I'm running Windows Me and am getting the error message "Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter" at start up. I've done that but the error persists. I can boot up using Ctrl+Alt+Del.I've tried the solutions already posted but none have worked.I've tried system restore but none of the restore points are functioning.I've used a back up copy of the registry using scanreg/restore but that hasn't worked.What can I do to get System Restoreto start working again and my computer to boot up first time at switch on?Thanks
When you get started, create a backup of your files and try a reinstall of windows. Do you have a cd burner or other large removable storage format? Can you post a link to the previous solutions that you have tried please?
DiodorusThanks for the fast response. Windows was packaged with my computer. I've tried using the recovery disk without success.
Just a thought as I have not used ME for a long time, you have not got a floppy left in the drive when you boot up by any chance.
Have you tried to fix the master boot record by booting with a floppy from, say, click here and at the A:\ prompt typefdisk /mbr
alan227,diodorus siculusThanks for the replies. Just back from holiday so only read them now.Alan, no, I didn't have a floppy in the A Drive.Diodorus, downloaded a boot disk from your link and will use it later.
