Default computer won't support bootable cds

i made a xp pro boot cd and tested it on my dads computer. Everything worked great. For some reason it won't work on mine. I have changed the bios to start up only from cd and still it just doesn't recongize it. Yes i did put the microsoft corpoation.img file on it and i no because it just won't work on this one system.

Any ansews to help it won't on this system. Any thing i have to change around. Remember i already changed around bios.

How old is the motherboard?

Pre 2000 motherboard's may not support booting from CD's, real shame isnt it eh?
