I have gotten a second handed eMachine D260 series laptop. Unfortunately, the BIOS is password protected, and the previous user was dumb enough not to remove it, nor set CD-ROM as the primary boot device.
At the moment, I cannot install windows on this laptop if I do not remove this password.
The laptop uses PhoenixBIOS.
Also, I tried to let the computer boot from the CD rom by removing the hard drive, and plugging it back in afterward, the installation program cannot find my hard drive in this case.
