Question about IBM 300PL (PC 300 PL 733) PC Desktop
When i try to save bios settings, it does not remain saved. The highlighted order i.e. cd rom, hard disk, etc disappears and the sequence cannot be saved. when i restart the computer, first boot becomes floppy drive and the computer cannot be started by hard disk. Plz help. Thanks
There are different methods for BIOS'es, but.........
1) This method has it where you use the appropriate key (Down Arrow key?), and highlight the boot device you want, in the list.
Then you press the Enter key.
From there you use the appropriate Change value key, and move the boot device to the top of the Boot Order list.
(Page Up/Page Down, or +/- keys)
Then you press the Enter key again, and you are back to the main Boot Order menu.
Now press the appropriate key (Example - F6), and Save Changes.
Or there is a Y/N, or Yes/No to highlight, and then press the Enter key.
You MUST Save Changes, or it will be like you have done NOTHING at all.
2) This style has it where you highlight Boot Order, and then use the appropriate Change Value key, to move the boot order around.
For example you press the Change Value key, and after pressing enough times, the boot device you want will be at the top of the list.
The press the Enter key, and go through the procedure of Saving Changes.
The navigation guide is at the Bottom of each BIOS menu screen.
Does not state navigation guide, though.
Individual navigation comments are to the right side, for each submenu in Boot Order.
Read carefully, and see how to properly set HDD 0 / IDE 0, as the first boot device.

hi! try this. reboot your cpu, then press the CMOS setup key (del), then select load default setting, then go to hard disk detection settings, select the LBA setup. I believe you know how to manipulate the CMOS setup configuration. if still doesn't work out, bring it to the service center near you and ask for assistance, Im sure they would love to help you. Have a nice day!

The f10 is usually the save and exit or exit options key. Your particular version of BIOS should tell you in one corner of the screen.
