|On a new Gateway Desktop.|
BIOS is correct to boot from CD
CD is fine. Other computers WILL boot from the CD.
I have also swapped out the CD Drives...same result.
The CD is the Gateway XP Recovery Disk
But...the computer will not boot from ANY bootable CD (CD's which will boot just fine on other PCs).
It TRIES to boot.
The following line appears on the screen for about 10 seconds:
Verifying DMI Pool Data..........Update Success
Boot from CD: _ (flashing cursor)
But....it will not follow through and boot from the CD.
I try to press ENTER or something at this point ...but the KB does not respond.
After about 10 seconds....it tries to boot from the HD.
Often...there is a "Press any key to boot from CD"...but that DOES NOT appear here.
It is like it is trying to boot from the CD (it does see it)....but then goes back to the HD.
Again...this IS a bootable CD...it will boot on other PC's just fine.
Any help appreciated.
