MSI KT6V-LSR (MS-7021) Can't Boot From CD/DVD
« on: 09-January-10, 17:31:25 »

New to the forum and would like to say hello to everyone first.

Here's my problem i can't boot from my DVD drive, my 2 HDD's and 2 DVD drives are working fine inside windows.

Inside the bios screen they are detected in the right order, and are in the right boot order. I checked the jumpers on them and they seem fine and i haven't touch them since i changed my dvd rewriter 6 months ago and i have booted from a cd since then.

I just booted up the Windows Xp disc on a differnt pc and it worked fine, yet on mine it goes straight to my XP OS.

I was hoping someone could help me out, thanks.

Did you install Nero 9  by any chance?
Even if you didn't, and old version of InCD can cause this too.

The problem is upper/lower filters, they are screwed and thus your CD's are missing in action.

Run this tool inside windows: ftp://ftp6.nero.com/tools/General-CleanTool.zip

As for booting, change the boot order in the BIOS, probably set to harddisk first.

If that doesn't solve it, disconnect one of the CD's and test with a single one, maybe one is broken and hinders the other, but that is my last guess.

Did you press F11 at the POST screen to access the boot menu and select the DVD drive to boot from?

I take it you've tried both drives.
