In this case, the OP only has windows on the laptop drive, so
changing the settings or disabling the splash screen are the only
options. He was booting from a boot CD, so the USB drive was the
second BIOS drive. But the new laptop can boot from a USB drive, and
the USB drive is the first BIOS drive when you do that. It makes
things interesting when doing the install.
