I want to reformat my computer and usually I would set the motherboard's booting proirty with DVD drive first then Harddrive, but it wouldn't work. It would just have a blank black screen with a blinking dash line and start loading windows xp. I also disabled quick boot, but that didnt help. Any ideas Asus users?
 
Have you tried pressing F8 after POST? This should bring up a boot menu so you can select a boot source. Also, if you happen to be running an SATA DVD drive, make sure it is plugged into one of the bootable SATA ports (the red ones).
