Unable to respond to 'Boot from cdrom' message Tags: Windows XP Boot CD-Rom Keyboards Last response: August 27, 2007 4:22 AM in Windows XP Share boot_hill374 August 25, 2007 2:48:14 PM I am attempting to load a pc with Windows XP from a bootable cd. The pc previously had Linux Ubunto on it. Although I get the message 'Boot from cdrom' I cannot enter anything via my keyboard. I know the cd is good because I managed to load XP from it onto another pc. I also know the keyboard works because I am allowed to change bios settings etc. Any help would be appreciated.
