my computer has an asus a8n-sli premium motherboard, an amd 3000 athlon 64 venice, 2 512mb stix of GEIL value ram, a maxtor maxline 250 gb sata hard drive, a gigabyte geforce 6600 128mb video card, a nec dvd burner and a nec floppy drive. Allright so i get my new computer put together and the first thing i do is put my windows xp pro sp2 disk in and start installing my raid drivers then i install windows. it formats my hard drive, and it sets up. it goes super fast and then i log on for the first time. its so fast and fun. then i get installing drivers and utilties then it asks"please restart system so i click ok and it does. it loads up the windows xp loading screen then it freeazes. so i click my power button to restart it and it comes back on and says DISK BOOT FAILURE PLEASE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER(or something like that) anyway i reinstalled windows and started installing more stuff then it does the same thing. so then i start thinking maybe its my raid drivers. then i install windows without the raid drivers. it works allright , i start installing all drivers and utilities i need. i restart it runs good. so then i start putting in games. i put in far cry and it works great so i put in others and i was playing than quit then it blue screened. i restart my computer . it freezes on the windows xp load up sign again. so i power off and then it loads up and its saying "DISK BOOT FAILURE PLEASE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" again. so i dont know what to do can anyone help me.
