Insignia D300a.

I was attempting to perform a system restore using the VPRMatrix/Insignia restore disk and ran into a massive problem. The system restore process went smoothly (so I thought) until it came time to reboot the computer. It will restart, come to the Windows XP splash screen, then an System Log error will pop-up telling me the <b>Windows Registry Failed to Update. System will shut down now. Contact the Manufacturer for solution.</b> I've tried reformatting but the BIOS seems to skip over "booting from disk" section and goes straight to the Splash Screen. My monitor goes into sleep mode, so I can never see whats going on before it gets to the splash screen. :tazz:

sounds like your harddrive is set prior to the CD in the boot order in bios

swap that.
