Can you boot into safe mode?

System manufacturer and model?

Did you set your boot order in the bios to boot from CD? Also Most systems have a key combination to access the boot menu when starting up like F12 for instance.

Are you using a factory cd or a copy? Have you tried other bootable cds?

There are some forum rules here which have been designed to keep members from being given solutions for bypassing security measures, but what you find when you Google is none of our business.:whistle:

Maybe I should have stated about the copy of the OS, it would need to be a copy of the actual system disk for your computer. Also sometimes if your cd will not boot you can create an ISO image of the scratched cd and burn it and it will work. Again you have to use the correct disk, not a pirated version.

In order to boot from a disc it has to be a ISO file. The boot order in the BIOS will also have to be set so the the CD/DVD-ROM is the first device in the boot order.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
