My cd rom is working fine. It is able to burn files also with win7 software. I want to repartition and reinstall the software. System does not boot from cd. I even changed the bios where all the three...


On some models this prompt reads Press F12 for boot menu. On others, it may say Press C to boot from CD-ROM. On still others, there may be a row of colored icons representing the various boot devices (HDD, FDD, CD, LAN, PCMCIA, etc.) Press F12 while these icons are displayed, and then use the arrow keys to move the cursor from one to another. As new models are released, the wording of these prompts may change.

Immediately after pressing the power-on button, press the hotkey for the device from which you wish to boot:

We buy a new computer and we are going to set up an O.S. what would be d 1st step


Well, the Ist step is to enter the setup by pressing delete as the system turns on. Now choose BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY and make the Ist preference CD ROM and second one HDD. Now press F10 to save and quit. When the system restarts, it will ask you to press any key to boot from CD. Then you will have to press a key within 3 seconds.

After one round of copying completes, the system restarts itself. On restarting, again press delete and make the BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY as it was earlier i.e; HDD Ist and CD ROM second. Press F10 again and upon auto restarting, the installation will resume and complete itself.

Hope this one solved your problem. If you have additional doubts, please come back to us.


Regards
Sunny.

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

My pc was doing this but now it's doing something different but simular


Try telling it to boot the CD instead of the disk for now, since you need to install from that...or perhaps a newer OS.

I can't use HDD sata on mainboard ASUS P5RD1-VM


Things need to be turned on in your bios patrohi. This is why windows didn't boot to the SATA. You need to use your manual & make sure the, Serial ATA Controller is [Enabled]
Within the Advanved menue under SouthBridge Configuration.
At the Main menue the SATA drive should be listed.
Boot settings need to change as well. At Boot Settings Configurations. Make sure your SATA drive is listed.
Boot order should list like, Floppy 1st, CDROM 2nd, SATA 3rd. The SATA will not list as a SATA but the model number of the SATA drive. Once all these settings are set save & exit. Your drive should show up for work & the windows CD should load.
