I am currently running XP and am trying to restore to XP.
When restarted and the Dell splash screen pops up i hit ESC and then delete to enter BIOS setup
The desktops uses BIOS Version A11
I have attempted to move the ATAPI CD Rom to the top of the Boot Device list, move floppy to last and even remove floppy completely but on startup instead of information to delete old partition and install new OS it pops up " Invalid Boot Diskette" Insert boot diskette into drive A.
I have the disk in the cd drive and i know it works as a boot disk as i have used it just yesterday on a different pc.
I have even attempted to make the computer recognize the cd rom as the primary IDE Master under IDE controllers.
All this and I still recieve the same message of invalid boot diskette in drive A
Any help at all or ides would be greatly appreciated.
