IBM computer that will not boot from the DVD Drive, BIOS will not give me a choice to boot from the DVD/CD Drive
Posted on 2006-11-26
I have a IBM computer with a Bios that will not give me the option to boot from the DVD drive, I want to wipe the hard drive and install XP Pro from a fresh install. When I boot the computer in the previous XP Pro OS I can see and use the DVD drive with no problems, the problem is that when I boot the computer I want to install a fresh copy of XP Pro and it will not boot from the DVD drive, it will boot from a floppy drive. The BIOS will not give me the selection of booting, if I press the F12 key when it boots it gives me a boot order option that will only allow me to boot from the hard drive or floppy drive, I need to be able to install from the DVD drive.
