Re: Need Help - CD Boot Error
I have also removed the hard drive from the computer board and tried to boot up the following disks: Windows 98 SE, Windows XP Pro, GParted, and FreeDOS. All of these were tried when the hard drive was removed and I recieved an different error: "Operating System Not Found".
I'm guessing that the BIOS version may need to be flashed at this point. I am thinking that when the bios is running through the boot list (even though cd drive is selected first), it is somehow looking at the hard drive. Or maybe it's not allowing boot disks to run. I really am having a hard time understanding this problem. If anyone has had any thing like this, would really appreciate any help in any direction... Willing to do about anything to revive this laptop.
