A friend of mine is having trouble with her computer. She says this is what she gets:

Quote:
* Press power button.

*I get the boot record error, please insert system disc & press enter.

*I insert the disc, press enter, & another error message comes up: MASTER BOOT RECORD ERROR, press any key to continue.

*I press a key, & it brings me back to the boot error, which again tells me to insert the system disc & press enter.

It's just going around in a circle, I don't know what to do! Please help me.


I told her about the Master Boot Record and she said this:
Quote:
That message doesn't come up for me, so I don't think that would work. Like I said, it starts out with 'Boot Record Error'.


So I don't know what's going on.

master boot record failure it means that there is some problem in the hard disk. so your hard disk boot record section may got damage .
contact the computer vendor to repair the hard disk first.

you can also run the chkdsk command after formatting the hard disk.

after formatting the hard disk you can try to install the windows .
