    explain....
    the CD isn't booting, or....
    your PC isn't booting from a CD?

    have you set the BIOS to boot from CD-ROM?
    is this a retail Windows(?) disc?
    what OS are we talking about?


    .......

    Remember, if it wont boot from a cd then just formatting with a floppy isnt goingto make it any better, you'll just end up with a blank ahrd drive and still no OS.

    I thought that was the whole idea behind booting with a floppy....
    the cd-rom don't boot, so you turn to the floppies....

    I recently had to do that with NT 4.0 (don't ask)
    teh rom wouldn't go, so I created the floppies, and.....wallah!

    in fact, I created the floppies from the cd that wouldn't boot,
    then used the floppies to install from the same cd....that wouldn't boot....

    you must be under a lot of stress lately ross
