Cannot boot from cd rom drive

Hi,

I can't seem to get my computer to boot from the cd rom drive. I went into the BIOS and chose "ADVANCED BIOS SETUP". Then, I saw a list of 3 Boot something or other (sorry... I can't remember the other word). I changed the first one to my cd rom drive. So here's what I've chosen as my Boot Sequence:

1) LG CD ROM CRD-800B
2) FUJITSU MPB3064ATU
3) MAXTOR 6Y080L0

I'm not sure if this matters or not but I also have another cd rom. It is an A-OPEN CD-RW CRW5232.

One favor... when answering could you please keep your answer kinda non-techy, as I may not be familiar with some of the termonologies.

Thanks

    Hi Joey64,



    Thanks for the quick reply. When I used the Windows cd it worked. However, the cd I need to use doesn't work. The instructions from that cd state if I have more than 1 cd drive, this cd will only boot from the primary cd drive.



    Since it didn't work on the CD ROM CRD-800B, I changed the first number in the Boot Device Sequence to A-OPEN CD-RW CRW5232 ( I thought the CRW might be the primary one)



    My Boot Sequence is now :



    1) A-Open CD-RW CRW5232
    2) FUJITSU MPB3064ATU
    3) MAXTOR 6Y080L0

    Unfortunately, this did not work either. Is there something else we can try?



    How long was I supposed to leave the Windows CD in?



    Thanks

    I think I might not have explained myself correctly joey64. I already have Windowa XP installed on my computer. What I'm trying to do is use a different cd and it's THAT one I want booted from my CD-RW.



    The Windows XP cd you told me to put in, started up just as you said it would with absolutely no problems at all. Everything was PERFECT. But, it's not the Windows XP cd I want booted from the cd-rom drive. The cd iI want booted from the CD-RW drive is a Fix/Recuse and Repair cd. So, are you telling me that before my repair cd will work, I must first re-install Windows XP (even though it's already installed)?



    I'm sooo sorry for the confusion. I guess I didn't explain myself properly in the begining.

    Hi again,



    I ended up fixing the problem myself (but I do thank you for tying though).



    Here's what I did:



    I made sure my CD-RW drive was set as the 1st boot device chosen in the BIOS (so when the "Fix/Recuse and Repair" cd was inserted in my CD-RW drive, would boot up after I restarted my computer)



    Then, since I had Nero 6.6 installed on my computer, I used the "Make a Bootable CD" feature to burn a bootable copy of the "Fix/Recuse and Repair" cd I was originally trying to work with.



    After I burned a bootable copy of the "Fix/Recuse and Repair" cd, I put the NEW bootable cd in my CD-RW drive and I restarted my computer. When the black screen came up it said "PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD". I hit the spacebar and my "Fix/Recuse and Repair" cd started to boot up right away.



    I did not use my Windows XP cd because I was having trouble getting my "Fix/Recuse and Repair" cd to boot NOT the Windows XP cd. Thank you for trying to assist me with my "Bootable CD that wouldn't boot" problem.



    Thanks again for trying. I really do appreciate your efforts!

    if you have 2 cd rom's then if you selected the CD- RW as your first boot device you will insert the cd to this before you save and exit because it will reboot and start reading from cd-rw. there will appear "PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD" then your installtion will proceed. you should not remove your cd until completing your installation because it will again reboot to read from hard disk a message will come out "PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD" you don't need to press any key in order to boot from hard disk. a 39 minutes installation will appear just wait for this and be ready with the winxp serial number because you will be prompted to input this. by the way, it is better to install o.s. with your network not connected to prevent interruptions.

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source

Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.

Note: This error has also been known to occur when a memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it. If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras, ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer.

If you are attempting to boot from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files or is corrupt.

If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive.

Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.

Press any key to boot from the CD

Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.

Note: If you are not receiving the above message and your BIOS boot options are set properly it's also possible that your CD-ROM drive may not be booting from the CD-ROM properly. Verify the jumpers are set properly on the CD-ROM drive.

Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS

Verify that your computer hard disk drive is properly setup in the CMOS setup. Improper settings can cause this error.

Corrupt NTLDR or NTDETECT.COM file

How can i boot my dell studio from cdrom so i can reinsall from external drive?


