:tazz: i recently wiped my hard drive because it had 2 viruses on it. now, when i try to boot from a cd or floppy, the computer loads and stops at: "Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM :" and i cant boot from a cd or floppy. i cant do anything but go into the BIOS and fiddle around.


i would greatly appreciate any information about this topic from any one.
