Get into your BIOS

by rdaugherty In reply to WinXP PC not booting

Usually you can get into your BIOS with the F2 key during bootup. Once you get in, look for the boot sequence section and make sure your PC is set to boot from the CD drive first. This should allow you to boot from your XP CD.

Try Ultimate Boot CD

by BorgInva In reply to WinXP PC not booting

v3.4

Overview
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

Download
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html
Scroll down to "Mirrors (UBCD Full)" and use either PlanetMirror.com or MajorGeeks.

I used it a few weeks ago and with all the tools it had, took time, but I used its burner to backup stuff, repair my drives, repair my partitions, and I was golden.
