Question about Lenovo 3000 C100 Notebook
Hard Drive on laptop seems to be dead, so I'm trying to use a bootable CD to pull files from the disk (if it is not truly dead), before replacing the disk. I have a bootable CD (boots fine on a Dell ), but the Lenovo will not boot using that CD. I have changed the boot sequence to go to the CD first. I hear the CD spin, but the sequence then flips to the HDD which then fails. The Bios / Sys Informatio shows that the CD Drive is Disabled. Is this the reason for it not booting?
Hello brush71, it most likely is.
I suggest going to BIOS and trying to enable the cd drive.
If not possible, perhaps there is a hardware failure.
As you've described a problem with the Hard-Drive as well, I would suggest, if warranty is still applicable, to turn to your nearest Lenovo lab and have the computer fixed.

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 CD-ROM. First verify that no CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a CD.
