Unable to respond to 'Boot from cdrom' message

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.

BoB :pfff:

  1. So even if you mash the keys on the keyboard while that message is displayed... it still boots from the HD?
  2. That is a common problem when using a usb keyboard. Try looking for at legacy usb option in your bios
  3. or get a ps2 keyboard
