Answers :

This would not be the operating system. This would be your BIOS settings.
\015\012Enter your BIOS settings and make sure the Hard Drive is listed\015\012properly. Sometthing you did within those settings has changed at the\015\012BIOS is letting you know this as a pause type feature and asking for\015\012your okay to boot to the hard disk anyway.\015\012
When the laptop says to press F1 it is because the computer detected new hardware or you removed of them
\015\012usually must log in bios and save it again
\015\012this will skip the annoying F1 question
