    My
    laptop shows a blue screen in booting process and suddenly restarts.
    Message in the blue screen: unmountable- boot- volume. I tried to boot
    from cd but seems the multibay does not recognise the cd and there is
    no other option in BIOS to boot from cd.

    Your help is most appreciated

    Thanks
    guys for the reply. I get to the bios by f10. there are only 2 options
    via hard d and via multibay. tried both no luck. also tried f8 for
    advanced windows options, not such option!!! safe mode stops in midway
    too.

    cheers

    No
    luck mumma_1, there are only 2 types of settings appearing (not with f1
    or 2), but with f10 and f8, no option as boot from cd. Does multibay
    mean a kind of boot from cd?? however, not recognises the cd though.
    can i erradicate OS and install in from scrach??

    Thanks

    Dear mumma_1,

    Thanks
    so much for your time and help. The main issue is that all solutions
    require the laptop be able to boot up from cd. If I can sort this issue
    out then other solutions will work. I have to leave my desk now. Thank
    you again.

    Cheers

    You
    should definately be given the choice to boot from cd, when you press
    F2 to get into the bios and go to boot options, what boot options do
    you have?



    If you go into the bios you should have the choice to boot from ide
    (hard drive), cdrom, floppy disk, network (on some) and try other boot
    media.



    Are you going into the boot option in the bios by pressing F2.



    Comment posted on Jan 14, 2009
    when
    you press f10 that gives booty options. Try pressing F2 when the
    computer boots and go into the bios to change the boot options.



    Give it a go

    Comment posted on Jan 14, 2009
    Okay
    then then F2 is not the button for you. Some computers go to bios by
    pressing F1 or the delete key when you boot. Try both of these one at a
    time to get into the bios.



    If you have the last good known configuration screen up try choosing
    that option first. If no luck try what I said above. Boot your computer
    and keep pressing the delete button until you hear a beep, if that does
    not take you into the bios then reboot and try pressing the F1 key
    until you hear a beep. If the F2 does not take you into the bios then
    F1 or delete will

    Comment posted on Jan 14, 2009do you have the full version of windows and a floppy drive?

    Comment posted on Jan 14, 2009give me about 20 minutes I am just dishing up dinner and I will get back to you :)

    Comment posted on Jan 14, 2009just
    before I go for my dinner try booting and pressing the delete button to
    enter your bios, you have not said if you have tried that already or
    not, but i believe your model requires you to press the delete button
    to enter the bios

    Comment posted on Jan 14, 2009Okay
    so when you press f10 you say that takes you into the bios? If you do
    get to the bios from there do you have an option any where to load the
    fail safe settings? If you do try this

    Comment posted on Jan 14, 2009does
    your laptop have a recovery partition? If it does you may be able to
    recover your drive to the factory default settings by pressing Alt and
    tap f10 continously until the recovery manger comes up when the
    computer first boots and the compaq screen appears

    if everything you have tried does not work then go to this link http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/Tec... and it will take you to the hp support site with solutions to this error and how to prevent it from happening again.



    I hope I have been of some help
    Comment posted on Jan 14, 2009okay
    i hope you get it sorted, i know on one of my other computers i had to
    set all of the bios boot options to cd before it would actually pick
    the cd up to boot from, maybe you could try setting both options to
    multibay put your xp cd in and boot again.



    Let me know if you get it sorted!

What can I do to boot my PC without using the F8 key?


If you have to select the boot device every time, this means that the BIOS (CMOS) setup does not have the boot device listed as the first device to boot from. At startup, press the key that enters CMOS (BIOS), usually DELETE, or possibly F2. Once in the CMOS, look for boot options, then boot devices, then boot sequence. Find your device and ensure that it is listed first in the boot order sequence. Then save the changes and reboot. You may have it set for a USB or network boot first and it won't boot without intervention.

Dell inspiron 2200. The DVD ROM can read DVD's but Im unable to boot from it with a boot disk.


Have you verified that the disk you are trying to boot is bootable and not damaged on it's boot sector?
Does the drive read other DVDs (after boot into OS?)

Tried to boot from USD, CD/DVD Drive but failed. Still showing No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key


To boot up from the DVD drive go into the BIOS setting - boot device order and move the DVD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.
If you want to boot up with the USB then move the USB as the first device. If the USB is not listed as a boot device then it is not possible to boot up with an USB device.

I can't boot my CD XP,boot to other devices too.. can u help me?


You can select an alternate boot device by pressing F10 or F12 as the Toshiba is booting up. You will get a list of boot devices, move the left or right arrow to select the device you want to boot.
OR
Go into the BIOS configuration and change the boot order of the devices your want to boot up with.

Only booting after pressing f12 and select boot devise


Hi,
You must change the boot sequence from your BIOS.
To do this, when your computer starts press F1 or F2 until you enter the bios setup menu. Usually on Toshiba is F1 or Esc key.
Now that you are in the BIOS, you must locate the boot order section. Just go through every page until you see something like Boot Device, Boot Order, Boot Management, Boot Sequence, etc. (its different for each computer)
There, change the boot order to move the Hard Disk or DVD ROM in the top two items in the list.
Save your settings and exit the BIOS.
Your computer will restart and it should boot up normally.

I have laptop (lenovo E260) this laptop has problem in booting it does not make boot from CD also it has no USB boot so what can I do to fix this problem? It needs format because it does not work


Boot up the laptop and enter into your BIOS. You can do this by pressing F2 at startup. From there select the boot tab and rearrange the boot menu order placing the disc drive to be the first to boot from. Then save changes and exit. You can also select boot from external media (USB boot) and place it in the order you desire such as after CD but before hard drive. Then insert your recovery CD and upon boot it should prompt you to press any key to boot from CD.

Acer Aspire 5100-5674 won't boot. Keyboard won't work, mouse initializes. PXE-E61 : Media Test Failure then PXE-M0F : Exiting PXE ROM I really need some help, I just bought it. And would really like to...


PXE errors are generated by the network boot ROM. In other words, the boot process is attempting a network boot (your BIOS' 4th boot option), which means that your system was unable to boot from a HDD, CD-ROM, or USB device (the first 3 boot options).

PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, System won't boot:

1.Go to Bios Settings
2.Remove LAN booting from booting options...For laptop ,type "X" on the LAN booting option.
3.Save The configuration

Also verify if your harddisk is detected by BIOS

You should definately be given the choice to boot from cd, when you press F2 to get into the bios and go to boot options, what boot options do you have?

If you go into the bios you should have the choice to boot from ide (hard drive), cdrom, floppy disk, network (on some) and try other boot media.

Are you going into the boot option in the bios by pressing F2.

Boot cd-rom type:cd-rom/non-emulation booting


No, it's because Microsoft changed the way boot CDs work with SP2. You need an old CD (Windows XP SP1). I had the same problem here, notebook without floppy, it won't boot from the newer XP version CDs (SP2 or SP3) - but an old SP1 CD works!
(Those were all original Microsoft CDs, and the SP2 / SP3 CDs boot just fine on several other PCs I tested. It's just that some old hardware has a problem with the boot mode used on newer Windows CDs.)
