Workstation will not boot from CD drive
Posted on 2014-10-04
I have a Dell 620 workstation that I was going to donate. First I wanted to make sure I had all the data from the drives. I copied all data to sd cards. Just as I finished I noticed that all three 260 gig drives had incorrect sizes listed when clicking on My Computer. All were very low. I rebooted. No change. I formatted the last one on the chain. No difference. I disconnected all but the one formatted drive and still the CD would not perform a self boot of the XP installation. I did change the bios to have the cd boot first, but it just doesn't. How do I proceed from here? I have nothing left on the 3 drives that matters.
