Weird problem ~Disk Boot Failure~

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
recently my pc would not boot to BIOS, so I moved the jumper to reset took my ram out, and took the cmos battery out and left it like that after night. And the next day it booted to bios and even windows. Then later in the day I turned it back on, and after BIOS it stated "Disk Boot Failure. Insert Disk and press enter". So I format my 80GB hardrive, and install Vista on it and leave my two 320GB alone for information that I need.

Everything works, and so I restarted the PC for the "just in case" in me and VOILA I get the message again. So I put the Vista cd in, and restarted and it booted to windows. WTH?

Can anybody help an OC out?

edit: Found the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Go to the boot order in your BIOS and make sure HDD is on the top of the list. If your mobo is booting from removable media first, that would explain why it would only boot when there is a bootable CD (aka removable media). Also check/replace the SATA cable on the HDD your trying to boot from, could be bad.
