Answers :

Try this: boot into the bios, set the boot order to cd rom first,hard drive 2nd and either one to 3rd. Hit F10 to save changes & exit. Put in your Windows cd. It should come up to a screen that says "Hit any key to boot to cd", do that. Set up should start. If not go back into the bios boot order option and set 1st, 2nd and 3rd boot device option to your "CD Rom" drive. If this works after your installation just remember to go back into the bios and change boot order to CD Rom 1st; Hard Drive 2nd and any to 3rd. You see if there is not disk in the CD Rom when system boots it will automatically search for 2nd boot drive which will be your Hard Drive. The benifit of leaving 1st boot option as CD Rom is in case you need to boot from a CD again and can't get into the bios (which happens alot) the cd option will always be first.
\015\012I know you said you disabled other 2 boot options, you can also try taking out the cmos battery to reset back to defaults.
\015\012The last to try which 9 out of 10 times has worked for me is to use another cd rom. Some just don't have what is needed to be a bootable drive. Actually, I would try changing Rom drive first.
\015\012Good luck.
Try telling it to boot the CD instead of the disk for now, since you need to install from that...or perhaps a newer OS.
