I recently resurrected a Toshiba Laptop Satellite A60. I began installation of Win XP (following reformat of hard drive) and after loading Windows files, eventually it came up with the message;


Boot CD-Rom Type: CD-ROM/Non-Emulation Booting

Press any key to boot from CD......


Unfortunately, tapping any key on the keyboard bought no response at all. I plugged in a USB keyboard with the same response  :smash:


HELP! Where to now?

Did you try changing the BIOS settings for just booting to CDROM? have you tried pressing the spacebar to boot to cdrom
