I have just recently set XP up on my Dell Latitude CPi laptop, i am not to keen and want to revert back to either 2000/98, but i cant do either as i cannot change boot sequence to boot from cd-rom. I know I'm workin on a very old laptop and need some help desperately to revert back. Tried downloading software to wipe hard-drive but they all need to boot from cd-rom. So having no joy. Please one of you kind clever people, help me!!
If you want to go back to 98se (but I cant see why ) use a 98 startup floppy and boot from thaqt to fdisk the drive and re-install 98. Most machines from that time came preset to boot from floppy first
I have no direct experience of the Dell Latitude but from looking on the Internet there is a suggestion that if you press F12 when booting a Dell laptop you should get a drive menu that will allow you to choose the CD as the boot drive.
