Default Re: windows xp sp2

Are you running a cd drive? Vista comes on dvd disks. That would be one reason for not being able to boot off the disk.

Another item would be either changing the boot order in the bios to see cd rom as the first boot device and remembering to press a key when that request is displayed onscreen. Or on the first post screen when first powering the system up you can press the F8 key to bring up the boot device menu and select the dvd drive under the optical drive catagory for a one session boot. The Asus model in your sig indicates that.
