    Hi guys, got a problem, which needs to be resolved ASAP.

    I'm not being able to boot from a WinXP CD. CD is working 100% fine, boot sequence is set correct. Even if I set to disable any other boot media but CDROM, GRUB still shows up. I can do fine on linux, but I need win to continue working.

    a few things you can try to fix the problem::

    - restoring optimized defaults in bios.

    - be 100% sure it's a genuine winxp cd and bootable as well (testing on another computer maybe).

    - removing the battery from your motherboard for about 5min. after that, changing the boot sequence again to cd/dvd-drive.

    let me know how things work out.

    good luck!
