    My sys specs in attached file.

    BIOS shows CDROM as 1st boot device – but MT86 bootCD fails to prevent boot into XP. Above bootCD shown as housing “memtest.iso” file [Read only, 1.75 mb], by Win explorer.
    bootCD was created by D/L relevant file from memtest86, & using NERO to burn a data CD onto a Samsung disc. CD drive can play music CDs.

    cud anyone help with some tips?

    Thanks in advance
    Ram
