JSI Tip 5966. You receive 'Invalid system disk' when you start Windows XP?

When you try to start your computer, you receive:

Invalid system disk.

If there is a non-system diskette in the floppy drive, remove it.

If your computer is configured to start from the CD-ROM drive, you could receive this message.

Set the computer BIOS to start in the following order:

Drive A
Hard disk
CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive
