  1. any ideas how to fix this?
  2. Did you try inserting the windows disk and setting it to boot from the optical drive?
  3. yes i did. and it says DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER. not what i prevously wrote
  4. It never flashed "Press any key to boot from dvd" or something like that? Do you have another optical drive you can try? Are you sure the DVD drive was set first in the boot order?

    This is an authentic/original microsoft windows disk, right - not a backup?
