D20: BIOS boot order problem

2021-09-21, 19:44 PM

I've built up a Lenovo ThinkStation from parts.  D20-4158 Dual xeon x5670, 64Gigs of RAM, etc.  We flashed the BIOS with Ver: 61KT50A using a 61j950A.iso disc.  I'm always getting an error code # 1962 No OS.  My problem now is, I can't seem to move my USB Windows 10 copy up into the BIOS Startup Sequence.

The stack now looks like this:

1 - USB FDC

2 - USB Key

3 - IDE CD: Asus Drw-24B3ST  J-(S1

4 - PCI SCSI: COSO Seagate IronWolf ZA10

5 - IDE HDD

6 - PCI BEV

7 - Open

8 - Open

 

Excluded from Boot Order:

Diskette Drive A

USB HDD: KDI-MSFT Windows 10-(USB-2

USB CDROM

 

Any Ideas??

Thanks in advance.

Success!  Again!  It was the 'ole Marvell Driver that was the bad guy.  We're into Win10 Pro and almost completed.  I want to thank you for your support.  All of you.

Next time this issue presents itself, I'll remember what to do.  And, that Shift +F10 is something I didn't know.  I'll be using it in the future.  I've got a copy of Partition Magic, but the last time I used it was 15 Years ago. (grin)

 

Thanks again,

pat

That seems a bit unusual. Have you tried selecting Win10 key from the excluded boot order list and select 'x' to include it in the primary boot order list? 

 

If that doesn't work, have you tried removing one of your other boot device options from the list first and then try including the Win10 key from the excluded boot order list?

What keys or key combinations have you tried, once selecting the Windows USB key?

Success!,,,, so far. (grin)  The over all problem here is "Operator ERROR"!  I've got half a dozen of the same exact D20-4158 installed and running very well.  So well, that the last time I fooled with the BIOS was over 5 years ago!  The on screen instructions are just a little too brief. I never thought of pushing X, always / to include.  So Thanks for the heads up.  Now, I have another problem that has to do with the SSD Seagate 1 TB that I hope to make show up as C: drive.  In WIN 10 Pro setup it asks for a Driver for you drive.  In browse, it ain't there. Do I need to put it in a different position in the stack?  Is there a "Driver" for this thing?  I assume it should work like a normal Hard Disc Drive.  Any help would be nice

 

Thanks,

Pat

The answer to your drive installation problem will depend on what port the drive is connected to within D20.  Going off memory here as I don't have a D20 board handy at the moment, but the main SATA ports intended for supporting drives in that platform should be a group of 5 blue ports along the bottom edge of the board.  Those blue ports are routed to an onboard Marvell based SATA/SAS storage controller.  So if your drive is connected to a blue SATA port, you'll likely need to provide the proper Marvell driver to the Windows installer in order for that package to see the target drive.

 

The other black SATA ports on that board all route to the southbridge (ICH10 as I recall).  There's a solid chance the Windows installer package will recognize ports on the ICH10 natively, but if needed you can also provide a proper driver for that as well.  

 

Here's the direct link to the D20 storage controller driver download section of the support site:

Situação que tive recentemente como o meu D20- para instalar o win 10, tive que entrar como win7 e os drivers da placa Marvell (que só tem na versão win7) e posteriormente migrar para win 10, Acho que a placa Marvell não se da bem com o win 10 direto. Ps. os conectores dos HDS Sata são realmente os 5 que ficam na posição direita inferior da placa.

 

 

Google translation (NateS):

Situation I had recently with my D20- to install win 10, I had to enter as win7 and the drivers for the Marvell card (which only has the win7 version) and later migrate to win 10, I think the Marvell card doesn't do well with win 10 direct. Ps. the Sata HDS connectors are actually the 5 that are in the lower right position of the board.
