Default Reverting to XP - Help! - 01-22-2010, 08:49 PM

OK, I have my XP disc. I have my external DVD-rom via USB running.

Do you think I can figure out how to get OS X to boot from the external drive? No!

Someone please give me a hand. I have no idea what I'm doing with OSX. It's so easy with Win, just hold down f8 and pick where you want to boot from!

I did manage to hit f12 and get to the bios settings but I must have screwed up something in there because now I cant even get to the setup screen, it skips it entirely and goes directly to booting into OS X.

At the Dell splash screen, it should display what button to press for BIOS setup (F2?) and what button to press for the BIOS boot device menu (F12?).

I figured this probably wasn't the best place for this question so I moved it here
