Changed Boot Priority, Yet Computer Still Checks for Floppy
Sorry if I post to the wrong forum... let me know if I did something wrong.
I'm trying to get one of my computer to read off through its CD-ROM first because I'm going to be using DBAN to wipe-out the hard disk.
Went to BIOS Setup Utility > BIOS > Boot Device Priority. Here's the setup: old (new)
1st Boot Device Priority: Floppy Group / (CD-ROM Group)
2nd Boot Device Priority: HDD Group / (HDD Group)
3rd Boot Device Priority: CD-ROM Group / (Disabled)
4th Boot Device Priority: Network Group / (Disabled)
I disabled the Floppy and Network since they're not originally installed
Saved and Exit the new configurations, pop in the burned ISO media, and reboot the computer.
Once the computer started and loaded, I get the following:
1. FD 1.44MB SYSTEM TYPE-(00)
regardless what key I press (enter, space key, etc) it pops out the same message.
So restarted the computer, and chose a function which allowed me to see a screen that gave me an option: Select a Boot First Device.
I'm given 2 choices. First is the HDD Group and the second is the CD-ROM Group. Obviously I chose the 2nd option, and still, it gave me the same message that I got (see above)
In my DBAN media, it contained the following - did I do something wrong?
CONFIG (file folder)
Any advice... help me.
