I cant get my Comp To Boot from CD Tags: Configuration Boot CD-Rom Windows XP Last response: January 11, 2013 1:04 PM in Windows XP Share Bigolkevin January 10, 2013 9:48:13 PM Hello, I have had it boot from CD before, but this time it says there is no boot device available. I think it might be because I installed a 30 day activation windows xp. Now the XP is telling the CD drive not to boot? the PC is a Dell Optiplex G280 More about : comp boot mzaf January 11, 2013 5:46:33 AM No, if you have a boot able CD it will boot always. If it is not booting and you are confirm that your CD drive is working fine then the CD has became faulty. sub-optimal January 11, 2013 1:04:55 PM boot order changed since last time u booted from disk? check boot order in bios setup, make sure boot from cd is still at the top of the list...if its not, then there's ur problem example of boot list in bios setup (F2) cd/dvd drive perf device (usb) HD LAN Can't find your answer ?
