      Change the boot order in the BIOS to:

      CD
      Hard disk
      Floppy
      Network

      Can you clarify how far it does get when booting?

      If you want to try to find the problem, search on Google for the “Bootvis” program. It will tell you EVERY SINGLE bit of info during boot. You can find out why it is locking up on you.
      Other than that, then I agree with the first 2 answers.
