  • VIA 5000 -- slow boot (pre-OS)

    I'm using the via 5000 with the eden 533 Mhz... and when i boot, there are a couple of things that seem to be slowing down the bios to OS transition.

    1) it says "Press <ESC> key for network boot options menu" and waits for a few seconds. is there any way to disable this? i've been through the bios settings and found nothing.

    2) i get some sort of PXE-61 Media failure message, and then PXE-61 exiting message. don't know what this is either. i can get the specific message if that'll help anyone.

    other hardware attached is just the harddrive (WD 13 gig)

    any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    I have the same probs, i dont think there is a BIOS option to disable the network boot screen, it never showed up before I updated my BIOS. So I would try going back a previous version or 2 of the BIOS (which is what Im gonna do)

      If you hit the key it says to edit the options (I forget it now.. don't have it hooked up to see) You have the option for it to boot local drives first before trying to do a PXE boot (network boot). The delay is the PXE boot rom trying to find a DHCP server to get an address and info from where to boot from.

          well its nice to know i'm not alone... tragic though.

          anyway, as per callahan's instructions, i hit the esc key to go to the network options... and you CAN put local drives first. EXCEPT it only holds for that boot. i'll try to get an answer out of VIA and let you guys know.

                        Places to look in the BIOS setup:
                        BOOT ORDER. Make sure network isn't listed as a choice.
                        If there's an option to allow Wake On Lan, disable that, as well.
                        If there is an option to boot from network or allow network boot, make certain that's disabled as well.

                        Valid point...
                        I can't count the number of times I've tweaked settings and blindly (and also rather rapidly) exited out without saving, only to slap myself on the head and yell D'OH and then go back intot he bios to redo all the tweaks....
                        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                        How about the Wiki?
