    Rebuilt my crashed system a little while ago, ever since I have to have the resource disl in the drive to start windows XP/ If I don't insert the disk I get a press F1 to resart or F2 to go to setup. When I put in the resource disk it comes up boot from disk or hard drive, I select hard drive and windows starts normally. should I go to setup, start from hard drive?

    For some reason your os has been corrupted and wont boot without the resource cd. You will need to either repair your system files through the os cd, or install a new os all together.

    I already had to reinstall windows before I figured my RAM failed, so I guess I can live with it for a while, was hoping it was an easy fix.
