Recently, my hard drive had a SYSTEM BOOT FAILURE. The drive went bad for some reason and I had to replace it. I bought a new drive and installed it.

The first time I start my computer every day (about 6:00-7:00 a.m.) it gives this error for my new drive. However, if I restart my computer, the drive then boots correctly every time. If I have to restart during the day, the error messsage never shows up again. It only shows the error the first time.

Anyone have any idea why this happens?

By the way, I have no floppy disc in the drive (and no drive defined in the BIOS) and I have the boot order set to hard disk first, then CD-ROM.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
