Boot Fail After UPdated BIOS A7V133

Discussion in 'Asus' started by Peter Detheridge, Jan 16, 2004.

  1. While updating my bios I received a checksum error. The system then failed
    to reboot into WindowsXP.
    I was able to boot into DOS and reapplied the upadate successfully, but when
    the reboot cycle gets to loading windows, I keep getting a message PRESS ANY

    I have tried rebooting to Recovery Console and run FIXBOOT without any

    Any suggestions please?

  2. Your boot device config may be messed up, or maybe you forgot a
    non-bootable floppy in the drive. "Press any key to reboot" may also
    indicate that no active primary partition is present, check this via

    of the few replies I received yours is closest to the mark.
    It turned out that the primary partition from which the system boots up was
    HIDDEN. I booted into Partitionmagic from floppy and immediately saw the
    problem. I made it active again and hey presto back to normal!

    Thanks for your help
