bootup fault

  Ozy 22:43 19 Nov 2005

I removed the processor out of my system,
to test another system.
I reinstalled it into my system.
Now everytime I bootup I get this.
Diskboot failure, insert system disk and press enter.
I do what it says and it bootsup.
I would like, not to have this happen.

You insert a system disk?

Check Bios - avanced settings - first boot device CD second HDD (with you XP on)

Do you mean you press enter or that you insert a system disk?

After checking what Fruit Bat /\0/\ says, you could repair the master boot record. - XP: Repair or fix master boot record using recovery console
