Log in to the BIOD using the DEL button (most likely unless it says otherwise at the boot window), then you can change the boot sequence to have the FDD as the first boot drive.

I have a old Toshiba Portege 7100that i am trying to boot from a usb hardrive. When i start the computer up it says starting.Then 2 seconds later it says insert system drive and press any button to boot....


this model is too old to boot from a usb version1
maybe you can flash the bios to upgrade usb1 to usb version 2
or, load the ubuntu linux operating system using a CD

Hardlocks and or Resets!


It sounds like this bios may not be for your specific revision of motherboard. If you were upgrading the bios to solve a specific issue, check to make sure it's compatible with your board.
If you were upgrading the bios just because it's newer, this is always the wrong thing to do to a working system. Re-flash the board with it's original bios.

Trying to boot from windows CD and not working


If its the full windows xp cd by booting it from the cd drive it will erase everything and ask if you want to upgrade or advanced install I think. Your correct in choosing the atapi cd-rom as 1st boot device. The cd should be in the drive on startup. IDE is the type of hard disk drive. I'm guessing the FDD stands for floppy disk drive which you might not have that many but you have that many bay windows available.

Put disk in, shut down computer, Start computer and it should give you the xp disk contents. Be aware of data loss though.

Problems after BIOS update


When XP came out I quickly learned that you can't upgrade motherboards without a complete re-install of XP. It only loads drivers for the chipsets it detects on install. I've read a few work arounds but they all involve manually installing the new motherboard drivers before upgrading. I'm not positive but I think this is what you'll find you did when you upgraded your bios. XP no longer see's it as the motherboard that it installed drivers for originally and it doesn't have the ability to go back in re-install motherboard drivers after the fact. I think if you formated your computer again and re-installed XP again your would be able to see your motherboard periferals again.

Biostar P4M900-M7 SE BIOS ROM Checksum Error


The bios upgrade procedure stopped at half , leaving the bios corrupted. The computer now cannot do a regular boot procedure, this is the reason why it cannot recognise some device. If you are still able to boot from floppy, you can restart bios upgrade procedure from floppy. Just download floppy version upgrade and re do setup. Even if you do not find latest bios version, just download a floppy upgrade that is working, so that you can restart your machine regularly , and then do the update to latest version.
If you are not able to complete the bios setup, the only way to fix your motherboard will be flashing the CMOS chipset with a chip programmer device that will reinstall bios straight into cmos chipset.
You can have this done at the service point, in this case consider also replacing your motherboard.

Update my Intel D845GVSR Bios Version to VA84510A.86A.0056.P20, then my USB driver is not working at all.


I followed the suggestion of changing the BIOS configuration to the recovery mode, however one thing was missing - it required a startup disk and I didn't have one. I then changed the BIOS configuration to the config (pins 2 & 3) mode, booted up and went to the BIOS/CMOS setup and a new menu tab appeared called "maintenance". I went to the advance tab and selected USB configuration and, instead of a blank screen, there appeared a selection for USB support and it showed disabled. I changed the setting to enabled and three more lines of information regarding USB came up, but required not further changes. I went to F10 and saved and exited and I now have me USB capability back.
