    Hi Brian, main problem is does not matter what disk I put in cd rom as it refuses to boot from cd rom even though order is correct in bios

    Have tried the Xp repair disk I downloaded but same issue

  • ricardo cafolla Apr 21, 2013

    Ps also copied Xp recovery onto USB, ensured bios boot order was correct but still going straight to hard drive

  • ricardo cafolla Apr 21, 2013

    Ps current system is Xp ...I am looking to 'boot and nuke' hard drive then install win 7 but cannot get it to boot from cd for either even though bios boot order correct

  • ricardo cafolla Apr 22, 2013

    Thought of a possible solution ....I'm still new to this so I may be way out .. If I was to use a sata to IDE adaptor so I could plug this drive into another computer that I know recognises the cd rom first would this make a difference or will I get the same problem ?

This should work.

And just to add that your system specs are really old and you should think about upgrading. 128 mb ram upgradable to 2 gigs.

Integrated 4x agp graphics...you should be able to install a new agp graphics card.

Or you should buy a new computer if you dont know how to build your own which can be tricky and expensive if you cant reuse many parts.
