Boot problems


Hello Everyone,

I've burnt myself cd images of Suse to install on an old computer that I had laying around. My problem is as follows; When I proceed to install the OS by booting the first cd during boot time my cd-rom does not startup the Suse installer and just craps out and goes to Windows.

Now its not because I didn't change the boot sequence in my bios.
Also, the cds itself works on other systems.

If anyone has any ideas to why your cd-rom wouldn't be able to boot a cd during boot time, give me a few suggestions.


Thanks.

Will the cd drive boot to any other bootable cds? Like your Windows install cd?

If the cd works elsewhere, and other cds won't boot in the box, then it sounds like a hardware isssue.

There are also ways to use grub on a floppy disk to boot the cd.
