Cannot boot from cd and run setup


When booting, the writing on the black screen should give you a couple of options akin to

Press F2 to edit boot options or
Press "Del" to enter setup. (bios)

You can use either, but you need to set your CD/DVD disk drive as the first boot option.

Laptop wont boot from cd/dvd drive, hard drive is cleasn, no viru


Hi usavahe.
Booting from CD should be possible.
1) When the laptop first starts to power up, repeatedly press the F12 key. This should bring you to a screen that lets you select the boot device.
2) For the Satellite, it may show icons across the bottom of the screen. You want the one that looks like a CD.
3) It should the start to boot from the Windows CD (if it is indeed a bootable disc) and you will see the message "press any key to boot from cd".
4) Press any key you want on the keyboard and the Windows CD installation process should begin

Hope that helps

DVD not detect at bios. why


if you press enter or space when you have an item highlighted does it not give you the option to add the dvd / cd ?

On some bioses it is there its just that its been disabled as an extra boot device to speed things up so that its not always trying to read or find a cd to boot from so if you press the key it requests you to ( near the bottom of the screen when you are in the bootable devices section ) it will explain how to alter or add them. If you follow the instructions you should be able to add it as a bootable device

If its not detecting any discs in the drive whilst in the bios thats because you need to save the settings in the bios to boot from the cd / dvd and the disc ( cd or dvd ) has to be made bootable and then once the bootable disc is in the cd / dvd drive and you have saved the settings in the bios and restarted it should boot from the disc thats in there.

If you need to make a disc bootable you can either use nlite or you can get guides on how to make a disc bootable if you search google.

Your operating disc and a linux disc(s) are all bootable

Boot a Sony DVD RW DRU-840A drive in DELL precision 530


Have you tried changing the boot order.

If you're trying to use it as a boot device you need to tell the system to boot the cd /dvd drive FIRST and of course you need to have a bootable cd / dvd in the drive.

Let me know if you're already tried this.

The memory could not be read


Boot from your cd rom using your windows cd. Adjust your BIOS setting to boot from cd rom. Follow the instruction carefully. When partition editor screen come, break all partition and resize partition as your choice. Than install windows on drive 'C'. You r done. If you cant boot, try using another bootable cd. Let me know whats next.
