Windows 7: Macrium boot cd won't load

Macrium boot cd won't load

Something has changed in the bios I guess. No matter how I set the boot order it will not boot the disc.

Any ideas?

How about other live CDs - do they boot.

Can the DVD/CD drive be used normally? If not, perhaps the SATA/IDE connection is loose.....have you checked that?

Sometimes there is a little "Press any key" message on the left top of the screen. If you miss that, it will default to the OS.

No it's a weird one. It can be used either of them and I no longer see the press any key to boot from cd

I'm trying to use restore points but so far no luck

As Golden said, there is probably something wrong with your CD drive connection or the drive itself. Cannot be the OS because that is not involved at that stage.

It was me. I am getting ready to install a SSD for W7 and blindly I followed an instructional video that said go into the bios and change the sata settings. I'm going to follow this up in another thread to get input on SSD setup.

Thanks
