At the moment I am having computer problems. Indeed, I am actually on a back-up PC (my last one), which is slow and cumbersome compared to the newer one. Here's the problem: It is acting like the Hard drive is not there and therefore can't load up. I get this (or something along the lines of):
Verifying DMI pool data..........
BOOT FROM CD/DVD
DISK BOOT FAILURE. INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER
At this point, I should point out I have had this problem before and have, up to now, always been able to get things working. Mind you, last time it took a week. Anyway, eventually, when things do start to work, I would get the following message after a restart (or a lot of restarts)::
Error loading operating system.
At this point I am ready to jump for joy, as it means I can restart once more and the whole thing will load up normally like nothing was wrong - so I don't think there is physically anything wrong with the hard drive. Thankfully everything is backed up on my external hard drive, sans a couple of songs I bought on iTunes.
Any suggestions / hints?
