Check this Sol'n..

1. Boot(start) ur computer.
2. Press F2 to open up your BIOS Setup
3. Go to boot menu and set the 1st boot order to CD drive using function key. ex. F5
4. Change the SATA settings to IDE. Not
5. Save the new settings using function key before exiting. Ex. F10

It will restart and surely boot on your XP cd (if inserted)..
The rest are typical OS procedure.

Well..your hard disk won't see your cd. insert the cd, and restart your computer. if it doesn't see it then, you most likely will need to go into F2 setup, and 'id the cd' so that your operating system, will see it.

If you are running XP you require SP3 to boot from, that will give you access to Windows Updates.
Otherwise let us know what your OS is.
