ok maifs,

if u hav decided to boot from a dvd then u burn d bootable iso file using any burning wizard like nero etc. just double click d iso file or open it with dat particular disk burning software n burn it by pressing/clicking d burn option.


now after d burning is completed u restart ur pc n open ur bios
now go to boot priority or boot setup options n then select ur dvd rom/writer to be d first boot device n ur hard drive to be d second boot devise n then after saving all this settings in ur bios see whether any boot is going on or not frm d hard drive.

if it doesn't work then change ur bios settings to d default n then see whether u got any solution or not.

change the order from

IDE-0
CD/DVD-0

to

CD/DVD-0
IDE-0

also, make sure jumper settings are correct on all of your IDE devices.
