As the computer boots press the DEL key to access BIOS
note: some systems you must press F2 or Esc
In BIOS under the BOOT tab options change the Boot order so that the CD drive is First
Select EXIT and Save Changes to reboot
note: make sure the CD is in the drive BEFORE you reboot!
(it sounds obvious but a lot of people forget)
If the CD is bootable it will start its own boot sequence.

How can i change first boot device cd rom to dvd rom


Hi,

To change your boot device you must change the setting in you BIOS.

To do this restart your computer and press delete repeatedly.
When you are in the BIOS search for Boot Priority within the different tabs.
To set you DVD Drive as the boot device make sure it replaces the CD Drive.
Set the DVD Drive as the first priority and your Hard drive as the second boot priority.
Save the settings and exit.

This will enable you to boot from your DVD Drive if a bootable disc is present in the drive.

Let me know if this solution was helpful!

Can't instal xp


You can try and tap on the F8 key when the computer is booting up and see if an optional boot menu pops up and if it does then select the CD-Rom Drive to boot from the CD, and if not then you will have to go into your BIOS setup and change the boot sequence to boot from the CD-Rom Drive first. Also, if you already have windows on the hard drive and you are using a modified boot screen you might get an error when you try to install XP.

When ever i plug my cd rom it has a crashing sound then when the os booting need to start the cd rom is not connected anymore how can i fix this?


at boot go into the bios system, under "advanced settings" there should be a hard drives area, make sure that your CD drive is correctly displayed in the BIOS. looking to see if its correctly named with no funky characters.

it should also display the CDROM name during the "boot time diagnostic screen" if that is enabled in the bios. (its the quick flash of a screen just before the hard drive boots and throws a windows splash screen).

if the bios doesnt pass the CDROM as attached, windows doesnt know its there.

if the BIOS passes all the correct info then go into the control panel under windows and into the device manager (cant find it hit? F1 and type "device manager") and look under the drives section to see if there is any issues with the deivce. this is also the place you would use if you decide to change drivers.

Start up error message issue: floppy disk fail


if im correct, you havent installed a floppy drive yet...
while the comp is booting press esc (on some comps its F10 it should say on the screen) and access the boot sequence..in there there is a list of boot items...they always list floppy drive as the first boot drive in case you need to recover your comp...remove floppy drive from your boot list making sure that your hardrive (C) is first drive to boot.
After you get your comp set up, you may want to change that sequence in case you ever have problems with your HDD

"NTLDR" is missing"


Change your computer's boot sequence. Make sure that your computer's first boot sequence is the CD-ROM Drive.

1.Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

3.If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.

4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

5.Enter in the following commands

COPY X:i386NTLDR C:
COPY X:i386NTDETECT.COM C:
[where X=CD ROM Drive]
Take out the CD ROM and type exit

I can't install windows without disket drive


Create a vitual CD/DVD drive. Convert the installation disc to an image, mount it on your virtual drive and proceed with the installation Do not install the software that creates a virtual drive like Alcohol or Ultr-ISO on any partition other than C where you are likely to install the OS.....
Otherwise use an external CD ROM and do the same by booting from the CD by altering the boot sequence in the BIOS!.......sodeep

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration


Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.
