Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4164 Notebook
I have changed my boot options to make the cd drive boot first but that didn't help anything. It still skipped the cd and went straight to windows. I am currently in the process of making a new cd and am going to try that but other wise I'm at a loss of what to do. Any suggestions?
Best to get an external CD/DVD-drive. But, just for interesting sake: did you try and clean the CD properly with a lint free cloth from the inside to the outside? There just may be a fatty spot on it. Also, try and run a cd cleaning cd in your drive first and see if it helps? Hope you could get this to work.

1. Insert the restore disk into your computer's DVD/CD
drive. Prior login to your user account is not required.
2.Reboot your computer. Watch the boot screens and wait for
the onscreen prompt to press any key. If you do not get a prompt, reboot your
computer once more and skip to step four.
3.Press any key to boot from CD when prompted to do so. You
will now be taken to the first screen in the restore process. Follow the
onscreen prompts to finish restoring your machine.
4.Change your BIOS settings, if necessary, to boot from your
CD drive first. Common options for entering the BIOS include pressing
"ESC," "DEL" or "F12" on your computer's first
boot screen. If you don't know how to get to the BIOS, check your computer's
documentation for instructions. Once inside the BIOS, set the primary boot to
CD-ROM and save your changes. Exit the BIOS and wait as your computer reboots
and begins the restore process.
