Boot device selection problem- p55a-ud4p

Hi all, my bios is f6. I was trying to set up xp as a dual boot option last night on my windows 7 64 machine. After the first file loading, xp setup turns off your machine and reboots it. Of course at this point I had to set up the bios to boot from cdrom (first) and harddrive (second). What I expected to happen, was once the message, "press any key to boot from cdrom" was ignored long enough, the boot would proceed on the harddrive, and setup would proceed. Instead, minor visual artifacts appeared in three small places on the screen and the computer froze. Any ideas appreciated. Bob

    Solved....the hard drive was the cause of the hang.
