Disk Boot Error Message
I have installed Vista Ultimate from a 5-CD set on an IBM workstation w/ dual
1GHZ P3 Xeon CPUs: no problem. Next to it is my IBM dual 2.8 P4 Xeon
workstation that I also installed Vista Ult. on from the 5 discs. If I
remove the #1 disk before shutting down, upon booting, after going through
the SCSI set-up, I get a "Disc Error: Press Alt+Ctl+Delete and reboot". If I
insert the disk before rebooting, it boots fine. If I do not, I get an
infinite Alt+Ctl+D sequence. Any idea why the disc MUST be in my DVD drive
and it will not boot from the SCSI hard drive? I am running 3- 73GB SCSI
hard drives: 1 w/ Win 2K Pro; 1 w/ XP Pro; and the 3rd w/ Vista Ult. Only
the Vista Ult. has this problem: each one is on a SEPARATE H.D. (no multiple
partitions to deal with).

Re: Disk Boot Error Message
Hi Thomas,

Usually this happens when the boot sector is corrupted, or is pointing to
the wrong location. What are you using as a boot manager, where is the \boot
folder located, and which drive is active?
