You need to set the boot device priority in the BIOS in such a way that the computer will take an external CD/DVD-drive as first boot device. to do this, you need to enable USB legacy support first, save and exit from the BIOS settings and then return to the BIOS to set the USB-CD/DVD-drive as primary boot device.

What do i do it says this on mine this is what mine has 1. IDE0 2. IDE1 3. USB FDD 4. USB HDD 5. Network Boot : Atheros Boot Agent 6. USB CDROM


Options 1 and 2 are internal hard drives. Option 3 is a USB flash drive, option 4 is a USB hard drive. Option 5 is a network boot protocol to boot from a local server. Option 6 is to boot from a USB CD drive.

If your computer does not boot in the current configuration, try selecting IDE1 instead of IDE0. One of those two drives has your operating system on it. If neither will boot, then you will need to install an operating system on one of them by inserting an install disc in a USB CD drive and selecting option 6.

My emachines e350 won`t turn on it alweys says No bootable device--Please restart systam and I do that and it says it again


Check that you have not left a non-bootable CD, diskette, or DVD in the drives of your PC, nor have any USB devices plugged in that the system might be looking to try to boot from.

If the above check is clear, then go into the BIOS settings and check that your internal hard disk drive is set as the first boot device or is ahead of any other disk drives you may have installed.

You cannot connect computers to each other by just using a standard USB cable - it doesn't work that way.

If you still cannot boot from your internal hard drive, then you should consider downloading a copy of Hiren's Boot CD (which is a CD .ISO image) then burn this to a real CD and try booting from that media - you may have to select the CD as a boot device in your BIOS or if you get a boot options menu.

If you can boot the Hiren's CD ok, then your internal hard disk may have failed - you can test this with the DOS Programs of the Hiren's CD by selecting Hard Disk tools then selecting HDAT2 which will try to find any installed hard disks then allow you to test these and repair problems if possible.

The screen says: "Intel UNDI , PXE-2.1 (buld 082) For Realtek RTL8101E/8102E PCI-E Ethernet Controller v1.06 (080225) CLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 03 0D A0 C7 C7 GUID:...


Your computer tries to "boot" from various devices:
* internal disk-drive
* internal CD/DVD drive
* internal 3.5" drive
* external USB device (memory stick, external CD drive, et cetera)
* via your network-adapter -- trying to connect to a "boot-server"

So, restart your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP mode.
Be sure that the disk-drive *IS* listed.
If you want, exclude the "network" boot-device,
since the error-messages that you are seeing are indicating that *NO* boot-server exists on your network.

What the messages *COULD* imply is that there is no media in the CD/DVD drive,
no media in the 3.5" drive, nothing "bootable" connected via a USB port,
*AND* that your computer *TRIED* but *FAILED* to boot from your disk-drive.

That is, your disk-drive either is electrically disconnected (no power reaching it)
or electronically disconnected (the "data" cable is not attached)
or that the disk-drive itself is "dead".

Take your computer to a qualified technician for trouble-shooting.
You may have to replace the "dead" disk-drive with a brand-new one.

Usb dvd writer can install xp?


Yes you can use a usb external cd/dvd-rom to any operating system as long as the bios allows you to, most bios's have the capability.

When the external usb drive has been connected power up the mechine, in post it should tell what to press to enter your boot menu without entering your bios and choose usb drive to boot.

Toshiba A50 Not able to boot from CD


When you load the cd and reboot, when you see the toshiba screen, start tapping F12, see if this brings up the temporary boot menu, if it does choose the cd and watch closely for "press any key". If there is nothing showing, might I suggest you get an external cd drive that attaches by usb. You will then have to get back to the BIOS and set the usb as your first boot device and try to boot again from the usb cd drive. Good luck.

I don´t have internal cd, only external(usb)


You will need an internal CD drive for the machine in order to load XP. If it doesn't recognize the external in the boot menu, then there is no setting to get it to.
