Your Sony CD-RW is an ATAPI CD-ROM for the purpose of your BIOS. Without you specifying the motherboard brand and model, it is hard to tell you what your issue could be.

Nearly all PC motherboards made after 1995 will allow you to boot from the CD. Enter the BIOS setup screen by pressing, during POST, <DEL> or <CTR>-S (Gateway), <F1> or <F2> and look for boot sequence. Some MB's have a boot sequence key you can press to select the boot device for that boot instance only.

If you are trying to say that you have an ATAPI CD-ROM and the Sony CD-RW, then check your master/slave/cable select jumper settings on the device. Each IDE channel can have at most one master and one slave.

    Ok, thanks for the great rating on that. Although I was completely correct on the issue, I shall now reiterate.

    Of course you don't have an option for Sony CRX300e in your BIOS' boot sequence. The BIOS does not read the manufacturer's info when it polls the devices. At best it will say report the exact type of device, such as CD-RW or DVD-ROM or ATAPI CD-ROM.

    Let's get this straight. YOU HAVE ONLY ONE CD type DRIVE and the BIOS reports it as ATAPI CD-ROM. Correct?

    That ATAPI CD-ROM IS your Sony CRX300e. If the computer won't boot from it, try putting a bootable CD or DVD in it. Those in the business recognize that drive as being, what we say, OLD. Try cleaning it.

    Did I mention try putting a BOOTABLE CD or DVD in it?

    Again, thanks for the great rating!

My pc won't boot from cd-rom... Bios recognizes both cd-rom drive and hdd, and boot sequence is set to boot from cd-rom but when it comes to boot from the windows XP install dvd it shows the message...


you are saying two differnt things here.. CDROM and DVD if its a dvd in a CD ROM it will not boot a windows disk if somehow this is written to a DVD Is it original?
Secondly is the Cd ( or DVD drive) actaully working. Being listed in CMOS does not guarantee that.

I know you have listed the drive as DVD but do you have 1 or two drives installed and not have the disk in the recognised drive.; have to eliminatge all possibilities of werror in interpretation here.

So assuming everything appears as it should, then the medial in the drive has to be considered at fault .. dirty disk.. drive needs iris clean, not an original disk, damaged disk, not a boot disk.. just a windows cvopy.;

How do I Access BIOS screen in a IBM PII-6862-84U?


As the computer boots press the DEL key to access BIOS
note: some systems you must press F2 or Esc
In BIOS under the BOOT tab options change the Boot order so that the CD drive is First
Select EXIT and Save Changes to reboot
note: make sure the CD is in the drive BEFORE you reboot!
(it sounds obvious but a lot of people forget)
If the CD is bootable it will start its own boot sequence.

Change boot sequence for HP L2000


Hi,
You need to enter BIOS at startup. The correct key to press will be displayed at the bottom of the black screen when you bootup. Usually, F10, F8 or F11 or Del. Mash them all on booting up.
Now navigate the Bios settings with the arrow buttons and select cdrom as 1st boot device with the enter button. Then Save and Exit.

Fixya!
