Need Help Quickly please!!!!


I have  a new 160 G hard drive.  When I run my installation CD. The computer is telling me " Device driver not found.  OEM001.  No valid CDROM drivers selected.  Why won't the CD work.  I suppose I need to format first? i appreciate the help.

You need to set the bios to boot from the CDrom first. Hit delete as the computer reboots and set bios to defaults and then set the CDrom as the first device. You will have to watch as it boots to select the CDrom when promted. You may need a floppy to boot from. What OS are you tring to install?

yes the boot order is running the CD 1st in BIOS.

I found the problem. It was in the BIOS settings IDE configurations.  I needed to change "Enhanced"  to "compatitable"  to read the 98 CD.  Thanks for the responses.
