Re: How to boot from CD - Thinkpad 700

 

I find that with the older ibm thinkpads you have to set usb to "enabled" in the config area of the bios.

Then for additional insurance I might actually set the CD rom (or USB) I'm trying to boot from as 1st in boot order.

Finally I try to engage the manual boot menu at the splash.

After that I have been known to use my sledgehgammer and forget the whole idea-but that's just me.

...oh -not if it's a customers machine tho.
