    Hi again folks

    How can I setup the boot sequence of my laptop so that it does CD-Rom - HDD - FDD - LAN.

    I want the CD-Rom first, but don't want the LAN option before the HDD or FDD (it takes forever to boot past this).

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi buddy,
    Dont have ur laptop model but I think it maybe the same for u as well...During the initial boot screen press F12 and set whatever order u wish.
    Alternately goto setup(press F2 during boot proc) and in the tab for boot change the order(F6 for up and F5 for down)..Hope it helps

    Thanks khusro. F12 will have to do, not quite how I would like it.
    Don't know why Toshiba have to do it this way, I prefer having total control from the Bios setup, as to which way my PC will boot up, not just the 6 alternatives Toshiba give.
    I suppose its what you grow up with.

    Hi,

    you have to differ if you have a Toshiba BIOS or Phoenix BIOS. This depends on your Model!

    When you have a Toshiba BIOS you can only change the available settings or you choose your prefered boot device with F12. Otherwise with the Phoenix BIOS you can change a little bit more like khusro wrote!

    Bye
