Default Can't boot from CD.

I changed the bios settings to boot from CD drive first. Then I removed booting from hard drives. Then a message comes up saying to insert boot media or choose another type of booting, or something along those lines.


The CD is in the drive, it shows up in bios, but the CD doesn't boot up, it keeps saying to insert boot media and press any key, everytime I press a key, the same message comes up and I couldn't get to the formatting and re-installing part.

Is this an original XP cd or did you make it and if you made it can you confirm on another machine that it is bootable?
