    Unhappy IBM Setup Configuration Utility - Change Boot Sequence


    I cannot find a detailed contents list for the IBM Setup Utility (BIOS Settings) so I can change the Boot Sequence to start with the CDROM.

    The closest I get is this:
    http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-45255%20

    Can anyone help me?

    (^^;?(IBM setups doesn't differ from each other, I suppose.)

    If you can change the sequence now, what matters?

    That sure didn't help. The problem is, I cannot change the sequence. I cannot find the path to make the change.

    (^^;??(How can't you change the sequence? )

    If I remember right, there's 4 lines for startups, then you can change each of them by arrow keys. You can get help by F1.

    But if CD-ROM is not available for boot device for some reasons, of course you can't select it.

    Thanks. I couldn't find the selection for sequence. I have now, and you are right, the selections were made with the arrow keys.
