The default boot order settings for the computer are configured in the factory. The default boot order for HP notebook PCs is listed below.
- Floppy disk drive
- Optical drive (DVD, CD-ROM)
- Hard drive
- USB device
- Network adapter
I have just been looking at the HP site and rather than going back into setup you can do this
To access the Boot Device Options window, turn on the computer and immediately press the esc key to display the Startup
Menu and then press F9
This window presents the standard choices available in your BIOS for determining how your computer will attempt to boot the operating system on its next restart. Using the F9 option does not permanently change the way in which your computer attempts to start. It will only apply to the current startup process.
I am beginning to suspect that you are going no further with this until you can connect an optical drive by usb, so that we can get into recovery console.
The lack of an optical drive on some notebooks, has always presented a problem in this situation.
Was there any previous sign of everything not being correct before you had this problem.
