Thanks for your help. I can follow the steps, but got no results.
After changing the boot option to boot from CD I got this messge on
rebooting:

Booting from CD-Room...
Boot failed: could not read CDROOM (code 001)
No bootable device.

Clearly the same CDROOM was read and have gone through disk formatting
and file-copying still in the CD drive. This may be a different side
(effect) of the same bug.
