Boot disk for updating bios
- After the new BIOS was installed, restarted the computer and since then Windows has failed to boot into normal or safe mode but my Ubuntu Linux has had no problems booting at all (no doubt thanks to the far superior support that Linux has for RAID). - I don't think there is a problem with my Linux or Windows boot loader (since Linux is unaffected and Windows does attempt to load) and no hardware has changed since my computer was working properly.- I don't think there are any problems with my BIOS settings because Linux runs the same as before. pid=3005&dl=1#ov with BIOS version F3L installed before the upgrade.
- Startup Repair is unable to automatically repair the problem or find a solution online.Note: Using DDDP will only create a bootable partition of up to 2Gb in size, on the USB Flash Drive.If you require a larger bootable USB Flash Drive, you will have to use Diskpart to create the necessary partition on the USB Flash Drive.I followed the directions to make a bootable disk, burned the .iso, plopped in the cd, and got this error: PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F exiting PXE ROM No bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key((fyi--the directions advised me to "(1) Shut down the system while pressing the SHIFT key to completely power off.(2) Power on while pressing F2 to enter the BIOS Setup Menu.
- In BIOS I have the controllers set to PATA emulation (along with having RAID enabled of course), so they are not running as SATA drives. - I have good virus protection (Kaspersky Internet Security 2011) and it is up to date.
