Try to get into the BIOS - when computer first starts a message bottom left will show.... press F1 to enter Set up it migght show esc F1 or F2 or something like that . Whatever it is - Tap that key AS SOON AS YOU SEE THE MESSAGE. - you may have to have one or two attempts you may be lucky and get it first time.
In BIOS go to the BOOT screen - (usually right arrow key to get there) Usually the top item is "Boot order" highlight it and tap the Enter key
Hilight the CDROM line and follow help file on the right ( maybe F5/F6 to move up/down) move cd to top line... this is the 'boot from' line
Note - to boot from USB stick - it MUST be in place BEFORE you go into BIOS - hilight the USB Stick and move that up to the top.
Tap the F10 key then Enter to save and exit BIOS.
Tap the enter key when "hit any key to boot from CD" appears
Done.
Cheers.

How to wipe clean CF-19 hard drive


If the Panasonic Toughbook CF19 has a Hard Disk Drive,
then you should be trying to wipe it by booting from an
external USB Optical (cdrom) drive.
You have to enter the BIOS by pressing the F2 function key,
and set USB CDROM as the first bootable device.
Then save and exit the bios.
The external optical (cdrom) will now boot
with the proper bootable media.
If you have a HIREN bootable CD then one of the
tools will allow you to WIPE and RE-FORMAT the
internal hard disk drive.
Good Luck.

What do i do it says this on mine this is what mine has 1. IDE0 2. IDE1 3. USB FDD 4. USB HDD 5. Network Boot : Atheros Boot Agent 6. USB CDROM


Options 1 and 2 are internal hard drives. Option 3 is a USB flash drive, option 4 is a USB hard drive. Option 5 is a network boot protocol to boot from a local server. Option 6 is to boot from a USB CD drive.

If your computer does not boot in the current configuration, try selecting IDE1 instead of IDE0. One of those two drives has your operating system on it. If neither will boot, then you will need to install an operating system on one of them by inserting an install disc in a USB CD drive and selecting option 6.

Can I boot my e-machine M6810 from a usb cdrom drive? My build in cdrom fell apart and my usb cdrom works when the computer is on, but I can't seem to boot from the new cdrom I have tried changing the...


in short - yes! any e-machine, or indeed any computer build in last 5 years can be boot-up from usb port.

you need to enter bios and setu-up as first boot-up device "other", "boot from another devices", i do not remember which one is actually in this particular bios

plug in your external usb cd-rom, or indeed bootable usb-memory or bootable hdd and they should boot and work as they are on the computer.

another issue, internal cd-rom cannot be really disabled as only mechanical, external part stop working, it' logic part is still there and cmoputer therefore "see" it. you can disable it by downloading newest bios which have bit more power and tweaks than old one.

How can I boot Windows XP from my USB Disk drive on my DELL Dimension 4500 computer ?


Hello,
When you have switched on your PC, strike F2 several times or DEL to enter to your Bios set up. As sson as you're in, set boot rpiority to USB Disk drive as your priority boot sector instead of Hard Disk drive.
If you don't have CDROM player/drive, you can use USB as priority boot but you may have another installer for reformatting via USB.
Blessings.

Dell l400 problem


1.If you purchase an external USB CD drive you will not need to use your floppy discs for booting. 2. You can connect a USB CD drive to your system. 3. Your system will recognize any device plugged into your USB drive. 4. There is no CD drive available for internal installation in your computer. 5. With the USB CD drive plugged in and the windows installation disc inserted, your computer should take you through the setup program automatically.
