This morning i started to add in a few extra parts to and older P4
E.g: DVD burner, TV capture card and sound card.
Before I started to install everything i plugged it in and everything was starting up fine so i unplugged it and started to install the parts.
After everything was installed and all the connection in properly i plugged everything back in and booted it up.
The first few times everythig appeared to be working fine until it would get up to the windows loading screen where i would just watch the little blue bars move across the screen for 15 minutes get frustrated and turn it off and try again.
On about the 3rd or 4th time i was no longer getting to the point where it would start to load windows and simply came up with an error saying
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISC AND PRESS ENTER
Played around in the bios and changed boot sequences etc. to no luck. I have tried everthing i can think of and now i am out of ideas.
If anyone has any suggestions as to what may be causing this problem i would be most grateful
The system is:
Pentium 4 1.7ghz
MS XP professional
and im not sure about the motherboard brand or model.
Thanks in advance,
