Re: Booting from cd rom

There are many variations of this but first is the old way where order of boot devices is set in your BIOS config. I would avoid this unless it is necessary.

A more modern approach occurs during boot where the BOIS screen displays a function key to hit for an alternate boot device and you can make a one time selection for the Cd-Rom drive. The requirements to perform are dependent on the manufacturer and model of your computer.

Im not able to boot from os cd the bios can see rom drive and hard drive but im not able to boot iv'e tried f12 but no joy can you help?

hi there.

If you go to the bios on start up and select cd rom drive as your primary boot and then restart. Your computer will then try to boot first from the cd rom drive and second from the hard drive. If it fails to boot from the disk then this would lead me to believe that either the disk is unreadable by the drive or that the cd rom drive itself is unable to read the disk.

I have a dell gx520 running xp home . I want to dual boot ubuntu but the cd rom will not read from ubuntu disk. It readsxp and music cd's ok so it is not the rom at fault

Make sure you set the BIOS to boot on the CD rom first. You can set it via the BIOS utility. Usually you press the F5 key and then go to boot options. And then place your CD ROM drive on the 1st boot priority.
Make sure also that your CD installer is working and not from a bad ISO download.

I want my desktop to boot from cd. But in the boot priorities there is no option for CD-ROM. How can I make CD-ROM first boot priority?

If there is no cd rom, you need to check for it your bios detects your cd rom drive, and make sure you connect it properly.

If you are using IDE CD-ROM,make sure it doesnt conflict on your Master-Slave configuration. if you are using SATA CD-ROM make sure it connects properly to your SATA Ports, and also check if you have properly connect the power cable to your CD Drive.

I have a Dell Dimension 4600. I need to re-install Windows XP Professional. The PC won't boot from the CD-ROM. When I choose F12, then Boot from IDE CD-ROM, the PC boots directly to Windows. how can I get...

Check the BIOS to make sure that the CD rom is the first boot devices in the bootup sequence, also make sure that the cd rom does show up in the BIOS.
Make sure that the CD Rom itself is good or the boot cd you are using is good, try it on other PC.

Os instalation will not load

Hi Dobssand, the most common reason for a CD-ROM (With a Windows CD in it) does not start to load is the motherboard's bios is not set correctly. While in the bios go to the title Boot & enter boot order. This is a common boot order for a PC.
1st boot device = [Floppy disk drive]
2nd boot device = [CD-ROM drive] (Model number of the CD-ROM drive).
3rd boot device = [Primary Hard Disk Drive] (Model number of drive).

Second most common reason is the data cable to the CD-ROM drive is loose or not fully connected either at the CD-ROM or at the motherboard. (Check it).
If you choose not to enter your bios, you can still get the CD-ROM drive to boot the Win CD in this fashion. Load the Win CD into the CD-ROM drive. Power off the system. Than power on the system & start to press the F8 key once every two seconds. Windows "Please select boot device:" window will open. Using your keyboards up & down arrow keys high-light the CD-ROM drive that has the win CD in it & press the enter key. Windows should start to load. If you receive an error message stating windows can not find your hard disk drive. Than you must enter your bios & go to the title Boot. Your hard disk drive is not listed in the boot order section. Worst case! Your hard disk drive may be faulty. Find the manufactures name printed on a large white sticker on once side of the HDD. Go to the manufactures web site & download their drive setup software so you can create a bootable floppy disk. This will allow you to check/test the HDD & format it for a windows installation.

Or is this not the issue you are having?

Good luck!

HP PC will not boot up

the first thing that i would do is see if you can go into safe mode and try booting from there . when it comes up choose the one that is already hilighted. if it still wont boot then open up the tower and unplug the power from the cd rom. if it is your cd rom i would go and by another one or return the cd rom.

hope this works
