half installed windows
I tried to reinstall windows so i could dual boot and then lost the XP cd so i had to buy a whole new one. but now all it tells me is that i should insert the original CD. It will not boot from CD any more. I just said F it and put in BT4 prefinal and it will not let me boot from CD. I don't know if this is the right place to post but i need some help. thanks.
Very good friend of the forum
Enter your BIOS and make sure that:
Your optical drive is recognized. (maybe a cable came loose)
Your boot device has CD-ROM enabled.
Your boot priority is CD-ROM first Hard Disk second.
