I have been figuring out the extensive BIOS options for the boot sequence, while fitting an empty SATA harddisk.
It seems to me the S50 does not detect an IDE optical drive, and the bios only says No operating system found and fails to boot from CD. (The SATA drive is the only device in the detected IDE list)
I am going to replace the IDE cable and try a different power connector, but maybe you have some advice for BIOS settings? Can someone explain the different boot sequence modes and what is the most common setup?
This is the second machine that acts like that, and I have another 10 to go. I had a few machines before that had no problems booting from CD.
Mucho bliged if you can enlighten me on this one. I am an experienced home pc systems technician.
