Consistent hard Drive BOOT ERROR after an upgrade to MSNV-939 motherboard

Have recently upgraded my computer with MachSpeed MSNV-939 motherboard and AMD 3800+ Dual Core CPU and a brand new fan hoping to bump up the performance significantly...I had a dual-boot Windows XP and Linux Fedora environments - both were booting up OK Before upgrdae... Now, AFTER upgrade I was consistently getting and boot error message right after "Updating DMI pool data..." booter message - DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER... when I am doing that - it boots up newly installed Windows XP and things seem to work OK - all disks (C: and other logical drives) are visible to File Explorer and other apps ... I even ran utilities like FIXMBR and FIXBOOTSECT - but after that the **** Boot loader still gives me the message above. Any ideas what to do BESIDES "buy new harddrive" - mine is just 2 years old and was working PERFECTLY before the upgrade. Many thanks in advance! ++DAN

Re: Consistent hard Drive BOOT ERROR after an upgrade to...

You can run a disk manager for your drive however, I'll bet you will find its windows boot.ini. It may read just fine for a dual boot system but think about this. Windows can get confused real quick. I'm talking about the regestry. Take the time and do a fresh install of your Linuex and than re-install windows "clean install". I'll bet everything works out just fine. When 1 changes MB's there is a whole list of new drivers PCI devices loading into windows. Your system will run better with one copy of drivers for your new board and windows will not carry a list of old drivers and PCI devices of your old board.

Need manual for MSNV-939 MB

Hi hickoryhi138,
The motherboard your referring to is made by Mach Speed.
Click on the link provided & scroll to the bottom of the link to download the manual;
Drivers are also listed on the link.
For the manual (Only), click on the next link;
Go to page 19, Header for Front Panel Facilities: JPANEL1
Knowing what wire color is positive & which is negative varies from case to case. Check the group of front panel wires. Most likely one wire from each 2-pin connector will share the same color. Like the color white which is common for ground/negative. Other colors, blue, green & red are commonly positive. The only exception is the speaker wires. Mach speed only uses two wires across four pins. Black is most common for ground & red is for positive.

Good luck hickoryhi138!
Thanks for using FixYa.

Very slow booting

If you're going to plug-in a video card you need to turn off the onboard video chip. Otherwise It sounds like a cold problem, you could heat areas of the motherboard with a hairdryer to find out..

No boot on start up all fans start but no video

I had same problem!
I figured there was something wrong with my memory because that is what the manual says the constant beeps mean.
I bought a new PNY memory stick 1 gb DDR and got the same beeps when i put it in.
So being totally disappointed I tried putting the Stick in the #3 DIMM. I booted up and IT WORKED!
I have not called tech support or tried both 1 & 3 DIMM together but I will try after I set up the rest of my computer.
