Invalid system disk, replace the disk, and then press any key error

I don't have any CD's or DVD's in any disk drive and yet I get this error on boot-up. I don't put any CD's, etc. except for professionally made versions such as MS office installation disks. How can I get rid of this error?

Hi,

If you don't have any disk then also disbale them from the BIOS, we used to get this message for the floppy disk while we hadn't got any installed, so we had to disable the floppy from BIOS and error gone.

Hi again,
Is there a floppy disk or external storage devices plugged in?
If so remove them.

Bios option is a good point to :)

Could this have something to do with the bios configuration?

Hi,

As I told you in the first post make sure that all devices which you don't use are disabled under system BIOS settings.

I disabled the floppy disc drive in the bios, and I also set the HD as the first boot device. That did the trick. Thanks!
