S10 Loads Bios then Stops, have to Hit Any Key to Load Windows XP

I have a Lenovo S10, after powering on, the just loads the bios screen of LENOVO.  With the F2 & F12 at the bottom of the screen.  If you press F2 to setup & F12 to Boot Menu, it will do so. 

When you press other keys, it will then load windows xp. 

In the Boot Order, I already put the HDD on top (the first) but you have to hit any key for Windows to load.


Also, flashed the bios to version 14CN94WW.  But did not help.

Suggestions?  Assistance?

Hi and welcome to lenovo forum,

to exclude BIOS ... go in BIOS and press F9 to setup defaults....

set in Config page quickstart disabled and Beep disabled

 F10 and exit

unplug PSU and Battery press 30seconds switch On Button ...

Then plug PSU and Battery in ... press Switch On ... if this wait behavior is gone...OK if not ... it could something to do with harddrive ... easy if you have another harddrive to check this , if not save your data and work on other media and recover to factory condition...

overal there is no wait for key in BIOS should boot straight forward into OS without that press any key ...
