Im trying to set up windows XP on another computer I have here and when I put the XP cd in the cd rom and wait for it to get to the part where its loading from cd and you press any key, this error comes up

CDBOOT : Error booting from cdrom drive CODE : 5

Or something simmilar anyways (might not be exact)
What can I do about this? Any help would be great! Thanks

Thanks for the link... although it was no helpbut thanks anyway!

I found the problem after the Bio's was too old to reconize the ntfs os disk so I had to do a bios upgrade from AOpen. Aparently this is a common problem with AOpen boards

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
