How to Fix Disk Boot Failure

Below are important troubleshooting tips to try if the

2)    If the first tip doesn’t help, your MBR may be corrupted, and you need to do a system repair with a system disk, or this disk boot failure problem will always exist.

3)   Next ensure no CD/DVD or Floppy disks are inserted when attempting to boot. Unplug any connected USB storage devices. Make sure that there is no floppy disk, CD, DVD, Cameras, Phones and iPods connected to your computer. These devices have been known to cause this boot problem as well.

4)   Ensure that your system BIOS lists the hard drive as one of the boot devices. In addition, set the boot order in BIOS to allow the hard drive to become the first boot device.

5)    Ensure your hard drive is recognized during system post. If it is not, check your cables and connections.

If you have recently installed a new hard drive, CD/DVD drive, check the jumpers on the drives. In some cases, with older IDE cables, you cannot use the Master and Slave jumper settings and you must use Cable Select.
