Question CD-Rom doesn't boot


Hello

My problem is this :

I have installed on a server Asterisk Home edition. I want to install Asterisk Business Edition + Linux.
I have a (bootable) cdrom from signate with Linux and Asterisk on ti. If I try to boot from my CDROM (BIOS settings are set) the server boots from the HDD (Asterisk Home).

If I put the CD in my laptop and reset, the laptop boots from the CDROM.

I put in a other cdrom player in the server. Same thing.
So, does anyone know how i can solve this or what the problem is ?

Thanks in advance !

Lionel

You may have done this but look for something about boot order. Set cdrom before harddrive.
