I have win 7 on hp elitebook 8530p and i got the 0xc000000e error and i changed my boot order and i still cant boot from my cd rom


If you take the hard drive out, can the laptop boot from its DVD drive? If the laptop can boot up from DVD drive, then you need to reformat the hard drive before you install the Windows 7 using your DVD drive.

How do I reformat my PC


Your PC may already be set to boot from the CD/DVD Drive as the first drive. If it's not you need to change it to boot from the CD/DVD Drive.

You may have to go in to the Bios to set the first boot device as CD /DVD.
To do that switch on and immediately press the Delete (Del) key or F2 or whatever key it says on the very first screen to enter the Bios.

You might have an option on the first screen to enter a Boot menu instead of the Bios where you can select which drive to boot from.
Sometimes it's F10 or F11 or F12.

When it's set to CD/DVD put the Windows disk in the drive and reboot. Then you should get an an option to "Press any key to boot from the CD DVD" it only lasts about 5 seconds, if you miss it, it will automatically start to load you current version of Windows from the hard drive. If you don't catch it in time just reboot and do it again.
Then follow any other instructions you get as it installs Windows.

If the same thing happnes on another PC then it is the CD/DVD that is faulty, however if it works, then you can try to hook up a external drive, the laptop may defualt to it after trying all the other options i.e. CD rom drive, HDD etc

SET THE LAPTOP TO BOOT FROM USB or what ever connection you are using to conect the external drive to the laptop. setting it to boot from cd will look for an internal drive
