I have an IBM NetVista with a P4- which I thought would be great to put Win7/ Xp on.
Thing is, I can't get it to boot up. Error Message on boot up with keyboard Error. Therefore I can't get into the BIOS to change the Boot ORDER. Doesn't matter what keyboard I use- Just won't respond to any command.
I put a HD in with XP on it- but I get a steady beeping sound- until the bars at the bottom of the screen go across in the boot up sequence- but the bars stop at the end - No Welcome- and nothing else. I Just can't get it to BOOT to OS -and can't get to BIOS. Can't use SAFE MODE because the keyboard won't let me select the option. I tried to remove the battery, but still I have this problem.
Since I haven't used the Tower and can't get it to Boot up, I can't say too much more about it.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
