PE1650 32-Bit Diags won't boot

Jump to solution

 

I just ran firmware updates through the SBUU and SUU just fine, then rebooted with the 32-bit diags cd in the drive.  It gets stuck while booting, the last thing it prints is "Volume in drive 😧 is RAMDISK 8.0" and it just sits there.  Any ideas? I've tried a few different CD's of the same diag version, so it's not a faulty burn or anything like that.

Sounds like it may be a problem with the version of 32 Bit Diagnostics that you are using. I recomend using version 5109A1, 5109.2

Perfect!! a nice slow 8x burn is recommended, since the iso is so small (failed at 40x for me), but the right version definitely made the difference. Thanks very much for the quick reply!
