    Hello

    I am having a problem installing XP that I havent come across before. I am installing XP on a friends computer he has boughten used. Unfortunately the BIOS isnt configured to load from the CD/DVD drive as the first option. The problem is the BIOS is password protected and I don't know how to format and install a fresh copy on this computer. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank-you

    Welcome to TSG....

    If the BIOS is password protected I would suggest calling the manufacturer of the computers tech support to resolve that, At the present time we are unable to assist with anything to do with Passwords for anything, basically because of the fact that we can not determine the ownership of the computer and the fact that this is a security matter. Please read the Tech Support Guy rules below:

    Once you get this solved doing the install from the cd drive will be a breeze.
