We recommended that you print out this help page and have the hardcopy on hand while you are performing this action.

Before you start the computer you should be aware that your network has a DHCP server or you know the computer's IP address and network mask.

If there is a non-IDE disk controller in your system, or you plan to use network disks or external hardware devices, first check the Hardware Compatibility List.

If you plan to use any external device, turn it on before starting the system.

If the motherboard in your computer supports the Serial ATA (SATA) devices, but IDE disks are also present, only the SATA devices should be set to the Enhanced Mode in BIOS.
