    I want to format the hard drive but it does not go to cd, I keep getting the login window. Please help...

  • munna1 Feb 12, 2008

    I did exactly what you said and went to the BIOS boot order but I can't move CD to top as the configure boot order is disabled. I can go to the screen to change the configure option but it needs admin password. I don't know what to do...

    Thanks in advance.

Hmmm..well..from what I know of this, you'll need to completely re install the software, and even, perhaps, format your drive, to bypass this issue. Can't use the password hint to jog your memory?

    when you first boot up, press F2, which will take you to the bios setup screen. move the cursor down to the boot sequence, and move the CD to the top, then hit esc key, then restart...that may do the trick..

    hmmm...well..let's can't boot to either hard drive or CD, right? your install or operating system cd in that drive, and when it boots up, press F2...and go to the drives section, and turn off the hard drive, and make sure that cd is turned on. follow instructions on the panel, and you should be fine..then restart system...
