The resources used by a server consist of interrupt request
levels (IRQs), direct memory access channels (DMAs), I/O ports,
and memory. This information is
useful when a resource configuration conflict occurs.
Conflicts in the configuration occur if:
- A device is installed that requires the same resource as another
device. (For example, if you install an ISA network adapter and an
EISA network adapter, both requesting IRQ 5 , only one
of the adapters can be configured.)
- A device resource is changed (for example, changing jumper settings).
- A device function is changed (for example, assigning COM 1
to two different serial ports).
- An installed software program requires the same resource as a
hardware device (for example, an expanded memory specification (EMS)
device driver that uses the address required by the SVGA video adapter).
The steps required to resolve a configuration error are determined
by the number and variety of hardware devices and software
programs installed in the system.
If a hardware configuration error is detected, a
configuration error message appears after the server
completes POST, but before the operating system starts. You can
bypass the error or start one of the configuration utility programs.
Use the up and down arrow keys (
to select Continue or Exit Setup,
then, press Enter.
Continue will start the Configuration/Setup Utilities
program. Exit Setup will bypass the error and load
the operating system. You can also press Esc to exit
setup and load the operating system.
To start the EISA Configuration Diskette, insert the diskette
in the diskette drive and press Esc.
The Configuration/Setup Utility program and the EISA Configuration
program configure the system hardware and PCI interrupt requests.
These programs do not consider the requirements of the operating
system or the application programs.
