Can any one help? How do i get to next step if F6 does not work i also tried different keyboard any solutions?

F6 or F8

by TheChas In reply to Installing a third party ...

I just did this a few weeks ago, but can never remember which F key it is.

Just make sure it is the key displayed on the screen.

After you hit the F key, it takes several minutes for the installer to reach the point where it is ready for you to change disks and load the driver / software.

Just be patient.

No that's right it's the F6 Key

by OH Smeg In reply to F6 or F8

F8 is for Safe Mode.

However you do have to wait till you are prompted to load the Floppy. When the First Blue Screen appears push and hold down the F6 Key for a few seconds and then wait till you are prompted.

If this still isn't working look at your Keyboard is it a USB Keyboard?

If so use a PS2 Keyboard as these do not need to wait till Windows is loaded to start the Drivers for them. You may also have to switch the Function Keys on depending on your keyboard. If you have a F Lock Key you need to press that first before pressing the F6 Key.
