Thanks. I’m making some progress. I rarely use the power-off since it sometimes causes a loss of the OS. I can re-boot from within if necessary then usually save the m/c state. I powered off (Mandriva – host W7) & sure enough I got into the Settings. I enabled the USB Controller. For the CD/DVD there was only 10 APIC & EFI to be enabled – so I enabled them. The OS failed to boot with no end of error messages so I removed the enabling ticks & then booted up ok.
…… some experimentation with the other OS’s will be the next job … Cheers
