Hi,

Here is the problem.  I attempt to updated the BIOS from 1.1 to 1.2 using the Liveupdate product.  When it asked whether I wanted to do it from disk or windows, I selected windows.

Created the restore disk and seemed to go ok.  Restarted and it fails at the following text display:

"CLIENT MAC ADDR: 00 11 09 05 93 FE  GUID: FFFFFFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFFFFFFFFFF"

I the displays the following message:

"PXE-E53: No boot filename received

PXE-M0F: Exiting NVIDIA Boot Agent:"
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

Which I did.  It flashes the BIOS and restats.  I ejected the disk and it I get the same error.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Any help would be appreciatd.

I clicked enter with recovery disk and it directs.

It runs through some scripts on creating a RAM Drive.

And then it displays the following text:

"SUCCESSFULLY copied files: AWDLFH.EXE (Flash Utility)
and AWDBOOT.ROM (BIOS ROM) to the RAMDDrive!
System is ready to flash the following BIOS (RD Flash)

BIOS Model: MS-7030
BIOS Version: 1.20

Do you want to start the flash process now? (y/n)"

I selected yes and showed a status with programing flash memory without any write failures.  The screen the goes black and it reboots.  I eject the disk and I get the same exact failure detailed in the first post.  I just tried it again to be sure.

  • you have me confused

    you say you told it flash in windows

    some thing ive never attempted and dont advise doing

    but then appear to be booting to a floppy as per the usual live update way

    i suggest you d/l it again and remake the floppy

    also look in bios for any anti virus stuff

    that might be in there

    stopping it being written

    Yes, I did do it orignally in windows.   It requires you to create the restore prior to doing it.  When it failed on restart the instructions per what I posted in the first was to use the disk.  Which was where I am at now.

    Ok, I will download from this PC, check the bios, and attempt again with the new disk.

    @Luthorcrow

    When does the error message that you decribed in your first post appear ?

    Seems to me the bios flash changed your boot-settings...

    After flashing, clear the CMOS (after disconnecting the power cable !)
    Then go into bios and change to you usual settings - and look into the Boot-Priority list (usually Floppy-HDD-CD-Rom) - I hope you don't have the damn Nvidia-Bootmanager in there somewhere - caused only troubles on my sys...
    Try if this works...

    Hi,

    The boot order was floppy, harddrive, harddrive, CD ROM.  At the suggestion of tech support I changed this to harddrive only and now it get the following message:

    "Verifying DMI Pool Data ..........
    DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER"

    Which just begins the cycle again.

    Ok before I try your suggestion I want to make sure I understand what you are saying.

    Flashing is what the system recovory disk is doing when it writes?

    Clearing the CMOS, isn't that don' by pulling the battery out of the mobo?  If not how is done?

    I am not sure whether I have the Nvidia bootmanager or not.  How would I know?

    Occuring to tech support, they thought it was attempting to boot from the LAN and suggested that I set the harddrive to be the first boot device.  But that didn't solve the problem.
