Question about AMI American Megatrends UltraSCSI Controller (46170908004)

1 Answer

Weird error message on boot. BIOS error?

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
RPL-ROM_IRQ: 11
RPL-ROM-PIO: DC00

RPL-ROM-FFC: 5
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

Boot Failure
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,
Dave

    Not sure what you meant by reflashing.

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.

Forgot my old password


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

also

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

It seems that the card might be faulty. If there were incompatibility problems, they would normally show up under the operating system (Windows, Linux, etc), not during the booting process.
From your description, I suspect that the card's BIOS is corrupt. Try getting a replacement under warranty and see if the new card works normally (it should).

Booting Problem


Hi there.

You will need to open your BIOS settings, and change your boot sequence/priority so that it includes PCI cards. Save and exit, and see if it then boots.

If you need anymore help, or need me to clarify anything, I'll be happy to help.

No bootup


I've seen systems that default to booting from the latest installed drive. I suspect that your BIOS has this set. Go into the setup and check. If it has this set, set it to the drive you want to boot to. This will probably keep happening if you like to boot the system without the drive connected unless their is a BIOS update.

JFS224 change drive order


You need to get into bios to change the boot order. You can usually get into bios by tapping F12, esc, or whatever depending on who wrote your bios. Once you get into bios, you should see something like change boot order somewhere. If you don't know where it is then just keep scanning each page and you will find it. It will be called something "boot order". Use the directions on screen to change it to whatever drive you desire and you should be good to go. If you can't do it then write back and let me know.

Installing a 2 port ATA-133 IDE adapter card to a desktop w/a hard drive & DVD


I don't think you can boot off of the ATA-133 so you will have to boot off of the IDE on the mobo and have the DVD drive jumpered cable select on the 2nd IDE. Boot that way to make sure the system boots. Shut down. Then instll the ATA-133 adapter with NO DRIVES on it and boot. The system should ask you for drivers for the new hardware. Intall the drivers. Shut down. Attach the new drives to the ATA-133. Reboot. You still might have to go into admin in windows and assign drive letters to the new drives. Anyway, if you are trying to boot off of a drive on the ATA-133 adapter, I don't think you can do it. I have mostly used Asus boards with Award Bios and there was no way to point the boot process to an add-on ATA Controller.

NetRAID-2M hangs out while initializing HDDs


Here's a link to the fireware update tool you need to do the flash: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=329290&prodSeriesId=65146&swItem=ns-9915-1&prodNameId=19319&swEnvOID=54&swLang=13&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0 As for never getting the chance to boot from the floppy drive to update the drives, try using the ServeRAID controller just to flash the drives then put the NetRAID-2M controller back in.
