Ok, built a computer, it's all setup and working.. for the most part.
The BIOS detects the harddrive. HD is on IDE1 Master.. my DVD burner is an IDE2 Master.
I installed Windows XP, everything went fine as usual. The computer restarted and would not boot from the HD. This is the first time i've tried to boot from it, and it's not working.
The error I get is "Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter"
even if all I plug in is the HD, that's the same error I get. I can't get the computer to boot.
DVD Drive boots fine.
There is no floppy drive. (I can install one if needed to fix, I guess)
All the hardware is brand new.

Thanks for any help. I can provide any other information.
