DVD ROM wont boot


Nov 18, 2012
Im stuck in this problem where I want to install the new bios for the ibm 8183 pc using Optical drive. I set he OD as the first boot then HDD 2nd boot. But just gives me a blinking cursor. Tried changing jumper settings and cable and even resetting the bios but still no luck. Hard drive is working fine as it works and boots up. I tried replacing it with a new hdd and does the same... tried replacing the OD with a new OD and still do the same. Im running out of idea what could be wrong with my pc. Any one got an idea?? your help is much appreciated. thanks!
