I have the same machine - the way I got around this was to change the disk
mode in the BIOS from IDE to RAID - this prevents the pre-existing MS OS booting
in dual boot mode - but then I was not interested in using Windows once F8
Would be interested to know if others had a better way to get working with
this specific machine.
