Pri Master HDD error (Win XP Home sp1)

  gersfan 21:27 18 Oct 04

System powers up to a blank screen with the following message.

Pri Master HDD error
Run Setup
Press F1 to continue (pressed F1 and another message was displayed.)

Drive not ready
Insert boot diskette in A:
Press any key when ready

This was as far as I could go as I only have the xp installation disc.
any help with this problem would be very much appreciated.

As you have the XP CD you can boot with it and try a repair.
