mode settings for drives. Which MB ?
If anyone thinks it's relevant I can rattle off my specs. But for the gist of my problem I don't think it's needed.
I power on, and get the MSI screen and can go into BIOS. I've used both internal and external cdrom drives. BIOS recognizes the drive, I select it to be my first boot device. But when it starts to boot with it, I just get a black screen and a blinking cursor. I've tried several different boot CDs. I verified that my XP CD boots up correctly on my laptop.
Anyone got any ideas to try? I'm all ears.
