Hey there, just got a college issued laptop. came with windows went to install BSD on it, to find that i can't modify my boot sequence in the BIOS. the HD is the only thing in the boot order, so pulling drives isn't gonna help. the BIOS is passworded, and as the laptop is an IBM, it's not a simple "pull the battery to reset the CMOS" problem. The password information is stored in the EEPROM. That's not a simple task to flash. I cracked the Administrator password on the laptop with l0phtcrack (they had LM hashes enabled --- idiots), but unfortunately, that password didn't work on the BIOS. I know that I can just transplant the HD to another system, install BSD on it, then move the HD back and have to do a bit of configuration, but I don't want to do this for some odd reason. So I must ask, is it possible to boot from CD via the window's c:/boot.ini?
