My PC wont reboot, the message is DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISKAND PRESS ENTER.

This COMPAQ PRESSARIO SR1000Z did not come with a restart disk-Is there some solution?

Thanks

When you got the computer it came with an installation CD, a Recovery partition or a Recovery CD/DVD, right? And, if a Recovery partition you created a Recovery CD or DVD, right?

So, you can try the CD or DVD that you have, or see if you can purchase Recovery disk(s), or borrow an appropriate (OEM, Home or Pro or Media Center) installation CD.

I had assumed that you could no longer boot to your Recovery partition. :( Glad you figured it out on your own. :)
