We seem to have stumbled into an area where I can find very little
information, allow me to explain.

I recently bought a barebones PC and moved my disks, optical drives etc into
the PC.

I was told that I could use the repair option once the XP setup had started
to get XP to work with the new motherboard etc.

It worked however I now get the error "BOOT DISK FAILURE" when booting the PC.

A quick google showed that if you leave the XP cd in the drive it boots
properly but you need to leave it in.

I'm going to do some more research.

Check your BIOS to make sure you have it set to boot off of your hard drive.

Also, if that doesn't work, boot from your Window's installation CD and do a
chkdsk /r.
