|That is the error i get when i attempt to use the Recovery Disks provided by HP. Long story short, the PC's hard drive failed, and I installed a new one, and after installation, powered it up, booted to BIOS, changed the boot priority to DVD-ROM drive, and restarted computer with the Recovery CD 1:2 in the drive. Also, the "Press any key to boot to CD/DVD-ROM" message does not appear I just get the black screen, that has the flashing cursor for probably 30-40 seconds before "Disk Boot Error, Please insert system disk, and press Enter." appears.|
I have checked the connections, and rechecked them, so that is not the issue. I heard a rumor that HP tattoos their harddrives so that you cannot do a fresh install on a new harddrive without sending to them first, am I being scammed, or is there something i am really overlooking?
Previous Hard drive was 500Gb, upgraded to 1 TB, other specs the same except storage capacity.
PC is an HP Media Center about 2 1/2 years old.
