USB DVD DRIVE


The pecking order for boot is controlled as you have said by the bios. I have found that not all USB connections are the same and have had to try the different USB connections to get one to boot.

Make sure that the DVD is a system boot disc and is in the drive when you power up.

If the HDD is still on the boot BIOS list I would try removing it from the list. The drive should still be available but the BIOS will not see it as a boot choice.

You may want to swap the SATA connections on the HDD drive making the SYS HDD no longer the default boot.

It is possible that the drivers for the DVD drive you are trying to boot from are not loaded and the drive is not accessible. Look at the bios using setup after turn on to see if the DVD drive is registered. It may be it gets its driver later during the windows boot.

You may have to use more of a generic DVD drive.or internal drive.

Can't boot from dvd drive


When you boot your PC, a brief display should appear that gives you options for booting. On my computer, this is done by pressing and holding the F12 key, although your PC may be different. If you've already tried this and it simply will not read the disk in the drive, then you have a problem with your DVD drive. In that case, it could be the hardware (drive) itself, a loose connection within the PC housing, or it could be something as simple as a software driver. Check to make sure your drivers are up to date first. But, also make sure you are following the necessary steps (for your computer) in the boot process to tell it to boot from the CD/DVD.

I canot boot my pc i select f12 then coming boot menu i select boot from cd rom but not display press any key to boot


If I understand what you are asking, you want to boot from CD but the boot from cd/dvd at start up is not showing up. It sounds like you have set in your BIOS enable boot from CD/DVD, But to be able to boot from CD/DVD you need to "in your BIOS" go to drive manager or it could be called boot drive priority, something llike that and put the CD/DVD drive first or at least before your Hard Drive.
That should make this show up for you now as long as its a bootable CD/DVD disk.
Hope this helps.

Laptop wont boot from cd/dvd drive, hard drive is cleasn, no viru


Hi usavahe.
Booting from CD should be possible.
1) When the laptop first starts to power up, repeatedly press the F12 key. This should bring you to a screen that lets you select the boot device.
2) For the Satellite, it may show icons across the bottom of the screen. You want the one that looks like a CD.
3) It should the start to boot from the Windows CD (if it is indeed a bootable disc) and you will see the message "press any key to boot from cd".
4) Press any key you want on the keyboard and the Windows CD installation process should begin

Hope that helps

My pc won't boot from cd-rom... Bios recognizes both cd-rom drive and hdd, and boot sequence is set to boot from cd-rom but when it comes to boot from the windows XP install dvd it shows the message...


you are saying two differnt things here.. CDROM and DVD if its a dvd in a CD ROM it will not boot a windows disk if somehow this is written to a DVD Is it original?
Secondly is the Cd ( or DVD drive) actaully working. Being listed in CMOS does not guarantee that.

I know you have listed the drive as DVD but do you have 1 or two drives installed and not have the disk in the recognised drive.; have to eliminatge all possibilities of werror in interpretation here.

So assuming everything appears as it should, then the medial in the drive has to be considered at fault .. dirty disk.. drive needs iris clean, not an original disk, damaged disk, not a boot disk.. just a windows cvopy.;

DVD Drive Booting


You said you've already done it, but just check your BIOS again to make sure the DVD drive is the first bootable device. You can usually find this by pressing DEL as soon as the computer starts up, then searching for "Boot Order", usually found under an "Advanced Options" menu in the BIOS. Of course, this differs between every manufacturer and model.

If you can't find it, or it's set to the DVD drive, there's something else you could try. Most newer computers will display during post something along the lines of "PRESS F12 TO SELECT BOOT DEVICE" - again the wording will vary between models. Search your screen for anything that looks similar, and press the appropriate key; you should be presented with a list of drives, so choose the one you want to boot from.

If you've done this and it still doesn't boot from the disc, then the disc is very likely not bootable (Or your DVD drive is malfunctioning).

How do I install a SATA DVD drive in my 655A V1.0?


Hi stewwiles, If your bios does not see & list the drive neither will windows hardware manager/ device manager. Check your manual. Enter your bios. The DVD drive should be listed in the same menu as your hard disk drive. Than go to the title "Boot" in your bios & make sure your DVD is listed in the boot order. (List of normal boot order):
1st boot device= Floppy drive
2nd boot device= DVD drive (model no#)
3rd boot device= Primary hard disk drive (model no#)

Make sure your DVD's jumper setting is set to "Master".

Good luck!
