i'm having a lot of trouble getting dban to boot from a cd-r. i double clicked the cdr/rw iso, nero started, it burned a cd, but the cd didn't boot. my floppy drive is going bad, so i can't make a floppy image. i've gone through serveral cd's from several sights, and i would really like to use this wonderful tool. please help.[/i]

Run the BIOS setup program, usually by pushing <F2> or <DEL> immediately after you power-on the the computer, and change the boot order so that the CD-ROM drive is checked before the hard drive.

Many computers default to:

1. Diskette Drive
2. Hard Drive
3. ROM Drive

Change it to:

1. ROM Drive
2. Diskette Drive
3. Hard Drive

Try another disc that should be bootable, like your Microsoft Windows installation media. When you find something that works, report back.
