I used to do this all the time but now I can NOT boot from XP CD! I went into my BIOS and set my boot priority #1 to CD ROM. When I restart my PC and it prompts Press Any Key To Boot From CD...I press Enter, Space etc and it doesn't boot! What am I doing wrong? I need help! thanks

Hello nitric

This could be one of many errors, lets see if we can try and eliminate them :)

  • When did this first happen?
  • What were you doing before this started to happen?
  • Is the disc full of scratches?
  • Have you tried to boot off another cd?
Regards

It happen when I tried reformatting after a year.
Well i got a BSOD and whenever I signed into my account it gave me a BSOD after 10-15 seconds. SO i reformatted through the desktop (going into teh admin setting) and I couldn't partition teh C HDD because XP files were written on there. So i continued to install and I have previous files from C in my computer on top of a fresh new XP. I want to completely reformat and doing that I need to boot from start up? and I only have one XP CD
