Getting BIOS not installed message as computer boots

This message is generated by computers with SCSI or RAID controllers when no bootable drive is detected on the controller. This is not an error message unless you have a bootable drive on the SCSI or RAID or you are wanting to use a SCSI or RAID drive.

If you are not using a SCSI or RAID drive and your computer has onboard a SCSI or RAID controller, this message can be disabled by entering the computer CMOS Setup and disabling the onboard SCSI or RAID.
