Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I can't install any OS because by DVD drive doesn't detect it!

\015 I have a Toshiba Satellite A100. I installed Leo4All (Mac OS X Leopard.Everything works fine but now when I want to install another OS (Any i.e, the Leo4All itself, Win XP, Win Vista, Linux). The drive doesn't detect it.I have pressed F12 and asked the system to specifically boot from the CD/DVD drive. Changed he boot order. The Discs work PERFECTLY on other PCs and Laptops.I think installing the Hacked version of Leopard has screwed with the BIOS or Drive's firmware...I need help in finding a flash for my BIOS and some software to reset my Drive's firmware.Please help... I have exhausted all other options :(\015

Have you tried using fdisk and delete partion then make new partion and set active partion then boot from CD which will then format drive then install OS
