Computer ask for boot disk everytime

  MKS 00:33 25 Oct 2005

After a complete rebuild, my PC (win XP pro)ask for boot disk everytime it restarts. I have made HD as firt boot in the BIOS and diabled 2nd and 3rd boot option. Still that made no difference. Still come with boot failure from CD rom. When I insert my win CD then it comes with 1, Hard disk 2, CD Rom. Can someone please tell me how to get round this.

Many Thanks

After a rebuild the porobability is it isn't detecting the hard drive in the BIOS.

Check - jumpers, cables, power connections, etc to the drive.

Does the POST show the drive as detected?

Thank you for your response. I can see the drive in the BIOS and during boot it's there as primary drive. I had another go this morning but it's still the same. Any other suggestion?

Many Thanks
