Jumpers set correctly you may have both the hard drives set to master!

Sounds like a good reason to pick up a flash drive...a 256 mb one can't cost more that $20.

umm... the problem is I already have a flashdisk 128MB and my friend pc doesn't have CD-RW or even DVD-+RW, and I don't see any jumper on SATA HDD, also I already set my HDD jumper to master and DVD ROM to slave. is there any jumper on SATA HDD?

SATA's dont have jumpers. try setting your hard drive to slave and if that doesnt work
check the boot sequence in the bios

its normal that you cant boot your os as your friend probably doesnt have the same hardware as you

My friend had a similar problem saturday.
He plugged in a Pata drive on his MOBO, a Intel Perl, and the system didnt want to boot from his Sata drive anymore.
He said "whatever new HW i plug, becames the 1st boot device in the bios".
He said it also happens when plugging his USB pen drive.

The solution? In the Bios boot sequence part, he disabled the Pata drive from booting.
