Boot from CD-ROM

By Bu Jaas ·
I have configured my PC boot sequence as 'removable media', followed by 'atapi cd-rom', followed by 'hard disk'. However, if I insert a bootable CD-ROM it will not boot from the CD. The CD-ROM drive is a slave on the secondary IDE channel along witha HD as master and another HD (alone) on the primary IDE channel. My CD is bootable on other PCs.

Thanks. I had tried that before but it didn't work. I've actually changed my configuration now. I no longer have a need for the second slower HD and, therefore, I have removed it. I've made the CD-ROM as the Secondary IDE Master and all is working OK.
