    recently both of my computers crashed with in days of each other. not thinking i never created system restore disks for either of them.

    i changed my HD completely in my desktop (an hp pavillion s3713w) but now i keep getting the following error disk boot failure, insert disk and press enter. i was initially going to install xp but recently found out the drivers will not be compatible so i again have started to search for a way to get the system restore disks (not an easy task) but once i get the disk i am afraid the error will still exist

    as for my laptop (a compaq prersario cq60-211dx) i have the same issue where i didnt create a restore system disk so i am lost there as well

    what puzzles me is that with my laptop it will turn on go to the system repair screen and then recycle and say it cant solve the error but never tell me what the error is.

    any suggestions on where i can get the system restore disks or what is going on with my computers?
