Arc Firware boot configuration problem did not properly generate ARC for HAL and system paths is the message I get on bootup.

I have however found that waht is happening is that on boot it goes into Floppy.

I have gone into the boot section F8 and changed it to boot from HD C: then on boot it boots OK.

The problem is that on next boot it repeats the same ARC FIRMWARE problem so I do a repeat in the boot section F8.

For whatever reason when I change it to boot to HD C: it does not remain locked in to that setting but keeps reverting back to boot from floppy.

All help appreciated.
Thanks.

After setting boot sequence are you clicking F10 to save and exit and then click yes to verify save and exit?

That's what I'm saying
Once you make the boot sequence changes, Then click the F10 key to save and exit.
There will be a little screen that pops up asking if you are sure.
Click Y to accept
The system should reboot with the saved settings

In the BOOT MENU there is no provision for F10 only Esc or Enter and that is where I go each time to make the necessary change.

Not in the boot menu
Make the changes
once changes are made
click F10..
If there is no F10 then you have to look at the bottom of the screen and see what key combo is the save and exit.
If you don't save and exit the changes will not take affect.

Thanks for taking the time to assist, but as I've said there is NO provision in the boot menu to follow your recomendations.
