    First, there was a missing microcode update installed CPU’S message
    but I upgraded the Bios to version 1.05 and the message has gone away
    but . . .

    Now when I boot I have these two lines message : Remove all disks -
    Press a key to reboot.

    When I hit a key, I see those two lines again and again. . .

    Should I update Bios back to version 1.04 or 1.03 or 1.02 . . . . or
    put my motherboard in a trash ? lollll

    Please help me. . . !

    Thanks a lot.

    Mail it to me and I'll put it in my trash :)

    Have you gone through every bios option and made sure it's set right?

    Yes I think , but what should I specifically look at or pay attention
    to in the bios ?

    By the way this a Phoenix bios . . . . I never never saw a phoenix
    bios before.

    Thanks a lot.

    Try disabling the floppy drive, make sure that the IDE/SATA/SCSI
    controller settings are set to On/Enabled and set when ever your not
    using to disable. Make sure the boot up sequence is set for booting your
    hard drive first. Have you sent an e-mail to Tyan about this?

    Next step well waiting for tyan to return your e-mail would be to try
    safe-mode bios settings or fail-safe, can't remember which is for what

    That's about as much as I can do with out seeing the board and considering
    it's not likely your in London, Ontario. I won't happen. But if you
    decide on trashing the board let me know I love to tinker.

    Floppy disabled, floppy controller disabled.

    Sata, IDE etc. . . . enabled

    Now, returning to bios version 1.0 !


    What a mess . . . .!

    Are you sure this messages come from the BIOS and not from any damaged
    master boot record? :roll:

    Try booting using a normal DOS floppy disk ...

    I used an old 6.22 Dos install disk and it booted from the floppy !

    Now how can I repair the master boot record ?

    Thanks a lot !

    Ok. Everything’s fine.

    I booted from the CD-Rom drive and installed Windows XP.

    Now I can use my second PC.

    Thanks a lot all of you !
