Change boot cd rom bios300


Your IBM 300 series desktop computer is normally set to boot its operating system directly from the installed hard disk drive.
There are some cases where you may want to boot from a different device, such as loading from the floppy drive to install a new operating system.
In order to change the boot order on the IBM computer you need to access the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) menu.

Close any applications that are still running.
Turn off the IBM 300PI computer and then turn it back on again.
Tap the "F1" key when the "Configuration/Setup Utility" prompt appears at the bottom of the screen.
Tap the down arrow key four times to highlight the "Start Options" entry.


Press the Enter key.
Highlight the "Startup Sequence" entry and then press Enter again.

Scroll down and highlight "First Startup Device."
Press Enter. Scroll through the list of available boot order devices.
Highlight the device you want to use, such as "CD Drive" or "Floppy Drive," and press Enter.

Press the "Escape" key twice.
Highlight "Save Settings" and then tap Enter.
Power off the IBM computer and then power it back on.

I cant reformat my ibm pentium 4 where can i find the advance bios i press all the functions but icant see the advance bios


Try the below steps and I hope it'll work for you.

1) Shut down the operating system and turn off your computer.
2) Press and hold down the F1 key, and then turn on the computer.
3) When an IBM or other logo is displayed or if you hear repeating beeps, release the F1 key. The IBM BIOS Setup Utility will start.
4) Select "Start Options" from the first menu.
5) From the Start Options menu, press <Enter> on the top bullet labeled "Startup Sequence" (it is above all the other options). This brings up a new "Startup Sequence" menu.
6) Change boot order as needed using arrow keys.

I am unable to open bios. Actually I wanted to change the boot sequence for HARDDISK TO CDROM but could not open bios. What to do?


Hi ranjanaghosa,

I see that you need to change the Boot Sequence on you Thinkcentre M55e but could not get in BIOS right.

to be able to change Boot sequence you can also try on tapping f12 as soon as you power the machine ON untill you get the Boot Menu you can also change boot sequence from there.

To get in the BIOS on a desktop you need to keep on tapping F1 as soon as you power the computer ON, but if still this does not work you can try Tapping on the Delete key to get in the BIOS, getting in the BIOS depends on the motherboard some use f1 to get in the BIOS some use Delete to get in the BIOS on desktops.

but using the F12 key can be done as well if the F1 or Delete key does not work.

I hope that this helps.

Have a nica day,

How can i change boot sequence of my desktop


You have to change the boot order at the bios settings. Just after the screen comes up, before windows start up press (repeatly) the F2 key (depending on the model, maybe F1 or del key) and go to the boot sequence. Here change the boot order as you wish.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Operating system corrupted


Hello,
If you had bought your OS, then you would probably be having the bootable OS CD with you.
It is very simple to format your system.
Follow these steps,
1. Restart your system and go to setup by clicking the F2 key.
2. In the setup, go to boot sequence and place BOOT FROM CD at the top of the list. save changes and exit from setup.
3. Now insert the OS CD in your drive and restart the system. The system will now start from the CD.
4. This will take you to the XP setup from where you would be asked to partition the harddisk for formating the OS.
5. follow the steps given by the setup and you have your new formatted OS.
Good luck!
