Look for the boot order options in the setup or pay attention at the actual startup of the laptop when the IBM logo is being displayed. You will notice a message on the screen indicating which button to press to select the "boot order" or "boot options". Press the button (ussually one of the F1 - F12 keys) and you will be presented with a choice of which device to use to boot from.

How i'll start to formate my dv6 hp laptop 2163tx step by step i'hv my recovery cd


Put the CD/DVD in the machine and re-boot it. If it doesn't readt it from the start you'll need to change the boot drive order in the machine's BIOS Setup which you get to when the machine is just starting up (look for the key to press during the boot up process). After you set the CD ROM to be the first boot drive - the recovery disk should boot the machine and get you going.

If your CD-Drive is IDE and you have IDE HDD you need to remove or set correctly jumper on the back of CD-Drive. I think by default it's setup to be Master, and HDD also Master, so you need to give somebody Slave priority neither HDD/CD

Did you re-install from the IBM "System Restore" CD-ROM disks, or did you re-install from a "generic" Windows CD-ROM?

If the former, then the IBM disks should have installed the correct device-drivers for the IBM video-adapter.

If the latter, then you need to access IBM's web-site, select your IBM model, and select your Operating System, and download/install the device-drivers for the video-adapter that is specific to the particular model that you own.

Getting problem in formatting the IBM PC


check if the cable from the cd rom connected to your ibm pc if its ok , also check the master, slave configuration pins into the back of your cdrom. make sure that theres no conflict between the hard disk and the cdrom. Your cd rom may probably cannot be detected. make sure that it is working first. then install the hard disk. The hard disk must be in primary master and the cd rom must be in primary slave. then try booting it to your cd rom. also, try checking if your windows xp setup disk is bootable, it means that it can boot from cd rom. PM me if you have other experiences after doing what i adviced. Thank You.. heres my email. jmizpahadonai777@gmail.com
