I have this Emachine and I cant get it to boot to a disc for the life of me. I have only done this a million times and its got me stumped. I have set it on bios to boot to disc then HD. No matter what I do it will only boot straight up to windows XP Home. I even set both boots to the cd/dvd rom and it then will come up and say system disc error please insert system disc and hit enter. I can even hit F10 on startup which goes to boot menu select cd/dvd drive and it still boots to the OS. The disc is good I tried it in my laptop and I've also tried a few other OS disc I have and will not boot to anything. Can someone help please any ideas?
