Having problems with your IBM NetVista PC Desktop ?

I cant install a new operating system into my HDD. My setup does not suportt boot from CD.


Answers :

I found this process on a forum. It may work on your model.

1) Shut down the operating system and turn off your computer.
\015\0122) Press and hold down the F1 key, and then turn on the computer.
\015\0123) When an IBM or other logo is displayed or if you hear repeating\015\012beeps, release the F1 key. The IBM BIOS Setup Utility will start.
\015\0124) Select "Start Options" from the first menu.
\015\0125) From the Start Options menu, press <Enter> on the top bullet\015\012labeled "Startup Sequence" (it is above all the other options). This\015\012brings up a new "Startup Sequence" menu.
\015\0126) Change boot order as needed using arrow keys.

Hope this works out for you. If so, please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks for asking here!
The Bios Settings need to be changed to boot from The ATAPI drive. When you turn on computer press the F2 or F1 or Delete button, sometimes its F10. Once you are in the bios setting look for boot devices. Follow the on screen instructions to change the boot order. I hope this helps.
