Precision Mobile M6800 Boot order may change when using non-certified hard drives




This article provides the information on "Precision Mobile M6800 Boot order may change when using non-certified hard drives".

Boot Order Changed.

A Dell Precision mobile M6800 stated that the system would attempt to boot to the wrong volume after the user installed a non-certified storage device.

In this case the primary hard disk drive (HDD) was replaced with a Kingston SV300 Solid State Drive (SSD)

Solution

NOTE: Dell cannot guarantee functionality with 3rd party devices that have not been tested by Dell Engineering.

As a best effort solution, Dell advised the M6800 user the following workaround:

  1. Boot into BIOS, and disable unused SATA channels. Refer to the following SATA channel map:
    • SATA 0: Primary (side slot)
    • SATA 1: Optical drive
    • SATA 4: mSATA (minicard)
    • SATA 5: Lower (secondary slot)
  2. Change the boot order according to your preferred boot device.
  3. Apply settings, exit BIOS.

Example of SATA settings for an mSATA card with optical drive and storage device in the secondary slot:
