Cannot boot from cd rom drive


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:

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.

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.

Some computers allow you to select an alternate boot device by pressing the F12 key as you boot up.
If your computer doesn't have this option then go into the BIOS configuration and change the boot order and make the CD-ROM the first boot device and the hard drive the second boot device.

Unable to run Auto Installation Support CD, or Boot System

Is the new motherboard the same model with the one you have replaced. If so, there should have no problem on it. If it is different model, then you have to reconfigure the software installed such as the driver. your new motherboard surely has the CD included where the necessary software should be installed. But, the problem is that you cannot get to the WindowsXP screen..

Windows XP CD is also bootable.. Now in the bios setup there is a portion there that tells about on how to boot whether in drive a, hard disk or cd. Choose CD and inser the bootable Windows XP. In that way you should be able to get to the XP screen. Of course, you have to restart it to make the necessary changes but before that make sure you have saved the changes youve made to the bios setup.

Now if youre able to go to the main screen, uninstall software that are with your old motherboard and install the new one.

Hope to solve your problem.
