Gateway e4300 won't boot to XP OS
I was trying to reimage a pc using Symantec Ghost image, but the 1st image dvd was bad and gave an error message and booted to DOS Arompt. I did a ctrl+alt+del and rebooted to a message to insert the System Recovery cd, I did and when it was complete it ejected the dvd and rebooted. It then says it completed installing the XP OS and drivers. I rebooted and it looped back to insert the System Recovery cd. It will not boot to windows nor to a cd now. How can I get the system to boot to a cd/dvd so I can reimage the pc?

Access the BIOS on the PC and make the CD drive bootable.
If you are unsure of how to access the BIOS - look in your computer setup manual. If you do not have the manual - here is a web site on Accessing the BIOS.
