  1. If you are sure that you have tried the boot options in the BIOS, i cannot help you.

    The Intel logo:
    Look somewhere in the the Advanced BIOS Features for something like "Full Screen Logo".
  2. also you can try to find the key that will take you too the boot menu after post i think it would be something like the ESC key but if it is a new system then your friend should still have the Manuel so check for it in there
  3. there is a boot menu other than bios, but that does the same thing just goes to a black screen and stops.
  4. Change the first boot device from the HDD to the DVD drive, in the BIOS. Check to be sure the cables to the dvd drive are connected correctly.
