What kind of error are you getting when trying to boot?

No error message at all, It just doesn't start to load. I tried the CD on my desktop and it wouldn't load there either. Don't have a clue what the problem is.

Are you actually getting to the "Press any key to boot from CD" or does it just sit there. I have a newer Toshiba, and if I press F12 it will give me a boot menu to choose from. Do you have this option?

It does say " press any key to continue" but nothing happens. I have tried the F12 and every combo I could think of.

Have you ever been able to boot from CD? Since the CD doesnt boot in your desktop, it is possible that the disk is bad.
