I bought a new CD-RW/ DVD combo with the understanding that it was compatible with my notebook.
I have upgraded the bios with the latest RomPAQ from the HP website.
The drive is a Sony CRX830E, my old CD-ROM is a Compaq CD-224E.
When I plug in the new drive and try to boot, the Compaq logo appears it just beeps at me and says Fixed Disk Parameter Table or BIOS Error, System Halted.
I thought it may be a boot order problem in the BIOS so I have tried to change the bootorder, but all I have in my bios is "Computer Setup" - "Advanced" - "Boot Options" - QuickBoot (Enable/Disable)
Notebook Multibay (!st/2nd/3rd)
Notebook hard drive (1st/2nd/3rd)
Notebook Ethernet (1st/2nd/3rd)
With the CD-RW/DVD removed, if I depress the F12 key to enter Network Service Boot it informs me of PXE-E61: Media Failure, Check Cable. But then continues to boot normally
Could somone explain to me am I in the right BIOS? I have read of others with so many other options in their boot options! If not how do I get there? What does each of these options do?
Does anyone know if my combination will actually work? I have no way of setting master and slave/ primary and secondary jumpers.
Any help will be gratefully received.
