Disk Boot Failure, Insert system disk and press enter



Well I am just down to one issue with Vista 64. I can not boot
to any OS with out the Vista DVD in the drive. If I do not have it in it
will look at my CD roms and then I get this error message:

"Disk Boot Failure, Insert system disk and press enter"

I have to put in the disk and just reboot to get the OS menu
screen to
choose Vista or XP64. I do have vistaboot Pro and what I have I
have posted
below. CAn anyone help me fix this issue. Right now I have all
my hardware
working I am realy liking Vista.

Last week I installed Vista on the same HD as XP 64 and I had a
bad system crash. I had Nvida drivers kill it and some how even screwed up
my XP install. Both were taking 15+ min to boot up. they were on different
partions so I have no idea what happend. Vista is a beta so I back up
everything for just incase this happend.

So this weekend I cleaned both HD. When I did my install I did
XP 64 first and then Vista 64. XP 64 is on a IDE while Vista is on a SATA. I
am not sure if I have a BIO setting issue or a MS problem. It has been
driving me nuts.

Can anyone please help me on this?

Which disk drive is the BIOS set to boot from? Since it's failing, set
the BIOS to boot from the other disk.


Thanks that fixed it. I guess for Vista you must have IDE first in the
prority. I had my SATA first before and that worked fine with XP64.

Thanks for your help
