I have problem with my OS (XP) keep rebooting but will not start. Therefore, I decided to repair or re-install the OS, But it won't boot from the DVD drive - never gives option during POST for "press any key to boot from CD"
It will NOT boot with an external USB too, when I press Esc key ( not F2 or F10 as in the case of my laptop) to enter BIOS for setting boot order, the system hangs forever till I remove the CD from internal or External DVD-ROM, then it will continue rebootint itself.
Any help appreciated.
