    Are you trying to boot from a CD?
    Did you add or update or change anything recently? Hardware/Software?
    Any detailed information you can give would be great. It's better to give too much info than not enough.

    Do you have a HDD detected in bios? (aka the 'press F1 to continue' isn't a SMART failure warning, right?).
