Boot CD Will Not boot

Im having problems with my bood cd’s…


Problem one (pc one)

I have set the boot order to my CD/DVD Rom is first and when i insert the dvd it still does not detect it. it does not do this on any other pcs i have fixed in the past.

It just says “Press R to recover your system, In X seconds” (It says this either if i have the boot disk is in or not)


Problem Two (PC two)

When i insert the CD and put Boot via DVD/CD rom. it says press any button to boot from CD/DVD…

But when i do it does not do anything. Keyboard is fine etc. it just skips it. it looks like its going to load but doesnt.


Please help me guys

Hi daveff
Welcome to the MyCE forum :flower:

Have you checked all the connections on the drives ? also are the drives showing in BIOS ? another thing you might try and that is to reset the BIOS to it’s default settings.

hi fella, thank you.

They are both laptops so i think the connections wud b okay.

Yeah i have tryed settin to defaut settings but, still does the same… i dont know why this happens =/

Both laptop hmmm, have you tried switching the drive from another laptop that does not have this issue ? I mean it;s not uncommon for faulty drives in laptops due to excessive heat or just gone belly up.

Is this a boot CD/DVD that you burned or a commercial install CD/DVD?
Is it a Windows OS disk? Have you tried any other bootable CD/DVD like any linux distro?

check the disk info in nero or other burning softare you used.
it iwll say if the dvd /cd is bootable or not.
it must have burnt disk atonce mode.
also some drives treat it as a cd in the absence of a windows or some system.
you can make sure using a bootable cd in the drive.
