Will not boot anything from dvd drive Tags: DVD Drives Boot CD-Rom Storage Last response: August 1, 2010 12:54 AM in Storage Share saif1994 July 31, 2010 5:58:38 PM Hi I'm trying to install windows XP on another partition of my hard drive. However, the CD does not boot from the DVD drive. I set CD-ROM drive as first priority in the bios menu and disabled all other boot devices. When I try to boot the CD it says Disk boot failure. Insert system disk and press enter. I noticed that my DVD tray only spins the CD after windows is booted and doesn't spin the CD on system start up. I'm sure that's what I problem is, I need the DVD drive to spin the Boot CD as soon as my computer starts rather then after windows boots up.

If it's a burned disc, try reburning it. m 0 l saif1994 August 1, 2010 12:35:10 AM lol that was really stupid of me... Problem solved. Instead of selecing CD-ROM as my boot drive, I selected the other option that was my dvd drive. It was called Realtek DVDRW... Somthing like that. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
