    Default Cannot Start Up with CD

    Hi bros,

    I'm using MacBook. Got some problems to seek for help.

    I found that the machine cannot start up with CD, either MacOS or windows setup disc. (I have select them to bootup by startup disc or press "C" button).
    It will just load for some second and eject the disc.
    Then start up with the MacOS.

    The drive actually can read the disc in MacOS.
    But it just can't use cd to boot up.

    Do any one know why?

    Thanks!

    Default in addition

    In addition,

    I eventually use an external dvd-drive, connecting with USB port, to bootup with MacOS setup disc.
    Then I format the HD and clean install the MacOS.
    However, now it still can't install Windows after bootcamp partition.

    Either
    1) Use MacBook internal DVD drive, it loads and ejects the disc.
    2) Use external DVD drive, it loads and show up apple logo with a sudden flash circle with a slash (Is it called kernel?)

    To summarize, my machine cannot use internal dvd-drive to boot up.
    External dvd-drive could help me to bootup with MacOS, but not Windows setup.

    Any one can help me

    what machine do you have, is it a CD or DVD drive your using. What Version of OSX are you trying to install?

    I am using MacBook C2D with super drive.
    MacOS is Snow Leopard DVD.
    Windows is Windows XP CD.

    Actually both could be recognized in MacOS, but not when starting up.
