Terminal Capio 620

Hi,

I have the same problem. I want to run any Linux from USB Stick on my Capio. I've entered inti BIOS but it seems to be old. I think it should be updated and then I will boot my capio from USB (or from CD-ROM plugged thru USB port). But I don't know how to do that!

Maybe You solve Your problem? Please let me know if You solve Your problem! Mail me: lookz@poczta.onet.pl

Thank's

The BIOS don't support USB bootable devices even with the LEGACY option ENABLED (it's only for keyboards or mouse), but ther is a way, open the box and you will notice a IDE heather on the board, the problem is it's not a standard 40 pin IDE heather, it's a mini IDE like for laptop HDD's, so what i did is i've purchessed two IDE adaptors from MINI do standard IDE, spliced the power cable for powering the devices, conected a standard flat 40 pin IDE ribbon cable to both adapters and VOILA i have a verry thin silent computer with a 15GB (MASTER) hard drive and a 52X CDROM (SLAVE), obviously with that hardware i can't close the box anny more but i'm running LINUX (DSL) fine.

cheers!

I have an older pc (Internet Computer) with no way on the bios to boot from usb and the cd drive is fried. How do I change the bios or upgrade the bios to allow for usb booting for installing linux?


Hi-if your PC is older than a few years, you may not be able to get it to boot from a USB stick. What you need to do is find out the manufacture and model of your motherboard (you will probably be best just to remove the side of the computer and have a look at the main motherbaord-this information should be printed somewhere). Once you know the board details, go to the manufactures website and see if there is a bios update that will add USB booting functionality. If there isn't, then you will need to replace the DVD drive and do it the old fashioned way. Hope this helps

I ahve MSI u210 light, i want to know why is now takes long during booting... i ahve already formatted it but still the same.


Here are a few non-hardware-specific suggestions that have worked for me, not in any certain order, but I'd update the BIOS and try the first suggestion:

Unplug all of your peripherals, everything on the board (except HDD and RAM of course), and see if it boots faster. Only leave one stick of RAM in (primary slot), replace it with another stick each boot. If boots faster, replace everything one at a time, booting after each, until you find the problem device.

Try another HDD, make sure it's on the right SATA channel in the BIOS. Or even better, boot from a USB stick with DSL, Puppy Linux or Ubuntu (or whatever flavor you like). Watch the terminal on boot, see if it hangs on a certain device -this works in safe mode too.

Check your BIOS, make sure everything is legit, if it has a "fast boot" select it. May as well update the BIOS too, that may fix everything. You've probably done that though.

Poke it with a stick.

I have a Neoware CA10, but I can't get into the Bios. In fact, I can't get into anything, no OS, no Bios.


do you hear the speaker beep when power is on?
If no beep first try resetting the BIOS with the use of the jumper inside the unit, if it's still not working, try removing the RAM module, if you hear beep's replace the defective RAM module, if it still not working than sorry IT'S DEAD

Good luck!

I want to charge the battery from the pc?


Linux-based Acer Aspire One Non-Charging Battery Solution


STEP 1: On a separate PC:
1. Go to www.support.acer.com or http://gd.panam.acer.com/home/
2. Click on Driver & Downloads
3. Select Product Family “Netbook”
4. Select Product Line Aspire One
5. Select your Product Model i.e.: AOA150 (located under your computer, after MFG.Date:xxxx AOA 150 – xxxx)
6. Click on the BIOS tab below (don't worry if you don't see Linux listed – BIOS is OS-independent)
7. Download BIOS to a temporary folder on your PC
8. Extract and make sure you know where you put the extracted files. You will only need three of them.

STEP 2: On a separate PC:
1. Ensure a USB memory stick is plugged in and run UNetbootin by downloading and running from: http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
2. It will prompt for a “Distribution” – change this to “FreeDOS”.
3. At the bottom of the window ensure the “Type” is “USB Drive” and check the “Drive” is the drive letter of your USB memory stick.
4. Click on “OK” and FreeDOS will be installed onto the USB drive. At the end don't Reboot.
5. Now copy some of the extracted BIOS files onto the USB drive as well. The only files you need copy are three: go to the sub folder BIOS_ACER_3310_Windows_AOA110 & AOA150/Dos_Flash, and copy the files 3310.BAT, 3310.fd and FLASHIT.EXE to the USB stick
6. Remove your USB stick from the PC, and plug into into your switched-off Acer.

STEP 3: On your Acer:
1. Reboot the Acer and press F2 at the initial “splash screen” to go into the BIOS settings.
2. Once in the BIOS arrow across to select the Boot Menu and move the USB HDD to the top of the list (using F5 and F6 to move them up and down). (I also moved USB FDD and USB CD-ROM)
3. Press F10 to save and exit.
4. Your Acer should now boot from the USB stick.
5. The FreeDOS screen will appear with an option to select a default option. Do this.
6. You will now be presented with a list of boot options – select option 5 (FreeDOS Live CD).
7. You'll get an error message about missing CD-ROM, which you can ignore and you'll be at the DOS A: prompt.
8. At the DOS prompt go to the B: drive (i.e. type “b:”, without quotes, and hit enter – the B: drive is you USB stick) and run the the 3310.BAT script (i.e. type 3310.BAT, without the quotes, and hit enter.
9. The BIOS should now install and reboot your Acer. Click on Settings and then System to check your BIOS has updated.
10. Restart your Acer and repeat 1. and 2. above just to make sure the Boot priority order has your hard drive at the top of the screen. It will probably have reverted automatically to the original order. If not, use F5 and F6 to put back in the original order.

These are a combination from:

Use of USB ports


As i answered an other blog, there is no updates what so ever for capio 620 the ownly interesting thing you can do is turn it into a small PC with a hard drive and a CDROM
The BIOS don't support USB bootable devices even with the LEGACY option ENABLED (it's only for keyboards or mouse), but ther is a way to upgrade to a small LINUX OS, open the box and you will notice a IDE heather on the board, the problem is it's not a standard 40 pin IDE heather, it's a mini IDE like for laptop HDD's, so what i did is i've purchessed two IDE adaptors from MINI do standard IDE, spliced the power cable for powering the devices, conected a standard flat 40 pin IDE ribbon cable to both adapters and VOILA i have a verry thin silent computer with a 15GB (MASTER) hard drive and a 52X CDROM (SLAVE), obviously with that hardware i can't close the box anny more but i'm running LINUX (DSL) fine.
