Gateway 2000 SOLO laptop wont boot
Long story short;I reformatted hard drive in this older laptop with intentions of installing Linux.
Have tried installing several distros from bootable cd,have tried to reinstall w98.
Cannot get it to boot from cdrom or floppy either one .Yes have changed boot order over and over to no avail.
Have installed Linux on my T22 several times with no problems,Have done various desk top installs windows and Linux/older and newer pcs/have done dual boot systems never run into to one that wouldnt
boot from a cd or floppy one.I even pulled the hard drive and hooked it up to my desktop to test it and it tested fine.
All input welcome.................thanks
