Thank you for the welcome! I am sorry I did not get back right away,,, for some reason I thought I had checked the box to be notified by mail if anyone had responded
What I had done was unhook my hard drive from my desktop tower and in its place
hooked up an old working hard drive that I had laying around,,, as I wanted to reformat it so I could use it as an external storage.
When I was done with the old hard drive reformat, I removed it from the tower,,, and I plugged my desktop hard drive back in,,, and started the system,,, now it stops (instead of continuing on its own),,, at the Phonix BIOS page.
I did not change any settings that I know of
