Drive boot sequence

Having changed my boot sequence to CDROM first for installation of XP, is there any compelling reason why this should be changed back to floppy first or doesn't it really matter? I figure that I can always boot into BIOS if necessary to change it when needed. Only reason I can think of is that wear and taer on CDROM might be less if boot sequence never gets to CDROM and this would be more expensive to replace than floppy....

Mine are always set to boot from HDD 1st - my logic being that 99% of the time that's what I want the PC to boot from so why waste time having it check elsewhere first.

Don't think it matters. I have left mine as yours. If I need to use the floppy, I just click on the "A" drive Icon. j.

Might even change mine to the same as leo49, makes sense! ;o)

I agree with the 49er

Hi, When you instal XP, your 'Boot Up' files are put on your Hard Drive. It makes sense to have your HDD-1 first in line. Cheers, Bill
