Hello,
I installed the WIndows 7 on an old PC with Processor AMD Sempron 2600 than everything is allright but when I turn on the computer there is the PRESS F1 to continue or del to enter setup so When I try to deactivate the A: Floppy from the bios The message goes away but this time Windows doesn't run.I get the error:
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER
When I activate the floppy I get windows back.Here is an internet point with a internet cafe software installed I need to open this pc without pushing the F1 task,but as I said before I get the disk bookt failure error.
Do you have any Idea how to fix this problem?
Thankyou!

Let me guess...it's a Dell. Make sure floppy is not enabled in the boot order in the bios. Also check "halt on" and change it to none. Good luck

Maybe is a dell but I didn't see there nothing written but the motherboard is micro star and the model msi7142
Yes I did that I checked it none but the problem is here when I check it to none I cant get the windows but only the error that I said before DISK BOOT FAILURE...
anyway thankyou for your response ;)

Thanks I resolved the problem by changing the Halt on option on bios to No Errors and I Activated the floppy so I don't have errors I get my Windows Seven back.
