Disk boot failure with FC4

Hi all , I previosly used Windows XP but then I changed to Fedora Core 4.


After I install FC4 , error msg comes up saying , Disk boot failure, please enter bla bla .....

But after I enter Windows XP cd it starts normally. So everytime I want to login I have to enter windows xp cd into the cd rom.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem ? so that I dont have to enter windows XP cd everytime I turn on my computer ??

Thanks in advance.

do check your boot options settings in your BIOS. It might be possible that they are set to CDROM only, and as WinXP is bootable cd, it logs-in [how? idea ].
[though this suggestion is pretty vague and absurd, but sometimes we humans tend to make very very minute errors which we miss out.]

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
