Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I got a system form my school with no HDD. I got a standard IDE interface seagate baracuda 7200 rpm 160 GB HDD. I tried booting the system with a boot CD. But the error it is showing is CDBOOT: Memory overflow error. What can be the problem?


Answers :

If you have both a CD drive & a DVD drive, make sure you are using the 1st physical device (according to physical hookup). \015\012
Or if you do have both, then try booting with CD in other drive\015\012
