I have a used Gateway Solo 2000 with an Intel Pentium 133mhz with a SystemSoft bios, Opti Viper 557/558 version .921.01 (2450-03) and I can't get into it.
The first thing that comes up on it is that there was no OS found on the hard disk, run BiosXXX to restore or hit F1 to continue. If I hit F1 I boot up. The next thing that comes up is the bios name and version and the memory test. It says nothing about entering setup. I don't get a POS beep (not sure if laptops do this)
but I have trie hitting esc, F1, F2, control+alt+shift, del and just shift. I am trying to change my boot options. I formatted my HD and copied over system files and CD drivers mscdex.exe and oakcdrom.sys, but it won't recognize the CD drive. The CD rom and Floppy are interchangable so I can onlu have one in there at a time and I don't know what to do! Help!
