help with debian install

Recommended Posts

You installed grub on another hard drive?  That would be a reason it's not working... also are you sure grub is set up right?  If you changed drives around after the install it's probably not configured right anymore

Well, I got a Debian CD created from the ISO image (from another computer) and I was able to poke around and read the readme files and examine the CD.

Then I moved it to my old laptop computer where I want to install Debian.  It seems I need to change the BIOS settings so that I can boot from the CD.

So once I did that.  Nothing.

It even says during startup

INITIALIZING BOOT CD

and then

STARTING WINDOWS 95
