Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I guess You are using SATA HDD in New Laptop,

so u need to change HDD option setup.

In laptop default setting for STAT HDD was “Enhanced Mode”

This won’t support with Windows XP, 2000, 2003 OS

so need to change bios setup. so Enter into Bios Setup.

Check and Change the SATA HDD option “Enhanced ” to “Compatibility” mode.

and try to boot through CD.

It will surely work
