A real nightmare, please help!
Tonight I attempted to create a new partition for Windows Vista Ultimate on my hard drive using Partition Magic. I got error code 1517, and now every time my XP tries to start I get the BSOD and it restarts. That's not my main problem. This CAN be fixed, I have the discs to repair the installation. My problem is, my comptuer WILL NOT boot from a CD. I've tried making the CD-ROM the first boot device, I've also tried completely disabling everything except the CD-ROM alltogether. When I do that, I just get "Hard disk boot failure, please insert system disk and press enter".
How in the **** can I get my PC to boot from a CD? PLEASE HELP ME!
