Vista won't start unless DVD is in drive

#1
My installation seems to be fine, but I was not at the console for some of the installation. Now my computer won't boot unless the installation DVD is in the drive. Did I miss something during the installation process -- and is there a way to correct the problem without re-installing from scratch?:confused:

Hi!! I don't know if this will help you or not, I have a of solutions (snips) kept in my computer memory from last year. These people had similar problems...

Thanks for the help. Turned out to be a BIOS problem... Vista could not find the proper IDE channel to assign to my SATA hard drive. I fiddled with the the SATA settings in the boot priority list and it "cured" itself.

Just keep clicking cancel. It should boot up then.
