Bootup hangs on "Boot From CD" prompt....
Just wondering if anyone has seen this problem before....
I have an SP13000, with a Panasonic slim DVD drive in a USB enclosure. In the BIOS, I have the 1st boot device being the DVD drive, and 2nd device being the internal HDD.
When I boot up the PC with a bootable CD in the drive, it will boot to the CD perfectly. When I boot up the PC with the USB enclosure powered off, it boots up to Windows XP perfectly. However, when I boot up the PC with the USB enclosure powered on and NO CD in the drive, it just hangs at the "Boot from CD" prompt. I tried pressing "n", "esc", "y", "enter"....nothing seems to wake it up. Sometimes, if I stick in a bootable CD at this point, it continues the boot process, but that is sporadic.
On a normal PC, when there's no CD in the drive, the boot process realizes that and boots from the second device. Is this acting different because of the USB enclosure involved?
Any suggestions are appreciated!
