|We have working bootable dvd disc(s) that were created on recent hardware (2008-2010). This same media will not work/run in an older machine running the following:|
Main Board: Tyan Tiger MP(X)
Optical device: Liteon - LTD163D
First Boot device: CD-ROM
Second boot device: Primary Master HDD
there are other dvd devices we have tried in this same machine that refuse to boot using known working bootable dvd media. Example contents of two (2) such discs are originals from MicroSoft: Windows-XP and Win-7; they just will not boot on this machine.
In addition, on the same machine with an already installed windows-XP, when we login to the OS > insert the bootable dvd media that refuses to boot on this same machine, thereafter click on the DVD drive to view the contents = doesn't happen. The mouse blinks with an hours glass, but never opens an explorer window to reveal the contents of the bootable dvd media.
Finally, when we insert a dvd movie disc, no problems.
