You can do this by changing the BOOT Priority in your BIOS settings.

To get into BIOS:-
When you first turn the system on, you get what they call a POST screen (normally has the laptop logo or enegy star monitor rating), at the bottom of the screen, it should give you an option or two (i.e. F1-Boot Options, F2-Setup (also called BIOS). Different systems use different keys to enter the BIOS (or SETUP), this is usually F2 or Delete.
Once you are in the BIOS, just have a browse for BOOT OPTIONS or BOOT PRIORITY, and change the value of FIRST BOOT to CD-ROM.

Save these new settings to CMOS and exit. The system will now reboot, and this should solve the problem

press F2 when you restart your laptop but for desktop press DEL when your computer is starting up to get it to the BIOS then look for BOOT OPTION the make the USB CDROM on top to make it the first boot.
or
insert your Windows Operating System CD and restart your computer then press F8 multiple times and it will give you option to select CD ROM to boot from

How to fix a dell inspiron 8100 boot.When i tryed to boot frome a driver cd that was not for my computer i tryed to boot frome it but would not boot so i turned it off and tryed to boot frome my hard drive...


Hi ethandown,

From my experience, you most likely have a corrupted hard drive which has affected your Windows Installation. Your only option may be to boot from a Windows XP cd.

-When your computer starts, press F2, sometimes delete to enter the system options and change the boot-up priority device to cd/dvd 9(1st).

- Restart the computer putting your windows xp setup cd inside. It will ask you to press a button to run from the cd.

- follow instructions and when on the blue screen, use the repair windows installation.

-if that doesnt work, you may have to reinstall windows however your old files will still be on the hard drive.


Hope this helps,


kc

How to format my computer?


To format your computer, you must have the (OS) Operating system CD. You have to move your important file to another location because formating your system will wipe out all the files you have on that drive. Put the OS CD on your CD-ROM and restart your your system. When system boots it will boot to the CD-ROM if the boot order is set that way. Otherwise you need to set the first boot order to the CD-ROM from BIOS. When the system boots to the CD-ROM you will be asked to press any key to boot from the CD-ROM, do just that and the system will boot from the CD-ROM. Follow the on screen instructruction afterward.

SYSTEM SWITCHES ON AND DETECTS ALL THE HARDWARE BUT WONT GIVE ME THE "PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD-ROM OPTION"


Some computers allow you to select an alternate boot device by pressing the F12 key as you boot up.
If your computer doesn't have this option then go into the BIOS configuration and change the boot order and make the CD-ROM the first boot device and the hard drive the second boot device.

Problem ide


Hi gustabir,
try this first. (If I am understanding you correctly).
Power on the PC, press the Delete key every two seconds untill the boot menu loads. Go to the title, Boot. Set you're boot device's in the correct order. They should be listed as follows.
1st Boot device Floppy drive. (If a floppy drive is connected).
2nd Boot device CD-ROM/DVD drive.
3rd Boot device Hard drive.
(If you're CD-ROM drive is not listed in the bios main menu, than you're CD-ROM drive is not connected correctly). Please check the CD-ROM data cable is firmly & correctly connected), also check the power cable is firmly connected). If you are using more than one CD/DVD-ROM drive on the same data cable, check that you are listing the correct CD/DVD drive in the boot order. To change the drive's order while in the Boot menu, see page 34 in you're manual.
If the above does not address you're problem, please describe the issue/problem again.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
Mike

CD ROM Boot


In the BIOS are you able to "discover" the CD-ROM device? There should be a way such that you can specify what devices are connected to the system.

The BIOS version should recognize what devices are attached to the system.

You may need to "flash" (upgrade) the BIOS. Now a days, BIOS upgrades are available on the manufacturer's website.


Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..
