Just wiped my hard drive clean and am trying to reinstall OS but get a Disk Boot failure, insert system disk and press enter. When i add the cd it just repeats Disk Boot failure, insert system disk and press enter. Have wiped my hard drive before and haven't had this problem. The boot order is correct in the BIOS and i havent touched any cables.

Please could somebody help?

Many many many thanks in advance!

Just to check simple things (yes they may seem stupid). The boot order has the CD drive first and no floppies in a floppy drive. You are using an original Windows install CD.

If above OK, try cleaning the CD and try again.
