Thats prob because the CD is bootable with a diskette image on it, so when you boot up the CD, it will think the CD is the floppy drive .

Thanks for the reply,Do you think there is a problem with my notebook because when I put the same cd into my pc it boots and loads the operating system fine.

Hi Duffy.
The notebook reports: Entering system reload process.The system appears to be incapable of accepting this method off reload.The reload process was cancelled,remove all discs and restart the system.Then it goes to the a prompt.
