For CD Rom or DVD disks


Open the software that you use to burn or write files to the CD-rom or DVD drive.

Click on "Make a Data CD or DVD." Insert a blank CD-R or DVD-R disk into the drive.

Look for the option to "Make this disk bootable." You may have to scroll over the various icons displayed to find this option. Click on the option.

Burn the CD or DVD as usual. Once completed, this disk can be used to boot your computer.

hope this helps

How do i format my laptop off of the partition on the hard drive. I've managed to hit f 10 and get into the bios but no format option was given


Formatting the hard drive is not a function of the BIOS. You will need to boot the machine from either the Windows CD and do a fresh setup (which will give you the option to format the hard drive) or boot from a bootable CD or floppy disk that has the format command on it. From there you execute the format command and follow the directions.

The cd/dvd drive is not working in my hp dv9205 us notebook pc. what can i do?


Reinstalling Windows is a bit extreme...
However you could try to access the BIOS and look around to see wether the drive is detected or not. If that's too complicated, you could try to boot from a bootable CD. If it boots, it's a Windows error and you should see if there are any error messages when a CD is inserted and post them here.
If it doesn't boot, you could try to open the case and check wether power cables are connected properly to the drive, and wether the drive<-->moterboard connection is attached properly.
