2007年3月8日 6:25I have WHS on a DVD disk, I put it into my pc and restart it. The pc just boot right up to Windows XP. I tried just a normal windows XP install disk and it boot the CD when the pc is starting. I cant figure out why WHS disk will not work. It started find on my main pc. (Test)
If I understand correctly; the WHS DVD boots on you main PC. If it does not boot on the main pc either look at this thread http://forums.microsoft.com/WindowsHomeServer/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1319182&SiteID=50
Just to make sure, the drive you use in your WHS pc is a DVD player, right?! Maybe the discs created with the DVD writer on your main PC are not compatible with your (older?) drive on the WHS pc? If you don't mind doing some hardware work you could try to swap the DVD drives in the two pc's and see if the DVD will boot then.

further to the above suggestions, ensure that the dvd drive is above the hard drive in the bios boot order, you should then be prompted to press any button to boot from the dvd.
2007年3月8日 23:06When I go into the setting to change what to read first hard drive, cd-rom, ect... I cant get it to change on this pc. I dont know why. To change do you use the page up and down keys?
Or try the + and - keys. One of those should do it for you.

You said the pc does not boot from the WHS DVD but it boots from a Windows XP CD, correct? That would suggest the problem is not with the boot sequence (otherwise it would not boot from the CD either)
You are unable to change the settings but you can see them, right? What is set to boot first?
What brand is the pc, if no brand; what type of BIOS? (if you know the computer brand or the name of the BIOS manufacturer you should be able to Google some information on how to change the settings)
