Re: New Install (NO OS Currently Installed)
It sounds like it is still trying to boot from the hard drive or you don't have a cd seen as bootable. Does your pc prompt a way to access a boot menu at the same time when it prompts that you can access bios? This is the first thing it does when you turn it on. For me F12 is the boot menu and I can select the device to boot from. I can press F2 to go into bios and set the boot order to have cd first. Did you do one of those things already? Have you tried both? Have you checked to see if the cd can be booted in another machine? Is it possible that the cd is actually a dvd and the player only a cd player?
No offense, it is just good to always cover all the basics first.
