Hi, a friend of mine has kindly given me a PC with everything except a hard drive. I had a spare 10gb drive with XP already installed on it. I have connected it and checked the jumpers are set correct on all drives (HDD, rewriter and CD ROM).When I boot up it comes up auto detecting pri master..not detected, auto detecting pri slave..not detected, auto detecting sec master..not detected.
It then proceeds to a screen that says Novell Netware ready firmware and then flashes up a message to boot from local drive press home key.
Then boot failure, insert boot diskette in A: press any key when ready.
I do not know the BIOS password therefore cannot change the boot sequence, does anyone know of a way round resetting the BIOS password without knowing it? Cheers
