Operating system: Windows XP Home
Original description: AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core 3800+, 1GB, 250GB 7200RPM S-ATA HDD, no diskette drive, PCI/PCIe Tower (4x4), NVIDIA GeForce 6100, Multi-Burner Plus 16x, Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet, 56K modem, USB Memory Card Reader, Windows XP Home
Above are my system specs. I would like to upgrade to XP Pro x 64 but am unable to boot from the CD. I have the latest version of the BIOS installed and have tried changeing the boot order. The BIOS looks at the CD, it spins up for a few seconds and then proceeds to boot XP from the HDD. I have Ubuntu 9.10 desktop (iso burned with InfraRecorder) but have not tried booting with it yet. Not sure how my hdd is set-up so I'm hesitant to try booting the ubuntu CD.
Is it possible that this is somehow built into the BIOS? I know the drive works.
Thanks for any assistance.
