"DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER".A case of OS on the disk ,reinstall the OS may resolve the problem.

It's not seeing your hard drive or it's not seeing an operating system on your hard drive. Go into cmos/bios setup and make sure the drive is showing there.

Maybe it's a bad or loose hard drive data cable. That's the only thing I can think of offhand.
