DEK 265 boot error | 26 October, 2017

Our DEK 265 machine is showing this error message during starting…than it keeps re-starting in endless loops:

Diskette drive failure on drive A Fixed Disk Controller Failure

Fast ready check - Version 1.0 Copyright Arcom Control Systems Ltd. CMOS Check - Version 1.2 Copyright Arcom Control Systems Ltd. CMOS is BAD: Restoring from Eeprom

This happened after a hard drive crash. Now we have another HD, and we tried to install DOS + DEK software. But we can’t because of this error message. What can be the root cause according to you ?

Sounds like you need to go into set-up and define HDD. Does not auto-detect.

i believe someone has left a floppy disk in the drive. eject it and reboot.

That would give "ABORT, RETRY, FAIL" message.
