Boot error message. Disk boot failure, Insert system disk.



    I'm stuck. I did a new hard drive install. When the new HD was complete I thought I would copy the data from the old drive to the new. They both still had os installed.  They were both connected to the system at the same time, after the new boot.

    When I finished, I removed the old drive. The new drive wouldn't boot. "Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter". After the system disk were introduced, the system booted fine. I could reboot from the shutdown option as a warm boot.

    The problem I have is when the system is shutdown completely. It requires the system disk again. It will reboot after the system disk is reinstalled. I continually get the "Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter" error message.

    Here is the funny thing. During bootup after a shutdown, I can F2 into the bios before the error message. It will allow me to exit and then windows will boot without the error message. avoiding the error. This error message is during POST.

    How can I rid this error message completely?
