    Hello.. I am planning to install WinXP so I upgraded the BIOS to the
    latest that I could find (11/99, I think) and when I go to the BIOS
    setup (F12) there is no boot menu that I can find and of course it
    wont' boot from the CD. Is there another way to get to the boot
    menu???

    Thanks!

    I go to the BIOS
    No. Well, unless you can find a generic or manufacturer supplied appropriate
    BIOS flash that will give you the selection. But you risk killing your board
    if you use any other than a Compaq supplied BIOS flash.
