  15. 15. Dowadge-Sinanju BIOS-test.fm Page 15 Sunday, September 16, 2012 2:28 PM  Be careful of the operating environment when booting from a CD or you may overwrite files by mistake.  A bootable CD-ROM has either a floppy disk or hard drive format. When the bootable CD-ROM is used, drive allocations change automatically without changing the BIOS setup. If floppy disk format is used, the CD-ROM becomes Drive A. The CD-ROM will only take drive C: (hard drive format) if the internal hard drive is not pres- ent or is disabled. The bootable CD-ROM can never use a C: designation if a formatted internal hard drive is present since the C: designator is always reserved for the internal drive. The boot sequence ignores the new drive designations, but your application software will use the new designations.
