That worked on my Magic PC at the office last month.
I just resurrected my old dell and I thank everyone who helped out with answers to my questions,but I have one more every time I boot it tells me to hit f1 to continue then it finishes booting up normel,how do I get rid of the f1 halt? thanks
I just found the discussions about this issue.
Here's the step to follow.
Try this 1.
Go to your BIOS and load default settings. Also check the date and time in BIOS.
If you don't have a floppy drive then Disable the Floppy Mode option in BIOS.
Look for the option "Halt On" and set it to "No Error".
Save the settings and exit from BIOS.
If the problem still exits, change the CMOS battery --> Go to BIOS and load
default settings --> Make sure to disable the floppy mode if you don't have a
floppy drive --> Set the first boot device as "HDD" and save the settings and
exit from BIOS.
Maybe this will help you.
Have a blissful day!
