Problem with installation

Hello,
Hello,

My operating system was crashed last week and I tried to install windows XP. I set the CD Drive first in booting order and restarted the computer with XP CD into the drive. Unfortunately, the system does boot from CD Drive.

Note: I have made sure that there is no problem with CD Drive or Windows XP CD. And also, I have enough experience with windows installation in normal case. I had done every possible thing to made it well. But, still I couldn't. So, could you please give me any idea?

Thanks
Thilee

    This is the part that confuses me....what is the problem? If you set the CD drive as the first boot device (fine), what is wrong??
  2. Remove HDD and all other boot options in the bios - leave it JUST with the optical drive, make sure you're in attendance at the keyboard, because Win XP asks you to press a key to boot from CD.

    When Win XP setup reboots after installing - change bios back to boot off HDD.

    Hope this helps.

    Sorry!!! I made mistake over there: It must be as follows

    "Unfortunately, the system does not boot from CD Drive."
  4. make sure you select the cd room as your first boot at the bios settings, make sure also that your cd room is detected in the bios if not, you won't go into installation... make sure all of that is working..... hope it works...
