Messed up ...I changed BIOS to only boot the CD drive and now I can't get into BIOS

2008-12-09, 2:24 AM

I locked myself out of Windows 2000 Professional by forgetting my password. I then was going to try to load a fix i saw on the internet but I needed to boot from a CD.  I went into the IBM "Access IBM" and changed the boot order to only boot from a CD.   I think I messed up.  I try to boot to the CD and it doesn't work and then it says no operating system.  I then want to go back into the "Access IBM" to change the boot order again, but when I push the access ibm button it doesn't go into the bios like before.  I think i am out of luck. any ideas?

 

thanks

Welcome to the forum!

 

Pressing F1 during boot should get you into BIOS, and you can change your preferences there.

 

Good luck. 

Cheers,

George
