Re: Bios recovery floppy

unfortunately I do not know XU800, but when I was in engineering position for Intel ASP their servers had this floppy. This was not really bootable. It contained image of bios, and to activate recovery mode there was a jumper on the mainboard. All what was needed is to connect floppy to mainboard, insert recovery floppy disk and move jumper to recovery position. After powerup EEPROM recovery bootprom code starts loading image from floppy and tries to replash EEPROM bios area.
Hope it will help

Re: Bios recovery floppy

Where can I download the recovery CD? My HP Kayak XU has an error on the LCD "ERROR :( BIOS" and there is flashing red LED also. Hope you can help me with this.
