Can't Boot From CDRom


Windows Perfectionist
16 Jan 2004
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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
