Just put together a new system. Powered up and is recognizing all drives (CD, DVD, HDD). Bios screen comes up and initialization is ok. It then ask for system disk in drive. I put it in the CD drive and continually get the Disk Boot Failure error message. Changed the Boot sequence to CD-ROM, HDD and disabled Floppy with no luck. Checked CD Drive in seperate computer and it read fine. Also checked IDE cable in different computer with no problems.
I am now unsure how to proceed. Is there something else I can try?
Is there a way to eliminate other possible causes?
Is it HDD?
IDE cable on CD-Rom only. HDD is Sata. Each drive has it's own cable. Had Rom drive jumper set to master, then switched to cable select. No luck.
I also have no internal speaker on the board or case to listen to possible error codes.
As far Bios once I switched the boot sequence I am unable to get back to it. It immediatley goes to boot from the CD and the error message starts.
Also I have no Floppy drive.
Thanks for the suggestions and help. Will let you know how I make out.
In case I'm not clear, what I am attempting to do is install the operating system and that is the Disk I'm attempting to boot to. It's XP SP2. This is only my second build so maybe I'm missing something.
