Incorrect BIOS Booting Mode Settings Cause Reboot Failure to the N2510 OS After the OS Installation

Publication Date:  2012-07-25 Views:  140 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
The SuSE Linux 10 operating system (OS) is installed by using four installation CDs through the external USB CD drive. After that, the system is restarted, but the system prompts that the hard disk cannot be found.
Alarm Information
The system prompts that the hard disk cannot be found.
Handling Process
1. Reboot the system, and press Delete to check the booting mode settings in the BIOS.
2. It is found that the primary booting mode is set to booting from the CD drive, but the secondary booting mode (booting from the hard disk) is set to disable. This is why the system fails to boot from the hard disk after the installation is completed.
3. Enable booting from the hard disk. 
Root Cause
At the initial installation stage, you need to enter the BIOS to set the booting mode. Set booting from the CD drive as the primary booting mode, and set booting from the hard disk as the secondary booting mode. In normal conditions, after the second installation CD is installed, the system boots from the hard disk during the reboot. Now, the system prompts that the hard disk cannot be found, which indicates that the booting mode settings in the BIOS may be incorrect.
