  • Disk boot failure please insert system disk

    I have recently took apart another computer and took out its CD-writer. I then took out my old cd rom (which is 2.86X) and finally decided to upgrade. While i was taking out my old cd-rom which is a CDR-2732 manufactured in 1995. I then took that out and put in the HP Cd-Writer Plus. While it was booting it created an error which is Disk boot failure please insert system disk. I then took it back out and put in my old one(the CDR-2732) and it booted up just fine. Im really frustrated since i built other computers before. My boot is Cdrom first HDD second and Floppy third. Im running a SOYO made motherboard which is a SKY7VEM-PRO. I have a AMD DURON 3D now processor at 850MHz. My operating system is Windows 98.

    Have you checked that the jumper on the replacement drive is set to the same as your old CD-ROM drive was?
