i try to boot puppy linux from an usb stick.
it works when there is no hdd in the notebooks ide (ata) hdd slot.
but when i insert a hard drive, it tries to boot from this one.
reconfiguring the bios boot order does not help as the computer seems to identify both, usb stick and ide harddrive, as hard disks and i can only prioritize some "hard disk". external drive or cd-rom on first place do not change anything.
i also tried to put the ide harddrive into secondary mode using a jumper but it didn't help. the notebook still tries to boot from this one.
any suggestions? thanks
edit: notebook is a siemens amilo M1425.
