Maybe Yarner will come back sunday 20, he wrote on sunday 13...

When both DVD drive and USB boot don't work, but Windows boots, I suggest to use LICK

Just boot Windows, install LICK, download one or more Puppy ISO, then start LICK and install Puppy dragging-and- dropping the ISO into LICK's window.


LICK will install Puppy on an hard disk folder, and will add a 'Puppy boot option' voice in Windows bootloader, so you can choose to boot Win or Puppy at PC bootup.

Very useful and faster than DVD boot!

The DVD he burned and the USB he burned both boot on other machines. That means they are fine.

This seems to me like a hardware issue on the bios level.

Subject description: .
 

as indicated by the topics name, a 2006 laptop's CD/DVD device most likely full of dust and read/write head scratched for some reason.

suggested method (using grub4dos) :
- rename ntldr to ntldr_xp
- rename grldr to ntldr
- edit menu.lst

### sample menu.lst ###

timeout 10
default 0
command --set-path=/

title Boot winxp
find --set-root /ntldr_xp
chainloader /ntldr_xp

title Boot BionicPup
kernel (hd0,0)/bionic/vmlinuz
initrd (hd0,0)/bionic/initrd.gz
