Yes, "fishing" is the operative word.....

You have one system with F11 and "others" where you can't install.  Of
course you've not said how many...but let's say it is 3.  So, you've had
a 25% success rate installing F11.   I'm pretty sure the overall success
rate is much greater than 25%.  And I'm pretty sure plenty of folks out
there have Pentium4's or Core2 Duo's.  It also doesn't make much sense
that you say think you have a boot block problem but talk about code
supporting CD/DVD players.  I don't see the relationship.

In any event, my 2 older systems...Pentium 4 DIY systems...one with an
ancient Liteon CD player, both with IDE drives installed and work just fine.
