Question about AMI American Megatrends UltraSCSI Controller (46170908004)
I’m working on a system with the following motherboard:
Board: ECS K7S5A 1.0
Bus Clock: 66 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 07.00T 04/02/01
And I am getting this message when trying to boot up.
RPL-ROM-ADR: 0007 950B BA24
Searching for Boot Record from floppy… Not Found
Searching for Boot Record from CDROM… Not Found
Searching for Boot Record from IDE-0… Not Found
Searching for Boot Record from SCSI… Not Found
Insert BOOT diskette in A:
Press any key when ready
I’m kind of confused because I just did a clean install of XP Home, downloaded all of the Hotfixes, and everything was fine until I just turned it on the other day and got the above message. No major changes were made.
Thanks in advance,
This is a strange one. Does the BIOS on your motherboard detect your hard drives at all? I'd try the lowest level first. If so, then try to boot from your XP CD ROM (hopefully this should work). Try to go into recovery console to see if your hard drive can even be mounted by the system. I'd check there.
If you still have issues,try to reflash your mobo BIOS to the most current one. Could be a flaky BIOS issue.

Tips for a great answer:
When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in
during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there
The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.
cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in Hope this helps you

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up
test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working
could be a dirty graphics card you might have remove the graphics card and clean the socket
also check your computer ram to make sure they are securely seated and the
hope this helps you
