Do you have a BTC CDROM in the 16X to 40X range? If so you may need one of these drivers.

In the CMOS setup do you have it set to "Auto" for your HD and Cd-rom?
If so then the problem may be that when your zyztem is booting up, a query is sent to all devices (what are you? are you there?) and if there is a delay in getting a response back from a device then the CMOS skips it and goes ahead and continues the boot without that slow responding device.
What you can do to workaround this is go into the CMOS setup and change the option for the CD-Rom from "Auto" to "User defined"  and make sure the correct device is listed there. The query will still be sent and if no reply then the CMOS will just assume whatever you have listed is there and if drivers are required then they should be loaded.

If you had a BTC to begin with, or the PC came with a BTC then ther driver command is still in the system.  First I would do a Find Files for any reference to BTC, or CDZPRESS.  Also check for a reference in win.ini or System.ini, for later versions of Windows look in the Folder c:\Windows\system and see if it is there.  

You can also go to the Device Manager in the Control Panel, you will find Device Manager by dbl clicking the System Icon, if the other CDROM is there Click ont and remove both ROMS, and let PnP find it on the next boot. If you do this, make sure you have the latest drivers for the ROM

something else, the end of an IDE(ribbon) cable is the Master, the center connection is the slave, how are the jumpers set on the back of the new CDROM.

Apparently you have switched to a new brand CDROM while leaving references to the old one in your system.

Reboot the computer.

As soon as you see the "Starting Windows 95" message, prss the F8 key (repeatedly, if necessary).

When you see the Windows Startup Menu, choose "step-by-step confirmation".

Say 'Y(es)' to each prompt.
After answering one of the prompts, you should see the error-message that you stated.  
So, which command was the most-recently executed, in response to your 'Yes' entry?
