Now, by default, the boot options is floppy drive, network and then harddrive. If anybody can help me out, please let me know. Thanks

I searched for hours for a solution to this. Here it is:

1). Restart your computer, NOT using ctrl - alt - del
2). Press F1 when guided to.
3). When you get into the config menu, select Start Options, then hit enter twice.

There are all the options you need! Cool, huh?

If you dont get the option by using the page up/down, or =/- keys or up/down keys when in the bios to alter the first boot device, then your pc was built using the old bios settings in the days before cdrom support was used to install operating systems.

Blue screen when installing os

If you are trying to install the Windows XP from scratch on the computer, please BE SURE that you put the Hard Drive on "Compatibility" mode in BIOS, which was defaulted to "AHCI" (Compatibility is also known as IDE).

Otherwise, you will experience the "blue screen" issue. To change that setting, you need to do the following:
1. Press F2 when booting up the computer
2. Select 'Config', then 'Serial ATA (SATA)'
3. Change controller option to 'Compatibility' / 'IDE'

IBM NetVista 6578-RBG Windows XP hanging

It seems, that you should replace motherboard, I've seen this kind of problems in my office, after year or two you won't be able to turn it on at all. In my opinion, it's bad quality capacitor on motherboard.
Any way there is little chance that it cold be bad PSU, but it's really small chance.
