Dell Precision 670 throws "BIOS not installed!" message

Hi, I just bought this Dell Precision 670, and after starting, it displays the hard drive: SCSI 73GB, but then renders "No logical drives found" and then "BIOS not installed!" I am unable to understand what went wrong, or if the BIOS is really damaged. I don't know how the BIOS could not be installed because I can go into the setup and change settings as I like. Please help. Thanks.

I think this means that the harddrive needs to be refoarmated as the bios sees no logical drive in which the boot.ini file resides

The "BIOS not installed"refers to the SCSI adapter's BIOS, not the system BIOS. It does not install because the hard drive is empty. Access the host adapter's setup program and create logical drives.

Power on computer and enter the set up (BIOS) menu by tapping the F2 key. Hold down the <Alt> key and depress the <E> then the <F> keys in succession. This will force the motherboard to load default settings and also force the motherboard to redetect all IDE devices. Note: The selection for the floppy drive will be set to ON. If you do not have one then you must disable floppy in set up (BIOS) menu.

Upgrade hard drives on 670


There is a 2TB limit with MBR (Master Boot Record), but even a larger drive can be partitioned. So a single 4TB (biggest on the market) drive will look like several drives.
External drives that are bigger than 4TB are really several physical drives combined by an array.

RAID 1 requires optional SCSI drives, cables, and even software?

Add on SATA 3 cards to PCI are not a good idea if you are looking for speed. They just bottlenecks the throughput.
