Thanks in advance, regards.
To any Inspiron XPS Gen 2 owner: I need some bios information please...
The XPS Gen 2 manual lists the option in bios just like the I9300's manual but the choice is missing in the bios menu, that's what I'm trying to figure out
I don't even have the option on my machine so its almost certainly never been an option on any Dell BIOS.
No offense but I'd like to hear it straight from an actual/current owner if you don't mind.
Thanks anyway. Cheers!
well I for one cann't see why their isn't theirs and option on the latitude series D600,D800,D505,not sure about the D400. D810, D610,. D820,D620, and D830 models. just started working on a XPSM170 have to check it you just have to work around the dell bioses a bit like on the D505, 600, 800 you get the main bios page and hit alt P and pass through pages of the bios theirs one that list boot options . and you can enable or disable a deviceby hit the space bar if I remember right. or by selecting it move it up the boot order or down by pressing the porper keys have to look down at bottom right of page tell you the porper keys to press think its the u and D keys. I always set mine so the secondary drive media cd/dvd drive bay hard drive caddy option was before the primary laptop hard drive. think it was something like floppy CD/DVD media bay drive USB drive then primary hard drive. their was even an option to boot from a network drive. all of which could be moved up above the primary hard drive in boot order. on the 810, 610, if I remember right was the same boot screen as the later D820,620 830 so model it all on one page you have to scroll down to get to the boot options forget what its called right now just open all the availbe bars and extra info pops up. one will be boot sequence and again yo can move stuff up or down in sequence including a media bay drive or USB or Network drive. of course that might be the difference with the Latitude series. and to answer the question yes its their on the XPS M170 too and it called boot sequence under the system tab bar if its closed hit the + sign opens up scroll down to boot seqence . hit the enter button to enable access. hit space bar to enable bisable device drive. and the up or down arrows to select a device drire and the U and D keys to move device drive up or down in boot sequence. its that simple you just have to look. I know this is true as I've work on all the above mensioned models built from spare parts salvaged laptops for parts. etc. even done the equivlents inspirons and precisions. M60 M70. might be late for the first person but might help someone else forgot to look at the date.
