    Prezados colegas,

    ocorreu a mensagem DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.

    Acontece que comprei a licença do Windows Vista Starter e não tenho o tla do
    system disk.

    Já li em diversos fóruns da net sobre essa mensagem mas ninguém apresentou
    solução.

    Me parece ser outro bug do Vista, uma vez que o SO ainda está em fase de
    desenvolvimento.

    Mas terei que contratar um técnico para resolver um problema inerente ao SO
    recém comprado?

    Não faz 4 meses que adquiri o computador e a licença.



    Eis que, ontem estava fazendo desfragmentação e ficou idle, quando fui
    usá-lo novamente, não deu sinal de vida. Resetei e então sobreveio a tal
    mensagem de erro. É a segunda vez que isto acontece. Na primeira consegui
    mexer em tanta configuração que voltou. Por isso acredito ser bug do Vista.
    Se estivesse corrompido meu HD certamente não haveria tido uma segunda vez,
    certo?



    Espero que alguém da Microsoft possa me ajudar ou alguém que esteja passando
    pelo mesmo problema.





    Agradecida,

    Flávia.

    Ohla fliviabrum--

    Try these--a cable out isn't the only cause for this error:

    ***Startup Repair from the Vista DVD***

    How to Use The Vista DVD to Repair Vista (Startup Repair is misnamed by the
    Win RE team and it can be used to fix many Vista components even when you
    ***can boot to Vista):

    http://www.windowsvista.windowsreinstall.com/vistaultimate/repairstartup/index.htm

    If you elect to run Startup repair from the Vista DVD (it can fix major
    components in Vista--I've verified this many many times; it's good for more
    than startup problems, and the Win RE team simply screwed up when they named
    it not understanding its full functionality):

    Startup Repair will look like this when you put in the Vista DVD:

    http://www.vistaclues.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/12/click-repair-your-computer.png

    You run the startup repair tool this way (and system restore from here is
    also sometimes effective):

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925810/en-us

    How To Run Startup Repair In Vista Ultimate (Multiple Screenshots)
    http://www.windowsvista.windowsreinstall.com/vistaultimate/repairstartup/index.htm

    It will automatically take you to this on your screen:

    http://www.vistaclues.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/12/click-repair-your-computer.png

    That will allow you to go to the Vista setup that has a Repair link on
    thelower left corner>click it and then you'll see a gray backgrounded list
    and I want you to click Startup Repair from it and follow the directions.

    The gray screen after you click the first link in the above pic will look
    like this:

    http://www.windowsreinstall.com/winvista/images/repair/staruprepair/Image17.gif

    Click Startup Repair, the link at the top and after it scans>click OK and
    let it try to repair Vista. It will tell you if it does, and if it
    doesn't, try System Restore from the Recovery Link on the DVD. If these
    don't work booting into Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key and using System
    Restore from one of the safe modes besides VGA may work. That means you
    have the option to try 4 different safe modes to get to system restore, (one
    from the Recovery link on the DVD) and sometimes one will work when the
    others won't.


    You could also try a Repair Install with Vista which is done exactly the
    same way as in XP:

    ***Repair Install Steps*** (can be used for Vista) MVP Doug Knox
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/helpandsupport/learnmore/tips/doug92.mspx


    ***Using the F8 Environment***

    ***Taking Full Advantage of the F8 Options (Windows Advanced Options Menu)
    by starting the PC and tapping F8 once per second when the firmware screen
    with the pc manufacturer's name shows a few seconds after restarting***:

    The F8 options in Vista are the same as XP, and the link for Safe Mode Boot
    options is labled XP by MSFT but they are the same for Vista (they haven't
    updated to add Vista to the title as they have with several MSKBs that apply
    to both).

    Again, pressing F8 repeatedly when you seem the firmware screen may be is a
    generic way to launch Windows RE on some OEM Vista computers.

    You could also:

    Think: I have 4 different ways to get back my XP at F8 and try 'em in order.
    1) Safe Mode 2) Safe Mode with Cmd to Sys Restore which is simply a cmd
    prompt in safe mode 3) Safe Mode with Neworking 4) LKG or Last Known Good
    Configuration


    Try to F8 to the Windows Adv Options Menu>try 3 safe modes there (I don't
    use WGA) and Last Known Good>then I go to Win RE in Vista. That gives you a
    choice of Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking,and Safe Mode with Command
    Prompt.

    These methods are outlined in

    A description of the Safe Mode Boot options in Windows XP/and Vista

    Frequently Asked Questions Regarding System Restore from MSFT:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/winxppro/plan/faqsrwxp.mspx

    System Restore can be run from the Win RE recovery environment from the same
    link as Startup Repair, and sometimes it will work from one F8 safe mode
    location or from the Win Recovery Environment when it won't work from other
    locations.
