I know when to press it.
I know the keyboard works fine.
I did a CMOS reset.
It'll come up 'Press F1 to continue', pressing F10 at that point should take me to the BIOS but it just boots Windows *rageface*
I can't get in to setup. Seen lots of users with the same problem on 90's Compaq's but no solutions.
Compaq refers to a 'diagnostic partition' on the hard disc - is this also used for the setup program?? I know setup/diags are seperate but can't tell from what little documentation is left as to weither setup is in the BIOS or HDD. I know diags is HDD.
(computer is semi-vintage but not quite, P200MMX)
I've got the setup disk images, and going to try fix it tonight, was just curious if anyone remembered these and could give me a heads up. I don't want to unnessecarily remove the partitions to install diags unless I need it for setup because it has a nice original working install of NT 4 SP6 already on there. Also have ROMPaq 2.2 to flash the BIOS. Got stuck last night because my i7 doesn't like floppy drives.
Edit: also who in their right mind makes a computer with ten buttons on the front and not a single one of them is a normal ATX power button!?!
