CD's wont boot

Postby KDrumm on Sun Sep 09, 2007 4:52 pm

Hi all,
!st let me say The cd's are good.
BIOS is set to cd 1st.
I dont know but it seems to jump to Grub to fast.
Mint and XP boot fine from grub. The last thing I did was update linux-686 I think. I left some room at the end of my HD to play with other distros.
Would it be possible to run cd from grub.
In case I didn't say
No cds will boot just goes to grub and all works good
Linux Mint 4.0 / XP
Toshiba Satellite M45-S165

If BIOS is set to boot off CDs first and that does not happen it is a hardware problem or CDs that are not proper boot cds
Can you verify that the CDs boot in another computer?
And as stated it's a hardware problem
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
