Hi. my pc can't boot-up on the cdrom. the setup is to boot-up first on the cdrom drive then hdd but it continues to the hdd right away. the win-explorer can see the cdrom drive but can't read any cdrom. i did change the cdrom bec i thought the cdrom was dirty but still the problem remains. i did try to uninstall the IDE 2nd channel and installed itself back, did try to load different type of cd, data/audio/bootable. still the problem exists.
what could be wrong?
thanks.

make sure jumper is set correctly

make sure you are using a known good bootlable cd (test in another box)

Uninstalling ide channel, etc will do no good since it is pre windows

test to see if you can boot from floppy

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
