When I boot it says: No bootable CD-ROM, it the BIOS it does not recognise any CD DRIVES. I have tried a WINXP PRO SP1, a WINXP HOME SP1, and a WIN98 setup disk.
I decided to wipe the drive (it previously had XP HOME, upgraded from WIN98) because it would only recognise CD DRIVES in windows and would not boot CDs even if it was told to do so. I thought reformatting wold solve the problem, obviously not.
I am looking foward to your help and advice, I am sorry if I left out any information and/or if my english grammer/spelling was bad.
