Asus Pundit P1-AH2 Barebones System not booting

I have the system stated above, when I startup, I get the BIOS flash screen, which sometimes hangs and sometimesgoes to black before the boot loader is started. I am unable to access the BIOS via pressing the DEL button or access the post message via the TAB button. I use linux, when I manage to get past the BIOS flash screen, I get a read GRUB (B ootLoader) error. I have tried a live/startup cd but it cannot load as I have no access to the USB keyboard/mouse. I have tested the harddrive in another machine and that is fine. When open the green light indicating power is on and when I unplug the light stays on for a few seconds before fading, so I think the battery is fine. The fan works okay so there is definitely power circulating.

Any ideas what to try next??
I have no manuals for this machine, do you know where I can get them??

Problem with Pundit-R and PCI graphics card

I had a similar problem when installing a GeForce 5200 256mb PCI card in my Asus Pundit-S running winxp which I overcame when I got the sequencing of installation right.

First, Physically install the card in one of the available PCI slots. Using the onboard graphics to your monitor, boot the system. Windows will detect your new card and prompt you to install. Cancel Windows installation and use the supplied Radeon install disc for driver and program installation. After that, Reboot and enter your system's BIOS. On my system, repeatedly hitting the delete key gets me there.

Now this is where it may differ. In my BIOS, I needed to select the ADVANCED Menu followed by PCI CONFIGURATION. If your BIOS does not have the ADVANCED menu, you may have to upgrade it by downloading from the Asus Global Site. That is a whole other challenge but it is possible...hehe

The two options that need to be changed in the PCI Config Menu are:
Primary VGA BIOS -> PCI VGA Card, and
Onboard VGA -> Disabled.

Save changes and exit BIOS however, on exiting, you will need to unplug the VGA/DVI cable from your onboard port and connect it to your PCI card port. My card will not display the content unless it is plugged in from initial boot so you might have to restart your computer if you are not quick enough to catch that boot cycle.

Selecting these options should avoid any onboard conflict between devices as the Pundit-R has an onboard Radeon 9100 chip. I suspect the two same-make chips is where the conflict problem lies plus you don't need to be running the onboard graphics if you have a dedicated PCI card.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck.
