windows xp not getting formatted
Posted 12 December 2012 - 12:25 PM
The cdrom may not be initializing soon enough.

Replacement of the cdrom drive itself.
Test the cd in another system to see if it works when booting up.

i just checked the boot priority order its first is cd rom,second is hard disk,third is disabled..
and mine is a internal cd rom..
Jut for checking go to the BIOS again and see if you can set the boot order for the CD-ROM in all the tree options, some bios allow you to do this if you can only reorder the entry's then disable all except the first one for the cd-rom.
Just for the record in my work I came across with several CD-ROM drivers that lost the ability to boot they just read the disks fine in windows but no boot!
