Did you check the boot order in BIOS? Maybe your DVD drive is located
after your HD. In this case, your laptop will never boot from it.


Yes I have. I am sure it first checks the CD ROM.

Does the laptop have DVD at all?
You say it checks the CD first..!? A DVD disk will not boot or even be readable in a CD reader.
Does the laptop boot from a bootable CD-disk (eg. windows XP install)?

Yes it does. As I said, I can see the contents of DVD in my laptop which runs Ubuntu at this time, but it is not bootable.
