Heck, it even says "booting to CDROM" for about a half a second before it starts up grub from the hard drive and continues booting. The message about "PXE" and the "MAC ADDR" is all related to an attempt to boot over the network that ends in the "Media Test Failure". Computer Won't Boot From Hard Drive
Use the down arrow to move down the list and the F5 or F6 key to change items as necessary. Un mount is not a big deal, it should remount. Sam, you can and should update the BIOS before installing Windows, unless you already have the latest. this content Members can monitor the statuses of their requests from their account pages.

Thank you andydread, you found a post that I didn't see. Thanks for sharing. Can't Boot From Cd Windows 7 UEFI will handle larger partitions than BIOS could, but it also has a feature called Secure Boot to prevent you from "accidentally" installing some other operating system, such as Ubuntu Linux.
Just a clarification for others following these steps. So, from what you have read about others with the same problem, did anyone pinpoint the source of the problem? Correct DVD file display Incorrect DVD file display. http://crudlet.org/boot-from/unable-to-boot-mac-from-dvd.html I have the exact same problem: my HDDs are listed in the Advanced SATA configuration, but not in the Boot option priorities...

lol MxFragz said:Hello everyone ! I see that the 1 - 4 SATA connectors are hanging off the side of the board at a right angle, and the 5 & 6 are sticking up when looking So if I disable the Controller, the Marvell Storage Boot ROM automatically disappears and is not an option any more. Does the Parallels team even read these forums?
Can't see my CD-rom in boot options. I just have to say that. Also under Marvell LAN 1 and Marvell LAN 2 there is a sub option called just LAN Boot Rom. Together, they make no sense ('-r' or '-o ro' would), and alone they're superfluous as a CD will never be mounted anything BUT read-only.
try this Re: Unable to mount cdrom0 ok if you can see your cdrom lets try to forcebly mount it via terminal: Code: sudo mkdir /media/cdrom-test Code: sudo mount /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom-test Add the DVD Boot option manually in the BIOS Note: Tap the < F2 > key at the Dell logo on powering on the system to enter the system BIOS.

Use the SmartBootManager to boot from the CD-ROM drive. All I get is a blue screen. does anyone have the patience to help me out of this mess? A few different Bios screens.
Windows XP Home on a Dimension 2400. This is starting to make more sense now. It should say that "the operation completed successfully" or something similar after each command (also, yes, there is a space between "exe" and "/"). Go to REPAIR option.
