NB100 will not boot from the XP CD in the external USB CD/DVD drive
I try to install XP Home in my NB100
The netbook still refuses to boot from the XP CD. It's just not more
Returns the current operating system (Ubuntu) or give the error "Could not find NTLDR" dreaded.
And yet - it will boot from an Ubuntu Live CD disk perfectly fine, AND
If I connect this external hard drive on my computer Windows 7, (another Toshiba
Portable satellite) that the machine starts quite successfully since the XP CD
in the same external drive!
Can anyone throw any light on what is happening on Earth on?
There are various reasons why this error message:
In most cases this error because the laptop is trying to boot from a HARD drive or flash drive that is not configured correctly. Maybe the drive is not bootable or not compatible.
It would also be possible that some sectors on the HARD disk, HARD drive failures are corrupt or BIOS is damaged. NTLDR error messages may also appear if the master boot record is damaged.
In your case I recommend that you format the first HARD drive before booting from the hard drive CD7DVD external using Win XP CD.
By the way: you must add SATA driver to CD Win XP using nLite.
The SATA driver is placed on the European driver Toshiba page in the Intel Storage Manager
The SATA driver is needed to recognize the HDD by Win XP!
I have a portege Z930 14U
I am not able to boot from an external linke (Samsun SE-218) CD player via USB
I already set the boot sequence and choosed CSM as model BIOS
Try disabling secure boot in the BIOS too.
Then connect the CD/DVD from the laptop drive and switch on the device.
Press F12 and choose from the menu to boot from the USB device
Need help on a laptop Z575 age of 2 years that immediately after an automatic update of windows, will not start either from the hard disk or restore DVDs (blue screen). Does not start in safe mode, not booting from a rescue of third party DVD. Attempt to start, it will show you the ability to start the Startup Repair tool. Repair shows that it is unable to fix with the detail following problem error messages:
Signature of the problem 1: 6.1.7600.16385
Signature of problem 2: 6.1.7600.16385
Signature of the problem 3: unknown
Signature of the 4:21200196 problem
Signature problem 5: auto failover
Signature of the problem 6:7
Signature of the 7 problem: bad driver
OS version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Normally think that the hard drive has failed or that windows update caused a software problem, but the inability to boot from any restore disk that makes me think that there is another serious problem with the hardware of the laptop.
Any help would be appreciated. THX
Additional note: when you try to boot from a restore disc, blue screen, error message:
Stop: 0x0000007B (0xF78DA640, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
It is a hardware failure that cannot be restarted soft.
I also removed the hard drive and RAM, reinstalled and rebooted, no change.
Additional note: I was able to access the hard drive with a recovery of old program, focused on the (SpaceFM) ram charged through the DVD player. Hard drive data appears intact. Still does not start from the hard disk or a DVD of windows system.
Thank you. Rather than buying a 4 GB or more large key USB comes from put this into hard drive replacement. Installed correctly, boots very well now. No other error of the optical drive... and no explanation I can see, but that's it.
Unless something else pops up we'll just call cela a HARD drive failed after 2 years of common use. Thanks again.
I hope that someone here will be able to help
I bought a new laptop with Windows 8.1. I want to install Windows 7 on that I know well because I can't use the new windows. I changed the settings in the BIOS to get the machine to boot from the CD, but it won't be fair. I also tried to restore the system to boot from the CD, but it installs just the Windows pre-installed, new instead. Also, I can't access the CD from the drive while all my other computers are capable of (what is strange)
Can someone help, please?
See you soon
PS. : I can turn on the computer through the small "boot botton" on the side and select the DVD drive to boot from. But this is not followed by the message "Press any key to boot from CD" and the computer starts just W8 yet;
I contacted customer service and followed your advice. They refused to help him on the ground that there nothing wrong with the machine in their opinion, and since I wanted to change operating system. All preinstalled spyprogrammes Lenovo has been erased with this downgrade. So far, I've owned a laptop computer brand new and expensive for a year I used only to waste my time, trying to make it work, that was not why I bought it in the first place. What a RIP-OFF!
I recently bought your desktop HP Pavilion p7 1414, I am trying to boot from a CD to reinstall Windows 8 - I put the CD to start first in the BIOS, but when I restart the computer and I have the CD, "press any key to boot from the CD" is not displayed. It starts just directly to the computer HARD disk in Windows to connect.
I have 64-bit Windows 8. 6 GB of RAM and a terabyte of HARD drive space. I'm looking to reinstall Windows 8 for a new start. Any ideas why it won't boot from the CD?
You must go into the BIOS and enable the legacy Mode and disable secure boot.
Totally new here and I have a question. I replaced the hard drive in the laptop, the old man died.
I set the bios to boot from the cd. He reads the Windows XP cd for a minute then jump to trying to boot on the network adapter.
Do I need to have the cd of recovery or must it be able to boot from a plain old XP cd?
If it can boot from a normal cd is the stuffed ROM or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help you.
> I replaced the hard drive in the laptop, the old man died
Your new hard drive is recognized by the Bios?
> Do I need to have the cd of recovery or must it be able to boot from a plain old XP cd?
You can use a recovery (if available) disk or Windows disk copy. In the Bios, you must set the Cd/DVD-ROM as 1st boot device and press F10 save and exit. Turn it back on. Thus, your computer you should start the installation of the Cd drive.
My new Z930-118, with windows 7 64 bit home, does not recognize the external CD/DVD drive when I plug it into the USB port.
The CD/DVD device does not even appear at all in Device Manager.
The reader is a SE-S084 Samsun and works well on another laptop.
I already checked for the "upper_filter", "lower_filter" with the regedit, but entries are not there, so no help.
I m not very well how to help you.
I found some information about this WEIRD disc and it seems that he didn't need an external power supply. Its USB bus powered so I guess around 500mA power since it is the default value provided by a USB 2.0 port.
I don t think that there is a problem of missing software. It is a plug n play device so you need to connect it to the USB port and the system should automatically recognise.
From my point of view of the few you try to connect the external USB ODD two ports to aid a * Y * Cableusb.
I think the reader needs more power provided by a single USB port.
I try to install a new SSD in my M91p, but when I press Enter for the splash screen, change the boot order have only Boot from CD rom, then reboot, I get a "error 1962: OS not found" message.
I checked the DVD rom is functional by returning to the old HARD drive and use it.
What Miss me?
someone entered cmd and did something to my computer, now, the computer shuts itself, what can I do I tried to reinstall windows and the computer does not start from cd?

