    After upgrading my bios driver and restarting, I get the above message while booting up. I've tried to do a system restore and reset the bios and still get the system boot failure

    :confused: :(

    Take out the battery for a minute and try again?
    Bios will be set to defaults.

    Check bios for some reason the boot drive has changed by the bios flash and needs to be set back to 0 or 1, whatever you were using.

    Try a repair master boot record because you can't even startup.
