So far I am not having any luck getting that disk I made to do what it is supposed to do. When I reboot the computer, the Dell screen loads and I press R but it goes into the floppy diskette seek failure screen. I can press F2 to get into Setup Menu and F8 to get to the Windows Advanced Options Menu and I presume I can press F12 to enter the Boot Menu.
If I press F1 to continue from the failure screen it will go to partial Advanced
Options Menu with only Safe Mode, SM w/networking, SM w/command prompt or Start
In the Advanced Options Menu there is: Safe Mode, SM w/networking, SM w/Command Prompt, Enable Boot Logging, Enable VGA Mode, Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only), Debugging Mode, Disable automatic restart on system failure, Start Windows Normally, Reboot, Return to OS Choices Menu.
Outside of the Safe Modes and Last Known options, I tried the Debugging Mode and they all went back to blue Stop error screen.
Should I try hitting F1, let the partial Advanced Options load, hit Safe Mode and enter then once it starts then hit the R key?
I have tried both disk drives and it looks like it is trying to run on the top drive but the Load Defaults screen takes over. I can get back to the blue error screen by going thru the safe mode and letting all the multi disk thingys load then the blue screen will come up. I sure hope I am not confusing you. I feel confused for sure. I await your response.
