A friend brought me this Dell Latitude D600 with a boot problem. At the end of the boot process, it would display "no bootable devices found". The bios
found the hard drive, just couldn't boot from it. I tried a repair install....same problem. I tried using recovery console to run chkdsk, fixboot, fixmbr, bootcfg /rebuild, and nothing worked. He said he didn't need anything on it, so I formated and reinstalled Windows XP. After installing all the drivers and removing the CD, it still does it. I used a different Windows disk, same thing. After a lot more fiddling around, I discovered if it had the Windows install disk in the DC rom, it would load Windows. I have to choose to boot from CD, then when it says to press any key to boot from CD, I do nothing. It loads Windows! I poked around a little and find it's fairly common with this laptop, but can't find a definite solution.
I'm open to ideas.