Turn on the machine, press F12 once the Dell splash screen is displayed, the boot menu will show up. From the Boot Menu, use up-down arrow keys on the keyboard and highlight the CD/DVD/CD-RW and press Enter.You will see another menu, select "Boot from Cd-Rom" and press enter to select it. The system will boot up from the CD-Rom. Please note that this settings is only for one time boot, once the system is restarted, the boot sequence will be restored to the previous saved settings. If you wish to set it from the Bios, enter the Bios settings by hitting F2 or Delete (should be shown at the bottom of the Dell splash screen) while you see the Dell Splash Screen. In the Bios settings menu, go to Boot options and make the changes with the boot sequence.


Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

I want to reformat my computer, my question was how to first boot my cd rom to install...


Start your computer.
When you see the 'Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP mode", press the 'DEL' key.
Change the "boot-order" to put your CD-ROM as the "first" (highest-priority) boot-device.
Save-and-exit from BIOS setup.
Insert the disk into the CD-ROM.
Your computer should boot from the disk in the CD-ROM.

Trying to boot from windows CD and not working


If its the full windows xp cd by booting it from the cd drive it will erase everything and ask if you want to upgrade or advanced install I think. Your correct in choosing the atapi cd-rom as 1st boot device. The cd should be in the drive on startup. IDE is the type of hard disk drive. I'm guessing the FDD stands for floppy disk drive which you might not have that many but you have that many bay windows available.

Put disk in, shut down computer, Start computer and it should give you the xp disk contents. Be aware of data loss though.

I am trying to replace the hard drive in emachine 500is. Now the computer will not recoginize the cd rom to read the windows xp set up disk.


Go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, change the first boot device to CDROM.

How?
To go into BIOS Setup you start tapping either the DELete key, or the F2 key, ->Right After you see the eMachines logo. If you miss this window of opportunity, simple press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys, At The ->Same Time.
This will restart your computer. Try again.

If you try the DELete key, and this wasn't the proper key, then use the above, restart your computer, and press the F2 key -> As Soon As You See the eMachines logo.

In the BIOS Setup main menu, look across the top for Boot Options. You cannot use your mouse to navigate around in BIOS Setup, you have to use your keyboard. Press the Right Arrow key to highlight Boot Options, then press the Enter key.

Your BIOS Setup may be different for this model. You may have to go down to Advanced BIOS Settings, in the main menu, and highlight it. Use the Down Arrow key to highlight Advanced BIOS Settings, then press the Enter key.

In the Advanced BIOS Settings sub-menu, look down the list for ->Boot Options. Use the Down Arrow key, and highlight it, then press the Enter key.
In the Boot Options sub-menu, you will see a list of boot devices. Floppy Disk drive, CDROM, HDD, (HarDDrive, or really -> HarDDisk), and perhaps a fourth one.

Use the Down Arrow key and highlight ->CDROM. Look down at the bottom of this menu, and see what the Navigation keys are. It won't state -> Navigation Guide, but that's what it is. You want the -> Change Value, keys.
It may be +/-, or Page Up/Page Down. (Plus + key, or Minus - key)

Using the Change Value key, move CDROM to the top of the list. (You have to hold the Shift key down in order to use the + key)
You may have to highlight the device on top of CDROM, and change value of it, in order to get CDROM to come to the top. Keep moving the boot devices, until CDROM is at the top of the list.

After CDROM is at the top, press the Enter key.
Now press the F10 key to save the changes you made. Now press the y key, and then the Enter key.
If you do not press the F10 key, and then the y key, it will be like you have done Nothing at all!
You haven't saved changes.

You may also have the words -> YES, and NO listed, instead of the Y key. (It's shown as a capital Y for clarity. Press the y key. Do Not hold the shift key down, and press the y key)
You can either use the appropriate side arrow key to highlight -> Yes, or just press the y key.
Now press the Enter key. Your computer will restart.

Your computer will now look in your CDROM drive for a boot disk. (It can be a CD drive, CD burner drive, or DVD drive, or burner)

IF, you do not have the Windows XP disk in your optical drive, or IF you did not get it in your optical drive before the computer booted up, don't sweat it.
Just make sure the disk is in the drive, and then press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys,
AT THE SAME TIME. Your computer will restart.

Acer Aspire 3610 laptop - Windows XP error


on a friend's Windows 98 SE or Windows ME computer, create a floppy "Startup disk". Insert in your pc floppy drive and turn on. If floppy drive was not accessed, then get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from floppy drive" is set prior to "boot from hard drive". Once at first screen, select "Boot with CD-ROM driver". Insert CD-ROM and initiate entire re-install of Windows. Windows may do some self-restarting. At first restart do this: get to BIOS and ensure "Boot from hard drive" is set prior to "boot from floppy drive".
