Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop
I have a IBM Netvista desktop and under bios settings, i am unable to get first boot device option. I have reseted it still no luck. I have formatted the hard drive and unable to boot it now....Please help me out to resolve this.
Nitin Lal Windows xp is not being installed...anyway...
This is more like a workaround that I used on a laptop which cd room drive just failed (and which I did not want to replaced as it was more expensive than the whole laptop)
If you can't select the device you want to boot from.. you may want to partition your hdd and format it so it loads a dos operating sytem .. use another machine and a win98 startup disk to do this then copy your I386 folder from your winxp cd into the new formatted hdd so when you put the hdd back into the IBM machine it loads dos and then going into the I386 folder you can run a winnt command for you to install the os.
