If i want to format the pc first i hv to change my setup as a first boot device is cd-rom , so what i have to do in ibm motherboard thinkcentre in setup in which section the bootable device order is...


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.

Wont boot, not even from CD, won't open setup or boot options


At first you insert your system disc on your cd/dvd rom driver and restart your computer. Now press F2 or DEL until you get your BIOS option. Now go to advance option then boot option in that. Now change your first boot option to CD/DVD ROM DRIVE and save that change by pressing F10. Now restart your computer and continue your installation. Thank you.

I want change my first boot device as cd rom. my system is ibm p3 slot processor


Restart your computer. When you see the first screen you will have 2 options. One is a BIOS setup. It's either F8 or F1. Once you get into your BIOS (screen will be mostly blue). There will be a boot option screen. Make sure you chance the #1 device to CD-Rom.

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

Then put your disk in rom then it boot with it.