At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu
Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.
See you soon.

I have a Windows 8 HP Pavilion laptop. I forgot the password of my account, but I wasn't worried because I had a recovery disc. However, even with the cd in the laptop, I directed to the login page every time. I want the cd to run the place and recover my account! I have enabled the legacy in BIOS and disable secure startup, and I even changed my boot order to put the boot first CD. None of this works well. Can someone help me? I really want to access my laptop soon.
Immediately after switching on the laptop, press the ESC key to get a menu. Then press F9 boot options. Use the arrow key to move down and select/highlight the CD/DVD drive, and then press the Enter key.
Hello, I have this problem with Toshiba satellite A300.
I deleted several files and folders of my drives C and E. To restart the computer, it only shows the Toshiba logo then a slightly gray white screen on a thorough inspection. Whenever I press CRL + ALT + DELETE, the computer restarts and behaves in the same way.
I tried to use an external monitor, but there is no difference. The tent to start using a CD/DVD, same behaviour occurs, it does not start and screen remains blank after the Toshiba logo, I tried even to change g the order of boot, but in vain.
What could happen?
Thanks in advance.
It seems that you deleted system files and Windows no longer starts. Have you tried to restore the disk image factory settings or hard drive recovery? Or do copy the Windows installation... It is easier to reinstall rather fix the problem.
I have an old Presario R3000, someone updated to windows 7, has a few problems, including the cd player read don't not bootable disc, because I would like to install Vista instead, any suggestions on how to solve this problem, thanks in advance.

Portable office, dismissed plugged DVD and voila, it worked. I have an installation disc Windows 7 Starter and installed as I thought it would be better for! GB of memory, was not bothered with it runs, so Vista, installed fine. Some drivers are missing, sound and player card, as it's XP, so no drivers HP, I have a fixed front sound, means add files in a folder of the directory, will have to google search it again once, thank you very much for your advice, which fixed the problem, I am not too bad for a surfer of money. I know the numbers of the missing drivers, it's just a case of locaing, some of the download sites are very confused. Once agai thanks.
Thanks for your time

I have a Portege R100 and the HARD drive has failed. I installed a new HARD drive and I have the Toshiba recovery disks. I tried to boot from a generic USB CD-ROM but the laptop did not recognize.
I have a disk of Toshiba USB drive it does not recognize and I have a restore disc but I don't know how from there. Do I have to buy a CD external Toshiba and if so, which?
Any useful suggestions?
Boot from the external USB CD/DVD drive is not possible.
You will also be able to boot from USB HDD!
If you want to boot from the CD, you must use a compatible PCMCIA cards (16-bit and 32-bit Cardbus) CD/DVD drive.
For more information, see this article from Toshiba:
and this other thread:
While I read in this forum that it is not possible to start a ct 3049 since an external USB CD drive, I read elsewhere on the web (I can find is no longer the link) it is possible to boot from a USB CD drive as long as it's an Iomega brand player.
Can anyone confirm on deny for me please?
You can boot from the external USB CD drive, but you need a supported drive.

A year ago I bought a dell inspiron 15r with windows 8 only installed language. Dell didn't send me a windows install disc and I don't know my product key. I don't like windows 8 at the time and did a clean install of windows 7 and used for a year. R
