I have a desktop comp I needed to format/reinstall Windows on.
The computer won't boot from the CD anymore, It use to.

*Gets to this screen and reboots.*



So I loaded the setup from inside Windows (ie: My Computer > CD) and when it had to reboot during the install, the only thing it did (and will do) when it restarted was scroll 'Press any key to boot from CD' and won't stop. When I remove the CD and reboot Windows won't load.

That is not a Windows setup screen. Is it a boot disk you got from windowsreinstall.com?

It is not from a Microsoft Windows install CD. What CD is it?

Is bios set for cd drive to boot 1st or 2ndrive before hard drive. And this cannot be an XP cd if it wont be accessed by boot command "press any key to boot to cd".

I assure you it is, I've used it before.



1st: Floppy
2nd: HDD
3rd: CDROM

What is listed here is not correct...1)Cd drive, 2)Floppy and then 3)Hard Drive in that order.

You need to either find a working cd drive or an XP cd that is bootable. What you are suggesting is a complete impossibility.
