thanks for that checked all those its not that it wont boot you just get the non system disk message and press any key when you do that it boots straight into windows.but this has just started before it just booted straight up.like i said not a disaster just annoying.darren

Have you got Acronis True Image installed?

pamy yes itried restore twice no joy. clint interesting you should say that ive just upgraded acronis and since i ran the boot cd i no longer get the press f 11 to boot to acronis option in the bios.you might have hit on something there ill try reinstalling acronis.

i deleted acronis secure zone and uninstalled it reebooted and its fine. must have been the bootable utilities disk that interfered with it.ill reinstall it tomorrow strange though ive never had any bother with acronis like i had with drive image. thanks darren
