maybe your right actually..it says in order to run diagnostics i must boot from cd..otherwise i guess i can just download the driver in xp...umm a driver bootable update c.d ? thats a new one on me unless its a bios update ?
n e ways i find on my dell laptop if i choose cd rom as first boot device it wont always work instead i hit whats F12 on my laptop which is "one time boot menu" aka it will boot from woteva device you choose from on there
Can you get your drivers from Microsoft update or your hardware manufacturers website?maybe your right actually..it says in order to run diagnostics i must boot from cd..otherwise i guess i can just download the driver in xp...
but i have also tried hitting f12 and it says boot device not available hit f.. to run setup utility..so ive tried and still doesnt work
yea i was wrong about the boot from the disc to install the drivers...however im still unable to boot from the disc which i need to do to reinstall windowsI installed all my motherboard drivers while in Windows.
I've never heard of installing drivers from BOOT.
Boot into XP as normal. When in Windows insert the Drivers CD. If it doesn't start automatically after a few seconds then click START>MY COMPUTER and then double click on the CD drive.
Then update your drivers.
