Non-system Disk Error
Posted on 2004-11-03
My system reports "Non-System Disk or disk error - replace and strike any key when ready". All attempts to Repair install XP Home fail before any options to accept license agreement with the following error:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer. PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED
If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.
