Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell latitude C610

The note book wont boot from the hard drive and the CD-rom with the dell OS disc in it. Every time I turn the notebook on, it gives me the an error message that says "No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility". When I strike the F1 key it shows the same message and F2 it goes to setup utilities but on the boot order page it says that the configuration seup is diabled so I can't do anything to it.

    The Bios SATA is set to IDE.

    Is it possible for one to crack the Boot Order Configuration setup andministration password? Because I need to change the boot sequence and I guess it is the only thing that stand between me and formating this machine.

From the Bios, load all the default settings and then check the bios SATA port settings. If it is set to AHCI, change it to IDE to boot from Hard Drive. This should solve the problem

Dell Latitude C510/c610 Can this notebook book from the USB Port? I want to install Fedora Linux on my newly repartitioned HD but I can't read the DVD (don't have DVD drive available).


When you want to boot to the USB hard drive just have the drive installed, reboot the system, select the appropriate function key to go to boot options (should tell you what to press in the beginning of boot up) and select USB hard disk.

An important thing to note: Most Linux distributions won't boot from a USB hard drive or thumb drive without a special program for unpacking it to the USB Hard disk. Check with the distribution website for special instructions.

Good Luck,

NEED TO REFORMAT


If you put a BootCD in the CD drive then turn the system on you should be able to format the HDD from the CD. Also, your new operating system disk should allow you to reformat the HDD. Just put the CD in and start the computer up again. Watch for a message to press the spacebar or any other key to boot from the CD.
