Check your BIOS settings and set your CDROM as the first boot device.

Not sure what the problem is...but on the main screen of your BIOS...there should be a screen that reflects the time and any drives connected to the motherboard.

Can you post a picture of that (the entire screen, please)?

Thanks.

Louis

Your Computer is Booting as such, A: Meaning Floppy Drive, Then C: (HDD) CD Rom is not recognised in your BIOS, as a Bootable Drive.

I suggest you change the A:, Floppy Drive Setting to CDROM? Just use your arrow Keys to select it press enter, then use page up or down to select CDRom then press Enter.

If that doesnt do it do the same to HDD Drive? I am not totally conversant with your BIOS but the changes will not Harm. Once completed, press esc and go to Exit and Save Changes.

That should work for you!

:thumbsup:

Do you have the option of flashing your BIOS?

Ummm...that second picture...is not a boot menu, it's the main screen of the BIOS.

Since it does not reflect any optical drive (CD/DVD), I would say that there is a connection or a functionality problem with that drive.

No matter how you set the boot menu (first graphic), it has no impact since the BIOS does not reflect the most basic recognition of an optical drive.

I would check the connections and the jumper setting on that drive.

I'm just trying to say...if you don't have your CD/DVD or hard drives recognized on the FIRST screen in the BIOS, then it doesn't matter what you do with all the rest. You can set all the boot options that you want...but if that drive is not properly recognized on the main screen, nothing is going to happen.

IMO, that's the puzzle that needs to be solved.

Louis
