Have an old HDD that I want to reformat however everytime i turn the computer on it will not boot from the OS CD it just skips directly to the HDD and gives me errors(which i know will happen). I went to the recovery fix and when i was searching for driver update i did see that the dvd drive is there which means motherboard recognizes it I also hear it running which so it does try to boot. I went through BIOS and even disabled boot from HDD and it still does it :|.

I did try it on another computer and it worked fine so its not an issue with the disc itself

Change the boot device. Put the cd-drive as first option to boot from.

After doing as Killer525 stated with the optical drive. Try the disk in another PC. It may be damaged and unreadable.

Does your motherboard has any SATA connection?

Why don't you use a drive that uses a SATA connection?
