Rob mate - can't be sure but consider the following:
Are your drives PATA - ie use the 40-pin cables?
Does it boot OK if you disconnect all cables from the
new DVD drive?
Have you set your master & slave jumpers so that
the drives are both the same? If you do, you may well
be unable to properly access one or both.
You could try putting them on separate IDE controllers
(put your hard drive on the first, DCD on the second).

I am running Windows XP Pro on my pc and decided to install a new
DVD burner. A simple removal and install. Went to boot for the first
time and upon the boot, it stops with this message: "Disk Boot Failure,
Insert System Disk and Press Enter". I checked all cables thinking in the
process of installing the new dvd burner that I pulled something loose.
I ended up pulling the hard drive out and installed it in a USB case and
checked it on another computer to make certain the drive wasn't bad.
After that I was going to do a Fix MBR from dos and the fix boot, but it
if I go any further that I could loose all that was on my drive because
partition wasn't right. It's possible I used WD's data lifeguard tool to
this drive. From there I put the window install disk in the drive and was
around for something and the next thing I knew was that my computer booted
with the windows disk in. I tried booting again without, but had to put
windows disc back in my D drive to boot. I would like some help on
what to do to get back to booting without using my disk. Any information
be greatly appreciated.
I have researched Microsoft and can't find what I need.
