    I did set my CD rom as first boot device, but all i get is a message saying cannot boot in dos mode, i am back now using home edition, but i cannot figure out what is wrong, sorry your mate thinks i am a waste of time, i thought these forums were to help people like me.

    if you look at original post you will see my reply, at least thank you uri

    thnx for your time and patience urie, my problem is that after running fdisk then formatting in dos i place home edition in and i get the same error every time, this version cannot be run in dos mode, yet my xp with sp1 does, i am totally confused.

    have set cd as boot, hit f8 and other keys. still home edition will not work, need to make drive ntfs i think, but have no clue how to do this......
