When the system starts up there is usually a key to hit for SETUP, usually ESC, F1, F4, or DEL

Find it, and hit it at the right time.

You will enter the CMOS or BIOS setup.

Once there, locate the BOOT SEQUENCE section and allow a USB boot or external component Boot to be placed int he sequence it it MIGHT work.

Not sure what you're trying to boot from USB for.

Tips:

  1. Recheck the boot order in BIOS (Step 1).The number one reason a bootable flash drive or other USB device won'tboot is because BIOS is not configured to check the USB port first.
  2. Didn't find a "USB Device" boot order listing in BIOS?If your computer was manufactured around 2001 or before, it may nothave this ability. If your computer is newer, check for some other waysthat the USB option might be worded. In some BIOS versions, it's called"Removable Devices" or "External Devices".
  3. Switch to another USB port. The BIOS on some motherboards only check the first few USB ports. Switch to another USB port and restart your computer.
  4. Copy the files to the USB device again.If you created the bootable flash drive or external hard driveyourself, which you probably did, repeat whatever steps you took again.You may have made a mistake before or missed an important file.

SOURCE: IBM NetVista boot Prob

Just to add my two cents. The J on the model number stands for Japan--Japanese. The OS install was probably in Japanese also . Here is a link for the BIOS flash. http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4MBUDT
You'll need another computer to work with if yours is down. And remember, when you work in DOS in XP you will need to use the command line. (cmd typed in run) you make this on a diskette then boot the pc with the diskette. It should make the BIOS readable. Then you can change your boot order. You will need a full version OS to put back on. The drivers for this machine are here:http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4S237K#bios

SOURCE: USB 2 PCI card installation on IBM NetVista with MS Vista

Lucy,

USB 2.0 cards require 2 IRQs.

  • 1 IRQ supports USB 1.1
  • and the other the Enhanced (USB 2.0) controller.
Installing the USB 2.0 card in a slot that does NOT share an IRQ or shares an IRQ with onboard USB produces the best result. Consult your motherboard manual or online guide to determine which PCI slot is best for you.

You should also try disabling the on board USB support from BIOS setup.

Thanks
Iqbal

Will try to make a long story short...Attempting to install Windows XP Prof. on a friend's IBM NetVista 6645 Model W2U which he purchased from someplace. It already has XP Prof. installed, but my friend...

Can you get into the BIOS configuration to enable the CD and USB drive?
If so enable these devices.
Check the interior of the desktop to see if the CD drive and USB connectors are still connected.

IBM Netvista desktop bios problem

First of all if you re formatted the drive You have lost ALL of the information on that drive. Next you don't need to go through BIOS in order to boot from a disk. You can press F8 on the screen that you would normally enter BIOS with.

Hope This Helps
All The Best,

I have netvista 6578rbg, it can boot from the hard disk

Hi lyonson, I gather at one time the drive did function with Vista? IBM has some fix on their web site. Click this link below.

http://www.ibm.com/search/?v=14&en=utf&lang=en&cc=us&hpp=10&catx=Y1zkzPzk6z93z46zP7&q=netvista+6578rbg&cp=&lv=c&cat=k6&x=12&y=10
Even if one of these fix's does not match your exact model no# . Try one that is close. If it does not help call IBM. I assure you it is not your PC but Vista. (There has been & will continue to be more down time with MS's Vista than any other previous version of windows to date). If non of IBM's files listed help you, please call IBM from this link. http://www-304.ibm.com/jct03004c/support/operations/us/en/contracts?cm_re=masthead-_-myibm-_-cs-contracts

I wish I could help more but other suggestions involve erasing the drive & that's not a good idea if you have data on it.
I would appreciate it if IBM solves this issue or one of the firmware’s fix your issue & you post the results. I’d call IBM my self if I had all needed information written on the NetVista PC.

Good Luck!
Mike
