ANYONE HELP ME!! WON'T BOOT FROM DVD-ROM!! Tags: Motherboards Boot CD-Rom Hard Drives Last response: May 18, 2009 10:06 PM in Motherboards Share seffaulmino April 30, 2009 12:43:09 AM I have a D946GZAB I want to reformat and install Windows XP Sp2 on my computer. I can't boot from CD-ROM!! I put the CD-ROM as first to boot... though it doesn't say "press any key to boot from cd..." It still boots directly to the hard disk... the CD-ROM is IDE and the Hard disk is SATA. I set the CD-ROM to master IDE, I'm sure the CD_ROM can read the CD because I can access it's files when I boot the current OS on the Hard disk. Help!!! Please?? I need an answer immediately!! X_X Thanks!! Any help or suggestions are appreciated!!!
