    Salutations and greetings!!

    who can remind me what It/was that I must've forgot'n with my problem being that I am unable to get my (HP)"System Recovery" cd-rom to boot after I set the bios so as to "boot cd" by checking boot sequence settings and drives enablement, I can hardly imagine I forgot waht I'd done a million times, Perhaps I accidently changed some bios "preferences" I am stumped on this- almost as if "painted into a corner"
