I was playing a computer Game(FATE: Undiscovered Realms) when it froze my computer up, so I did a warm start reboot. The error message "Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter" came up. I boot from my C: drive where I installed XP onto the drive. How do I correct this. I have the OEM XP SP1 OS Disk.

Follow the steps using your XP disc.

Looks like some filesystem corruption to me.

Thank You Edge2022, That was the perfect fix to my missing system files. I can now boot XP off of my C: again.
