Trouble with system recovery, cant boot

  1. Hey ya'll... Ive been having issues with my computer lately. I have an HP media center m1170n, I created my recovery disks with cdr's. So I do my system recovery and everything and it goes good until I have to reboot. Then I get the message " "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key." I put my recovery cdr's in and the same message just keeps coming up. I can only boot up if I turn the comp off and then select "last known good config" from the set up... How do I fix this problem

    Does "last known good config" always prompt whenever you boot up your pc? If you really can't get into windows directly after boot up then try to reinstall windows xp and then select "R" for repair. All your files will be intact and it will solve your problem.
