    Disk boot failure

    A friend has a HP Pavilion Computer model 533w which uses xp. He added a program and now he gets this error message" Disk boot failure- insert system disk". This is all that will come up on the screen. Just what is the system disk and how to get a copy now that the computer does not work. Is there a way to correct the problem? Will a start up disk from another HP Pavilion Computer using Windows ME work to get the other computer to work? He does not have any CD,s with xp on them as HP does not ship a copy with the computer. How can this problem be fixed as there is lots of data on the hard drive that needs to be saved. Help!!!!
