I am unable to boot my system through cdrom drive

Posted by on

  • afackrell Jun 22, 2008

    My old compaq's operating system is dead. I don't have the original disks and have tried various programs to reformat and reinstall win 98. It just keeps saying "non system disk. Remove and try again." When I first got it it said there was a system file missing. After my atempts to "fix" it I've got nothing. Any hope ?

Is the bios set to Boot to the cdrom? Enter the bios, go to Boot. Move cdrom to number 1. Save & exit.

    You seem to have a trouble understanding booting through a cdrom drive. With these, MSI KM4M-L Motherboard & EliteGroup ECS 755-A2 Mb. If your operatng system fails to start you can boot to safe mode by pressing F5 during boot up. If you want to boot to a cdrom, floppy, Hd or DVD/cdrom you press F8 during boot up and pick your device. You can not boot to your operating system by going through your cdrom drive. You can boot to a bootable CD/DVD but again that will NOT get you into your operating system. If your operating system will not load and you need to get the data on it off, than I suggest you put it into a working PC as a slave for a IDE drive & get your data off it. There are other options if your O/S is windows 98 or 98.

Restore will not work comp goes thru the motions and comes back with unable to restore, it doesn't matter how far back you go


Hi, I believe you need to reinstall your operating system, follow these instruction:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To install new version of XP. Insert XP CD into drive, reboot pc pressing F1 button.. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary boot device to CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this appears and wait for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive you wish to use for your operating system (usually the largest) and select partition this drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be aware this removes everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first) Re boot afterwards and reinstall operating system.
Hope this helps

Getting problem in formatting the IBM PC


check if the cable from the cd rom connected to your ibm pc if its ok , also check the master, slave configuration pins into the back of your cdrom. make sure that theres no conflict between the hard disk and the cdrom. Your cd rom may probably cannot be detected. make sure that it is working first. then install the hard disk. The hard disk must be in primary master and the cd rom must be in primary slave. then try booting it to your cd rom. also, try checking if your windows xp setup disk is bootable, it means that it can boot from cd rom. PM me if you have other experiences after doing what i adviced. Thank You.. heres my email. jmizpahadonai777@gmail.com

Can't boot with Cd-Rom unable to install windows XP


Well, maybe I can try, thus in your bios setting you can boot using usb cdrom? Or maybe its time to change your cdrom drive already. If you can borrow a good spare cdrom. Take this in for the meantime in exchange for your installed cdrom. Maybe your cdrom drive is faulty. Then if this is ok, it is now easy for you to get on.

Second option, you can take out your harddrive prime it, then have a partition (say d:\) with a copy of full copy of xp installer, and other important installer just have it foldered. Then I assume you can boot using a floppy drive with win98 rescue disk. After booting goto harddrive partition with xp installer. then click setup and set it up in c:\ . Then your go other software, installed it manually.

I do this coz it much faster to installed using harddrive and also it is only in xp.

Hope this helps. comments if I miss something.

Unable to boot win xp cd. not detected by compaq presario 5000 series interneal cd rom LTN 403 DQ24


Drive requires cd drivers to run Boot CD.
Some versions came with floppy disk to start cdrom drives, This will also require a floppy drive.

You may also try hitting f10 to enter bios setup make sure cdrom is bootable.

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.
