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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
