Default Laptop CD Drive Problem

sponsored links

 
I have bought a Sony Laptop about 2 months ago. It had Windows XP Home Edition installed on it and I wanted to format that and install Windows XP Pro. So, I have tried to insert the cd, then restarted, but the cd drive won't automatically boot from the windows xp backup cd. It just won't detect it. When I tried my Windows 2000 cd, it boots up fine. Do I need to download some drivers? I have already gone into the BIOS Setup and changed the CD-Rom to boot up first, but it is still no use.

Your XP CD is missing the boot record by the description...
