I want to format the HD of my laptop so I was going to boot from a Win XP cd I have, format the HD, and re-install XP.
When I try to boot from the CD it says "CDBOOT - Cannot boot from CD - Code 1"

I checked the BIOS, everything seems fine. I tried booting from another CD I have and it worked, so I know my comp is capable of it. I have no idea what to do...... Help!!!
