Hi, OK I have tried a couple of things already but am still getting this message when I turn my PC on "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER".
Basically I think my C: drive is gone 'kaput' but if possible I would like to save it. I have managed to get into DOS and have tried to run 'chkdsk' and 'scandisk' from there but I am not sure if I am typing the command correctly. Plus I am not sure if this is the correct thing to do.
I still have the original Recovery CD but am reluctant to wipe the C: drive if I can help it. My manual says I can run 'retten.exe', from my D: drive, which it says will be more recent so I won't have to re-install everything but again will need to wipe C: drive. (I also have a Recovery disk which I created a couple of years ago using Norton Anti-Virus.)
Is my diagnosis of the C: drive correct?
How recent is 'retten.exe' likely to be?
What should I have typed to run 'chkdsk' or 'scandisk' if this is the solution?
Is there anything else I should try?
If it comes to it, it will not be a complete disaster to wipe the C: drive cos I have backed up most stuff.
My operating system is Windows Me. (nearly 6 years old)
