Getting BIOS not installed message as computer boots

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

BIOS not installedThis message is generated by computers with SCSI or RAID controllers when no bootable drive is detected on the controller. You'll not encounter the error message unless you have a bootable drive on the SCSI or RAID, or you want to use a SCSI or RAID drive.

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