    Hi



    My boot order are: First hard disk and the second floppy disk. Where can I find the cd-rom boot?

    In my case the BIOS seems it don't care of my modifications. After having saved and exited, the machine don't reboot, I have to power cycle it, and then restart with the old device boot sequence.
    What is wrong with my MOBO?

Thats very simple..
At Startup - Press F2 / Del (Check ur mobo documentation) to enter into bios setup. Under the boot sequence - change the order of CD-ROM boot. Make CD-ROM as a first boot device. HDD-0 as second...
Hit F10, Press Yes & now system restarts. If it finds a bootbale CD, It will prompt you to hit any key to boot from CD..

Hope this helps you my friend...

How do I unlock the Bios on an Acer ES-1 111M Laptop


To boot from a CD, DVD or USB device, make sure that the device has boot sequence priority over the hard drive.

BIOS Boot

BIOS (Basic Input Output Subsystem) is a programmable chip that controls how information is passed to various devices in the computer system. A typical method to access the BIOS settings screen is to press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the boot sequence.
BIOS settings allow you to run a boot sequence from a floppy drive, a hard drive, a CD-ROM drive or an external device. You may configure the order that your computer searches these physical devices for the boot sequence.
The first device in the order list has the first boot priority. For example, to boot from a CD-ROM drive instead of a hard drive, place the CD-ROM drive ahead of the hard drive in priority.
Before you set boot priority for a USB device, plug the device into a USB port.
To specify the boot sequence:
  1. Start the computer and press ESC, F1, F2, F8 or F10 during the initial startup screen. Depending on the BIOS manufacturer, a menu may appear.
  2. Choose to enter BIOS setup. The BIOS setup utility page appears.
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT tab. System devices appear in order of priority.
  4. To give a CD or DVD drive boot sequence priority over the hard drive, move it to the first position in the list.
  5. To give a USB device boot sequence priority over the hard drive, do the following:
    • Move the hard drive device to the top of the boot sequence list.
    • Expand the hard drive device to display all hard drives.
    • Move the USB device to the top of the list of hard drives.
  6. Save and exit the BIOS setup utility.
  7. The computer will restart with the changed settings.

Boot Priority Options

Some computer manufacturers allow you to select the device that contains the boot sequence from a special device selection menu. The example below uses a Dell system board.
To set boot priority using a device selection menu:
  1. When the computer starts to boot up, after the manufacturer's ID screen, press F12 several times. The device selection menu appears.
  2. Use the up and down arrows to select CD-ROM or

Vista will not load from CD


Your computer is probably set to boot to the Hard drive BEFORE the CD rom in the BIOS. Research how to access the "system configuration" or BIOS when your computer first turns on. Search through the BIOS menus and see if there's a place to set the "Boot Order". Change the boot order to boot to the CD Rom before the Hard drive.

  • Shut down your computer. Check your computer manual for the key stroke to get into your BIOS. Typically it is your "F1" or "F2" key.

  • Restart your computer.
  • Press the BIOS key that was indicated in your computer manual. Continue to press the key until the computer enters your BIOS.

  • Once entered in bios look for boot option and set primary boot device.
    Then restart your system

    I have Intel 845 series motherboard & I want to format my PC but when I put xp cd inside & restarts & press enter the boot doesn't start now how could i format ?


    You have to change the BIOS settings to boot from your CD drive. It must have been set to boot from harddisk.
    To do this you have to change the primary boot device from Harddisk to CD drive. When you restart your computer press DEL or F12 or TAB or F1(any one...Depends on your BIOS see manual or try all) to bring bios. In bios go to boot device priority and set the CD drive to boot first.
    Restart your computer, it will boot from CD drive and XP setup will start.

    Hope this will help...cheers:)

    Start your computer.
    When you see the 'Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP mode", press the 'DEL' key.
    Change the "boot-order" to put your CD-ROM as the "first" (highest-priority) boot-device.
    Save-and-exit from BIOS setup.
    Insert the disk into the CD-ROM.
    Your computer should boot from the disk in the CD-ROM.
