Puzzling thing about bios boot sequence

  xania 12:46 25 Jan 2006

Don't know, but I suspect the logic may go something like this. When PCs first came along, the floopy boot process was written and its not been touched since - by the time the CD version came along, others realised that CDs can be left in the PC which would not be bootable and hence wrote more sophisticated code. In fact the latest code, when it identifies a bootable CD AND a bootable Hard Drive, gives you the option of which to use - wouldn't it be wonderful. But hey - many PCs now come without a floopy drive so there you go.
