 Post subject: Problem reading the disc

My problem is that I cannot get the cd to boot at startup.

I burned the image at 8x using Ashampoo and have changed my bios settings to boot from my cd drive first. Yet when I start my computer it still boots into Vista from the hard drive.

Any ideas?

Have you burned the iso as CD image or have you burned the iso as a file to the cd?

Normally you also can press F8 and select the cdrom drive to boot from the cdrom drive.

See: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1433
It contains a link to a page which explains how you have to burn an iso to a CD for a lot of programs.

The image is properly mounted and I've tried the cd on another machine and it booted no problem.

I set the boot settings in the bios to solely boot from the cd drive to see if it would finally take but I just received an error message to insert a bootable disc.

The drive in question is an Optiarc 7200s

Do you have access to a floppy drive? If so, try this:

Bootable CD Loader v1.50Z
