Booting problems with 750i

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
recently i've taken apart my tower just to get some cable management done better, then when i plugged everything back together it gives me some error about "Nvidia Boot Agent blah blah blah" then it shows my mac address and something like DHCP. After that shows up i wait for another 10 minutes it finally exits or i just hit esc and then it gives me a Disk boot error and asks to insert system disk and hit enter. Sure i did that but then when i refreshed/restarted it it DOES the same exact thing. I've tried everything from removing my ethernet cable, turning the pc completely off then back on, turning off booting CDROM in bios,etc. I can't even get the system disk to boot since that "Nvidia error" keeps bugging the **** of me! I'm so fustrated right now and i could use your help guys.

is the bios seeing the boot drive?

Have you disabled the Floppy in both locations? Just curious. It shouldn't have reset but it may have lost your settings.

i've double checked all my wires, and their all connected, and also the bios IS seeing the boot drive. No, i use anti-static wrist bands when i do that stuff.

Also, i've reseted my CMOS and still nothing has changed. But one thing that is strang is when i use my vista home premium x32 OEM cd it goes straight to windows settings to install it, but when i use my vista x32 Ultimate OEM cd, it goes into the "Nvidia Boot Agent" error.

UPDATE: After hours of painstaking research on this problem i've come across the solution,Bad SATA cable. So for future references if anyone else has this problem, try switching to new SATA cables and make sure their in tightly.

EDIT:The reason why some people get the "Nvidia Boot Agent" error as stated because of the bad SATA cable, not working with the hdd to boot, so the "Nvidia Boot Agent" has nothing to boot off of, therefore it atempts to boot off the network. Here's what it looks like:
Quote:
Nvidia Boot Agent 220.0518
Copyright stuff
Copyright stuff
Pxe-E61: Media test failure: Check cable
PXE-MO4: Exiting Nvidia boot agent
Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter
hope it helps out if any of you fellow overclocks get in trouble!

Going to change now I've been having this issue since I've reassembled my rig.

+rep to you!

I figured it out.

It wasn't actually the cable but the way I was loading the OS. I was loading Vista with all three drives installed. I removed the other two drives and left the drive that I wanted to be the OS drive in and it worked just fine. I'll just have to add the other two drives via the disk management menu.

Hello, while working online I got a blue screen crash and ended up getting this error message when rebooting (along with the NVIDIA Boot Agent 220.0518, etc.). Should I try rebooting with a Windows XP disk (if I can find it) or could my cable have 'suddenly' gone bad?
