    I cannot boot from CD, I have tried by booting from CD through BIOS, by pressing "C" but I had no luck.

    Any ideas?

    Hi buddy,

    From which disk you try to boot exactly?
    Have you tested different disks?

    You should check the boot order in BIOS. Set the CD/DVD drive as first boot device and test it again!!!

    Hi

    Either you CD/DVD drive starts to malfunctions and you would not be able to boot from any disk or the CD/DVD drive does not handle only this certain disk.

    You could try to bun/copy the disk and could try to boot using the copied CD.
    In many cases the CD/DVD drive cannot read only one, certain disk. This happens due to old CD/DVD firmware.

    Try to copy the disk using another computer… maybe it will work… if not, then you need to change the ODD.
