System wants to reinstall Windows operating system

Hi

 

I started my PC up today and as it boots up in goings into the Windows setup program rather than the usual sequence. It also gave a 0198 Security - Unauthorized BIOS update attempted which I have now sorted out as per the Lenovo web-site. Does anyone know why the system thinks it must set up Windows?

 

Thanks

Re: System wants to reinstall Windows operating system

I'm not sure what you mean by "Windows setup program", but if your PC is trying to boot into PXE, then check to make sur eyour mouse and keyboard are securely connected. In fact, I'd suggest removing and re-installing.

 

The last M50 IBMs I used were setup in the BIOS so that if there wasn't a keyboard attached, it would try to PXE boot rather then booting from the HDD. This is because that's the sequence that was selected for an "error boot" in the BIOS.

 

Hope this helps!
