  1. Hi all. When I boot I get boot disk error, I put in the windows disk and it tries to install os all over. I tried the fix, it did nothing, I reinstalled the os, I formatted and reinstalled os, still when I boot I get boot disk error. What is the problem?

    What exactly is the boot disk error are there any codes that come with it? When does it come up (before or after windows starts to load)?

    Reset your CMOS (Bios) and then try another hard drive. Since you reinstalled and formatted many times, there's not much else to do now except what I said above
