This happens if the main BIOS is corrupt. <P>Insert a BIOS flash diskette like this one and it should recover:<BR> <A HREF="http://download.fujitsu-siemens.com/download/FileDownload/fileDownload.aspx?SoftwareGUID=07F89454-959A-42A5-AFE5-ACCFC4BC56FB&FileFolder=Downloadfiles&FileTypeExtension=ZIP&FileNam" TARGET=_blank>http://download.fujitsu-siemens.com/download/FileDownload/fileDownload.aspx?SoftwareGUID=07F89454-959A-42A5-AFE5-ACCFC4BC56FB&FileFolder=Downloadfiles&FileTypeExtension=ZIP&FileNam</A> eClient=gigabyte_ga-8sgxl_ga8sgxl.zip&FileSize=465134<P>Maybe you will have to renbame the .F9 file to "AMIBOOT.ROM"

Sorry, I have no idea if this also works with CD. But there is a CD .ISO file for download as well.<P>Simply search for "GA-8SGXL" using the full text search on the FSC download page:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/support/downloads_1.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/support/downloads_1.html</A>
