Question about Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook P5020 Notebook
I'd like to be able to boot from somewhere other than the HDD to speed things up and use less power. Is it possible to do this? What are the steps? How do I tell the BIOS where to boot from? I'm using XP.
Thanks - z
WHEN YOU START UP AT THE BOTTOM OF YOU SCREEN THERE WILL BE BOOT OPTION BUT IT DOES NOT LAST LING SO STARD UP ONCE AND FIND OUT WHAT BUTTON TO HIT - IT WILL BE AN 'F 1-12' BUTTON - THEN JUST RE-BOOT AND HIT THE BUTTON
P.S. IT POPS UP AT THE BOTTOM LEFT OR RIGHT OF THE SCREEN AND MOST LIKLY F10 OR F12
