    Changing boot order from OS


    Is there anyway to change the boot order, I mean between floppy,CD,network from the OS itself? Can i control BIOS from OS. What if there is/isnt a Bios password?
    Say I want to reinstall OS in a remote machine and the boot priority of network is down. How do i do?

    AFAIK, there isn't any way/workaround to control BIOS through OS. You can reset BIOS password easily. Just remove battery from Motherboard.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Normally you should be able to press F12 at boot, and select the order.
