Re: i am not able to boot from cdrom of my system

Enter pc bios. can you see your cdrom listed in the MAIN menue? Goto Boot. Set your cdrom to first boot device.
Make sure you have a bootable CD in the cdrom. Still can't boot to the cdrom? Think about swapping it out or getting a new one.

Operating system not found

Ensure your BIOS settings are allowing the HDD to be a boot device, preferably in first position in this case. (possibly F12 available for quick boot device setting) otherwise F1 on power up.
Try booting with CDROM pulled. Also remove HDD, inspect & brush pins with an old toothbrush and some IPA or WD40.
Failing that, get a copy of Linux Puppy ver 4 onwards on CD (free download & burn at a UK library) and boot your laptop (set at F12 for CDROM). If you can browse your HDD it may have a boot sector problem - you will need a copy of PART244.exe or FDISK on a CDROM to check further.

I cannot boot windows xp

Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!

Gigabyte Slot 1 GA-6BXC Start Up UnStable

I recommend that you formatt your HDD to a FAT32 system probably by using another pc then you should also ensure that your bios is setup for the appropriate operating system. maybe just download the appropriate bios files off the gigabyte web site.

K8 Neo-2 V-2.0

Please connect jPw1 to 4 Pin 12v, this supplies power to CPU. Than enter Bios & find Boot settings. Set the cdrom as boot 1 & hd as boot 2. Check the jumper on the cdrom, as it is the only device on secondary IDE controller it should be set as a master.
It is better to install a fresh copy of windows with a new motherboard. Put your windows CD in the cdrom & the system will boot to it. And your on your way. You can install the drivers for the board after windows has been installed.
Plaease vote..
