Hello,

Im going to ask a silly question here but ive created a bootable anti-virus rescue cd called sardu.

I put the cd in my disk drive and re-boot.But nothing happens.

Please help.

Is it in ISO format?

Did you make it from this website?

There also seems to be a tutorial:

It may seem like a basic check... but is your system set to boot from CD?

CHANGE BIOS BOOT - CD-ROM first.

  1. Please restart the computer normally...
  2. When your computer begins it's restart sequence, you may see a reference at the bottom of the screen showing what key or set of keys to press to enter "SETUP".

    If no reference is seen, one of the following key combos will usually get you into "SETUP".
    You have seconds to press the correct key / set of keys... If your computer boots to Windows, you will have to restart and try again.
    DELETE or DEL
    F1
    F2
    F10
    CTRL+ALT+ESC
    CTRL+ALT+ENTER
    CTRL+ALT+S
    CTRL+ALT+INSERT
    CTRL+A
    CTRL+F1
    CTRL+S

  3. Once you enter SETUP, you will see a screen similar to this: your BIOS screens may look differently

  4. Using the Up / Down and Left / Right arrow keys, navigate to the BOOT tab or section.
    Your computer boots from the listed entries, in top to bottom order.

  5. Select the CD-ROM or similarly named device and move it to the first "Starting" position.

  6. Navigate to the Exit or Save and Exit tab/section, select the option to Exit and Save Changes (yours may be worded differently).
    OR
    Choose the appropriate key sequence from the legend at the bottom of the screen. In this example the F10 key.

  7. If you have a CD you want to boot from, insert the CD now... once you confirm the changes, your computer should restart automatically.
  8. Reply Yes to the confirmation prompt.

If your computer did not restart, please restart it manually, with the bootable CD inserted in the drive.
