Try pressing escape and setting up the local hard disk (C:\) as the boot media. This (if there is an operating system installed) will boot to the hard disk. Try that and see if it works for you bud.

If that doesn't work, try putting your recovery disc into the CD-Rom drive then restarting. It should load up the CD's software and you can go from there.

Try these solutions and see if they work, If they don't, simply reply and we'll go into a little more detail with figuring out what happened.

Boot Priority on Dell Latitude 100L
  1. Turn On Your PC
    Have you ever noticed the messages that pop up on the screen as soon as you turn on your PC? These messages tell you a key combination you can press to enter "Setup" or the "BIOS." Watch your screen and see if you can read what keys to press.
  2. Press the Keys to Enter Setup Mode
    If you did not see a message telling you what keys to press, try tapping the following possibilities as you turn on the machine:
    • Esc
    • F2
    • F12
    • F10
    • F1
    After pressing Esc or other key, you will most likely see instructions telling you how to enter "Setup Mode". Follow those instructions.
    tip.gif On some computers, you must hold down the key before you press the power button to turn on the computer. For example, if you are converting a Toshiba laptop to a Linux Workstation, you must hold down the Esc key and then press the power button. The computer then asks you to press F1, and you can then set the "Boot Priority."
  3. Using the Arrow Keys, Choose the "Boot," "Boot Order," or "Boot Priority" Option
    The menu of choices you see will be different for different kinds of computers. Remember that the choice you want is the "Boot" order or "Boot Priority." On some computers, this is called the "Start Up Options" or "Start Up Sequences." You are going to change where the PC will look for boot information when it starts up. (CD-ROM, HARD DRIVE/HDD, LAN, FLOPPY, USB). If you wish to boot from your Hard drive, then select it as your First Priority.
  4. Using the instructions on the screen, save your settings and start up your PC. The PC must boot from the HDD. Regrds

Unable to get to CMOS using any of the 3 methods


This machine is one of the first "legacy free" models which means there are no BIOS options to change. All settings and resources must be assigned by the OS.
For details, please check the "legacy free" FAQ on MS Knowledge base.
If you are trying to access the BIOS to change boot order so that you can boot from a CD, hold down the 'c' key during POST/boot. This will case your laptop to boot from CD-ROM.
