My system will not boot up and displays this message.
boot from atapi cd-rom: disk boot failure,insert system disk and press enter.
I am a novice with computer and just starting to look deeper. I am thinking that it could be a boot virus so i looked at how to reboot. i was downloading from microsoft web site xp boot disk and it says to save to 6 floppy discs and then to load disc by disc. The problem is that this computer i am using now (untill mine is repaired) has no floppy drive. i am wanting to know if i write the boot disc to cd will i be able to boot from cd drive and if it is a virus what precautions i should take. My computer has f-secure at the moment but i left a disc in the drive so iam thinking you know. Also i have been playing with my bios setup changing start up drives so i need to ask what should start in what order.
Thank you for any help
