Hi,
the boot device setup in the bios, if you set atapi-cd rom as first boot device. then hdd second. and fdd last.
it appears that you have a faulty connection from the IDE ( 40-80 wire cable ) that runs from the motherboard Primary/secondary slot. check the cable goes from motherboard to hard-drive and is connected firmly, also check the jumper blocks ( small white plastic block ) is set to master or slave on both devices ( cd-hard-drive ) if both on same cable set hard-drive to slave and CD rom to master. if they are both set as master or slave, they will conflict with each other.
if you need further help, please mail back.

Gigabyte G41MT-S2P can't boot on cd/dvd rom (installing win7)


If both the HDD and the CD/DVD drive contain bootable devices, the BIOS will usually ask just before starting the HDD boot, while still on the black screen, "Press any key to boot from CD". If you don't watch for this (it's usually at the very bottom or top of the screen), then the system will boot to the HDD.

I have hp compaq nx 9020 and I installed linux as my only os, but now I want to change my os to xp but bios says "no boot file name recived" how to fix this?


It seems as if you have some of your boot priorities out of skew, specifically having booting through your network connection as a higher priority. In order to fix this, you need to go into your bios settings and rearrange the boot settings so that booting from LAN is either disabled or not the top priority and making booting from CD or HDD the top priority.

Need to reconfigure start up on IBM computer. Windows xp at present, want to put Ubuntu on instead. When I press F8, I get safe mode options etc. Need to get to page before this, re: make cd drive the...


to make cd/dvd drive the primary one..all u gotta do is to configure the bios(press DEL/F1/F2/F10 briskly, as applicable while at the system boot, this'll enter u in the CMOS utility, search for boot Device Priority)..make cd/dvd drive the primary or 1st boot device n 2nd device @ HDD 0..

download n install any boot manager (various are available)..eg. Power quest Boot Magic..it'll b quite useful when u wanna selective startup using Multiple OS like win xp pro sp2+ubuntu..

the best is to install ubuntu first in raw/undefined hdd space next go for xp..

always better to seek professional supervision of ur System admin/vendor....

Reboot windows XP


This problem might occur because "USB 4" might be a bootable device. To prevent "USB 4" from booting, Enter your BIOS and go to the 'boot priority' section.
Set it in this order: 1. CD/DVD Drive 2. Removable Devices 3. HDD.
IF that does not work, place HDD as the second priority and Removable Devices as the third.

To enter your bios, Hit F2, F12, or Delete repeatedly. I am not sure which key it is for your motherboard, but hitting all those buttons should do the trick.

Lg tower pc


Hi,

you need to go into bios at startup, press F2 Or Delete Or Esc on bootup. When you get into the System Bios. Change the boot device priority from HDD To CD/DVD To boot first.
Save/exit And when you reboot ( with windows XP in the Drive ) you,ll get options to format or re-install.

System is no boot neither with cd-rom nor hard disk


Hi, Based of your post/description and assuming not hardware problem, you may have to set up the priority boot device in the BIOS to CD. This will tell your mb to look for a boot medium from the cd first. This is normally in the Advance Setup/1st Boot Device. Of course soon as installed, you have to boot from the HD next time. Good luck and kind regards.
