Recently spotted this while my home workstation was booting. It appears for a second, right before the POST screen, and is output by the MSI GeForce GTX 550 Ti I have installed:
What the hell, MSI?!
I bought a Gigabyte GA-E350N-USB3 AMD Fusion Mini-ITX board recently for a HTPC setup i’m building, during which I had problems getting a TV card to work.
In trying to troubleshoot, I removed the POST logo to find that I apparently have an Engineering Sample. Right, that’s probably why the card doesn’t work then!
A Bios update did actually sort it, but what a shock really.
Must admit I have had that myself, had a load of Biostart boards with Engineering Release BIOS’s on them, raised it with the supplier and it was correct just never had the engineering release tag taken off them but those machines were never 100% right I found.
These were the trials, tribulations, and outright rants of an IT professional on the front lines of technical support in the UK education sector. Since moved on to pastures new.
