PL1600: how to set boot from CD?

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have a PL1600, it is goodly functioning.
And I can boot from floppy to set up OS.

But can i use CD boot to install OS? and how to set?

I have try to use the utility floppy to see, but cannot find any CD boot option.

Thank you very much.

If you have the system configuration utility (SCU) diskettes then use them to check the boot order as follows:-

Boot the SCU diskettes
At the main menu choose "System Configuration"
Then "Power-On Defaults"
The "Set Standard Boot Order"
Make sure the boot order is set to "A: CD: C:" which should be the top choice.

Save this and reboot.

If you need the SCU diskette builder kit it can be downloaded from here (4 disks required).

I hope this helps.
