Old PC CD Boot

Someone asked if there was a way to make an old PC boot from a CD even though the BIOS only recognised floppy drive, A: or B: etc., and hard disk bootable drives.

The answer is yes you can. The tool which allows you to boot from a CD, or indeed many other types of device, is Smart Boot Manager. More information and the download is available here:

I hope that that answers your question, if you have any comments please let me know and if you have any other questions which you'd like me to answer for free please send them to Ben Dash at

I was dubious, but I tried Smart Boot Manager and it worked! Now I can start buying up old PCs off ebay and do something more useful with them, fantastic information! Thanks!
