error 1962: no operating system found

    I've bought an IBM ThinkCentre S51 (Celeron D processor) without any OS on
    it, because I wanted to boot it from the CD-ROM-drive and install an OS
    (fedora 11 first, but it did also not work with XP and others).
    I was able to access the BIOS, to change the boot order and other
    settings, and the CD-ROM was listed in the BIOS. The CD-ROM-drive also
    started to work for about a minute, but then it stopped and the error
    1962: no operating system found was prompted.
    The same error appeared when trying to boot from floppy disk or other
    bootable CD-ROMs like WinXP, Win98, an IBM BIOS Update and others.
    Everything seemed to work, I also checked if the connection cables are
    damaged and all drives seemed to work.

    I hope someone can help me to solve this problem with error 1962, thanks!

    I've solved the problem, the seller of the PC replaced the CD/DVD-drive
    and now it works :)
