You usually dont have to change the boot order to boot from a cd. the bios should check the cd rom before booting from the hdd. However, if that isnt the case, you can always change the boot order.

go to the bios settings while u turn your laptop on. (It should be "esc" for HP. a message will be displayed at the bottom of the screen indicating the key. if not, try esc, f10, f11, f12. either one of them should work).

go to the boot order settings (May have a different name- boot settings/ boot priority settings/ advance boot options etc.).

Boots only to bios settings, then blank screen after save and exit. will not take a cd boot.


Hello, since it can boot to bios setting, then have you try configuring the boot order,the cd drive should come first,after that your hard disc, if the hard drive comes before the cd rom then it would not recognise it. Change the settings and Save this settings, then try to boot from the cd again, if this does not work then i am rest assured that your hard drive has a problem,and you need to find solution to it by getting a new one. cheers Regards

How can i change first boot device cd rom to dvd rom


Hi,

To change your boot device you must change the setting in you BIOS.

To do this restart your computer and press delete repeatedly.
When you are in the BIOS search for Boot Priority within the different tabs.
To set you DVD Drive as the boot device make sure it replaces the CD Drive.
Set the DVD Drive as the first priority and your Hard drive as the second boot priority.
Save the settings and exit.

This will enable you to boot from your DVD Drive if a bootable disc is present in the drive.

Let me know if this solution was helpful!

Regards

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:)

System reboot


Depending on what bios it has it may not show the cd drive. All you can do is set it to auto or if it has the option to cd or atapi. Then set the boot order so that the cd is looked at before the hard drive and you should then boot off of the cd.

Changing Boot Set Up


you need to go to the bios setting, upon switching on you need to press delete to enter to the bios setting (note: some motherboards uses either F1 or F2 or F10 defends on your MOBO) then go to boot set up, select the first boot device as the cd rom then save and exit (F10)

My toshiba satellite a50, i want to change boot order to cd drive


You need to go into the bios or utility set up. At start up there will be a Toshiba screen, on this screen at the bottom, it will read something like, esc to enter bios, or F1 to enter bios, F10 to enter boot menu, at this point you will need to press which ever it says to go into bios. Bios can also be refereed to as utilities or utility set up. Now, if you change the boot order in the bios, it will always check the CD drive before the hard drive. If you only want or need to boot from the CD drive this one time, then you will need to go into the boot menu at start up. When you get to the boot menu, it will give you a list, then you choose CD drive. If you go the boot menu route, be sure the CD is in the drive when you select CD drive, otherwise it will see there is no CD and skip straight to the hard drive. Keep in mind that on some machines it blows right past the Toshiba screen, so you may have to try a couple of times or just be quick to make your selection as to bios or boot menu.

My pc was doing this but now it's doing something different but simular


Try telling it to boot the CD instead of the disk for now, since you need to install from that...or perhaps a newer OS.
