    Hi everybody, I'm french, living in Morocco. I have an IBM Netvista 6792 GHU working with Windows XP.

    Every time I switch it on, I have a message PRESS F1 TO RESUME , looping and looping again on this message.

    I pressed F1 and changed BOOT sequence: in system I said REMOVEABLE 1rst, IDE 0 2nd, and in hardware IDE 0 1rst.

    Then in START >>> EXECUTE>>> MSCONFIG, when in OS Windows XP, I clicked on the top button NORMAL START(general) and ACTIVATE ALL(starting) but always the same problem.

    May I have a standard and safe BIOS programming sample ???

    Is it possible to make BIOS ignore removable device ???

    Thank you in advance for your kind cooperation.

You will need to install the XP drivers for you model IBM, you can download them from the IBM website find the link to support and driver download. You could use the driver restore disk that came with your IBM "IF" it came with "XP" installed. BPCS

Can you get into the BIOS configuration to enable the CD and USB drive?
If so enable these devices.
Check the interior of the desktop to see if the CD drive and USB connectors are still connected.

Unable to Acces BIOS on IBM Netvista 607931u w/ Phoenix ROM BIOS


When the IBM Setup Utility program prompt is displayed, quickly press F1.
The prompt is displayed for only a short time.
if you dont see the prompt, tap F1 repeatedly as the computer starts. If it says "starting windows" you've let it go too far and will have to restart again and repeat the process to get into the bios
REGARDS..

IBM NetVista M41 PC Desktop Os Install Impossible


You probably need an OEM version of XP...not that IBM version. If you buy an OEM version, you can use it many computers. A real XP disc will partition, format, and delete partitions on any functioning Hard drive. Don't buy a recovery disc, please. That just sounds WRONG.

A cheaper solution might be a new Hard Drive...but I don't trust your IBM version of XP.

IBM Netvista desktop bios problem


this is more like a workaround that I used on a laptop which cd room drive just failed (and which I did not want to replaced as it was more expensive than the whole laptop)

If you can't select the device you want to boot from.. you may want to partition your hdd and format it so it loads a dos operating sytem .. use another machine and a win98 startup disk to do this then copy your I386 folder from your winxp cd into the new formatted hdd so when you put the hdd back into the IBM machine it loads dos and then going into the I386 folder you can run a winnt command for you to install the os.
