Hi, I sure hope someone can help me out   today.  I have been making myself crazy for the last couple of days and it's all over a darn Satellite.  I am trying to install Windows (ANY WINDOWS at this point) on a Toshiba Satellite M55-S141.  I have tried every way I can think of and it's a no go!!  I am at my wits end!  I can't get it to boot from the CD drive.  CD shows up in the BIOS but when I hit F12 it's not in the the list of boot devices.  Is it me or is this darn machine  playing with me????   LOL

Have you tried pressing F2 on the Toshiba splash screen?  According to the link it should tell you which key to press to access the boot menu.  If F2 doesn't work, try F9 or F8.

Yes, of course I did F2.  I set CD as 1st Boot device. Saved.  Then hit the F12 for the Boot menu.  Cd Rom did not even show up in the boot devices.  This is making me crazy.  It didn't make a bit of sense till it struck me .................. could there be something wrong with the CD player??  That is the only thing I can think of at this point.  If that is the case, can i attach an external USB CD Player??  If so how do I do that?  By the way, thanks for your quick reply to this post.  Appreciate it!!!

If it is not showing in the boot menu, that's probably your issue.  Can that machine boot from USB?  If it can boot from USB then you can connect a USB CD drive or create a bootable USB stick with what you need.

I am trying to this type with the darn 'on-screen' keyboard. I need to close this post so I can turn all of your computer knowledge to my baby.  That's the one I care about. Actually I'm a little scared it's something big, but I think it started after I installed some drivers.  Get back to me. Okay?  Thank you.
