I bought a new Dvd burner a few days ago. I started using it and everything was fine until i tried to boot my pc with a xp installation cd. I changed the boot order so it looked on the dvd drive first but it just skips the cd boot as if it wasn’t a booteable cd.
I have tried with several booteable cd’s and i have the same result: it just says “looking boot from cd… not found” and it starts the OS normally; so basically it just ignores the cd boot.
I have partially found a solution. I disabled the boot from HD and other devices except the Dvd drive and it firsts checks the dvd drive and the same “looking boot from cd… not found” appears. Then it asks for a booteable device to be inserted and press enter (because as i said i disabled the rest of devices). What i do is press ESC key and then it looks for a boot on the cd again and now it does boot from the cd.
It’s really weird. This is the first time i have a problem like this. I hope you can help.
