The system has an ECS K7S5A motherboard, about 2001-ish, I think. Before anybody ask's why I'm undertaking such a thing, I'm doing it as an experiment and to see if I could possibly use it as a thin client or media centre. It has a 2ghz Athlon XP2400+ which should still be capable of giving it a good run, plus 1GB of RAM.
Anyways, upon booting the DVD I get the "CDBOOT Code 5 Can not boot from CD" error. I've looked at some solutions on the internet but most require the use of a floppy drive which, although it has one, I'm not sure if it even works anymore, nor do I have any disks to do it with.
Tried making a bootable USB which doesn't boot either. Also tried making a Windows 7 recovery CD (also a Vista x86 recovery CD) and neither seems to want to boot either. Also tried a Windows 98 startup with CD ROM support option but that won't start the DVD either.
So are there any other ways I can get this booting up?
