Same here BOb...Only I don't get any of the error msgs you have gotten..I
set it to boot from the cd in the Bios..but when it starts up..like yours it
just ignores the cd and goes straight to the C:\
Beats the tar out of me..
I also have a cd that will read in one machine but not in the other..????
