Question about Jetway 939GT4-SLI-G Motherboard
Whenever I boot up my PC it ALWAYS checks to see if a bootable disk is in the CD drive. If it finds one, it will display the "press any key to boot from CD...." message, then boots normally, but if it can't find a disk, it says "please insert bootable media and press enter" and then does nothing, even if I put a windows disk in and press enter. Yes, I have tried setting it to boot from the hard drive first, and then tried turning off CD drive boot up entirely, but then it just sits there and does nothing after posting.
Not entirely sure if it's related, but it also randomly disconnects from my USB keyboard, causing whatever the last key I pressed to repeat itself until it reconnects the keyboard, about two seconds later. I have tried multiple USB ports and using it on my laptop, and it doesn't seem to be a problem with my keyboard.
I have the same problems, i dont think that the windows is responsible for it, this is a bug in the bios of the mainboard.Please give us a new updated version to flash our bioses

Just taking a guess here. Did you do a fresh install of winXP? This type of problem is usually caused because the boot.ini is out of order OR your BIOS settings are not correct. Get into windows however you have to. Once in windows you'll find the boot.ini on the root of C:\ Please copy this file to a floppy disk just in case you make a boo-boo.
You need to check this file. Double left click the file & it will open in notepade. There are five lines and they must read like below, do not make a single line turn into 6 lines.
It should look just like this:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
The only differance between you & me might be the "name",
I use Windows XP Professional, yours might read Windows XP Home Edition.
Change what you need "only" and save the file. Double check. Than remove the CD from your PC and shut down. Wait a minute and start it up.

bootable USB guide, here we assume that you are using either Vista or Windows 7 to create a bootable USB.
1. Insert your USB (4GB+ preferable) stick to the system and backup all the data from the USB as we are going to format the USB to make it as bootable.
2. Open elevated Command Prompt. To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter. Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.
3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:
DISKPART and hit enter.
LIST DISK and hit enter.
Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive. In the below image my USB drive disk no is Disk 1.
4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter. As these commands are self explanatory, you can easily guess what these commands do.
SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number)
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
(Format process may take few seconds)
Don't close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.
5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I use "D" as my optical (DVD) drive letter and "H" as my USB drive letter.
6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:
D:CD BOOT and hit enter. Where "D" is your DVD drive letter.
CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.
(Where "H" is your USB drive letter)
7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.
You are done with your bootable USB. You can now use this bootable USB as bootable DVD on any computer that comes with USB boot feature (most of the current motherboards support this feature).
Note that this bootable USB guide will not work if you are trying to make a bootable USB on XP computer.
boot from a usb drive
hope this helps
