I recently tried to boot from a floppy using an IBM Netvista 6579 and when I rebooted, it just loaded the operating system without checking the floppy drive. I had a floppy in the drive. Then I tried to shutdown and start up to go into the bios (press the DEL key). To my surprise, there is no option to get into the bios!!!! Just a boot logo that say to press F1 or F12. F1 is for help and F12 is for networking startups and stuff. Then after the Intel Boot Agent kicks in. At this point I can press Ctrl + S to get into somwhat of a bios but again this is the Intel Boot Agent. I cannot change the boot sequence from in there. I just want to ba able to boot from the A: drive.
Thanks in advance.
