Reinstall the OS. This will load the appropriate drivers for the cd.

Check the properties dialogue box on the cd-rom from device managers and make sure you have no conflicts.if anything you can fix this by using the recovery disk

If you are unable to boot into Windows, boot into safe mode. Once in Safe Mode, go into Control Panel--->System--->Device Manager. Select the entry in Device Manager that relates to your CD-ROM drive and click on "Properties" and select the DriverTab. Click on the update driver button and allow Windows to search for a driver for the CD-ROM.

go to device manager and delete the CDROM device. Reeboot and it should reinstall properly. If no cdrom is detected you need to make sure it is plugged in ok or the bios settings are set to auto on that IDE channel in the first page of the bios. Also delete the statements in the autoexec.bat and config.sys that refer to the cdrom drive (or put rem in front of them)to disable dos mode.

Some older CD-ROMs plain and simply will not be detected by Windows. You will need to install the DOS drivers. Once the DOS drivers are setup Windows will see the CD-Rom.
