If it doesn't boot from cd, temporarily change the cd-rom. Preferably a regular cd-rom or an cdrw.

1.) Insert Bootable CD.
2.) if not booting up, go into the Bios and change the bootable device list to list the CD or DVD drive first
3.) Disk should boot, if not then you have a problem with your CD (try another) or the CD/DVD Drive is not working properly.

Replaced HD and CD Rom drive, PC will not boot to disk, Do I need to format HD 1st. before loading OS?


Hi Get to the bios screen using F8 or F9, change the first boot device to CD ROM/DVD, then insert a bootable disk into the CD drive and try installing the OS first by completely formatting the HD during installation Win XP and higher OS editions give you the option to partition the HDD Hope this resolves

Computer wont boot properly


A POST diags card can help you resolve your problem/s, if not then.
1. remove all devices and insert the floppy drive, one RAM module and video card.
2. Go into the BIOS configuration and set it to the default configuration, check the installed RAM is it correct? .
3. Insert the remainder RAM module/s and check the POST info and BIOS again, has it detected all the RAM?
4. Does the computer Boot up using a floppy boot disk
5. Insert the CD and hard disk and check the POST info and BIOS configuration, does it detect the new drives?
6. Does the computer Boot up using a floppy boot disk, run FDISK, can you see the hard drive, if so delete all partitions (if any) and create a new primary DOS partition and then format the hard drive.
7. Boot up with the Windows CD (may have to change the boot order to the CD as the first boot device).
8. Delete the DOS partition, create a primary NTFS partition and the do a full NTFS format (not a quick format) and continue to install Windows Xp or Vista.
9. Install the other device eg modem, Lan etc. and the drivers.

If you have trouble with the first 5 steps, then you most likely have a faulty motherboard and/or a faulty hard disk.

Dell Dimension 8300 - Can't Boot from XP Disk


When in doubt do without, that is remove the new hard drive cable and power, remove the DVD drive and try loading booting the XP from just this CD device. Enter the BIOS and check if the system sees the device. If it's not found in the BIOS then you'll never boot anything. Address it as the Primary device on the cable (I don't use CS) and see if the BIOS sees it.
If you get CD device seen in the BIOS then try to boot the CD in it. If it boots then power off and connect up your 40gb drive (optioned as Primary) on the other cable. Now power on as check the BIOS for the drive and the DVD device. If both are seen then boot the cd and try to load XP. After it's up and running install the other CD device as a Slave on one of the cables.

Basically you need to go to Bios to change your "Boot device pripority". Please follow these steps to do this.

Please follow these steps to install XP on your PC.

1. Please start your PC with power button. At the very first screen, at the left down corner, you will see the button to be pressed to go to Setup i.e. Bios of the PC. For most of the PCs , it is delete button. For some of them, it is F2 also. So, after starting the PC press Del to go into setup.

2. After you enter setup of the PC, please go to Advance bios setup.

3. There you select Boot device priority.

4. here the first boot device priority should be CD ROM, then the HDD. Please see the instructions given at right down corner and select this priority.

5. After you rightly selected boot device priority as given above, Press F10 to save the changes and then press F12 to exit.

6. Now the PC will restart again, but be sure that you put win XP cd in the drive before it restarts.

7. Now you will see a note that : press any key to boot from CD ROM, so please press any key.

8. The PC will boot from the CD ROM now , now you can follow the instructions given on the screen.

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!
Mike

First insert your cd in the cd/dvd drive and then simply restart the computer and it will boot automatically. If it does not boot automatically then go to boot menu and select cd/dvd to the first in the booting order. It will then boot automatically.
