Proper booting up, what needed to type f4 or f2

Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press usually the Delete or F2 to enter setup this may vary depending on your computers bios other possible keys

Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc)

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys navigate to Advanced Bios features press Enter you will see what the boot order is set to.

IDE-0 means Pri master ?
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?

If you are unsure on what the boot order should be you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart.

This will set the boot order.

Install to pc

Power on the computer and enter the BIOS menu. It will tell you which button to press to enter setup. Generally it will be F1, F2 F10 F12 or Del.
At this point you can insert your operating system disc.
In BIOS navigate the menus and look for Boot Order, or similar Make sure CD/DVD boots before anything else
Press whichever key the menu states to save and exit (Probably F10)
When the computer boots it should either start booting to the installation setup or ask you to press any key to enter installation. Do so and follow the prompts to install your operating system.
Post if you need more info.

16 bit MS DOS subsystem error

press del for desktop ..or F2 for laptop ...right after you turn it on ..and get into BIOS settings...IN there look for something called optimal factory defaults ..and engage them ..confirm with enter ..and save all changes with F10 and again confirm with enter and exit...
This will get it back to the normal settings that were in function when the computer was installed...someone messed around in BIOS and changed the settings from 32bit to 16 or the other way around ..and this is the cause of the error ..
If this will not fix it will have to reinstall it clean ..but still make he reset to factory settings in BIOS so to make sure that the reinstallation will be made upon the right settings for your machine

Problem in reinstallins operating system

This can be started by changing the boot order of your system.
To do so, start up the laptop from a shutdown stance.
This part requires some speed, it will either require the "F2", or "F10" in most cases. IIts not 100% guarantee that this will be the two buttons required for activation of your bios.
When you enter the bios, try to find the boot settings. And make sure your cd-rom is selected as the primary boot device.
After you change the cd-rom as the primary device, Save and Exit from the bios and your computer will automatically restart.
Make sure the O.S. (Operating System) CD is in the CD-ROM and it should automatically boot from the cd-rom, it may come up with options, your options should await you when or if the auto boot from cd works.
Hope this helps.
