I just tried it with several other mixed dvd's and cd's that were supposedly 
bootable, and they all did, except the F10 dvd.  I just burnt another, same 
brand of media as the Fu9 I have installed on it, and from the same spindle 
of HP dvd-r disks, just for grins.  And it won't boot in that drive either.
The bios does look at the disk, it just doesn't like what it sees I guess.

This bios ignores that, I had a hell of a time catching it and memorizing it.

I learned decades ago, that when I mix alcohol with a cold, its an instant 
strept throat & 2 weeks on Erythromycin 500's, 3x/day.

Naw, just a place for all her media, a 42" tv, the tuner/amp, dvd player and 
somewhere along the line a decent turntable so I can rip about 300 pounds of 
12" lp's accumulated over a 34 year period of teaching primary school kids 
something about music.  8 drawers in the bottom of it, 2 big enough for lp's 
on edge. I don't think they will hold them all either, but...

Don't have any that big, but I have noted that a layer of wood chips from the 
planer or jointer sure help.  Then the missus wanders in and ask's me when am 
I going to clean this mess up. ;)p  I don't think she connects the sawdust to 
the slowly dwindling stack of cherry, and the slowly growing piece of 
furniture.  Sorta like carving a big block of granite into an elephant, you 
hammer and chisel away that which is not part of an elephant.  Eventually, 
somebody has got to run a broom or vacuum.  Two vacs in there, but tied to 
the saw and sander ATM. And the next time I dump them will overflow a 
contractor cleanup bag, the big black ones.

You will usually find me in a tan confederate style cap, you can't get the 
sawdust out of a knit.  Slap this one on your knee and its as good as new. :)

That is this box.
