I did read most of it thank you, and from your initial post it made it sound like you tried to boot from the CD so that you could reformat, when installing the OS will reformat automatically.

I suggest checking the jumpers on any drives, and moving the floppy down to the bottom of the boot order. You should also make sure the BIOS settings are set to IDE/SATA depending upon what type of drive you are using for each port.

my mistake. and i did check the jumpers. everything is set fine. in the bios it is set to ide. as for the boot order.. ive even disabled 2nd and 3rd. and left 1st as the dvd drive.

i think the next step for you is testing with different cd/dvd drive and a different OS disk.

Well, you never made sure the optical drive STILL works. You said that it worked in a previous computer, but things can happen between using and building--maybe the drive is malfunctioning. Do you have another optical drive you can use?

By "distribution cd", if you meant a CD that came with a pre-built machine then it will not work. Installation media that you get from package PC's only works with the model it was intended for in the majority of cases.

Either way, it looks to me that the CD, or the way it was burnt, is the cause of the issues given everything else that you've tried.

First off:
As others have reccomended, try booting from a bartPE cd.
Secondly
You think you may be having CD drive issues, but it may instead be a problem with your bootloader &/or MBR!
Just eliminate the variable and boot from a floppy! (If you have one)
If you don't have one, just make a bootable USB drive!

If you feel like experimenting!

Use HPBootkey to make the USB Bootable and copy the generic "bootme" files to it. (works just like the generic Windows "format & Make disk bootable" but, works for USB)
(but you know this already- right?!)
See if you can boot from that; and then see if you can access the CD drive!
If you can, then it was a problem with your HDD not your CD, so just load your OEM disk in and GO! the "Windows Format" will fix it!

If not, and this is the experimental part
Try loading those generic bootme files directly onto your "bunk" HDD!

Heck, sometimes if you load those boot files directly onto a
"I thought it was formatted A-OK; but, it really seems Dead and unrecoverable" drive; it'll do wonders!
You can get the drive to comeback to life, the bootloader will recognize the Cd drive, you can get the Install disk to run
- and then that Install will just overwrite those "generic" bootfiles. So- No Harm -No Foul.
If it still doesn't work, you're no worse off than you are now.
(It's worked for me on quite a few "stubborn" installs-(recycled disks))

This of course may not be anything remotely related to the problem you're experiencing, (Kinda hard to decipher the thread)
But, something just made me think Bootloader error!

Try it and see!
OR NOT

Cheers Anyway

Happy?! Memorial Day Weekend
