Answers :

The screen that I think you're referring to is the OEM BIOS splash screen.
\015\012
\015\012This particular logo / image has nothing to do with your hard drive... it is embedded on a physical chip (EEPROM or ROMBIOS) on your motherboard.
\015\012
\015\012It is possible to make modifications to this particular splash screen (through a hardware hack), but I don't recommend doing it. The screen shouldn't be a problem; it sounds like you might be experiencing a "Boot Order" issue.
\015\012
\015\012I'm assuming you might be having problems with the Boot Order if you're having issues with loading your OS from CD. When you have the Windows CD in the CD ROM and you reboot the system, you should see the following message flash up on the screen (immediately following your OEM BIOS Splash screen):
\015\012
\015\012 "Press any Key to Boot from CD..."
\015\012
\015\012If you don't see this message and your CD ROM Doesn't spin up and begin to load windows...you might have a Bad CD ROM, bad CD "Disc" or...you might not have your BIOS Boot Order set up correctly.
\015\012
\015\012HOW TO FIX IT:
\015\012
\015\012To get into the BIOS Setup on a Compaq Presario system, do the following:
\015\012
\015\012When the OEM Logo Splash screen appears, press F1 to enter the BIOS Setup.
\015\012Note: On certain Compaq Presario PCs (prior to 2002) press the F10 key at the logo screen to enter setup.
\015\012
\015\012To change the Boot order:
\015\012
\015\012Here's the URL for Compaq's Online FAQ for Changing the Boot Order:

\015\012
\015\012Try changing the Boot Device Priority in the BIOS Setup: Make sure that the "CD ROM" entry is moved "Before" the entry for the Hard Drive and Network PXE:
\015\012
\015\012Example Boot Order:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. CD ROM or Removable Media
  2. \015\012
  3. USB
  4. \015\012
  5. Floppy (if you have one)
  6. \015\012
  7. Hard Drive
  8. \015\012
  9. PXE (Network Boot)
\015\012This should help you load the OS successfully from CD (if you're not being presented with the "Press any Key to Boot from CD..." notification when rebooting with the Windows CD in the CD/ROM drive.
