! I have a laptop but my sister desperately needs to use this PC to do school work, and also because she has work saved on it. I also have a whole heap of stuff saved on the HDD and was hoping i dont lose it all.

Thanks in advance
FrancescoClick to expand...
Just so we are clear, you only have one hard drive correct? The three most likely things starting from easiest to fix to worst are:

Bad hard drive cable. You didn't specify whether your drive was IDE or SATA. Regardless, try replacing the cable.

Bad hard drive. The only option here is a new one. However if you can install a new OS you may be able to access the files on the old hardrive once you get it up and running.

Bad motherboard. All you can do here is replace it. The advantage here is if you replace it with the exact same model you don't have to reinstall the OS. If not, you do.

The fact that you unplugged it and plugged it back in and it worked, leads me to believe you've got a bad cable.

A:Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter

ok.. that sounds like (most likely that is) that the floppy drive either died or connected teh wrong way around (they have a notch on the connector saying which way tehy go up/down but with floppy ones you may need to watch out that one of the pin holes is reversed i think).. or something is in one of those drives..

take em out and check for pin damage on the mobo and device as well as on the ide cables.

clear cmos so we can get it back to defaults and eliminate mobo, there is a variety of ways to do this, each dependant on what mobo you're using so just search this forum on how to reset the cmos.. and boot up.

then if that fails try this setup first, everything else disconected
1. with old ribbon type cable
psu+cpu+mobo+hdd+ram+vid/sound.

2. again with teh new round ones

if you can get windows loaded then proceed..

3. add the floppy but using the old ribbon

4. new cable "--"

if it is the floppy, double chek with hooking up another one that knows it works, any cable..

5. old + optical drive 1 etc. etc.. you get the pattern

sorry if i repeated anything you said before, but clearing the cmos may produce some sort of fix, and step by step elimination i can work with easyer

Can you access the master hard drive when jumpered as Slave and the other as master... or when you change the cable locations for cable select?
If you can, run the drive fitness test of the hard drive manufacturer. I suspect you will find a failed S.M.A.R.T. test, and probably other errors in the extended test... Particularly if it is a WD, Hitachi, or Maxtor drive.
If the drive is failing a "REPAIR" windows may work, but it will not last for long.

Im running windows xp sp2 and main drive is C... I'm pretty sure i have a D: too.

My questions are:

1) Can my files still be recovered and if so how?
2) How can i fix this problem?

Please and Thankyou

Are you sure you put it back as it was before, worth double checking
Check all other sata and power leads to make sure their pushed fully home

In bios can you see all devices HDDs and optical drives

Hey guys i would like to have help with this windows message: disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter.

I have went into the Bios and next hard drive it says none....does anyone have any idea on what i can do?

Thank you very much

A:Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk And Press Enter

If your system is a desktop, take the side off the case and check the connections to the hard disk, and the connection from the disk to the motherboard. It's amazing how often the connections come loose.

Another possibility-the cables need to be replaced.

It's also possible that your hard drive has died and needs to be replaced.

In BIOS, is it set to automatically detect the hard drive? If not, change it to auto. Make sure to save the change.
While in BIOS, check the boot order. There are two schools of thought here-set your cd drive as first boot device, the hard drive as second. The theory is that you'll be able to boot from a cd if the need arises. The other side says to set your hard drive as the first boot device.

The CMOS battery on the motherboard may need to be replaced. Weird things can happen when the battery dies. And this is the cheapest thing to replace-it's worth a shot.

Hello,

I have a damaged hard drive (WD 250GB) that I pulled from my external enclosure.
I'm trying to do data recovery on it, so i connected it to the slave IDE cable (middle one right?).

Now when I start up my PC, it gives me that error message, but my Primary boot disk (Seagate 80GB) works fine when th Slave isn't plugged in. (I'm guessing it's a BIOS or a jumper setting that's telling it to look at the Slave as the Boot disk???)

I thought I had the BIOS configured correctly to the best of my ability, but now it's beyond me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter

Put the drive into a powered USB enclosure. It must have its own power adapter. You have a good chance of recovery there.
If you must put it inside a case, you must change the jumpers, assuming you are using PATA or EIDE. The main drive to which you are copying, must be jumpered as Master, and the failed drive must be jumpered as slave. USE EIDE 80 conductor 40 connector cables.
You will not have good luck depending on the EIDE cable alone, or while using Cable Select. That puts you at risk of losing even more data.
Once you start this recovery, do not stop until done, as it is possible the drive will never again power up, depending on its condition. Keep that drive spinning.

