Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
I''ve a Dell small computer I'm trying to a re-format HD with XP SP3 to install an other version and partition the HD....I tried to launch the computer with the DVD in the reader...it doesn't launch. I tried F2 and F12 with all available option (1 untill 6) and there was no way to start the system from the DVD reader. Any solution?
You have to go into bios and make the 1st boot order device your cd /dvd rom. (disable hd, other dvd's if you have them and floppy if you have one). Also you should disable boot from other devices if it's there. This will allow you to directly boot from the cd and reformat. Remember to enable HD and make this your first boot order after windows starts the first time. hank
