Re: Problems booting from CD

Thanks for all your help. What eventually worked was I remove the case and
unplugged the TDK RW (the master drive) which left the Memorex CD and then I
was able to get the "Press any key to boot from a CD". Did a repair install
with my new software and everything went great.
