Iím trying to run a repair on my friends Compaq Presario 1245 but I have a strange problem. Every time I boot into setup, it will load the setup files and then just try to start windows up. The setup program will boot from the CD, load the drivers and whatnot, but instead of going into the actual setup process (where you can install a clean copy, repair etc), it just tries to boot to Windows automatically (Which doesnít work).
I've tried it even with a Windows 2003 CD and the same thing happens. I have went and reset the bios to their factory settings just in case but that doesn't seem to be the problem (the CMOS battery is dead anyways).
Any help to this would be appreciated as my friend has a bunch of tuning maps for his car.
