Link to this post 05 Sep 11

I have changed the boot sequence to boot from CD. There is Fedora currently installed on my PC and want to install Fedora 15. My desktop wont boot from LiveCd, I have tried it on another machine running win 7 and it boots from CD, so Im thinking the Iso image is on the CD correctly, but why cant it boot on the Desktp. Were can the problem be?

What do you see when you try to boot? Is it no output to the screen at all? Or at what step does it not work?

On my computer when I want to boot from cd, on the bios screen I start tapping f8 till the menu opens to go to cd. When you boot look for the bios splash screen and see if it shows a button to push.
