My System

WinXP bootup devices?


Running WinXp, Home, SP2

I have a device (4th bootup device) that says:
"4th boot Device [IBA GE Slot 0208 v1210]".
Any ideas as to what this may be?

thanks,
savagcl

Where are you seeing this - in the BIOS, the Device Manager or elsewhere?

I did a bit of digging and came up with this:

Quote:
RM 1400s are set up with the following Boot Control order:

• +Removable Devices
• CD-ROM Drive
• IBA GE Slot 0218 v1216
• +Hard Drive
• IBA GE Slot 0219 v1216 where “IBA GE Slot 0218/19 v1216” identifies the NIC1 or NIC2 Gigabit Ethernet ports of the motherboard.
from here:

So it looks like it's a way of booting from the LAN. It's not something I've come across before, I'll have to see what else I can find out about it.

Been doing some searching myself.
IBA = Intel Boot Device (for booting from a NIC).

While i have no use for it (i think)), no server here just an end user PC. I do have a intel ethernet device so i guess it needed......
Guess its built into the BIOS and i never noticed it before.


Thank you, this narrows it down some.
