I've recently had to re-install Windows. Normally I do a clean re-install. Fdisking, formatting, re-install the CD-ROM drivers, then re-installing Windows. Now after I re-install the CD-ROM driver, I go to re-install Windows, I get a error saying the CD-ROM is not accessible. The light never goes off. Before I had to reinstall I noticed two CD-ROM listings in my autoexec.bat, now it will not start up at all.
If you are trying to get the DOS cdrom drivers loaded so that you can load Windows, try removing all references to the CD in the config.sys and the autoexec.bat files, then re-install your cdrom drivers.
"Oh Bother," said Pooh, as Windows crashed for the umpteenth time.
