Strike f1 retry boot then how to set boot sequence


Boot sequence is usually accessed by typing either F12 or F10 when starting the computer. If you have changed nothing in your computer and you are getting a book error you may have a failed harddrive.

How can i boot my dell studio from cdrom so i can reinsall from external drive?


Turn on the machine, press F12 once the Dell splash screen is displayed, the boot menu will show up. From the Boot Menu, use up-down arrow keys on the keyboard and highlight the CD/DVD/CD-RW and press Enter.You will see another menu, select "Boot from Cd-Rom" and press enter to select it. The system will boot up from the CD-Rom. Please note that this settings is only for one time boot, once the system is restarted, the boot sequence will be restored to the previous saved settings. If you wish to set it from the Bios, enter the Bios settings by hitting F2 or Delete (should be shown at the bottom of the Dell splash screen) while you see the Dell Splash Screen. In the Bios settings menu, go to Boot options and make the changes with the boot sequence.


Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

DELL latitude 100l, someone disabled all boot devices then set config / administrator password. Please help


Boot Priority on Dell Latitude 100L
  1. Turn On Your PC
    Have you ever noticed the messages that pop up on the screen as soon as you turn on your PC? These messages tell you a key combination you can press to enter "Setup" or the "BIOS." Watch your screen and see if you can read what keys to press.
  2. Press the Keys to Enter Setup Mode
    If you did not see a message telling you what keys to press, try tapping the following possibilities as you turn on the machine:
    • Esc
    • F2
    • F12
    • F10
    • F1
    After pressing Esc or other key, you will most likely see instructions telling you how to enter "Setup Mode". Follow those instructions.
    tip.gif On some computers, you must hold down the key before you press the power button to turn on the computer. For example, if you are converting a Toshiba laptop to a Linux Workstation, you must hold down the Esc key and then press the power button. The computer then asks you to press F1, and you can then set the "Boot Priority."
  3. Using the Arrow Keys, Choose the "Boot," "Boot Order," or "Boot Priority" Option
    The menu of choices you see will be different for different kinds of computers. Remember that the choice you want is the "Boot" order or "Boot Priority." On some computers, this is called the "Start Up Options" or "Start Up Sequences." You are going to change where the PC will look for boot information when it starts up. (CD-ROM, HARD DRIVE/HDD, LAN, FLOPPY, USB). If you wish to boot from your Hard drive, then select it as your First Priority.
  4. Using the instructions on the screen, save your settings and start up your PC. The PC must boot from the HDD. Regrds

I cant get it to let me change the boot setting so i can boot from cd


The moment you turn on your computer start taping F12 key on your keyboard, It will lead you directly to boot menu where you can select CD rom as your boot device, if that doesn't work that go to BIOS and under Bios you will either see "boot sequence" or "Boot" options from where you can change the sequence of your boot devices.

I have a dell latitude laptop and I can't change the boot order as it is locked with an admin password. I looked for the bios battery in the manual to remove and put back but there doesn't deem to be one....


Locate the BIOS clear / password jumper or dipswitch and change its position. Once this jumper has been changed, turn on the computer and the password should be cleared. Once cleared, turn the computer off and return the jumper or dipswitch to its original position.

If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

Another way to try is use the BIOS mfg "backdoor" password to see if you can get in. It's a little more risky as if you're wrong three times, it may lock you out.
Here's a list of backdoor passwords for many of the BIOS manufacturers... scroll down page 1/2 way to see start of listing...

Administrator password help/ password boot cd


Hello pink,

In order for your PC to read your CD on boot, you don't have to enter your BIOS settings. When you start your computer, press the F12 button repeatedly (like F12-F12-F12-F12), and your pc will ask you which boot device you would like to use.
http://ice.he.net/~hedden//images/F2_for_Setup_Dell.jpg

It will show you a screen like this:

Just select your CDROM in the list, and hit enter. this will read your bootable CD.

I hope this helps.
Jerry.
