    no matter what i did, xp wouldnt boot from disk, i checked bios settings &
    checked multiple disks.. and it still wouldnt boot from disk. but yet the
    minute i put vista in, it booted from disk no problem.. so it wasnt a
    hardware issue.. because how could it be a hardware issue if it boots other
    disks besides xp? so therefore, i installed vista. and now my computer works.
    people argue that it wasnt the update that caused it, and say "its your
    hardware" or "the update did that because you had malware" im sorry but i
    dont think so. my hardware was and is fine. also i take very good care of my
    pc.. i have antivirus, good firewall, and ANTI adware,malware, spyware
    programs. that are actually trusted.. so until im proved otherwise, its an
    update issue.. i just think its funny and ironic, people tell me its a
    hardware issue, or i dont have the settings correct, when it works perfectly
    fine with an os that isnt xp.. or the fact that i personally know alot of
    people who have this issue, that couldnt boot from disk on 10 xp disks. but
    can boot perfectly fine on one of the newer os'.. and they were all told the
    same from microsoft.. that it was hardware, virus, or their fault. that it
    wasnt an update.. and people constantly argue that its not the update, that
    people dont have that problem.. but if anyone googles "bad xp update" or "bad
    xp update bsod" its all over the internet. people asking for help.. people
    not understanding how come just a minute ago their pc was fine, downloading
    updates, and the next its crashed, stuck in a reboot loop, they have the
    bsod, and cant boot from disk. and everyone that cant boot from disk such as
    myself and a few people i know.. lost everything on their harddrive unless
    their willing to pay 1200 or more, according to size of the harddrive..

    A disk is hardware, so the logical conclusion would be that the disk has
    failed in one capacity or another. Disks *do* fail, in case you haven't yet
    heard of such a thing.

    What freely-available tests have you done to verify the disk's integrity?
    Being M$, of course there are any number that you can pay for.

    I forgot to add that since you can successfully boot from other M$ disks,
    why not jumper the troublesome one to "slave" and retrieve the data off it
    that way, if possible.

    Amazing it is that you would have attempted booting all those "other disks"
    without doing the obvious slave jumpering, but at my age that requires cheap
    imported reading glasses from the $1 store.
