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.
If you bought your PC from HP Compaq give them a call and ask for replacement install media :)
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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