Once your drives are properly jumpered, you should have good luck in your data rescue, as long as the bearings are not failing. The other main cause of trouble is the magnetic media bubbling up and pealing off. That usually starts at the outer edge. The centrifugal force of the drive plates will cause the bubbled parts to be destroyed and blow off due to the force of the rapdily moving air.

Hello,

I built up a new PC and when trying to install Win XP SP2 I got the following error after the first restart:

Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter.

=the computer is unable to boot from the HDD and thus the win installation cannot continue

the disk is an older model 80gb Seagate (IDE) but it's brand new (hasn't been used before)

bios detects the disk fine, as IDE channel 4 master

the disk is set up as the primary boot device (2nd being CD-ROM)

the motherboard (Gigabyte GA-P35-S3G) has only one IDE channel (the CD-rom is SATA)

winxp setup detects the disc fine, partitions it, formats the partition with NTFS and also copies setup files on it...but is unable to boot from it

Does anyone have an idea what could be wrong?

Thanks in advance

A:Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter

hello & welcome to TSF,

what is happening is that your system is telling you that some thing has happened and you need to put your (windows XP cd) in so that it can repair itself !!

this will need to be a cd that look like the pic that i included with this response

but it will have to be the same version that is on your system as in

Windows XP Home ED sp2 ( sp2 if installed
Windows Xp Professional sp2 (sp2 if installed

if you do not have one you can barrow one from a friend / family member / co-worker as long as it is the same version on your system

A:Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter

Buy a new drive or return it under warranty. The drive is a lost cause... it's trashed.



"now my hard drive is making clicking noises."Click to expand...

That's the head clicking as it seeks back and forth, which is commonly referred to as the "Click of Death". Basically, that is the drive attempting to read over and over, but being unable to. There is no way to repair it. Freezing it in a ziploc bag might get you 20 minutes or so, but since you formatted it, I'm assuming there is no data to recover.

Ok here's what I was doing. I was replacing my dad's crappy 300w power supply in exchange for a better 450w one in preparation for the arrival of a new processor, amd6000, and a new graphics card, radeon 3870. Except now, no matter which power supply I have in it says, "Disk boot failure. Insert system disk and press enter." So what did I do? Did I kill the hard drive somehow? Every thing's plugged in, I think. Now I'm sitting here with a sparkly new graphics card and processor and nothing to do with them. What do I do now?

Current set up is some HP thing with 1gb of RAM, Windows XP, an amd 3800, an nVidia 7300gt, and a 160 gig HD.

there is this pentium 4 pc that i am working on. it is able to detect the hard drive but it tells me"DISK BOOT ERROR, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER". does it mean the hard drive is bad? how do i solve this problem
 

A:Disk boot error, insert system disk and press enter

Either the hard drive has failed, there is no OS on it, or the boot code is missing/corrupt.
You can test the drive with Seagate SeaTools for DOS, which runs from a CD in DOS. Download it by clicking "Downloads" on this page: http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

Now download and install IMGBurn from here: http://filehippo.com/download_imgburn/
Use IMGBurn to create a CD from the SeaTools ISO file, then boot the faulty PC from that CD.
SeaTools will eventually open. Select the hard drive to be tested and run the short test on it.
If it says "Failed", you need a new hard drive.

If it does not say "Failed", this time run the long test on it just to be sure it's okay.

If the drive passes the long test okay, you just need to install a (legal) copy of Windows on it.

If I try to boot up Windows 7 without the installation DVD inserted the computer will not boot despite the fact that this is the boot priority:
CD-ROM
Hard Disk

When the disc is in the CD drive, it still boots up off the hard disk regardless.

Windows 7 is installed on SATA 4, which is the first drive the computer is supposed to see according to the BIOS setup.

If I change the boot priority so that the Hard Disk comes first, it won't load the operating system and gives that error: boot disk failure insert system disk and press enter

I am stuck on this one. Any ideas?

It sounds like you may have a corrupted Windows 7 DVD.

Wipe the hard drive with Killdisk & then try to re-install Winsows 7.

- check the boot order in your bios
- try running repair with operating system CD
- with all the BSODs, you will either have to diagnose those or do a clean install.
- you could go to c:/windows/minidump -> zip your dmp files -> and upload to this site using the paperclip
