Question about Computers & Internet
I'm trying to boot a live-CD OS from a cd drive. The live-cd works on another computer and the CD drive works.
The bios was setup to boot first from CD drive, then from floppy, then from hard disk. I checked and found that the current bios is the most recent available for this machine.
Somehow, the computer ignores the bios order and looks for an OS on the hard disk.
It gives a boot error ''operating system not found'' if 1- no hard drive is present 2- an unformatted hard drive is present (detected in the bios).
If I place a formatted hard disk with XP in the computer, it goes straight to the OS, ignoring the boot order in the bios - thus not even attempting to read the cd-rom boot disk.
Any ideas on how to get it to boot from the cd-drive?
