CD-ROM works OK. It did read the CD and I was able to instal Ghost 9. The
installation CD is supposedly aalso bootable. I can't boot from it.

The mobo definitely supports boot from CD. You could try
making a boot floppy and then running the CD if the disks
won't boot.

I receive "Boot from CDROM - failure" message when I reboot or start my
system.


Try moving your cdrom to another ide channel.

You should also try to boot your CD on another PC.

I had a similar problem about a year ago. How old is your CD? There is I
believe a feature called "multi-read" or "Multiscan" that is incorporated
into newer models.
I boorowed a drive from a friend and was able to boot from CD. Bought a new
CD of my own and have been able to boot ever since.

Good Luck

Geez, thinking back... I'm pretty sure my first cdrom, a Creative 4X4 had
multiscan, whatever the hell it was.

I bough it in April 2004. It is a DVD/CDR combo.

Since ASUS does not want to respond to my email I will have to consider
posting a new post "be careful with ASUS motherboards" or "ASUS motherboards
not compatible with CD-ROM rebooting". A liitle publicity should help.
