Int18 network boot and ASUS A7SC

Friends, I am in Chimoio, Mocambique, on a v e r y s l o w internet connection working for a NGO as a volunteer. I am building a thin client solution in Edubuntu Linux and need to boot over the network using computers with ASUS A7SC with SiS900 PCI Fast Ethernet to get to the server. Bios provides the option called Int18 which I thought means the ability to boot over the network. I get the message "boot disk failure - insert system disk". With the hard drive connected this computer works just fine and I am actually sing it to write this message. This works great from my Compaq Armada M700 using the F12 option. Should be no network configuration problem etc. everything is in the same classroom. I would appreciate help with this - it is a very cheap solution for these dirtpoor schools I am working with. Best regards RolfJ

(from my bad memory) : check BIOS, there is a option in the PCI sub-menu for the network card. You have to enable a "bios rom" option somewhere (and not only the "int18" option).

If your target PC for installation cannot network boot On any machine: * Build an Etherboot boot floppy. kanga (the installation target) has an 3Com 3c905 NIC * Download and unpack Etherboot (etherboot-5.3.9.tar.bz2 from [WWW] SourceForge in my case). * Documentation from the [WWW] Etherboot documentation page. * Make the boot floppy (insert disk into drive :). http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=4233&package_id=4250 http://etherboot.sourceforge.net/doc/html/documentation.html https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/Netboot

OS freezes after plugging in LAN cable

You could have a bad peripheral causing the lockup. Or a corrupted OS.

If you have a spare hard drive try loading the os on it and see it the issue continues. If so and you have checked out your peripherals it may be a board issue.

A7sc socket a driver

You need to find the chipset driver for the motherboard (the model number is on the motherboard. ASUS don't recognise the model number as only one motherboard.). You can use a progrem called "DriverPack Solutions" it is very good and free.

Hi There,

You have not specified your operating system do I'm directing you to the Windows XP Driver Download site for your motherboard. If you are using a different system, choose it from the OS Dropdown window just above the lsit of drivers.

Download the LAN driver and either burn it to a CD or copy to a USB flash drive and then install the driver to the Asus board.

PXE-E61 Media test failure check cable my note book is asus f3f and when this massage appear i cant connect to internet.

That message is when you have your computer set to network boot. You can disable it in the bios or change the boot order to put network after hard drive. Press probably Delete when booting to get into your bios and look for Boot Order.
