Mini 10v BIOS suddenly in 'user mode' - 08-10-2010, 08:32 PM
Hi, I'm having a weird issue with my 10v.
I went to change the boot device order today and got this message:
"All items in this menu cannot be modified in user mode. If any items require changes, please consult your system supervisor"
Also all the other options are greyed out and unchangeable except for speedstep and onboard lan control.
I'd rather not open up my Mini to clear CMOS, but I guess I'll have to.
Any idea how this could have happened?
I'm using A06, which is what my 10v came with. Never flashed it or anything like that.

Didn't even have to take my 10v apart, I just used a Freedos boot disk and KILLCMOS

removing is usually sufficient......
10v Service Manual
CMOS battery Removal/Replacement
NOTE: is a pretty big job to get to the system board, just about the entire system needs to be disassembled and remember there is NO GUARANTEE that this will work
PS. You might wanna try that above solution again...and double check to make sure that you did EVERYTHING correctly BEFORE you try this....
