disk boot failure

ok what does it mean when your computer says disk boot failure?
i mean mi computer was until i unpluged ipod before it finished syncing , now every time i turn it on it says "disk boot failure". then it tells me put in system disk but i lost err some threw them away by mistake. so like what can i do?:suprised:
usually it means you have a floppy disk in your floppy drive. At least thats what it meant when mine told me that last weekend :p

if you have no usb, CD or floppy disks in drives you'll need to find your OS install disk and have it repair the boot files. Otherwise remove all removable/portable media (USB drives, CD's, DVD's, floppy disks, memory sticks, etc and try again.

just make sure the drive boot order has not been changed in the bios - that happens on one of my pcs if i leave a usb stick in there - tried to boot from that first

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
