Hi there everyone? Just a quick question... What does No Emulation mean? Every time I try to boot from CD into windows, it comes up.... Cheers

you must have something installed messing with it, go to device magager and cd setting and the open with settings (auto run) and this should sort it

Rory, cheers for your reply.. but I have not been able to install an OS yet... so I cannot check Device Manager.. I get this message straight away after turning on the system. I have read in many different places that a Message like "Press any key to boot from CD" should appear, but I only get the above.. Whatya reckon?

Guys - I'm having this exact problem, too.

The point that the first responder did not get is that this error occurs just after the POST screen. I am trying my hardest to figure this out, but I'm completely baffled.

Hi there.. does your system successfully boot into Windows? I have now sorted it out, but when I got that message, my Windows boot was not successful.
It turned out that my HDD was missing one pin. I don't know if that is the same problem as you, but worth a check. Let me know how it goes.

I am having the same problme tring to boot from a Windows 2000 CD. I finaly decided to install Windows NT 4.0, ( the system will boot from a Windows NT 4.0 CD) and then udgrade it to Windows 2000. If anyone knows of a better work-around let me know.

Check to see if your cd-rom is set to slave or cable select. This got rid of the problem for me since mine was set to slave.

I say this a lot on here lately but, if you will check to make sure the heatsink on the AMD cpu`s are tight. Then use one stick of ram to start with. You can then boot to bios and set bios settings to default or failsafe settings.Then set boot sequence in bios to this : 1--floppy----2-cd -----3 hdd---. Then go to this link and print it out, so you can have instructions to go by. Good luck

No emulation on CD, and also after that has posted comes up with NTLDR is missing. It then will go into the install of XP from the CD but will hang when it comes to 'setting up windows'. After that there is no response from the CD rom or from the install of the fresh OS. Going to try and do a Partition Magic and do a fresh NTFS load but I don't think that it will fix the problem...but it is worth a try.
Cheers

when you get no emulation on the screen, hit spacebar and it should normally start loading the software.
after I slipstreamed SP1, for me it displayed as No emulation
hit any key to boot from the cd
and when i hit spacebar, the software starts to load.
