boot from CD

I have just put a new hard drive in my old pc. Running a 333 celeron. I am trying to install XP but it will not boot from CD. I have changed the BIOS for CD but still no good. It will install win 98 from floppy, but thats not what I want.

if you have two cd drives, try it in the other one.

On booting up my system with a bootable disc in I get a brief one line prompt telling me to press any key to boot from the cd.

It is visible for only about 5 seconds so it's easy to miss if you're not expecting it.

Perhaps yours is similar.

Your motherboard will be too old to start with CD
