A small technicality is that a CD/DVD disc is spelled Disc as opposed to Disk. The word Disk being used to refer to such things as a hard drive and disc being used to refer to such things as a CD/DVD
Karl, thanks for pointing that out. I did not know that. But now I am confused. Maybe we should settle for disque.

I found this in a Wiki to add to the confusion:


Quote:
In International English, disk is the correct spelling for magnetic disks. If the medium is optical, the variant disc is usually preferred, although computing is a peculiar field for the term. For instance hard disk and other disk drives are always thusly spelled, yet so are terms like compact discs. Thus, if referring to a physical drive or older media (3" or 5.25" diskettes) the k is used, but c is used for newer (optical based) media.

Hi,

I'm having "BOOTMGR is missing" problem in my ASUS K43S. I tried inserting the Win7 DVD and rapidly pressed the F9 key to run the boot from CD but nothing is happening.

I also tried restarting it several times but I still can't boot from the DVD.

Can somebody please help me? Thank you!

For some reason when I went to command prompt it would not respond to any of those commands it just repeated the line that I had at the start which was my name/user or something like that could not get it into C:\ mode at all so how do you get admin privledges in cmd?

Right click on cmd (in accessories) > run as admin.

Or if you want to set it permanently, right click on cmd > Properties > Advances > tick the box "Run as admin" > Apply.
