    Hey well basically i just download Windows XP SP2 when i had SP1 Orgiinally installed and when i installed SP2 this is when the problem started to occur so i reformated it back to SP1 and now everytime i boot up it always needs the "WINDOWS XP CD" to boot up.

    Before it loads to the login place it has a black screen and says

    VERYFIY DMI POOL DATA
    BOOT FROM CD
    DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

    I press enter without a cd it dosnt load up just keeps asking the question.
    then i put my windows xp cd and it loads up to normal i want it to load up from my harddrive like usual its gets real annoying if you need your cd all the time.

    I even went to bios and try changing the boot up to hardrive first then CDROM then floppy i even try taking the cdrom bootup off and the problem still occurs .. =/

    I CURRENTLY HAVE 2 HARDDRIVES INSTALLED

    20GB MASTER - WINDOWS XP IS ON THAT ONE
    40GB SLAVE - My Old Data Before i reformated to SP2 THEN BACK TO SP1

    HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPREACTIATED THANK YOU =DD
