My boot order keeps changing!!!
« on: 02-April-08, 16:21:33 »

 :wall: I am running a P6N SLI platinum mobo, and lately my boot order keeps changing. The other day I was restoring from an image with True image, and noticed that TI reported my "D storage drive" as "C", and my C drive as "D". I looked at my boot order in the bios, and my storage drive was set in the boot order ahead of my operating system drive. Then, this morning my system would not boot at all. So, I go into my bios, and my card reader was 1st in the boot order. I don't even want my card reader in the boot order PERIOD!!! Once I removed it from the boot order, my PC booted fine again. I also have "boot from other devices" set to "No". Why is this happening??

By the way, I am running the original bios v1.1 that my board came with from a year ago.

Thanks for any help!!!

Was the image made from a D drive?
When I was installing xp64, with xp32 already on it, xp64  changed the bootorder too once it was installed, also in BIOS.
Strange but true  X-((
My c was my d and vice versa.
But by setting boot from other device,to no, now it functions normallly, or does it keep on happening?

The image file was created with the TI. It was an image file of my C drive, stored on my D drive. I would like to keep the imaging topic out of this as to avoid confusion. I only mentioned it, because that is how I discovered that my storage drive was set to boot before my operating system drive.

And, the problem is still happening with the "boot from other devices" set to "No".

Why can't I set my boot order the way I want it, and then have an option to lock it in that order? The mobo takes it upon itself to change the boot order anytime it feels like it.

Ok sorry for the misunderstanding, but I'm only trying to help :hat tip:
You can change your boot setting in your bios, second menu from top, enter, then choose boot order, enter, set in order you want with enter en cursorkeys, save with F10
How old is it, maybe your battery is slowly dying.
Please post all your specs as in my sig, so when can be more helpful, thanks in advance  :hat tip:


Or maybe your bios needs updating?
Are you familiar with bios flashing, or is that to complicated for you, cause I dont know if you build it yourself or your a good amateur, pro, whatever, with pC's
Otherwise read here:
https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=113295.0
and here:
http://www.biosflash.com/e/bios-boot-cd.htm

But remember, flashing is at YOUR own risk and us forumusers can not be held responsible for faulty flashing and ended up dead hardware!!!!
So do it only as last resort and if you know what your doing.
But as said, please post specs in your sig next, including detailed info over psu, cause those are nasty troublemakers if you've got a bad one  :biggthumbsup:

Yes, I built the system myself about a year ago. And yes I have done bios flashing on one of my other home built PC's.  I have never updated the bios on this home built, because I have never really had any serious problems. I have had my boot order change occasionally, but now it seems to do it more often.....three times in the last two days.

Here's my specs:
P6N SLI platinum mobo, BIOS Version 1.1
Dual channel DDR2-800 SDRAM 5-5-5-12
Nvidia 8800 GTS graphics card 640 mb ram
WD 74 gig Raptor HD
120 gig Maxtor 7200 rpm storage drive
Creative X-fi sound card
Corsair power supply 620 WT

Is that ram set to vendor settings or did you tweak that?
I've never seen 5-5-5-12, only 4-4-4-12, 4-4-4-15 and 5-5-5-15

Nevermind found it already.
try 5-5-5-15 and see what it does then
I'll be back   :hat tip:
