With my netvista I was able to get boot options with F12 when powering up. I don't know if this will help you because I was installing a new hard drive. Larry

I cant reformat my ibm pentium 4 where can i find the advance bios i press all the functions but icant see the advance bios


Try the below steps and I hope it'll work for you.

1) Shut down the operating system and turn off your computer.
2) Press and hold down the F1 key, and then turn on the computer.
3) When an IBM or other logo is displayed or if you hear repeating beeps, release the F1 key. The IBM BIOS Setup Utility will start.
4) Select "Start Options" from the first menu.
5) From the Start Options menu, press <Enter> on the top bullet labeled "Startup Sequence" (it is above all the other options). This brings up a new "Startup Sequence" menu.
6) Change boot order as needed using arrow keys.

I just bought a refurbished netvista pent4 2.4g. from computer geeks. it has no O.S. or drivers


Dear Transtripper,

It shows that your IDE option is not enabled in the BIOS. So, enable the IDE Controller in your motherboard.

Thanks,

Using another pc, download the driver for the model of LAN card used. Goto the control panel - system - device manager and unistall the card (keep hardware attached to pc) and reboot. Use the downloaded driver to reuninstall. When it gets back online, do the same thing with any other device not working. Be sure to get the drive for the operating system used.

I have netvista 6578rbg, it can boot from the hard disk


Hi lyonson, I gather at one time the drive did function with Vista? IBM has some fix on their web site. Click this link below.

http://www.ibm.com/search/?v=14&en=utf&lang=en&cc=us&hpp=10&catx=Y1zkzPzk6z93z46zP7&q=netvista+6578rbg&cp=&lv=c&cat=k6&x=12&y=10
Even if one of these fix's does not match your exact model no# . Try one that is close. If it does not help call IBM. I assure you it is not your PC but Vista. (There has been & will continue to be more down time with MS's Vista than any other previous version of windows to date). If non of IBM's files listed help you, please call IBM from this link. http://www-304.ibm.com/jct03004c/support/operations/us/en/contracts?cm_re=masthead-_-myibm-_-cs-contracts

I wish I could help more but other suggestions involve erasing the drive & that's not a good idea if you have data on it.
I would appreciate it if IBM solves this issue or one of the firmware’s fix your issue & you post the results. I’d call IBM my self if I had all needed information written on the NetVista PC.

Good Luck!
Mike
