    It may be a setting in your BIOS. Place Windows XP CD into CD drive.
    Try clearing CMOS.
    Load optimized defaults.
    Boot from CD/DVD from F12 option or go into BIOS and set first boot to DVD.
    Advanced BIOS Features
    Hard Disk Boot Priority [Press Enter]
    First Boot Device [Floppy]
    Second Boot Device [CDROM]
    Third Boot Device [Hard Disk]
    Now save and exit.
    Try this and let us know.

    Thanks artdrivers...
    But i try load optimized default and then
    the boot drives order like you say and don't work.
    In another forum i read about 2 strange point

    1) Try to disable the USB Keyboard support from BIOS
    and
    2) A conflict IDE master and SATA port 0, and a
    cableselect issues.

    the point 1 need to try in a moment and may be
    change the SATA port to SATA4 (an example)

    The strange case is with Win XP, because i can boot
    from CD/DVD with HIRENS BOOT CD disk.

    Any suggestion, please tell me.
    Thanks again men.

    Booting from cd/dvd drive:
    and show me about the cd XP canīt boot and of course
    no installation is available.

    I try with Hirens Boot CD and boot ok.
    The problem is XP installation.

    I have a SATA HDD in sata0 port
    And Sony DRU720-A in IDE master
    Hi Mauro have you tried cleaning the XP CD an looking for scratches on it. This is a common problem cuz CD s get scratched very easily. Or get some other material that prevents CD from being read by your Drive. Also try creating a slipstreamed disc on another PC with .NET installed and Nlite
    nLite - Deployment Tool for the bootable Unattended Windows installation
    We also have no idea what your system Specs are like MOBO model CPU power supply etc...

    Here is a guide to creating a Nlite disc
    [GUIDE] Creating The Ultimate Windows XP Installation CD/DVD, with nLite 1.4 Final - Overclockers Forums

    One other thing came to mind is that some board require the floppy be set as first boot device, even if they will not be used. The CD/DVD should be set as next boot device then the hard drive. I know it sounds wierd but this procedure was required in order to start windows XP on a old Presario S4210NX. If you have it there is a othere option to choose boot order from the f12 key i believe (gigabyte).
