Hello! I recently purchased and installed a brand new 12.7mm slimline CD-RW for my laptop. The device works absolutely fine when Windows XP has loaded up, but I can't seem to actually boot from the darn thing (i.e. by inserting a bootable CD, and then restarting the computer). I've been into my system bios (by pressing F2), and have looked everywhere for a way to change my IDE settings, but to no avail. I've made sure that my boot sequence includes the CD-RW as the first device, but it still just says that the secondary IDE channel is disabled. I just don't know what to do ! I can change the IDE setting without any difficulty from my desktop (which also runs Windows XP), but my laptop's sytem config. just won't give me the same options. Does anyone know of any other way to solve this problem?? Any help would be greatly appreciated !
