Question about Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop
I have optiplex GX280 tryed to change the boot order, it changed but infornt of CD BOOT it shows (Not present) but the DVD Rom is working, just want to reinstall windows
When the pc in post usually on dells bios there is a boot menu option it is usually f12
if you don't know what your doing in the bios it is not a good place to test your skills after pressing F12 just choose cd rom for boot

Thanks for replying Jose! Pressing F-12 does allow the choice for the PC to boot from the internal CD Rom or an external USB CD Rom drive. Unfortunately, it does not recognize the external USB port DVD Drive. I believe that this BIOS simply will not recognize the USB DVD during the boot-up process. It does "see" it immediately after the Windows boot so perhaps the driver just doesn't load until Windows does.

U can change the boot order in bios under boot and boot sequence. if it doesnt boot control is the cd rom rightly connected.
