Question about ASUS P5GZ-MX Motherboard
As a general rule it's best to set the BIOS to boot first from a CD/DVD drive.In case Windows becomes corrupted it's already set up to boot from your repair disk.
Second is HDD 0.That will be the master hard drive,or the one at the end of a cable select string.
If you have another hard drive that is set up as a boot drive or partition,it can be listed as third.
After that if you still have options you can choose what you want but I don't think anything older than XP supports anything useful not already set up.
I hope that answers your question,if not post back and I'll try again.And if this helps,please rate my post?

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source
Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette
or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.
Note: This error has also been known to occur when a
memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it.
If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory
stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras,
ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer.
If you are attempting to boot
from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is
likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files
or is corrupt.
If you are attempting to install
Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the
computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS
has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run
the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot
device, and not the hard disk drive.
Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.
Press any key to boot from the CD
Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.
If you are not receiving the above message and your BIOS boot options
are set properly it's also possible that your CD-ROM drive may not be
booting from the CD-ROM properly. Verify the jumpers are set properly on
the CD-ROM drive.
