Thank you
This message is often caused by a faulty hard drive.
Well, couldn't be prouder of myself because I fixed it. I followed directions and went into F2 under drives and changes so the hard drive was #1 which it wasn't and then restarted. It worked and my favorite old computer is chugging right along.
