You can enter BIOS setup or UEFI firmware via traditional method: Boot the PC, while the firmware starts to run, press F2/F1(Fn+F1 or Fn+F2). However, computer boots fast, maybe you often miss the trick to press F2/F1(Fn+F1 or Fn+F2). You can enter UEFI firmware from windows 8 or 8.1.
Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
Removed your power cable and drain power without any power. restart and keep on hitting f12 to get to the boot menu choose ODD then put the OS CD then press enter until its say press any key. If it did not work your other option is reboot and hit f1 or f2 to change the boot sequence on boot option. Restart pc then hit f2 go to boot option and choose DVD/CD to be your first boot option then press f10 restart and it should load automatically.
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer.
Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.
1 . Insert your Windows installation CD. Reboot the computer. Your computer detects the boot media in your drive and asks you to press any key to boot to the Windows installation disk. Press the space bar on your keyboard. A blue installation window is shown.
2 . Press the "R" key to start the Recovery Console process. Press the "1" key to open the command line console. You are prompted for the administrator password. Enter it into the console and press "Enter."
3 . Type the following text into the command line:
copy e:\i386\ntldr c:
4 . Replace "e" with the drive letter for your CD-ROM drive. This command copies the NTLDR file from your installation CD to your hard drive
5 . Remove the CD from the drive and reboot the computer again. The Windows operating system should successfully boot.
If you have the Windows XP install disk (and not an upgrade type) Simply enter your computers BIOS by pressing the key indicated when you first power the laptop on,(Try Delete, F1 F2) and make sure that in the boot order, the CD/DVD drive comes before the main HDD. Once you have the laptop set to boot from CD, insert the windows install disk and reboot the computer. It should say "Press any key to boot to CD/DVD....." Hit a key here, and then follow the on screen Windows installation instructions.
you will need a Windows boot disk / Windows install disk / WinXP disk to reboot the PC and install / or repair your OS
rescue disk will not boot your PC
to enable that you need to enter the BIOS, press F1, F2 or Del to enter BIOS , then you need to look for the BOOT seq in BIOS, change that to CD DVD drive as the 1st boot device, Save and Exit and insert the boot CD and restart
this should give you the solution
Some very old Sharp PCs require a Setup Diagnostics Disk to access BIOS.
Shuttle - Glamor G-Series, D'vo, Prima P2-Series, Workstation, X Mini XPC, Surveillance
Press F2 or Del on startup.
Sony - VAIO, PCG-Series, VGN-Series
Press F1, F2 or F3 after turning on the computer.
Toshiba - Portégé, Satellite, Tecra
Press F1 or Esc after powering on to access BIOS.
The following companies are either closed for business or no longer manufacture or support mainstream computers systems so verifying the following BIOS access information is nearly impossible. I have included what I could dig up for anyone who might be interested: ARI / ALR / AST (Advantage) - Press the Ctrl+Alt+Esc or Ctrl+Alt+Del keys. Cybermax - Press the Esc key. Tandon - Press the Ctrl+Shift+Esc keys.
