go into your BIOS and make sure the first boot device is CDROM
i assume your using the original Win2k install disk and not a copy if its a copy it has to be bootable
u might try cleaning the lazer in the CDROM with one of those cleaning disk thingys=]

check the physical drive itself. sometimes the problem isn't software or bios based, but hardware. make sure the drive works. if it isn't the drive, then your cd may not be bootable. make some setup floppies (on another system) and do it that way. :) laterz
