    CD Rom not found
    « on: June 16, 2010, 03:44:55 AM »
    I recieved a computer with no hard drive in it.  I'm trying to get it going.  Its a Gateway desktop.  I put a hard drive in and got it loading to command prompt.  The BIOS is picking up the CD-Rom, however when loading the computer it says the CD-Rom is not found.  This is keeping me from loading Windows XP on to the computer.  I've tried different cd drives but it keeps doing the same thing.  I've racked my brains trying to find the problem & can't seem to get it.  Someone please give me some advice.
