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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
