Surprise, surprise. The dang laptop won't boot from the XP Pro cd but boots up fine with the recovery XP Home cd that it comes with.
I read somewhere that Compaq and HP block the computer from reading other OS's. Don't know why.
The question is, how do I unlock it?
I don't want to install XP Home and then upgrade to XP Pro.
Checked Bios. It is the latest version.
Someone please help.
