If your server boots and then displays this error, it may be referring to one or more adaptor(s) installed and their BIOS need updating. (Though you do not need them for the server to function.) If your server will not boot due this error, you need to update the firmware via usb or network connection.

Good Luck.

Boot sequencefor mx46-533v cansomeone tellme

Hello the manual and the drivers can be downloaded here:

Normal boot sequence in bios is:

First boot device: the cd/dvd drive
And second the harddrive.

The bios window should look like this:

Press the DEL button to enter the bios during bootup.
Select the advanced option with the arrow on the keyboard and press enter.
Scrool down to select first boot device
Select the cd drive.
Next select second boot device and select the harddrive.
Select to leave the bios by saving your settings you just made
Select Y to confirm and press enter.
Now you are ready to install windows.

You will maybe have to renew the CMOS battery, because its maybe low on power.

Best of luck

My pc can not shown the sata hdd drives

Hello here are the homepages:

Here are the other model ( version 3,1 )

This is important when the drivers needed to be found.

But here seems to be no drivers for windows 7.

Here is only drivers for vista and xp, and there is absolutely no guaranty, the drivers will work on windows 7.

You need to setup the bios boot settings, in order to boot from the drive.
First boot device dvd drive, and second the harddrive.
This selection is urgent, when installing windows.

Other selections maybe needed, depending on the bios version.
The sata drive, should be shown in the bios main meny, when entering the bios.

I suggest you to download the manual, if you don`t have it, and read the setup install section, for basic boot procedure.

Good luck

Motherboard erkennt festplatte nicht und empfiehlt ein biosupgrade

Hello you have to seach at the manufactures of the pc site:

By selecting the pc model manualy, or enter the serial number:

The manual is here:

The bios upgrade is here:

This mainboard is a oem board made for fujitsu, you can`t find anything, at the asus homepage.

Fujitsu has the whole support, for the mainboard.

Check the bios boot settings and check the IDE cable, and jumpers on the harddrive, BEFORE upgradeing the bios. The harddrive must be set as master:


In order so the mainboard can boot from it.

Good luck

POST and BIOS Question: Dead laptop I`ve been given a Fufitsu Amilo L6825 laptop which is faulty.( It fails to get by the POST test so doesn`t even reach the BIOS option.(It switches ON, fans run but black...

Since you swapped everything, the last option will be the on-board power supply. If it has failed, then nothing will work. As a guess, I would assume the 1.8v power supply for the CPU has quit.

Hard drive has bad sectors on it which is why its giving you that message even though you can go thru the restore. Normally going thru the system cd and then the recovery cd should bring you into windows with the device drivers installed.

What cable?

This message is displayed the motherboard attempts to preform a PXE boot. In otherwords, it is attempting to boot from the network.

This message is displayed under the following conditions:

1) No boot device (i.e. harddrive, cdrom) was detected. (Remember, even with a fresh harddrive you will get this message because the harddrive does not have an operating system tellling the BIOS it is bootable.)
2) The BIOS is configured to boot from LAN (PXE) before the hard disk drives.

To fix:

1) Power down your computer and check all power and data cables (ALSO JUMPER SETTINGS!) leading to the HDD, CD-ROMS, and other drives.
2) Hold down the key to access your BIOS while turning the computer on from a powerless state.
3) Change the boot order putting LAN (PXE) boot last: I would do CD, HDD, LAN.
4) Exit and save the changes.

Not indicating hard drive

Usually a hard drive needs to be recognized by the bios (small programe chip on the motherboard) check to see if the hard drive is listed there (if not try a seek by settings to auto ) if the harddrive is recognized but not partitionned or formatted it depends on the operations system you want to install

it is also so that for installing the OS on to the harddrive you temporairilly have to change to boot settings and usually the OS dics has to be bootable .
