It's odd that you can't boot into it, is it a new CD drive? If it works in Windows but not to boot from it is either that your BIOS is incapable of booting to a CD (though most can), or that you don't have the driver for it so your computer doesn't recognize that you have a cd drive there. I suggest searching the cd manufactureres site trying to find a BIOS driver, or even contacting them asking for one.

I myself have never done it, I believe there is a way to do it with slackware, but I don't know how to do it. You would have to find a way online.

No promises though,

It really depends on your computer. When you boot you should see in the cornor of your screen when it shows the computer manufacturers logo something htat says one of the F#'s one of them is the BIOS Setup (or configuration) and one is the boot menu. You should jus see what everything is set on.

When i tried to boot from the Boot menu I clicked on Booting from the CD_ROM but it just said Press F1 to retry boot so i pressed it but it just kept saying it over and over I think its my cd-rom drive
I have 2 CD_ROM drives and the main one doesnt work and the secondary one does
I think it tries to boot off the main one but it doesnt work

well, there should be a way to setup the BIOS and you can switch the main and secondary CD-rom drives, unless its the driver, just messing around with it should reveal some results.
