Question about MSI MS-9105 (MS-9105-030) Motherboard

Msi ms-9105 dvd boot

I cannot set the BIOS [tried the obvious boot order changes] so that my OS DVD will boot-get error message about failure, or other error. Even XP Pro will not boot. Could the attachment of the DVD drive affect the boot? DVd now attached to a PCI card slot via a SIIG card. DVD plays movies no problem. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Hello the best way to troubleshoot is to look in the manual
download here:

The file needs to be unziped before you can read it.
You also need a pdf reader (adobe) to read content.

If other files needed select in the download box.

Good luck

Well first off, the bios is probably going to only look for dvd drive through sata or ide not through a pci slot. and its very tricky formatting a bootable cd and getting it to run, i would suggest, if you are savy enough, to connect your hard drive to another computer and manually add boot files there instead of to the dvd, thats what i had to do one time

SOURCE: cmos checksum error after flashing the bios

I had a similar experience after upgrading my RAM. When you reset your CMOS and have default settings maybe you should check if your RAM timings are correct. I could not get mine to load with both sticks in until I fixed the timings from the default settings.

SOURCE: MSI k8ngm2-h mobo doesn't recognize PCI-E slot anymore!

Just a suggestion for you to try.
This is to check whether your PCI-E card is ok or not.
The BIOS setting option should be on PCI Express.
Take out the power cable from the hard disk - we don't want to mess around with window driver or system that might be the culprit.
Now turn on the computer, if ok, you should see some texts on your screen. This is a confirmation that your PCI-E card is still working. So then for you to work on your windows to solve the problem. Good luck.

Welcome to fixya.
-The first thing to check is your boot order in the BIOS.
-Unplug from power, remove battery wait a solid 5 minutes and try again.
-Go into the BIOS and choose the Default settings (press F9 to set defaults then F10 to save and exit).
-It sounds like it can't find a hard drive to boot from so it's looking for the Network to boot from.
-If you have an external CD/DVD drive try to boot your OS from that (after changing the boot order).If it did not work then there is a big chance that the problem is a failed hard drive.

I have no idea if I'm even in the right ball park, but anyways, I have a Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz laptop that on the top cover says Syntax, on the bottom it says Model No. GREEN736 Serial No....

Going from No wifi connection to reinstalling windows is a big difference in time and maybe documents. If your sure you can't boot and want to reinstall xp the best would be to go into your bios. Its F12 or whatever on your machine just so you get to the bios. There you can select a certain amount of memory that you have to be partioned. Simply all would go for your xp installation. With the xp disk in the drive turn on the machine and it should boot to the installation. If it doesn't your boot order is incorrect meaning the machine is trying to boot from the hard drive and you want the machine to boot from your dvd drive. So in the bios you have to make sure the default boot at least temporarily is the dvd drive. When in the bios that is real simple to change.

With the computer instructed to boot from dvd drive and disc in the dvd drive it will jump to the installation of the xp pro. If you have any questions come back with another and you should get a response as this is a fairly common question

Invalid disk system will not leave screen

that error happens when you have a nonbooteable unit inserted or when your OS master boot record gets damage and the bios doesn't find the OS boot up loader.

check in the bios the boot order settings

usually is like this

1 - Floppy
2 - Cdrom
3 - HardDisk
4 - Network

there can be more options but those 4 are what we care now. change the order in what the system checks for a boot media

like this

1 - Cdrom
2 - Harddisk
=============== place any other device in any other after # 2

If you still get the message then make sure that you laptop has a OS installed ( if it has one already) then try to repair the MBR (master boot record) using the os install cd and the recovery console ( applies to Windows XP, Vista, 7 ).

Otherwise Install a operative system in the laptop and that should take care of the message.

Error loading o.s windows xp

If you want to try booting from safe mode, start the machine and press F8 until you get a boot menu, but you getting the 'Error Loading OS' message sort of suggests your relative may have wiped the harddrive before handing the machine off to you, which would mean there will be nothing there to recover from.
Sounds as if the PC is set to boot from the harddrive, so your easiest fix would be to get into the bios settings at startup and set your 'boot order' to read from your optical drive (cd or DVD) first- Put YOUR copy of XP in and away you go!
Another option would be to go to bootdisks,com and download a Win'98 boot floppy image with CD-Rom drivers, & unzip the image to a 3.5 floppy, but that's the long way around.

I'm getting a PXE-061: Media test failure, check cable. message what do I do?

That message means that the machine can't find any OS on the local drive, so it's trying to boot from the network, and no network cable is attached.

The most obvious possiblities are:

1) There is no OS on the HDD
2) The HDD is not installed or not installed correctly
3) The BIOS boot order has the network boot before the HDD
