I recently purchased a Lite-On (Slim) LSC-24082K Combo CD-RW/DVD ROM drive and installed it into my 5 year old Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop(actually built by COMPAL) replacing a read only OEM Toshiba SD-C2102 CD/DVD. The laptop Bios has the latest Dell BIOS.
The new drive works great with Nero, but I am now unable to boot from the cd drive. BIOS is set to use the CD before the floppy or hard drive and the Cd’s led flashes at power on. A Knoppix CD-R I burned, boots on other machines ,but will not boot on my laptop and a previously bootable windows install disk no longer boots.
Any thoughts on the cause or suggestions on how to fix this problem
I found later firmware on this site version JK0H , my drive has JK05. Should I flash the firmware??? Any way to determine what was changed in the firmware releases, can’t find any info on Lite-on site.
Thanks in advance for any help.
