Drive requires cd drivers to run Boot CD.
Some versions came with floppy disk to start cdrom drives, This will also require a floppy drive.

You may also try hitting f10 to enter bios setup make sure cdrom is bootable.

    Typical.


    1. Check that your cd is not scratched or has finger or smudge prints. If scratched you can take to music cd shop &have them buff out scratches for a fee of course. If smudged clean with clean cloth & 99% isporiL alchol.

    2. Sometimes the cd drivers remain loaded in memory after restart other times there dumped & cannot read cd. You can run driver before start up of windows to allow access to cdrrom but it uses up memory & causes conflict when windows starts.
    How often do you run xp boot? should only need if system failure.

The disk itself may be corrupt , go to microsoft and download xp home or pro , whatever your using and burn to a disk .If you don't have access to another computer , go to a repair shop and you can usually buy a burn't copy of xp for 5 to 10 dollars . RE-install as usual. please note !!! you must know what service pack is needed for the install . SP1 - SP2 ....OR to be on the safe side just get XP SP1. good luck!
