    No I didn't get the 'press any key to boot from the CD'. It continues on as though I'd never selected to boot from CD-ROM in the first place. The disc is in the drive, and I did save my settings when I edited in the BIOS. I've pulled it back up over a dozen times now on reboot (press Delete to enter setup) so I know it's saving OK.

    There are 3 settings, priority 1, 2 and 3 for boot order. I've gone as far as to set all three to CD-ROM, exit and save.....still same result.

    Did you try F12 and select cdrom?

    Do you have more than 1 cd/dvd rom?, if so put the disk in the other one and I bet it boots...

    Yes, please try F12 at bootup then choose your CD Drive

    Also try the other CD Drive, the one you said you tested and the DVD worked on. Put that drive in your system and see if it will boot with that one, some drives act funny and produce strange errors so you never know it could just be the drive itself.

    Is this SATA Drive? If so please connect it to the last SATA port (SATA2_4) and be sure your OS Drive is on SATA2_0

    Thanks for everyone's help, but I finally said to heck with it and put in a new HD. Didn't hurt to put a bigger one in there anyway and now's the time to do it I guess....

    In case anyone is curious though....it seems that I found what the problem was. The fact that I was pressing Delete instead of F12 was part of it....that first screen goes on and off so quick that I wasn't able to see it.

    Then.....that boot menu pop-up that comes up, I didn't realize that you can scroll down in that list. Most of the options there are things that I don't actually have, and I guess I'm not used to seeing that. When it said CD-ROM, I thought that was a generic term for my DVD drive. I had to scroll down a bit to find my DVD drive, and then it worked.

    I wasn't able to do a completely clean install--had to install an old version of XP first since my Windows 7 is an upgrade version.

    When I want to boot to a cd I get a message "To Boot to a CD hit any key" This is just before it automatically boots to Windows. Did you try that?

    Ya you only would need to press F12 several times while you fired up the system, delete key should not be pressed at all if you are trying to boot to CD/DVD.

    Some DVD/CD's depending on the media may not actually show you the "Boot to CD" message either, they will just boot to it.
