I have a computer running both Vista and XP as dual boot, set to load Vista first. While it was running and no one using it, a black screen with "boot disk failure, insert system disk" came up. I inserted the Vista OS disk and did the repair option. The details section only seemed to indicate one problem:
The partition table does not have a valid system partition.
Repair action: Partition table repair
Result: completely successful. Error code = 0X0

Restarted, and again got the "boot disk failure". Tried the repair again. Still wouldn't boot.

Shut everything down and checked the cables. Restarted, got "boot disk failure". Inserted Vista OS CD, but it wouldn't load this time. There are two CD drives, but the OS CD didn't load in either drive. I just keep getting the same error message every time I click Enter.

Any suggestions?
