Possibly a bios problem if the bios is not set to boot from a cd/dvd. Press Delete key or F2 as soon as you switch on, or whichever key it needs to get in to the bios. Change the boot option to boot from CD/DVD first. Save settings and exit.
Some computers have a one time boot menu which lets you boot from whichever drive you like just for that time. Usually F11, F12, F2.
Hello, you are experiencing this because of the Boot priority setting in your bios. Your computer has been set to boot from your hard disk first and so it will never try to boot from a CD when it starts. There are 2 ways to fix this:
1. Go into your bios (usually by pressing F2, F10 or Delete key as your computer starts) and set the boot priority to check CD or optical drives first. Consult your PC manual if necessary.
2. Press F12 when your computer starts, this will bring up a menu to select boot options. Choose your CD drive.
Thanks for using FixYa
Your computer is configured to recognize specific devices in your computer. If you removed the CDROM drive, you need to tell your computer that it's gone, and that you're aware of it. That message is kind of like a "Hey, there's something missing from your computer... did you know about this?"
You should boot your computer up and get into the BIOS. When your computer turns on, you'll see a message in the corner that says something like "Press F2 for BIOS" or something like that. Get into the BIOS menu using this option. When you get into the BIOS, you'll need to find the sub-menu called "IDE Devices" or something referring to IDE drives. You should see two IDE channels, with two possible devices per channel. You should see the entry where your CDROM drive used to be - change this option to "Disabled" and then save your settings and reboot the computer. The message should go away. Good luck!
Please let me know what is the make and the model of the pc that you are using.. Also, go to the bios, under boot menu, make sure that you have hard drive as the first boot option.. For further queries please get in touch..
F8. If that isn't it I would go up to F11. The important thing to remember is you may have to repeatedly tap it starting as soon as you see the Dell logo on your screen. Let me know if this helps. I may need more info on what exactly you are wanting to accomplish. I am writing this as to help you with getting to the area of your computer that deals with how it boots up. Meaning that you will need to change it from hard disk to cd rom. If this is not what you are looking for let me know email@example.com and I am sure I can be of further assistance to you.
